If an engine mounting problem is not attended to in a Volkswagen car, the engine and its various components may be subject to wear and tear, which can lead to further problems and can be potentially dangerous. The engine mounting helps to secure the engine firmly in the car due to its weight. If the mounting is worn out or damaged it can cause the engine to vibrate, which can interfere with the car’s performance, making it harder to control. In extreme cases, when the engine mount is failing, the engine can knock against other components and cause further damage or even break away from its mounting from the car altogether. This can lead to loss of power and risk of hitting other vehicles or objects on the road. It is best to have the engine mounting fixed soon, to avoid any potential risks.
