Why is my Transmission mount like this??
So, My problem has been a rough rattle/ vibration at about 1800 RPM's Mostly in 3rd gear. (Automatic).
Can't figure out that the heck is going on. So I tossed it in to 4x4 just for the heck of it. and it got worse. Really worse, so I took it back to the house and up on the ramps and started looking. Then I noticed this. I have had problems with a stripped bolt on one side of the mount and know that it was resting on the cross-member before. Now for some reason its about 3/4" above the support.
How can it do that??
I looked at the motor mounts, but they seem fine, What on earth could make this ride this high off of the support? I figure that its riding high and hitting the body and causing the vibration of the cab. Maybe even causing the knock sensor to adjust the way the motor runs.
