    Default Rear engine stabalizer mount

    Ive been told by my local dealer, Quest Motors in Braintree, that when you release the clutch pedal and put your foot on the accelorator on all vectra c's you will get what I can only describe as the engine rocking backwards and forwards. It feels like one of the engine mounts is loose and worn but ive had both front and rear stabalizer mounts replaced under warranty but it still does it. Is this true, and if not, what could it be?

    the mounts are under the 3 year plan, so just take it back and get them changed.

    all engines move to a degree, they have to, it's a natural reaction to the torque they are producing..anyone that's seen a car rolling roaded will testify that the engine moves quite a lot when it's under power..

    should it knock..not really, but getting VX to find it may be a bit hard as all they do is prybar the mounts to see if they're worn out.try getting them to testdrive the car..
