Your fleet or commercial vehicles are heavy duty machines that see a lot of wear and tear. When your engine mounts begin to fail, sometimes it feels like the whole vehicle is falling apart. Get your vehicle back into shape with the professional technicians at KG Truck & Auto in Glen Burnie, MD.
Engine mounts are simple components – they’re essentially tough rubber dampeners that separate the engine from the frame. If they begin to crack, dry-rot, or fall apart, the engine is allowed to move, and vibrations are transferred more directly from the engine to the vehicle.
Sometimes, you can tell one is bad just by looking at it, or you can see the engine visibly shaking with the truck running. Other times, it may only become apparent while sitting at a stoplight in drive, or when you begin to accelerate, making it difficult to do a visual check. However, if you are feeling or hearing vibrations while sitting at a standstill, your mounts are most likely to blame.
Don’t wait to have them replaced. They’re inexpensive, and extremely irritating once they’ve failed. It’s also possible for the vibrations of the engine to damage other components if the mounts aren’t addressed fast enough.
No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best fleet and commercial service shop in Glen Burnie, MD, call or stop by KG Truck & Auto today.
