There should be 2 motor mounts at the front of the engine. Yes take them off this allows you to roll the motor forward and work on the back side.Leave the manifolds on the heads disconnect the crossover pipe between them and unhook the one exhaust pipe on the back side leading under the car. also if you go to Autozone.com and register no cost look up repair manual for your car it gives you a step by step for a head job torque specs and all

SOURCE: 1998 chevy lumina 3.1--how do you change the motor

A broken motor mount can be replaced by getting a large support member made of wood or metal and supporting the engine by its installation hanger on top the engine. You chain the motor to the support member and then gently jack up the motor just enough to take the tension off the bad mount. You take the slack out of the support member so it holds the weight of the motor. You can lower the jack slightly so the member is holding the weight. Then remove the bad side mount and replace with the new one. You will need air tools with long extensions and swivel sockets or socket adapters to remove the nuts. Otherwise you will be very frustrated and sore trying this with hand tools!

After that you jack the motor up slightly to remove the support member and then lower the engine back to its normal resting place.

The support member is safety insurance if your jack slips or slowly falls as many of them do with a lot of weight on them. Plus you wouldnt want the engine going too low and damaging the good mounts!

You can put some wood or use short jackstands too as a backup to the support member as well. Hey! Better safe than sorry right?!

Plus, always have someone there watch you in case you get to trouble with either the motor or the mount. It's easy to get pinched between stuff or have alignment troubles that only an outside observer can help you with.

Good luck and be very careful!

Removal of oil pan for chevy lumina 1995


You must raise then engine high enough to remove the oil pan. Loosen motor mount bolts & remove them, jack engine up enough to remove pan or use a chain block. Use wood blocks to support engine at motor mounts. Good luck!

How do you rotate the motor in a 2001 Chevy Lumina to change the back three spark plugs


Place the parking brakes on and disconnect the two front dog bone motor mounts. With the transmission placed in park and a friend, free up the parking brake and have your friend push the car forward till the engine rotates far enough for you to work on the rear spark plugs. Put the parking brakes back on and place wheel chalk to the front and rear wheels to ensure the car does not move and you loose an arm.
Good luck and thank you for using FIxya

How do I get to the altenater on a 1994 chevy lumina v6.


If you have the 3.4l v6 it is a challenge. You should get a repair manual if you are going to try this. On the 3.1l v6 it is not that hard off a job. 3.4l you have to remove the wiper motor the motor mount on the strut and the alternator mounts.
