Re: front and rear motor mounts bad 99 mitsubitshi...
Just jack up and remove the driverside motor, just put a piece of lumber between the jack and oilpan, then raise up alittle unbolt front and rear motor mounts should come out easy, then replace and drop engine back into place, its alot easier than one would think, good luck

No harm will come from slightly overfilling the engine with oil. It doesn't cause leaks as most people THINK. The engine does not build up pressure inside because of the PCV system that draws crankcase vapors into the intake to be burned. You have another problem keeping your car from cranking. Possibly a bad starter, solenoid switch or even bad wiring.
Need to know what vehicle? Most rear mounts are located on top of rear strut, if it is a front wheel drive. The rear strut would have to be removed for replacement. Most of newer mounts require specialty tools and can be dangerous if you do not know proper procedure for changing them.
i'm guessing you're asking because it's a v6 FWD and you don't know how to get to the spark plugs along the firewall. you will need to find the front motor mounts or the anti torque bolts whatever you wanna call it and make your motor swing. you can do that by locating your front motor mounts or side or even rear. i'm not sure with a eclipse but once you've found the anti torque bolts attached to it and removed them you can roll the car forward and it should leave about 6 inches of space behind the engine to get the those spark plugs. front should be easy
The motor mounts are common failure points on these cars.
In particular, the transmission hanger mount and rear rollstopper mount are the worst for failure rates.
The front rollstopper is 3rd most common, and the front engine mount is least likely to fail (rare).
The mounts range from 75-125 each and require about 2.5 hours to change all four. As I said before, the front engine mount is very unlikely to need replacement though, the other 3 are likely the only ones you will see damage on.once they are removed.
If your State doesn't require it, why install it?
If your State does require a front plate, and you just bought the car, take it back to the dealer. They are required by law to install the plate before selling it.
Any auto store can sell you mounting hardware for your front plate. If you look at your front bumper, you should see two little dimples in the center of the bumper, these will line up with your plateholder. Make sure it does and drill there, and mount with proper hardware.
just put the jack under the engine with a board in between the oil pan and jack, raise up a little unbolt the mount, jack up more, you might have to loosen other motor mounts but you should be able to squeeze out the mounts with ease or a little prying of a pry bar, its much simpler then most would think, just did it on 2 awd turbo eclipses last week, you can also buy a polly urithane kit and knock out the guts of the mounts and replace with the pollys for pretty cheap. im in iowa if you need help let me know.
Yes this mount supports a lot of the motor. It also supports the transmission so if you are on a down hill slope the motor will roll forward and cause a lot of pressure on the front mount. Hope this helps.
