    New Car Transmission Mounts & Repairs in Hamilton

    What are the cars transmission mounts?

    New Transmisison Mounts in Hamilton NZ

    Your car’s transmission is the system that controls what gear your engine is in. It consists of many heavy parts that work together in order to change gears according to user input (manual transmission) or automatically without user input (auto transmission). Since the transmission system weighs so much, and has to transmit the engines energy / torque then transmission mounts must be used to secure the various parts.

    Transmission mounts are metal brackets with rubber inserts that hold the transmission in place. A healthy set of transmission mounts will prevent your cars transmission from vibrating and rattling while you are driving. Most transmission mounts also come with rubber blocks, which sit between the chassis of the car and the mounting bracket to prevent noise and vibrations from being transmitted through the transmission and into the body of your car.

    Transmission mounts can wear over time as the rubber part of the transmission mount can perish, crack, rip and split or come away completely from the transmission mount steel brackets. The transmission mount metal bracket can also become loose and the bolts on the transmission mount can break or rust (especially if the vehicle is near the ocean and the salt).

     

    Symptoms of failing transmission mounts:

    Car vibrating with noises while driving – A broken car transmission mount can cause your car’s transmission to vibrate and knock while driving. This can create noticeable shaking or rattling while you are accelerating. As the problem gets worse, the vibrations may be accompanied by loud clunking noises.

    Difficulty shifting gears – In some cases, faulty transmission mounts can cause the transmission to become misaligned with the chassis. This can prevent your transmission from shifting gears properly while you are driving.

    Dislodged transmission – In severe cases, the transmission may become completely dislodged and fall out of place. As well as being a huge safety risk, a dislodged transmission can cause serious damage and result in a big repair bill.

    Damaged CV joints or Universal joints – if the transmission mounts have collapsed and the engine and transmission are on incorrect angles then this can put major stress and strain on a number of car components including CV joints and driveshaft universal joints, as well as cables and wires and many other items.
