Where is the motor months for a 93can Dakota n how do fix it

They'll be at the bottom of your engine, one on each side and possible one at one end. One piece will bolt to the side of the engine block, and one piece will bolt to the truck's frame. Between the two pieces will be a rubber vibration damper.

If you need to replace one or more motor mounts, you'll need to jack up the front of the truck enough to comfortably get under it, and support the truck with something that CANNOT fail. If the truck falls off the jack, it WILL KILL YOU DEAD. I like to put two or more spare tires/wheels under the vehicle with me - they take the impact if a jack fails, allowing me to survive.

You'll also need to jack up the engine slightly. Not much, just slightly... more to take the weight off the motor mounts than for anything else.

Work ONE motor mount at a time. DO NOT try to do more than one at a time - it's hellish to let an engine float around in there with no motor mounts while you try to get all those bolts to line up again.

After jacking up the engine slightly, unbolt one motor mount from the engine block. You may need any of several different types of wrenches to do this. Also unbolt the same motor mount from the truck frame. Now you can remove the motor mount altogether, letting the engine hang there between the remaining motor mount(s) and the jack. If you hadn't jacked up the engine, now it would have fallen when you took out the motor mount, and it'd have been EXTREMELY difficult to get it back into position so you could reinstall the new mount.

Installation is the reverse of removal. Bolt it (LOOSELY) to the frame, then to the block. You may need to do some prying to get the last bolts to line up with their holes. After all the bolts are installed loosely, THEN you can tighten them all down. If you tighten some before you install the others, the others may be impossible to line up with their holes.

Finish one, move on to the next.

Video on replacing motor mounts on a 1999 ford escort

I have no video of the job just written instructuions.

  • Park the vehicle on level ground and shut off the engine. Raise the front end of the Escort off the ground using the floor jack. Lower the vehicle onto jack stands placed under the frame to support the car.
  • 2Place the jack under the oil pan and raise the lift plate to the bottom of the oil pan. Remove the engine mount bolt using the 1/2-inch socket wrench. The engine mount bolt is in the center of the mount fitting in clear view.
  • Slowly raise the engine using the jack until the weight of the engine is removed from the engine mount. Pull the engine mount from the fitting and place the new mount in the fitting.
  • 4Lower the engine slowly and insert the bolt into the mounting hole. Tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds using the torque wrench.
  • 5Remove the bolt from the other engine mount the same way as the first one. Pull the mount from the fitting and insert the new one. Replace the bolt to the center of the mount fitting. Lower the engine to the frame and tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds.
  • 6Remove the jack from under the Escort. Raise the car off the jack stands, remove the stands and lower the car to the ground

    When I start or drive my 1999 chevy suburban k1500 it make a loud knocking noise in the egine- so loud that can not drive it no where- I was told by a friend that my egine are loose and to be tighten. how...

    if the engine is loose, i would check the motor mounts to see if 1 of them is not broken, if it is , it will have to be replaced, if it is loose, then it can be tightened up. with the appropiate size wrenches. if the knocking sound is coming from the inside of the engine, i would have it checked out soon to see what is causing the knocking. [ interior knocking in a engine is serious. ]
