Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse and I was told I need a ''Roll Stop'' replaced at the dealership. What is a ''Roll Stop'' and how does it work?
I try to do a google search and I'm not finding much information, does this part have another name?
The only "motor mount" that goes bad
is really called the roll stop. It is located on the support bar, under
the car in the middle of the engine/transmission. The roll stop is on
the front, top side of the support.
You can remove it without the need to jack anything up, it does not hold any weight, it keeps the motor and transmission from flexing too much when you accelerate or engine brake. With a bad roll stop there will be more pressure on the exhaust system and a broken flex pipe on the front of the exhaust system will be the result. The flex pipes can cost up to $600 on some vehicles so replacing the roll stop is a good idea if you have too much motor twist or a knock under the vehicle from the exhaust hitting the floor when accelerating.
