    Had mount replaced. Good thing also as the old mount was basically shredded rubber surrounding the bolt sleeve. Had mechanic friend do the R & R.

    Interestingly, the local Honda dealer said that they kept the front mount in stock as that was the one usually needing replacement. The rear is also ****** to get to compared to the front and side mounts. Had to unbolt exhaust to have enough clearance.

Hate to tell ya, but Haynes doesn't show how to. It simply says remove rear mount bolts and remove mount.

I just changed the rear mount on a 99 odyssey and I was able to get it out through the passenger side wheel well but it was a nightmare, and the engine bracket had to be unbolted as well or the mount dont come out. Honda could fix this problem by using two dogbone type mounts in the rear or make that mount unbolt into two pieces.

Sounds like you've made the proper diagnosis. if you're intent on changing this, i suggest you get a Haynes guide to show how it should be done. you'll find them at the auto parts store.

2011 acadia when taking foot off the gas pedal there is a knocking noise

The front motor mount and the upper engine strut mount both commonly fail. Start engine and have someone rev engine and let off while you look to see if either mount is moving excessively. The noise you are describing it is likely either or both the mounts.

Why does my pontiac grand am gt 2002 car jump hard when I put it in drive and then it jumps a little going into first gear. I was thinking it was the mtor mount.

Motor & Transaxle Mounts --- may be the issue
If so--- replace them--- all
Put your foot on the brake & put into fwd & rev, while
someone looks under the hood at the motor movement
Have them off to the side & torque the motor some against
the brake
Also check cv axle joints--- once the mounts are taken care of

How would I know if the motor mounds are bad on a 98 cadillac deville

Simple test should show broken mounts. Place the tranny in drive and with the brakes full on rev the engine and watch for excessive engine movement sideways. Check rear engine mount (rear axle drive) try to lift the rear of the tranny and see the movement in the rear engine mount. For side mounted engines the mount bolts should be in the center of the rubbers . If they are to the bottom of the rubbers , the mounts need replacing.

When stopped at light/stop sign, rattling comes

Inspect the motor mounts for cracks or breaks in the mount. Ask a friend to stand at the right front fender with the hood open while you start the car. Make sure the emergency brake is on and you block one of the rear tires in front of it and in back of it with a brick or similar solid material. Put the car in drive (1st gear for manual transmission) and with your foot on the brake pedal rev the motor for a few seconds at about 1500-1800 rpm as your friend watches for excessive left and right movement from the engine. Then do the same in reverse and have him stand on the left side and do the same. If one mount is bad it is recommended that all the engine mounts be replaced. There are usually 2 or 3 for the engine and one for the transmission.

I have a 1987 toyota camry, at times the steering

check the motor mounts/transmission mounts for excessive wear. Open the hood and with the emergency brake on and the rear wheels blocked with bricks (front and back of the rear tires) have a friend stand to the side and a few feet back of the engine. The other person gets in the car, starts it and with your left foot applied constantly to the brake pedal, use the right foot to rev the motor up and down in drive, then in reverse. You are looking for the engine to show movement front to back or side to side excessively. The engine will stay virtually still during this test if the mounts are good but it sounds like on ore more may be bad.

Engine mounts

Pretty easy fix.
1)Open the hood
2)Start van up
3)Put shifter into Drive with one foot on brake hard and one on Gas real light
4)Rev the motor, see if motor lifts and which side lifts
5)Put trans in Reverse,Step on Brake hard and rev the motor to see if engine lifts again
6)Mark on paper which side or both that lifts more than 3/4 " or so and it will tell you which motor mount or that both mounts are bad.Good thing to know so you dont get sandbagged by a disreputable Company or P
7) Jump on Craigslist on advertise that you are in need of a mechanic to change you motor mounts and you are willing to come up with a couple cases of beer for payment after the work is done..Shouldnt take more than 2 hours tops to do
