That silverish thing doesn't look OEM ... ... but it's good you are still close to home when it happened.

I ran into an issue with the motor inbetween Dallas and Houston one time .... yeah ... lets just say a rescue team from either end was a 3-4 hour wait ...

Now can this happen to any motor mount, I mean even if you don't have a spiced up engine can a regular mount just snap on you ?
I thought that those mounts were good like forever LOL
