Commercial trucks have heavy engines, and they spend a lot of time running, particularly at idle. As a result, the mounts that secure the engine to chassis of the truck have a tendency to wear out, causing all sorts of shaking and vibration that the driver will feel in the cab of the truck. At Autoworks in Ithaca, we can take care of that for you.
On passenger automobiles, engine mounts aren’t often a concern. However, on a big truck, engine mounts are under a lot of stress and pressure. The engine is obviously much heavier, and diesels inherently vibrate more than a gasoline engine. Add to that the amount of time they spend idling, and high mileage, and there’s a good chance you’re looking at motor mounts that are past their prime. If you notice vibration in the cab, causing dash and interior pieces to rattle around, particularly at idle, it may be time for new mounts. Not only will the truck become instantly more bearable to be in, it’s best to get mounts taken care of before they break completely and cause real damage.
Engine mounts are inexpensive and replacing them is a fairly quick procedure. If you think it may be time for new mounts on your truck, or you need any other repair or maintenance performed, our expert mechanics have you covered.
