I've been noticing in the cold weather when my machine takes a bit more cranking to take off, it really gets the hood flopping around after a few seconds and the motor starts to take off. It's gotten progressively worse, so I decided to pop the hood and investigate. I've got at least a 1/16" between the top of my rubber mount and the large washer. None of the motor mount rubbers are split or failing, but every one has this gap that I know shouldn't be there. I can pry up on the mount plate lightly and move my engine up and down almost a full inch before the rubber gives any substantial resistance. Going to call the dealership and see what gives, it's still under warranty, only has 125 hours on it. Anyone else notice their motor mounts are compressing and not holding tight anymore?
