Mazda Mazda5 Vibration/Noise Due to Failed Engine Mount

(29 reports)

On some models, excessive engine vibration or knocking noises heard while the engine is idling, being started or switched off are usually caused by a defective engine mount at the top right side of the engine. A redesigned engine mount is available to alleviate this problem.

06 mazda5 vibrating at 45kmph. Shop said over $800 to replace engine mounts 3 and 4. PS I'm Canadian. Wish I could enter a postal code. -
replaced upper passenger side engine mount myself with aftermarket of same crappy quality. Need to replace again. it's shot. Need to find if there is a redesigned one that wont fail. -
Dang, again, just seeing this site for the first time... but, it seems like my Mazda 5 is having all the same issues. Had to have my motor mounts replaced. -
Our 2006 Mazda 5 normally runs very quietly but suddenly began making loud engine buzzing/vibration noises when at idle or low speeds. Higher speeds resulted in less noise but the noise/vibration was still there. I first suspected an exhaust leak but within a day or two the noise/vibration grew to be too much to be just an exhaust leak. I took it into a shop I trust and was told a motor mount was broken. The shop recommended I replace all three mounts at once at a cost of $840 (including labor and their "diagnostic" work). My wife's 2004 Mazda 6 (also with the same 2.3l 4-cyl engine as my 2006 Mazda 5) began exhibiting the same noise, (though much less noisy) the week prior. -
When I took my 2007 Mazda 5 in for another problem, they told me my engine mount had been replaced under warrentee. Car was quieter and handeled better after that. -
motor mount broke. I had to replace. -
I just had to have a broken motor mount changed yesterday. I see that some people are being told it will cost $800 or more. I personally would look around. The part I purchased was $156. I had multiple maintenance items taken care of at the same time, including brakes and I paid less than $500 for everything. Just beware of how much in total labor a garage is charging you. I am fortunate enough to have found a small locally owned garage that is honest and does good work. It might be worth shopping around and trying to find a shop that is not a dealer or chain. -
car shakes excessively when idling. have not fixed it yet. -
Engine mounts shot cost 1400 dollars to replace.... no recall.. now gone again.. -
Was told the Upper Right Motor Mount needs to be replaced due to leakage -
Vibration when stopped in gear. -
I just got my 2010 mazda 3 a year and a half ago when it was at 39k miles, just took it in for it's 15k checkup and things looked good, usual stuff except being told a motor mount was leaking and needed to be replaced. Estimated about $249 for that part of the work. Not too bad... at least at the dealership I know that it's being done right and the work is warrantied. -
I have fluid leaking from the engine mount of my 2009 Mazda5. I have never seen an engine mount leak fluid. This sucks royally! -
I replaced engine mounts May 2011. I just had the car oil change and inspection. They said the engine mounts need replacing again and warranty is only a eighteen months on previous part. I was out of luck at 20 months. -
On third set of motor mounts... -
Load starting vibration and noise. I removed to airbox to conirm the distruction of the drivers side upper mount. replacement from Bountiful Mazda. Mount 125$ labor 75$ not too bad. -
My steering wheel shakes when it gets between 55 and 65 miles, then even outs. Then does it again when I break. I was told I have a bad front motor mount so I hope this fixes it. -
Same issue. Mechanic told me this is very common with this model (m5). -
I had this same problem. I had to have a mechanic replace all 3 engine mounts, though I did drive the car like it was an off road vehicle. -
