Iam no mech but is it hard 2 change the motor n transmission mounts in a 96 ford thunderbird 3.8 engine if it is whats the going price 2 do so i dont get taken

It is fairly easy to do if you have a lift, but it is possible to do on the ground with a jack and jack stands. You will need to be able to unbolt both sides of the mount and support the engine with the jack while you replace the mounts. If you download the autozone app to a smart pone or tablet it will give you a repair estimate calculator,

How do I change engine mount rubber

Depends on your car. Some mounts bolt to the frame, some to the engine. Either way. raise the car, set on jack stands. use the jack to raise the engine some. Remove the center bolt of the mount. remove the bolts from the engine or frame. Raise the engine more. enough to get the mount out. replace the mount.

to change engine mounts place a trolley jack under the sump and take the load of the engine off the mount. Don't lift the car just jack until you see the engine mount come loose.

I've changed my engine mounts 3 times on my 2004 A4 cabreolet and they fail within miles(start to vibrate & then within a week, severe knocking) the 2nd time, also changed the ****** mount, 3r

Engine mounts do not go bad in five miles. Sounds like you're treating a symptom and not the cause of a more serious issue. Are you sure all cylinders are firing correctly? That the severe knocking is not coming from your engine internals? Have you checked the steel around the engine mounting points for cracks or other damage? And just in case, if the mounts you are using are poly, are you lubing them before installation?

How to change motor mount

if you don't have an engine hoist you'll need a couple of hydraulic jacks. loosen the bolt that bolt the engine to the mounts. then raise the engine with the hydraulic jacks. once you have just enough clearance to get your hands and tools into the bad mount remove it. put in the new one. slowly lower the engine back into place with your hydraulic jacks and tighten then engine back down to the motor mount. be careful the engine doesn't shift while it's suspended on the jacks one it's dangerous and 2 it will make it harder to realign the engine when your lowering it back onto the mounts

My motor mounts and trans mounts rubbers are soft, are they difficult or expensive to replace?

No, if you have an engine hoist they are very easy to change (1 nut and two bolts per engine mount, two bolts for the transmission mount). The trans mount rubber can be changed with just a floor jack.

How to change serpintine belt for 97 buick le sabre

These were a real pain in the neck to change, you may want to take it to a shop if you don't have a lot of experience. The hassle of doing it yourself may outweigh the cost.
Here's the procedure, but it is easier said than done:

  1. Remove the following components.
    1. The engine mounting bracket lower nut.
    2. The engine mounting bracket lower stud.
    3. The engine mounting bracket lower spacer.
  1. Remove the belt.

  1. Install the belt. Refer to Engine Mount in order to install the following components:
    • The engine mounting bracket lower nut.
    • The engine mounting bracket lower stud.
    • The engine mounting bracket lower spacer.daves944.gif

How do i change a motor mount in a 1993 ford taurus?

The engine mounts (2) and the transmission mount serve to hold the drive train compontents in the chassis and do so flexibly and with the strength exceeding the torque generated by the engine. If not for the mounts, when opening the throttle (in gear), the engine and transmission would lurch out of the engine compartment!

Check the mounts by raising the hood and, with the engine running, holding the brake firmly with one foot, select drive or reverse, briefly accellerate while holding the brake firmly--observe while doing this the engine will rise slightly (good) to a couple of inches (not good). Do not let the car move, nor let anyone stand in the car's path were it to move. Accellerate for not more than two seconds when checking the mounts.

To change them you need to raise the car and safely support on jackstands under the side rail of the car in the indicated position. I have been able to do this raising only the passenger side.

Then you will need to carefully lift the engine, too. I have used a hydralic "bottle Jack" placed under the block at the edge of the oil pan.

Using 18mm wrenches loosen the nuts at the top and bottom of the mounts. I change one mount at a time. Remove the nutsand the the worn mount (careful- it's fluid filled-- nasty stuff, you would not like spilling it on yourself).

You may have to lift the engine quite high and wiggle the mount around to clear getting it out and the new one in. Orient the mount correctly so that the tabs fit the slots, start the nuts on the studs carefully, you don't want these cross threaded, then tighten completely, having lowered the engine fully onto the new mount first.

Check the new mount as described above.

Be very careful in doing all of this. Use tire chalks, set the parking brake. Check that the car is secure on the stands prior to getting under it. Use common sense too.
