Default $1m question solved. Vibrations and humming noise.

Gday all. Lately I have been having same headache as many patrol owners and other motor car owners concerning vibrations and humming RPM related .
I eventually replaced back my old engine mounts . Vibration solved! Clearly the aftermarket mounts are not upto spec . Yes we all know in the corner of our minds cheaper means lower quality. Anyway ...... Idle vibration and humming gone, but still judder at spent ine shut down . Now all I have to do is fork out some hard cash and buy OE Nissan engine mounts .please post if anyone has this problem and does get new mounts and what difference it has made.
Happy again......

Lol. I tried to post in as many . I'm not very good with writing and posting. Sorry��
But it has stopped the vibration AND humming noise RPM related. Aftermarket ones just seem to solid.

I had to take away this matter . It was driving me crazy . I read somany same problems. Did everything possible to find what's causing it. Removed exhaust brackets . Tightend body bushes, heat shields , removed fan too lol. Then I just had to prove I was wrong that aftermarket engine mounts couldn't be that s..t�� . Just popped old ones back!! Upset I spend money on the AM ones. Dam!! I nearly changed flywheel , harmonic balancer, ? Some people were just giving wrong advice.
Hope this helps. Good luck.����

Agreed. I tried AM mounts and they were too hard, noise and vibration. Went back to genuine and it was like night and day, much quieter.

I have an aftermarket engine mount on mine for seven years or so, and it's going good. No such vibrations. It's the exhaust side one.(The thicker engine mount with thicker piece of rubber).
I had to remove it last year to do a welch plug. It looked as good as new.(RB30 Patrol).

I haven't tried anything and nothing has changed on mine. It didn't do it before and doesn't do it now.

The reason for exhaust side engine mount replacement was the accidental discovery of completely cracked & severed engine mount rubber during a welch plug job by the mechanic some seven odd years ago. It wasn't vibrating or anything, but the mechanic suggested it needs to be replaced or the engine can start vibrating by causing the other engine mount to give way.
I reckon since the engine's turning clockwise the broken mount on exhaust side wasn't causing as much vibration to be able to notice it clearly, but would've been a different story if the mount on the other side was bad.

I guess it depends on who makes which mount. I am sure out there there are great AM mounts OE quality. That's the manufacture is dedicated in using good rubber. So many aftermarket engine mount makers, it's just finding who's is the closest to original.
Thank you guys for the replies.
