Question about 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood

1 Answer

Cadillac Engine Mount.

Does a 1987 cadillac fleetwood de'elegance only have 1 motor mount? Is the other end held down by the transmission mount? Dealer says it has only 1 engine motor mount True? If so, what holds it down solidly? My mechanic says it has 2. Transmissiom jumps when shifting to 2nd gear. Would a bad motor mount cause this?

Sincerely and thanks, James Parsons

    It is a front wheel drive Cadillac 1987 Fleetwood De'elagance.Both transmission mounts were replaced. The dealer showed me a diagram showing only 1 engine mount. Also, Advance Auto store.

    On line auto shop shows 1 engine mount but also says right, left. Think you are correct so am ordering 2. Thanks for the speedy and satisfying answer. Will pass your site along to friends.

It has two motor mounts and the answer to your question will it make it jump..Its possible if its completely broken. I would suggest that you check transmission mount too. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

What is the easiest way to get to the freeze plug in my 88 cadillac fleetwood de elegance? Can u show diagram please?

Thar would depend upon which of the dozen or so freeze plugs you need to access. Some are fairly easy and can be worked on with the engine in the vehicle. Some are accessible if you remove some other bolt-on parts. Some are only accessible if you remove the engine from vehicle, and a few are only accessible if you separate the transmission from the engine.

I have a Mercedes benz, C200, 1996, Elegance. It vibtrates on reverse gear. All other gears are okay

If its a standard transmission its likely a bearing called the pilot bearing . Its a needle bearing that fits into the flywheel and the transmission shaft fits into it .If its worn the transmission will jump in reverse move up and down on the rubber mount . Or if its an automatic then its likely the rubber mount it self or a motor mount witch is also a rubber mount there is 2 on the motor and 1 on the trany
