    Failed engine mounts are an irritating issue to live with causing your car or truck to vibrate and you don't know why. At Melvin's Auto & Truck Repair in St Augustine, 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!

  • Tire Light On! Yes, there is a problem!

    When your light comes on, it is ALWAYS important to look at the issue to see if it is a problem.  Especially if it is a light we all understand.  Tire pressure is one we all can relate to and an easy one to look at.  However, most drivers just assume the air is low in them and ignore it which is not a good idea especially when you are driving a 4x4 diesel truck off-roading and could have picked up anything and/or everything like this truck tire did.
