Hello wrygrl...The OEM (orginal equipment) passenger side motor mount for the 1988 olds ninety-eight was a hydraulic type. After market "solid" type mounts are available for replacement...either type will work. Shop around and get some price quotes, i believe westar makes a solid type mount that sells for around 22 bucks.
Hope this answers your question. Have a safe and happy memorial day weekend.

    Hey WizzBoy...take a chill pill and stop being so rude to the public in here. Not everybody can be as BRILLIANT as YOU.
    Obviously Wizzy you are not familar with how a transverse engine mounts into the vehicle or how the transmission works as a support mount...replaced in pairs? LOL Since When? The Olds has 3 mounts...ummm now which "pair" should i change...the 2 on the left or the 1 on the right? LOL :D

How to replace motor mounts on 2003 hyundai sonata

You really need the car on a lift or tall jack stands to do this. You will need a full set of hand tools, a good hydraulic floor jack, a set of Jack stands (AKA Safety Stands) and a 1.5 Ton bottle jack. Raise the front of the car as high as possible and unbolt the old mounts from the engine and engine cradle, then Carefully using the bottle jack (put a piece of wood on the plunger of the jack to avoid damage to the oil pan) raise the engine off the mounts and remove them, and reverse install new mounts, time about 2-3 hours to do the repair.

My front of my car vibrates like crazy everytime I accelerate and turn right but when I let off the has it stops

Sounds like maybe a busted motor mount or transmission mount, or a worn out cv drive axle.Look under the front of the car at the drive axles there is 4 rubber boots 2 on each axle inner boot and outer boot.See if one or more of the boots is torn or split.

How to change motor mount

if you don't have an engine hoist you'll need a couple of hydraulic jacks. loosen the bolt that bolt the engine to the mounts. then raise the engine with the hydraulic jacks. once you have just enough clearance to get your hands and tools into the bad mount remove it. put in the new one. slowly lower the engine back into place with your hydraulic jacks and tighten then engine back down to the motor mount. be careful the engine doesn't shift while it's suspended on the jacks one it's dangerous and 2 it will make it harder to realign the engine when your lowering it back onto the mounts

How to replace a front motor mount on a 1993 Mercury Sable 3.0 V6

To change the right front motor mount on a mercury sable. 1. you will need a jack and 22mm and a 5/8 socket.
2. you want to place the jack under the catalyst converter or somewhere on the motor that will lift the motor separatly from the crossbar that the front mount is attached to.
3. apply a little lift to the jack raising the car(3 or 4 hydraulics jack lifts).
4. using the 22 mm socket wrench take the bottom nut off the mount which is located under the right side of the crossbar.
5. using the 5/8 socket remove the top bolt that attaches the mount to the motor.
6. raise the jack 2 or 3 more times( giving you more room to move the old mount out).
7 . remove the old mount paying close attention to the way it is positioned, being sure not to put the new mount in wrong.
8. apply the new mount.
9. apply the top bolt and tighten .
10. lower the jack until the mount is seated correctly onto crossbar.
11. apply bottom nut and tighten.
12. glad i could help!
