I think I’m having an issue with a motor mount. Does anybody have any experience with which brands work well? I’m not seeing reviews on any of them.

How did you narrow it down to the front one? All I can see is the top of it and it’s difficult to tell if it’s moving much. I’ve got a strange sort of vibrating noise coming from the front passenger area. The engine looks to be able to lift up off the mount on the passenger side quite a bit so I’m going to try to replace that one first.

I replaced mine with an Anchor brand aftermarket. Front mount, 30 minute change over in my driveway. So far, no issues with the new one. Got it for $60 CDN on Ebay (partsmonkey), same brand NAPA and other jobbers sell at twice the price.

Side mounts are harder to trouble shoot, front mount can be seen beside the oil filter. Rock the SUV in park (no e-brake on) to see the movement in the mount. Also, as rbarrios mentioned, look for oil as these are hydraulic mounts full of fluid. Mine leaked all over when I removed it.

Replaced my passenger side mount and the noise went away. I also used Anchor. Anchor must get mounts from several different sources. The first one I got had threads that weren’t formed right so I got a different one. On the next one, the vacuum port was bent so the hose didn’t feel secure when put on. I looked at another one in store and same problem with vacuum port. All in all I looked at 4 different Anchor mounts and everyone of them was different. I ended up using one with a bent port, put a short piece of tubing with a thinner side wall on the nipple and then attached the hose to it.
