Loose Engine Mount Bolt

Recommended Posts

So the other day I turned on my car and heard a changing sound. I looked around while my son turned the wheel and I saw that what I believe is a loose engine mount bolt. I tried to put it back in, but I don't know if it's cross threaded or if it's stripped. I am not sure what to do.


I can't take it out because the bolt is too long and it hits the frame. Do I bring it to a shop or a dealer? I put it as tight as aI can for now, it was only about 5-6 turns.


I uploaded a pic of where the bolt is. I have a video too if you guys need.

If you tried tightening it with a wrench/ratchet before putting it in my hand a few turns, then yeah, you probably cross-threaded it.


Never, EVER try tightening something with high torque (ie, a wrench/ratchet) without making sure it is threaded properly first. That especially goes for anything that is threaded into aluminum or any other soft material.
