    If it's a bolt on part, get one from a junkyard. If it's the chassis itself then you need to have some welding done.

You may be best off to replace the motor mounts if you replace one the other may still need it. When you take it in to have the passenger side replaced they will be able to do both and it is the best idea so you don't have to pay for the labor a second time. The bushing in the motor mount has gone out allowing the motor mount to rust.

Then it must be replaced before vehicle starts to torque in an awkward direction and cause something else to rupture or break

Which piece? the piece attached to the chassis, or the piece bolted to the engine? If the piece that's rusted is bolted to either the chassis or the engine, replace that piece (junk-yard part or get from dealership or if possible, carquest, autozone, pepboys, etc.) You'll need to support the engine to take the weight off the mount & mount brackets (usually a 2x6 piece of wood between oil pan and floor jack). Raise engine just enough to remove the stress/weight of the engine on the mount you want to repair. Remove mounting bolts & remove the mount. OR detach the mount from their brackets, then remove the bracket you want to replace (depends which engine's installed in your Windstar).

Motor mount passenger side rusted out


Sounds like you need to get that replaced. If the metal that the mount is attached to is also rusted you need to get to a fabricator or body shop to have that replaced too.

Where is the ecm on a 1994 gmc sonoma


If it's a 2.2, its on the passengers side, mounted to the engine block just above the motor mount. It sits under the coil packs. If you meant PCM, its inside the truck passenger side, behind the glove box.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1991 toyota land cruiser?


It should be under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, passenger side of transmission, mounted on frame in fuel line.
If you have not changed in a few years I would first spray with oil of some type for a week or two every day as it is probably very rusted

Motor mounts


There are a total of four mounts in the engine compartment. There is a motor mount on the passengers side of the motor underneath. There is a transmission mount on the drivers side underneath. There are two Torque-strut mounts (each sold as two pieces) between the top of the motor and the radiator shroud at the front of the engine.

Rusted subframe


You may need to get rid of it. If the frame is rusted, it's only going to get worse. If the motor mount is not sitting just right, it will only get worse too. I would either sell it as is or have a welder to look at it to see if it's repairable.

95 dodge dakota heater blower not working


It has been a long time since I've replaced one of those. From what I remember you don't have to go through pulling the heater box out. You do need to remove the glove box assembly. Look up under the passenger side of the dash. If you see the bulge of the motor/cover hanging straight down then remove the cover and the motor will be there. If you don't see that then te motor is mounted horizonally. If that is the case then the fresh air door assembly will need to be removed and it is behind that.
Here is a quick check to see if the motor is bad. Thump the bottom of the heater box by the passenger's feet. if the motor comes alive or makes noise then it is bad. Also check the fuse and make sure that it doesn't work on any speed. (the resistor would prevent operation on only one speed or more but generally not all speeds)
