Motor mounts, transmission mounts, torque rods, and bushings are something that people often don’t notice them failing because they gradually get worse over time. What does this mean to you? A lot. I have had people say, “my boyfriend says its more of just a comfort thing”. Well, he is partially correct. But he is more wrong then correct. While it is a buffer to isolate vibrations and harshness from torque in the driveline, it also keeps your driveline in alignment with other components for optimum efficiency. When you have worn mounting components, it allows the driveline to move itself, rather than transfer the energy to the drive tires and then to the ground. All that shifting around is just wasted energy. That wasted energy on starting froward motion is a huge fuel loss. Along with it being inefficient it is unsafe. When they design vehicles, they assume the driveline will have certain characteristics for a collision that aren’t there when your driveline is floating in the body. When you are having your vehicle serviced ask for them to check all your mounts. Give us a call to set up an inspection. 770-427-0996 or www.Dalton-Auto.com.
