Volvo noise when accelerating from dead stop

volvo
xc90

#1

Sometimes, when I take off from a red light or stop sign, my car makes a thump. This feels as if it is under the car, not a transmission shift noise. It would seem to me that it has to do with exhaust or fuel??? I am guessing. Any suggestions?


#2

Broken motor mount?


#3

Or possibly the sub-frames.


#4

Thanks for the comments. I will have them checked out.


#5

Check the exhaust hangers, sometimes they’ll rust and break and the add’l movement of the exhaust pipes can cause this problem.


#6

motor or trans mount?


#7

Solved. Needed bushing. Thanks!
