    I looked at the coils on both side they are OK. actually engine is tilted so much that the pulley is touching the wheel-well Passengerside. how many motor mounts are there? the one in the front looks OK but i really cant see the entire mount

    There is only one on that side .. you may have to jack the motor up to see how nad it is.

I recently had 2 motor mounts on my 2005 dodge neon replaced. After I got my car back, I noticed it was making a weird noise, can't quite describe it, just knew that I hadn't heard it before. Then...

I also had my engine mounts replaced on my 2005 Dodge Neon. I have the same sound going on right now. When I spoke to a Auto Parts guy, he looked at it and said it was my tension-er pulley, and that when it runs out of grease it is a screeching noise and will be metal on metal. If you are looking at the front side of your car at the hood. It is the belt and pulley's that are on the left of the engine. (other side of battery). The tension-er pulley is the almost triangle looking piece located behind the back side of the belt.

They belt not being tight enough could also be why when I start my car, it seems to be rough starting.

I plan on getting this fixed ASAP. Perhaps your's went out and is now why the difficult steering.

I know this is not a solution, but it might help.

Stuck hood on 2002 jag S type

Try and bump the top of the engine or just have some one hold the release latch and lift up on the engine until it pops open.

Engine Roll Damper???

i've heard it called a few different things, but not sure i've heard roll damper. i think they may be talking about a torque strut (what i've heard it called) it's like a dogbone looking engine mount, usually mounted near the top of the engine. its purpose is to keep engine from bucking back and forth while the engine is torquing. its basically a motor mount, but without any real pressure on it at rest. easy to replace, that is, if that 's what they are referring to

98 dodge neon

if 2.4l or 2.0 is about the same you will have to pull your balancer pulley then take off the guard around it then loosen the timein tincher then take your timein belt off then you should see your water pump everything is going to be on the side of the motor and probably will have to put a jack up under the motor and take the motor mount off the side of the motor.
