About transmission mount
Today the transmission mount is one of the many drivetrain mounts found on most cars and trucks. Most vehicles are installed with at least one and two or three engine mounts and at least two or more transmission mounts. The transmission mount keeps the transmission protected and secured underneath the hood along with bell housing bolts.
What is the purpose of transmission mount?
Mounts of the engine and the transmission are necessary to sustain, maintain and isolate the vibration that occurs when the engine runs. The mounts act as an insulator between the frame and the engine components
How transmission mount works?
Two key components in any mount are the transmission mount bracket and the mount itself. The frame is also in stainless steel. The mount consists of a urethane or rubber bushing, which is attached, welded and chemically bonded to the transmission frame. Vehicle transmission is protected by the frame. Rubber or urethane bushing isolates the drive train vibration and reduces the noise level inside the car.
Where is transmission mount located?
In front-wheel-drive (FWD) cars and minivans with transverse-mounted engines, the left and right engine / transmission mounts and a third mount above or below triangulate assistance.
