Question about 1995 GMC Sonoma
What would it cost a mechanic to install motor mounts on a 1995 gmc sonoma 4.3 litre 4*4 ,I dont have a cherry picker
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

SOURCE: how to change motor mount
You will need an engine hoist, jack stands, jack. ratchet set, and new engine mounts. Jack up the front end of the Sonoma with a floor jack and rest the front end on a pair of jack stands. Open the Sonoma's hood. Connect the engine hoist to the front-right and left side of the engine. Slide under the front end of the Sonoma and locate the right and left motor mounts. Remove the bolt that is securing the mounts in place using the ratchet set. Raise the engine using the engine hoist enough to take the weight off of the engine mounts. Pull the engine mounts off of the frame. Slide the new motor mounts into there fittings. Lower the engine onto the engine mounts. Make sure that the holes in the frame, mounts and engine all line up with each other. Replace the securing bolts to the mounts. Tighten the securing bolts using the ratchet set. Disconnect the engine hoist from the engine and close the hood. Use the jack to lift the front end and remove the jack stands. Lower the front end to the ground.

There is a relay under the dash on the passenger side that operates the fan. You can bump the dash on the under side passenger side. And the fan should come on. If so the relay needs replaced.
