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.

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!!

I was surprised when I took my car in to be serviced and they told me that I needed 3 motor mounts replaced. I could only replace 2 and $800 later I still don't understand why this happened. Seems to me that when you have something that hold your motor, it shouldn't fall apart after only about 100,000 miles.

Motor mounts shot

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.
Motor mounts shot. engine shaking and jerking on acceleration and deceleration. Have not yet repaired.

Had a motor mount replaced a few years ago at 140000 miles now other one needs replacing at 168000. First one cost about $250 to replace at my mechanic.

The mount in question is a Torque Strut Mount which becomes cracked prematurely.

Went to my mechanic on other issues and he immediately saw the motor mount was close to busted and about 2,000 miles it just gave out and now it's the most annoying problem I have with this car. Each mount to fix will be $150 to fix.

I have not got it fix
Loud shaking and vibration of motor when in park and when I start the engine. It runs fine when in drive but when I come to a light or stop sign it vibrates horribly! The problem is getting worse and louder. Time to get it fixed but motor mounts are expensive!

2.5 SE 4 cylinder, 4 - door loud knock when started in park, pulls to the right when driving (air pressure is correct, tires balanced and wheels are aligned)...I can feel the vibration of the engine as if it's running rough, which it isn't - right motor mount is the likely suspect. I saw where I can get the part on ebay for @$30 and fix it myself fairly easily per a youtube video.
