SOURCE: The truck won't start, Fuel

Fuel pump replaced, crank sensor replaced, coil, wires and plugs all replaced, now truck acts like it's flooding out and won't continue to run.. problem started with truck shutting itself off while driving. you could let it sit and cool off and it would restart but only for a few minutes..

SOURCE: What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from

It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.

Get a friend to open the hood and look at the engine go up or down in the engine compartment when the brakes are firmly applied and switching between reverse and drive. Look for the motor mounts for behavior where tears exist in the rubber.

Motor mount bracket attached to engine looks like a spacer broke and cant find a name or replacement

The motor mount really has no specific name other than motor mount. Its the location of the mount that determines the part that you need. Just call and parts store and tell them the location of the mount and they will usually be able to match something up for you.

When iput my car in gear i can fell the motor raise up with a thump noise also fan belt makes a winning sound

The Motor raising up issue is, you may have a worn or broken Engine or Transmission Mount, inspect the mounts by having someone or you, look at the mounts while someone else puts the car in gear. If you see the mounts move excessively, than the mounts need to be replaced. The whining or squealing Fan Belt may be a worn, glazed or loose belt. I would inspect the belt and tighten or replace as needed.

I think that the motor mounts broke but im not for sure like when u look under the car the back half of the motor dropped like 2 to 3 inches can i still drive on it like this or no

its not a good idear to keep driving your car with a broken engine mount as the engine is wipping about under load and will very soon rip off the other mounts also its putting a lot of load on the propeller shaft and drive train it would be cheaper to fix it now rather that later when the motor has fell out onto the ground ripping its self to bits in the proses

Motor Mount Replacement/Repair

Give Your Engine A New Life With A Motor Mount Replacement
A Motor Mount acts as a security mechanism for the engines, minimizing the adverse effects of frequent vibrations and oscillations that arise when driving the vehicle. No matter how powerful the engine, there is a need for some internal mechanism inside the vehicle to provide strong support to the engine and to protect it from any damage. The Motor Mount serves as essential and rigid structural support systems for the engine, enabling the vehicle to get through the irregularities of the track and other road conditions smoothly and conveniently. It secures the engine and prevents it from serious damage. Moreover, it minimizes vibration and noise on the part of engine.
Due to prolonged usage, Motor Mount will not be able to deliver its services properly. In order to avoid the risk of total breakdown of the engine, the working conditions of the motor mount needs to be checked regularly .Whenever the needs arises it should be replaced as it affects the overall performance and efficiency of the vehicle. Failure of the engine mount can seriously damage the engine .Auto-part replacements ensures the longevity of the engine and it enables you to fully utilize the benefits of smooth drive.
Points of consideration for replacing and repairing
  • Cracking of distributor caps needs to be avoided
  • Radiator hoses should not be torn.
  • Before opening the engine, firewall must be checked for clearance.
  • Engine should not be jacked directly by the oil-pan, as the pan may bend.

Replacement Procedure
  • First of all, remove the hood and all the parts required for access to engine.
  • Remove the engine mount through the bolts.
  • Secondly loose the mount to frame bolts.
  • Raise the engine slowly towards upward direction to remove the engine mount brackets and then, ultimately remove the motor mount and the engine mount fasteners; the shims locations needs to be noted down.
  • Heat shields or Drip shields must be transferred to the new mount after comparing it with old mount.
  • Progressively old Mount is replaced with the new one.

Re-intallation of Engine Mount
  • Engine Mount brackets, fasteners and shims must be installed in their original locations.
  • Mount-to frame bolts should be placed in their appropriate locations.
  • Reinstall engine, mount through bolts loosely and allow the vehicle to run two or three times so that engine mount can adjust at their accurate operating locations.
  • Finally, the engine is placed in its accurate place by pushing it inside and all the bolts are tightened.
  • Make sure that engine is properly aligned.
  • Reinstall all the removed parts.
  • Reinstall and align the hood at correct place.
