Re: 1993 Ford Probe needs motor mounts
Is the model with the V6 mazda motor, if so it can be a bit difficult if you have little mechanical experience, but it is doable without removing the motor or transmission. we would allow 3 hours to complete the whole job.

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,
Jack the car up find the oil releas bolt which will be on the bottom of the oil pan. put an oil catcher undernieth that bolt then take it off. wait about 3 minutes for all oil to leak out reinstall bolt and put new oil in the motor.
CHECK FUSE IF OKAY.CHECK TO SEE IF POWER GOING TO SUNROOF MOTOR SWITCH IF YES SUNROOF MOTOR COULD BE FAULTY OR IT NEED ADJUSTMENT.SWITCH COULD BE BAD.IF SWITCH IS GETTING NO POWER FUSE IS GOOD THERE IS A BROKEN WIRE FROM FUSE TO SWITCH.
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.
Don't know if this will be of any help, but these cars have the same auto trans as the Mada 626s of the same age and they are a problematic transmission. They tend to blow up. Gerking could just mean it needs a service. ie: low fluid levels or 'worn out' fluid. It could also be an early sign of bigger problems. We ended up selling our mazda because of the transmission. around $1800 to replace with reco but many people reporting reco trans failing within 2 yrs anyway.
motor mounts don't have anything to do with this problem. sensors and vacume lines do. You can start checking all your wires, and vacume lines first check to see nothing got crimped chipped, cracked or damaged in any way. If none of these its a sensor.
