Iam no mech but is it hard 2 change the motor n transmission mounts in a 96 ford thunderbird 3.8 engine if it is whats the going price 2 do so i dont get taken

It is fairly easy to do if you have a lift, but it is possible to do on the ground with a jack and jack stands. You will need to be able to unbolt both sides of the mount and support the engine with the jack while you replace the mounts. If you download the autozone app to a smart pone or tablet it will give you a repair estimate calculator,

1998 Honda Civic LX engine motor mount replacement

You will need a suitable jack to support the engine for mount replacement. Some mount removel/replacement will require additional parts to be removed for access to the mounts. Experience is the biggest tool to have in your tool box for this type of repair as info on mount replacement is usually very scant

Broken motor mounts?

Would you not ask that question at an auto parts store
or go to an inline parts site?

Why not also install yourself?

I don't think a repair shop will appreciate you
walikg in with new parts as they loose the 20% or
more your trying to save.

On a Taurus you replace the motor & transaxle mounts

All of them,I think that is 3 in total.

in need of replacement

I think you have 3

My 2000 chrsler cirrus had broken the front and rear motor mount now you have to slam it in park for the indicator to grab and if you smoothly put it in park the indicator says reverse and has alot of free...

You need to fix the motor mounts before anymore damage accrues to the vehicle.IF you continue to slam the car into park, you are taking a big chance of ruining your transmission then you are talking very costly repairs. Replacing the motor mounts is an easier job and the price is not nearly as expensive as replacing transmission and other parts that could get broken during this.

I have a 99 dodge grand caravan the air conditioning unit broke off the engine mount how do I get the mount off or is it all one piece of the engine.

First you are going to need an illustrated parts breakdown, this will help you understand what is broken, what you need, and how to go about replacing it. A dealer service desk will usually print you out the page you need at little or no cost, also you can buy one for the whole car on eBay. I would just get the one page myself. They are not going to have parts for anything over 10 years old and you do not want to pay new price anyway.

Armed with this illustration you need to find and visit some nearby junkyards, or recyclers as they are now called. They can quickly tell you how many Chrysler products have the exact same part in them, and whether or not they have any laying around in their yard. If not they can get online and find you another yard which has it.

Armed with your good used part, you take your car apart, replace that component and put it back together. Since vibration most likely caused the failure before, perhaps some new motor mounts would be in order on reassembly. Get the new mounts at a parts store, not a dealer. If the job looks beyond the scope of your tools and time, any shop will charge you a simple hourly rate to swap parts in and out. Again stay away from a dealer on this as they will charge you more than the thing is worth.

1984 cadillac eldorado flywheel repair

Yes obviously they will need to lift the motor because the flywheel is smack-dab in between the torque converte and motor, could actually do it yourself with the right tools ( Engine hoist, air compressor , air tools, and sockets, and or course torque wrenches to properly mount the flywheel back to manufacturer specs) but I do believe 3 Grand is way higher then your average shop. Look for shops with Mexicans they have O.K. service for a good price. Reasonable price is in between $700 and $1200 GOOD LUCK!!
