the noise comes and goes, when i press the gas and release it, pops like a gear or bolt is lose, it comes and goes. one mecanic said it sounds like a transmision mount or something inside the transmission is going bad
anyone with a honda civic hybrid with cvt transmission ever had this noise.

    Did the 'mechanic' VISUALLY inspect the mount? Put the parking brake on , hold the brake pedal , put it in drive and reverse , goosing the gas pedal each time , does it make the noise? If so , next step is to actually open the hood and watch the mount(s) for play/noise , while repeating that procedure. Do you have extended warranty on it?

    yes the mechanic did hold brake and press gas and opened the hood and rocked the engine back and forth. thats when he said it was a bad mount. i have a warranty but they dont cover the mounts. i replaced the lower mount underneath but that didnt stop the noise, it still pops on and off, sometimes loud. I want to know what to expect when i take it to the dealer. i dont want to be charged for a tranmission problem when its a tranmission mount or motor mount.

    It's usually the mount on top , at the side.(pass. side fender)Did you check at the dealer to see if it was under the 5/60 powertrain coverage?
