I replaced my motor mounts and transmission mounts about 2 months ago. And, I still feel the engine jerk when I take off fast.

Yesterday, I had my gf shift the gear, and I watched the engine move whenever she did. The mechanic says I might need to replace the mounts AGAIN, and I have to pay for labor because I got the mounts myself.

Anyone has an idea of what's going on? I'm getting depressed

I really don't know much about snub mounts. Any idea what they cost, and how many I need to replace?
There is just 1 snub mount, and its behind the front bumper support, it is a little rubber piece that cushions the bump of the forward motion of the engine when u shift (Thanks Newton!). The stock one is pretty squishy. You should notice much tighter and crisper shifts with an aftermarket one.

Aftermarket ones are higher quality rubber.... they range from $20-$50

This one has had good ratings from what Ive read, Im thinking about ordering one soon!


Replacing it is about an hour job.
