I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado with the 5.3 motor and I replaced the transmission mount because it was broken and now I feel every vibration from the engine and transmission, especially at idle. I had the motor mounts replaced and that didn't help. What can I do to fix the bad vibration?

Did the vibration start after the trans mount was replaced or before it was replaced?

I never noticed it before. Seemed to run very smooth

Then the mount was either installed backwards, or the wrong mount was installed. Where did the trans mount come from?

I ordered it online and do not remember from where

Did replacing the mount only reveal an existing vibration?
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 8 months ago

I am sorry to say it but most online stores like rock auto, sell parts that where poorly made. You would be much better off going to Oreilly's or advance auto parts and getting a good name brand mount. They are made with better quality as well as have a much better warranty, and if it does need to be replaced, the store is in town and you do not have to mail the old one back to get a new one.

Just wanted to check in on you and see how things are going. Did you get a new mount?
