I highly recommend City Auto Repair!

Customer Review
★★★★★
I'm from out of state and was having trouble finding somewhere to get my car inspected and get the emissions testing required by my home state in Florida. City Auto Repair was the only place that listed emissions testing on their site and actually offers that service. Not only that but Rachael went above and beyond to make sure they had everything done I would need to submit and done to the requirements of my state. I highly recommend City Auto Repair!

Bad engine mounts, why is it a problem for you?

Failed engine mounts are an irritating issue to live with causing your car or truck to vibrate and you don't know why. At City Auto Repair in Gainesville, FL, we can help, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive and it is an easy issue to detect on a test drive.

There are a few indicators your engine mounts need to be replaced. For one, you can do a visual inspection, if they’re accessible enough - if they looked cracked, smashed, or dry-rotted, it’s probably time for new ones.  If the engine visibly shakes while it’s running, engine mounts are also likely the culprit.  However, if you are like most drivers you simply get in and drive on down the road until something is different or a light comes on!   Then you call our shop for help!
