Failed engine mounts are an irritating issue to live with causing your car or truck to vibrate and you don't know why. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we can help, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive and it is an easy issue to detect on a test drive.
There are a few indicators your engine mounts need to be replaced. For one, you can do a visual inspection, if they’re accessible enough - if they looked cracked, smashed, or dry-rotted, it’s probably time for new ones. If the engine visibly shakes while it’s running, engine mounts are also likely the culprit. However, if you are like most drivers you simply get in and drive on down the road until something is different or a light comes on! Then you call our shop for help!

The staff at the front desk have always been friendly to me and don't talk down to me when they are explaining any issues with my car. I've used the body shop (to get a small section painted on my car) and also the repair shop (for brakes, tires, head gasket, etc). They do have a key drop box so you can drop your car off when the shop is closed. They also will pick you up/take you home if you are having work done, although I have never personally used this service. They also offer discounts for Cornell Staff if you show your ID at the beginning of your appointment (not valid on every single service, but, worth asking about) - Katie M (5 star review found on Google)
Competent and honest mechanic, as far as I can tell. It's a fairly large operation in terms of capability on-site, but way better than going to the dealer in terms of cost, flexibility, and personal communication. Autobody on-site as well. They have a shuttle to and from Ithaca. - Jeff W (5 star review found on Google)
