Apparently there are four mounts on my car.
- Is the one I'm referring to in this question.
- I know is good.
- Seems to be in good condition. All the bolts are tight. But last time I checked wasn't supporting any weight.
- I've never actually seen this mount. I don't know if it's good or bad. At one point this was the only mount out of the 4 that was holding any weight.
I think mount 1 needs to be replaced because it looks beat up, it's kind of soft to the touch, and I can see it's not actually supporting much of the engine's weight (if I press up and down on the engine I can see it move up and down on this mount. It's not so loose that I can move it about with my fingers but I don't think it's holding much engine weight).
My problem is I don't know where to get a replacement part. Advance Auto, Autozone, Oriely, Rock Auto, and Amazon don't seem to sell a "subframe bushing" or motor mount that looks anything like the part that I need. Heck, in the diagram they don't even have #1 pointing to the bushing, it's pointing to the metal connecting bracket that sits on the bushing. This Amazon listing actually sells all the mounts (!) except the one I need.
So umm, do they sell just a subframe bushing (part 1)? I assume the car shaking at idle is caused by a bad motor mount situation and although part 1 isn't sold as a motor mount it's kind of acting that way, isn't it? I believe a new part 1 will fix my problem but I don't know where to get one.
