2007 3 2.3L Passenger Side Motor Mount
 
As is very common on these, my 2007 2.3l passenger motor mount is blown and I need to replace it. Most of the threads with product recommendations are years old and refer to products I can no longer find such as the recommended ROCA motor mount.



I'm looking for longevity on the mount. Can you guys point me to some recommendations? As of now I'm looking at this:

Very much open to recommendations and thoughts.



Thanks!

Whoa blue!

I just put a ROCAR (RC-EM0002A) on my 2007 2.3L and I've been satisfied. I think ROCA changed to ROCAR? Definitely feels better than the one I had (may have been the original)
I think it was this one- https://www.ebay.com/itm/ROCA-Mazda3...-/173675938894

Sorry stupid question, still a little new to this. I also have an 07' 2.3L and I see a lot of people talking about rear motor mount and passenger side mount. What do they do exactly and how do I know when it needs replacing? Thanks a ton bro

If the original motor mounts are still in the car, they're probably broken or close if >10 years old or so.

All three mounts stabilize the motor and reduce its movement within the engine bay, but I believe having a firmer rear motor mount makes the biggest difference (if the other two are decent)
Most of the effect will be felt if drive a manual because if the engine is held solid it'll be less prone to lurching.

"testing" is limited to trying to move in 1st/R while holding the brake and seeing how much the engine rotates in the bay. Other than that, just lifting the load off and checking to see if it's broken/separated

Interesting, that's one of the things I've been wondering about. Sometimes when I roll off in 1st, the car will start lurching. And when I'm on the highway the car will vibrate pretty hard. Might have to check it out soon, thanks man
