The front motor mount has broken 4 times while we've owned this 1997 Honda Accord (from ~90k to 140k miles). Last replacement was about 3 months ago at which time the driver's side motor mount was also replaced and the car was taken to a dealership for an inspection of all the motor mounts. The dealer reported all motor mounts and drive axles were ok at that time (as a side note, both drive axles were replaced due to worn CV joints just after the 2nd motor mount replacement). Despite all our previous efforts, upon inspection yesterday we found the front motor mount is broken again. Is there a design problem with the front motor mount on this model Accord or is this a symptom of something amiss with this car?
Steering wheel vibrations when at idle but the vibrations gone once the car is moving.
it only vibrates when it stops when is running doesnt. but my check engine light is on could that be doing that?
Bad vibration while car is idleing,major vibration in dash
bad vibration while on highway.
high vibration on the engine and steering wheel while driving at constant speed 100 -110 mph, as well as delay of acceleration and shifting gear 1st to 2nd. engine rough condition.
Rough rattling in steering wheel at idle only,once car is in motion it goes away.
The car would jump and rattle when taking the car from Park to drive or when I stop at the stop sign and pull off it would shake as well.
broken motor mounts and very little instructions on how to replace them on this particular model (LX) Accord.
Had to replace side engine mount. Got it online at Amazon $50.00 three screws and jack up the engine slightly... all done.
Engine vibrate when I apply the brake paddle
While driving my car approx. 35 mph the car started to making clunk sounds ever time I turned the wheel. I immediately pulled over put the car in park and the car made a loud noise. I turned the car off turn it back on no sound. Until I put the car in drive or reverse. Car doesnt move just makes weird sounds when in those two gears. Soon as I try to put the gear back into park the sound gets louder until the car is turned off again. What do you think is the problem.
broken motor mounts.. Honda did not replace under warranty so took to another mechanic and had it done cheaper. NOT happy that they would not take care of since it is a known problem
began shaking after sitting at a stop light and then began from from passenger side then began shaking across the dash board. gets bad when i am at the stop light
Kicks in and out of overdrI've at 45mph,won't shirt into overdrive
My engine made a clunk sound when shifted and vibrated the steering wheel and dash and the engine was moving up and down.Now,I have just 1 mount to fix.Very expensive on a 2001 Honda Accord EX.The dealer I got it from cheated me.This car has so much wrong with it and I just bought it.Spent over 3100 dollars so far.El Paso Honda is so damn crooked!
I had to replace the motor mount 3 times when I owned the car between 100k miles and 167k miles
Car was vibrating inside more than usual. Replaced Front engine mounts. Vibration went down.
Vibrations when starting engine, reversing, and driving at a slow pace.
These have been replaced a few times already. A common defect for 2001 Accords. Nothing to do with my driving or non-dealer mechanics.
