SOURCE: How do i change a motor mount in a 1993 ford taurus?

The engine mounts (2) and the transmission mount serve to hold the drive train compontents in the chassis and do so flexibly and with the strength exceeding the torque generated by the engine. If not for the mounts, when opening the throttle (in gear), the engine and transmission would lurch out of the engine compartment!

Check the mounts by raising the hood and, with the engine running, holding the brake firmly with one foot, select drive or reverse, briefly accellerate while holding the brake firmly--observe while doing this the engine will rise slightly (good) to a couple of inches (not good). Do not let the car move, nor let anyone stand in the car's path were it to move. Accellerate for not more than two seconds when checking the mounts.

To change them you need to raise the car and safely support on jackstands under the side rail of the car in the indicated position. I have been able to do this raising only the passenger side.

Then you will need to carefully lift the engine, too. I have used a hydralic "bottle Jack" placed under the block at the edge of the oil pan.

Using 18mm wrenches loosen the nuts at the top and bottom of the mounts. I change one mount at a time. Remove the nutsand the the worn mount (careful- it's fluid filled-- nasty stuff, you would not like spilling it on yourself).

You may have to lift the engine quite high and wiggle the mount around to clear getting it out and the new one in. Orient the mount correctly so that the tabs fit the slots, start the nuts on the studs carefully, you don't want these cross threaded, then tighten completely, having lowered the engine fully onto the new mount first.

Check the new mount as described above.

Be very careful in doing all of this. Use tire chalks, set the parking brake. Check that the car is secure on the stands prior to getting under it. Use common sense too.

SOURCE: how to get to the thermostat on a ford aerostar 93

1993 Ford Aerostar 4WD 4.0L MFI 6 Cyl Repair Guide

1. Drain the cooling system with the engine cold.

CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

2. Remove the retaining bolts for the thermostat housing. Lift the housing clear and remove the thermostat. It may be easier to clean the gasket mating surfaces with the heater and radiator hoses removed from the thermostat housing.

SOURCE: How do you change the motor mounts on a 1999 ford

I've seen people lift the motor slightly and stuff a chunk of a tire in there. Its actually better in some cases than OEM. You wont need to disconnect the motor from the trans. easiest way is to take the hood off and lift the motor just enough to get the old mounts out. There isnt anything real complex about a mount. Like I said... lots of people make their own. Probably more people pay the big bucks to have a pro do it and have genuin OEM part put in, and then pay with their credit card.

How do you change a timing belt on a 1989 Dodge Shadow???

There are a lot of other parts that have to be removed in order to get to that and the engine needs to be set to the correct #1 TDC before you remove the old belt. There is insufficient space to cover all of that in a response. If I where you I would get the Haynes Repair Manual from Auto Zone on your vehicle. It will give you the steps involved and tell you if it can be done with the motor mounted or not. It will also explain how to properly remove the head if it needs to come off at all. if that old belt is broken then the head needs to be removed and inspected by a machinist shop to make sure the valves weren't bent. The 1989 did not have no contact valves which means if it broke while the motor was running there was contact between the valves and Pistons causing other damage you will need to repair. This can be done by the DIY home mechanic but you have to do it correctly or your going to have more trouble than it is worth. I have a 1990 that is still going strong as these are tough little cars if maintained. Heck, my son put mine in a lake up to the doors once and it kept on going with no damage luckily. I love them.

Change timing belt on 1997 doge neon could i get a diagram or step by step instructions. thankyou

Changing a timing belt on a Dodge Neon is no walk in the park for a novice. Severe engine damage can result if it is not done correctly. There is also some equipment that must be used like an hydraulic floor jack and an engine support fixture to support the engine when the front motor mount is removed to gain access to the belt. Failure to use the proper support equipment can result in broken motor or transmission mounts and possibly other parts being damaged.
If you really want to try this as a DIY project and you need step-by-step instructions, I would recommend purchasing a HAYNES or CHILTON manual for your vehicle from your local parts supply store or subscribe to the repair information available on-line at AllData.

Need how-to on replacing the rear motor mount

"The" motor mount implies one of the three (actually the rear on is a transmission mount).
Loosen the bolts on the mounts that you are keeping.
Next, place a 2x6 about 1 ft long under the oil pan and place a jack under the oil pan and 2x6 board.
Apply pressure (just a little) to the jack.

Now, remove the bolts that hold the bad motor mount. Apply enough lift on the jack to get the engine weight off the motor mount (and no more).

Next, knock out the bad mount and insert the new mount. Insert the bolts (hand tighten).

Next, lower the jack until the block rests on the new mount. Tighten the other motor mount bolts and the new mount bolts (torque to about 35 Ft. lbs.)

You are done!

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
