I am going to buy a cheap 2004 CRV from work. They think it needs a wheel bearing, and it might… However I think the sounds we are hearing is a bad motor mount. When accelerating from a dead stop it makes an odd noise that sounds like a wheel bearing, but it is quiet at speed and while jerking the wheel… There is no weerrweerwerrr… In Drive if you have your foot on the brake, and hit the gas the motor rocks back further than I think it should. After looking at the mounts themselves though, the only one that looks bad is the driver’s side trans mount (near the air box). It looks like the rubber is broken… So If that is my bad mount would the motor still rock, or could I have another bad one somewhere??
Does anyone have a good test to use to find a bad mount??
Thanks in advance !!
