Actually you got my post wrong. Hydraulic mounts may have some rubber part but the functionality of hydraulic mount doesn't mainly rely on that rubber part.

Default Re: Hydraulic Engine Mounts vs Rubber Engine Mounts

Hi Amalji, I am also looking at doing the same in my 4 year old Etios V. What else can be done to address the NVH levels? I had 3M underbody quoting done at the time of purchase, which was supposed to slightly bring down the noise level. Now that the coating is more than 4 years old, should I go in for another round of 3 M coating?

Should we go for rubberised coating for wheel wells to improve the NVH levels further?

The very evident differences that I could feel are
  • better vibration control during cranking up/switching off the engine. Feels very subtle now.
  • Once the engine warms up, even the sound seems to have come down.
I would like to start a discussion on the positives/negatives of a hydraulic engine mount and the technical reasons why it is so.

One negative, I've heard about the hydraulic mount is that there is more torque loss ( on the wheels ) compared to the rubber mount.
Another one is its durability.

Hoping for an interesting discussion on the same.

Reference posts regarding my personal experience with the replacements -
