Re: 2005 maxima motor (F) mount
Hi best advice is to look at how the mounting is secured to chassis and usually a steel bracket which securec to engine ? if so then i would support engine under neath with hydraulic trolly jack and block thenundo the chassis mounting bolts/nuts ? then just gently lift engine slightly enough to take weight off mounting ? then if you remove bolts from bracket to engine fixing so the mounting will remove complete with bracket and mounting block after raising engine again to ease removal then renew mount block to bracket but do not tighten bolts/nuts untill you have repositioned into place again on engine then resecure bracket to engine 1st this will leave a little movement on mount as you lower engine down again and locate bolt holes? hope this helps not too difficult diy iob just have a little patience

not sure what you mean need more details. if there is a shake in the front end when car is running check to see if the motor is moving at all wile running. i have the same car and the shake turned out to be a broken motor mount on the front of the motor
The steering column shaft mounts to the rack and pinion steering gear with a type of u-joint and a pinch bolt to hold the steering column shaft tight on the rack and pinion stub shaft. This coupling may have gotten loosened, so you should check it. It is all hidden by the boot over the steering column on the floor. If you can get the boot to slide upward a bit, I think you can see the coupling. Or, you may need to look at it from underneath. The rack's stub shaft is on top of rack right where the steering column would come from the floor. Here's an idea: put the front up on jack stands or blocks. Then you could watch and listen while someone turns the steering wheel back and forth.
Depending on the engine, some have a mount on top of the radiator. Its called a dog bone because it is a metal strip with a rubber piece in each end, like a bone. One end bolts to the radiator support, the other bolts to a bracket on top of the engine. If it has one, you set the brake, put the trans in neutral, unbolt one end and pull the engine forward. Some mounts have a secondary hole to put the bolt in to hold the engine forward. You can look up "motor mounts - struts" at the online auto parts stores for photos.
sounds like motor mounts, start car and have someone look at motor while you intermittenly give the car gas and see if the motor raises up in the front or sides then check those rubber mounts and change them
If the coolant is leaking out of the radiator or out of the bottom of the radiator support then it is the radiator. The water pump is attached to the front of the motor. It's directly behind the fan. If the coolant is leaking down the front of the the engine then it is the water pump. Changing the radiator is a relatively easy repair with basic hand tools. I suggest purchasing a Chilton or Haynes manual for your vehicle. It will do wonders for your confidence having pictures and step by step guidance while you do the repair project.
sounds like a ride controll compressor if your car has air ride controll it will have a compressor
check the fan for bad blades and chips also check the fan housing for missing hold downs and screws also for clearences and if loose or out of mounts
Not possible. The 2005 Sonata came with two different engines - the 2.4 I4 and the 2.7 V6. On the 2.4 I4, the alternator is near the firewall and on the 2.7 V6 it's in the front near the radiator. Neither one is near any motor mounts. The four (4) motor mounts are located on either side of the transmission and at the engine front top and the transmission rear. Something else is in your way, perhaps the right side engine compartment side rail.
