No its does not cost that much if you do it yourself and if there is a auto store near you check on the part all you would need jack stands and a good floor jack to support the motor while you are lowering it to get the old mount out and then put the new one in also here is a place that sells only GM parts its Schram auto & truck parts The # is 1-800-292-1032 if needed.

What would it cost a mechanic to install motor mounts on a 1995 gmc sonoma 4.3 litre 4*4

Im sure your 95 is no different then my 01 sonoma 4x4 u shouldn't need a cherry picker to do the engine mounts a small block of wood and a floor jack to support the engine from underneath and take a little bit of the load off the mount should work you dont have to lift the engine out to do them its not easy this way but is possible and cost less money working for a gm parts department and a former tech you would be spending and average of 75 to 100 an hour labor wise depending on what shop u take it to and what shop labor rates at like near you I would estimate an easy 2 hours labor but it all goes by book time thats or determined at the shops

Oil leak in back of engine 0n1995 olds cutllass with3100 motor

Probably the main oil seal - if it is, the part costs about $5.00. The labor will be several hundred. Use a engine sealer product for under $10.00 in your 16 year old car. That is my advice.

1988 olds cutlas ciera service engine light comes

Try taking the car to Autozone or similar business for a free scan of your computer (your car is a pre-OBD2 system and your mechanic may have a scanner that reads only post-'96 autos). The scan will usually only point to problem areas, not specific components. That's where the mechanic comes in with specific tests. Good luck!

I cnt find or get to the back spark plugs of my 1988 olds cutlass supreme 2.8L v-6 front wheel drive where are they and how can i get to them to replace them

On those engines in order to get to the rear plugs (firewall side), you have to remove a bolt from each of the 2 upper motor mounts (they're called dog bones) at the front of the engine and at the same time you take a pry bar and rock the engine forward and put a block of wood between the engine and the firewall. Some dog bones have an extra hole in them so you can slide a bolt in them to hold the engine forward. It sounds like alot of hassle but it isn't that bad. Good luck!
