My motor mounts also went bad around the 100,000. $500 to replace 2, front and passenger side. Seems like this should be a recall.
Dealer diagnosed faulty motor mounts. Looking for input on what this might cost away from a dealer.
Had to replace front and side broken engine mounts. Acura technician reported cracked three months ago.
1999 Acura 3.2 TL 6 cylinder. My motor mount(s) are broken. Not sure which one yet but i'll have someone look tomorrow. Any tips or suggestions when looking and replacing broken mount(s)?
The engine mounts had to be replaced and it was done by the dealer. The cost was $217.60 for the parts and $390 for labor.
My engine mounts have been replaced 3 times, approximately every 100,000 miles. this time all engine mounts are being replaced at the same time. Not a big problem considering the vehicle mileage
Yup same here motor mouths go bad to fast on these car I love honda but come on I expected a lot more from Acura! Disappointed
Auto transmission failed while on road trip. While replacing the trans, discovered motor mounts needed replacement.
Acura TL's are nice cars. I have a front motor mount brak. How i found out that it was broke, one day just looking for a new car to replace the Acura. My sales guy test drove it and it ran excellent, but he went to open the engine he showed me. The engine actually lifted up when he put it in gear. Taken to mechanics diagnosis and price quotes. $150.00 dollars for the part. But the labor is gonna get me. Havent gotten it fixed yet.
I had the front engine mount replaced (when putting car into reverse I was getting heavy thump as transmission engaged).
About a year and a half I was told it was shot again, along with the passenger side mount. Mechanic said the side mounts should have been replaced earlier, that's why the front mount went out so early.

Now I'm getting same symptoms again when engaging reverse.
Rattling noise on passenger front side for a few months when going over bumps. Then one day, I cold started the car and heard some rumbling, and it continued so I turned off the engine, and the noise came to slow stop. Started up again the next day, heard the rumbling during start, and drove directly to the shop. I was told the front mount has collapsed onto the bracket, and the side mount needs to be replaced too. Came close to $600 for both front and side mounts.
I had to put motor mounts on. If your airbag light comes on. It maybe your seatbelt buckler. They have recalls on them but the dealers are not suppose to tell you until your light comes on.
Passenger side front motor mount broke at about 60k. I have two Acuras, both experienced the same problem.
The Acura service mechanic said both front and rear engine mounts were cracked. Seemed premature , but the car was 10 years old so I changed them for peace of mind.
Engine mounts had to be replaced, two months later the transmission died.
This was my third and last Acura.
During a scheduled maintenance visit they found two cracked motor mounts and replaced them. Would have been about $500 but I had an extended warranty that covered it.
