They are located on the base of the engine block. in order to replace them you will need to lift the entire engine up off of them with an engine lift after un bolting them from the engine, then unbolt them from the frame and replace them starting by bolting them to the frame then lower the engine back on to them and bolting it back on to them

Location of rear motor mount


Need to know what vehicle? Most rear mounts are located on top of rear strut, if it is a front wheel drive. The rear strut would have to be removed for replacement. Most of newer mounts require specialty tools and can be dangerous if you do not know proper procedure for changing them.

I have a 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, the super charger belt needs to be changed along with the seized pulley located behind the motor mount. The mount is located above the crank shaft, attached to the...


I do have a question for you, if you remove the motor mount, can you change the pulley? If this is possible, you will need some jack stands, pieces of 2 by 4's and a hydraulic bottle jack. loosen the motor mount nuts and bolts( don't remove yet), with the bottle jack and a board, lift up the side of the engine(just enough to take pressure off the mount. now remove the mount. lift just a touch more, and set up the jack stands with boards on them(to support, and not damage the engine. also safety first). now lower the engine to the boards replace the pulley, and now go up with the engine, and replace the mount. I've done this on Toyota's,and think this may work for you also. hope this helps

Motor mount bracket attached to engine looks like a spacer broke and cant find a name or replacement


The motor mount really has no specific name other than motor mount. Its the location of the mount that determines the part that you need. Just call and parts store and tell them the location of the mount and they will usually be able to match something up for you.

Need motor mounts for 2004 Chrysler Pacifica


I'm thinking it has 1 motor mount and 2 dog bones. The mounts usually cost around $30 each and the dog bones $20-25 depending on the material their made of. You can replace these yourself, one at a time. The engine has to be jacked up just enough to take the weight off when you remove the mount. After you have it remove, install you new one/ones and tighten. After removing jack, torque the bolts to spec. Same thing is done with the dog bones. It a type of Motor mount that prevents the engine from leaning weight. These are usually located, one front/top engine area and one on bottom engine area.

Motor mount msy need to be replaced and I just paid someone to do it a year ago--I need diagrams to troubleshoot/investigate


How do you know if it "doesn't seem to be new" if you don't know where it is? Why was it replaced in the first place? There are usually three of them, one or two on one end and two or one on the other end of the engine. You must jack up the front end of the car so that you can find the mounts (use jack stands under both sides to keep from getting crushed if the jack slips). Mounts are usually two metal plates with a rubber biscuit between--one side bolted to the engine and the other side to the frame. If the biscuit has come free from either plate--replace that mount. Bad rubber is usually swollen or torn badly. If oily, clean with rag. There is usually an upper brace on top of the engine that can become damaged if one of the lower mounts is damaged or missing bolts. Good luck with this.

Engine mount replacement


There are two liquid filled and a trans mount. You need to found out which way the motor jumps if it jumps back to the fire wall I would change the two liquid fill. They are located looking at the engine on the pulley side left and right bolted to A-frame you can change one at a time. Unbolt one and jack motor with a floor jack and board just lift enough to drop it in and out. It's tough I know I did it before but it can be done. And do the same for the other. Trans mounted one never needs replaced. Just make sure the mounts are bad cause front wheel drive motors usally move but if its moving more than 2"-4" then replace them.

Motor Mount Replacement/Repair

Give Your Engine A New Life With A Motor Mount Replacement
A Motor Mount acts as a security mechanism for the engines, minimizing the adverse effects of frequent vibrations and oscillations that arise when driving the vehicle. No matter how powerful the engine, there is a need for some internal mechanism inside the vehicle to provide strong support to the engine and to protect it from any damage. The Motor Mount serves as essential and rigid structural support systems for the engine, enabling the vehicle to get through the irregularities of the track and other road conditions smoothly and conveniently. It secures the engine and prevents it from serious damage. Moreover, it minimizes vibration and noise on the part of engine.
Due to prolonged usage, Motor Mount will not be able to deliver its services properly. In order to avoid the risk of total breakdown of the engine, the working conditions of the motor mount needs to be checked regularly .Whenever the needs arises it should be replaced as it affects the overall performance and efficiency of the vehicle. Failure of the engine mount can seriously damage the engine .Auto-part replacements ensures the longevity of the engine and it enables you to fully utilize the benefits of smooth drive.
Points of consideration for replacing and repairing
  • Cracking of distributor caps needs to be avoided
  • Radiator hoses should not be torn.
  • Before opening the engine, firewall must be checked for clearance.
  • Engine should not be jacked directly by the oil-pan, as the pan may bend.

Replacement Procedure
  • First of all, remove the hood and all the parts required for access to engine.
  • Remove the engine mount through the bolts.
  • Secondly loose the mount to frame bolts.
  • Raise the engine slowly towards upward direction to remove the engine mount brackets and then, ultimately remove the motor mount and the engine mount fasteners; the shims locations needs to be noted down.
  • Heat shields or Drip shields must be transferred to the new mount after comparing it with old mount.
  • Progressively old Mount is replaced with the new one.

Re-intallation of Engine Mount
  • Engine Mount brackets, fasteners and shims must be installed in their original locations.
  • Mount-to frame bolts should be placed in their appropriate locations.
  • Reinstall engine, mount through bolts loosely and allow the vehicle to run two or three times so that engine mount can adjust at their accurate operating locations.
  • Finally, the engine is placed in its accurate place by pushing it inside and all the bolts are tightened.
  • Make sure that engine is properly aligned.
  • Reinstall all the removed parts.
  • Reinstall and align the hood at correct place.
