Nissan Altima Right Side Engine Mount May Wear and Cause Excessive Movement
Nissan Altima Problem
Engines Affected: 2.5L 4 Cylinder, 3.5L V6
Average Mileage: 101,556 mi (35,000 mi - 280,000 mi)
My engine would knock real bad whenever i shifted from R to D or P to D also if I was stopped with the car in D, it was so bad that i would shift slowly (like it helped) anyway, my friend is a mechanic and looked at it turns out all my mounts were cracked and needed to be replaced. I ordered all of them for about 85 a piece and had him change them for 120. Not bad but thats only because he was a real good friend.......
Good luck to anyone with this type of problem, its never fun having to hear something major is wrong with your car, the expense is always bad!!

The right side engine mount was cracked and Nissan claims that this is just normal wear and tear.

Right side motor mount is cracked all the way through. This car has been nothing but problems and Nissan always acts like its normal wear and tear. TPMS sensors have to be replaced once a year. I have a 96 Honda Accord with 246,700 miles and have only replaced, plugs, oil, muffler, timing belt, tires and fluids. Nissans are junk and Nissan does not stand behind the junk they make.

Engine moves and makes clunk-like sound when starting from full stop. Feels like transmission is engaging hard. Took to dealer while still under warranty. Nissan dealer replaced two motor mounts. Much better after dealer replaced two motor mounts but could still feel a slight tug when starting from a stop. Took it back to dealership and was told it is fine, could not duplicate problem. Problem has slowly been getting worse. Recently noted rubber is torn in upper passenger-side motor mount.
broken motor mount, failed cam and crank sensor
