Question about 2003 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

2004 Honda Pilot, passenger side motor mount is leaking fluid. I can get to the bolts easy enough, but do I have to support the engine while I remove & replace this mount, or will the engine be suspended by the other mounts? If I have to support it, where do I place the jack to avoid damage to the underside of the engine? thanks

Yes i would highly recommend you support the engine to prevent the engine from lowering to much. you will also need to support it so you can install the new mount. use a jack with a block of wood-as wood is softer. it is perfectly safe to support the engine with the jack and wood under the oil pan.

Removing the passenger side valve cover on a 2004 cadilac srx with the 4.6 liter northstar engine.

Do you mean the rear? when a motor sits sideways there is a front and back, Passenger and driver doesn't really pertain any longer. But if you are meaning the rear, you should be able to remove the top mounts and get the engine to rock forward just enough to remove the bolts and cover. There is however not enough room to remove the rear head with the motor in the vehicle.

1999 Honda Accord passengers side motor mount\r\nSeems to be leaking fluid. Spoke with NAPA and they don't show a motor mount on this vehicle being filled with fluid. Any suggestions?

there could be a transmission line or power steering line that runs near or over the mount that may be leaking or the motor or tranny depending on witch side the mount is on may be leaking onto the mount also a more closer inspection would be in need.

Is there any way to replace the serpentine belt on a 97 oldsmobile achieva without removing the engine mount

If its the 3.1 liter with the upper engine mount on the passenger side of the motor than no. You will need to remove the mount.

The good news is is its not that hard to do. Place a jack under the oil pan with a block of would between the jack and the oil pan and the trans pan as far to the passenger side as you can and still be able to touch both pans with the block of wood.

Jack up the motor just enough so that it just start to push up on the motor mount. Remove the bolts that hold it to the bracket on the engine. Remove the retainer for the cruise, if equipped, unplug the cruise and set aside. Remove the nut from the mount on top and the two bolts from inner fender.

Jack up the motor just enough to remove the mount.

You'll then be able to replace the belt.

How do you remove a starter motor from a toyota verso corolla


Just did this the other day on my 1993 corolla (same engine, etc).

It helps to first get the replacement starter motor so that you have something to look at and see how it looks like, and where the mounting bolts fit.

The starter motor itself is mounted on the back side of the engine with just two bolts, and it is in principle an easy replacement. The downside is that the bolts are not so easy to access, so patience and some good tools are important.

You'll have to raise the front end of the car enough to work under it. Open the hood and
disconnect the battery terminals from the battery. Go underneath the car and disconnect the cables from the old starter motor. One cable goes to a plug-in terminal (press down the retainer clip with a small screwdriver to remove, the other is fastened with a 12mm hex nut.

Now you can remove the two bolts holding the starter motor in place (14mm hex). The bottom-most bolt is accessible from below the engine and faces the passenger side of the car. If the bolt seems hard to get to, cheer up...this is the easy one :-)

The second bolt faces the DRIVER side of the car, and is accessible from under the hood. It's easy to find, but it is surrounded by a lot of cables and stuff that get in the way.
I removed the air filter and used a socket wrench with a hinged handle to get the bolt started, finishing with a regular wrench.As the second bolt loosens, you should have someone else hold the starter motor in place, and catch it as it comes off.

Getting the old starter motor out of the engine compartment is a bit of an obstacle course...I did it by moving away part of the plastic underbody cover on the passenger side. Replacement part goes back in the same way, Again, have someone hold the new starter motor in place while you reinstall the first bolt. Connect the cables to the starter motor terminal, replace anything (like the air filter) that you removed for the installation, reconnect the battery, and turn the key.

I am no mechanic, and it took me about 3 hours once I had everything I needed. Someone more competent could certainly do it faster.

Best regards.

Passenger side motor mount was replaced 2 monthe ago and is rubbing against holding bracket I need a diagram or picture of installation maybe forgot a washer or installed wrong 2000 honda accord v6

Jack the engine up o relieve pressure on the mount, take the mount back off. there should be no washers under the mount. look at the bolts that the mount slides down on, be sure to get those center as possible in the holes. you may have to raise or lower the engine a bit more to center those up. Put the mount back on and tighten the bolts while the engine is raised. lower the car and tighten to spec.

96 Chevy S-10 starter problems

Just did this, take the long bolt out of the passenger side engine mount, loosen the two transmission mount bolts and jack the right side of oil pan slowly, when you do this there will be enough clearance between the bell housing and frame, be sure to use a jack stand to be safe.
Put the starter motor in the space with the selonoid up and wiggle forward into position then insert bolts and hook up connections. Let the motor down, put the motor mount bolt back in, tighten transmission mount.
