If there's nothing in your engine that's out of place yet everytime you put your vehicle into a stop, you can feel that the engine is shaking, then your engine mount must be inspected. Ignoring the signs of defective engine mounts can lead to major vehicle problems such as having the accelerator stuck open. These days, the engine mounts aren't as simple as the units in the vintage vehicles. At present, they are accurately molded into various shapes, air gaps and rubber hardness. The said air gaps are called "voids" and they are responsible for tuning the mount to the vehicle's engine. There are hydraulic and electronically controlled engine mounts. The former contains chambers that are packed with silicone fluid.

If your ride has been your travel buddy for many years now, then your engine mount mounts are perhaps worn out already. The rubber can now be soaked with the oil that's coming from your leaking valve cover gasket. But most probably, the engine mounts of your driving machine have been deformed or have severe cracks by now if you already arrived at 60,000 to 70,000 mark. You should also inspect the weather-stripping positioned along the cowl of your vehicle. If it is missing or is already damaged, then that will let the outside air pass on the top of the vehicle instead of entering the grille and passing through your ride's engine compartment to bring down the temperature which keeps the engine mounts and other components under the hood cool.

In your Lexus vehicle, the engine mount that usually suffers from abuse is the unit in front of the engine and the one at the end of the belt in a transverse engine. The said engine mount is typically dragged from the front to the back and up and down. But it doesn't mean that you should neglect the other engine mounts of your ride. As you monitor the front engine mounts, you should also check the rear engine mount and the transmission mounts. The engine and transmission mounts can be changed separately. But it is good that if you replaced one, the other one should also be altered. In general, if one engine mount is damaged, the other unit is definitely not far behind.
