I know that many will reply (to the effect) that the engine will vibrate in excess with load. My addon question is that - if a motor mount is NOT broken - does it wear(?) - to the point that replacing a worn motor mount will improve (absorb) engine vibration?
Excessive vibration while the car is @ a stop light and I think u can check by having ur car on, have the hood open, put ur foot on the brake, look forward through the crack and to c how much the engine goes up and down while u shift through gears, also If hear hard knocks. Call ur nearest Acura dealership and ask some one from parts or service, they should b able to answer that ? 4 u. And I don't think u can c the engine mounts, myb when the engine is going up and down through the shifting. Hope that helped!. Latin............
I got my rear tranny mount for around 125 from the dealer a year or so ago.. It is a relatively easy fix once your car is off the ground and you are able to stand underneath it, so a good mechanic should be able to do it in a minimal amount of time..
Since are legends are not getting any younger, If you haven't changed to rear tranny mount, you should have it looked at.. I didn't even know mine was busted untill I took a close look at it. It really depends on how it breaks, as to how much of a clunk or hard shift you get..
As for engine mounts, A year ago I changed the engine in my coupe but I kept the original engine mounts.. You don't usually need to change your engine mounts at all, Unless one them breaks, and believe me, you will know if one is broken
