If this is a lower motor mount, replace it immediately. From your discription it sounds like it is. without it the motor will pivot and lift under load and possibly dammage more parts, this is also a safety issue for yourself...

WHAT IS THE KM. LIMIT FOR SUB FRAME RECALL


I was the one posting all over the internet about the letter Chrysler sent me but it doesn't do any good. If the car was from the rust prone states and was built in a few months during a certain year they will replace it. I got mine replaced under the care warranty I bought when I got the car but after a month they sent me a letter that they were covered for 150,000 miles and returned my co pay. Then my other Pacifica cradle went out and I called and told them I would sue them if they didn't replace it and I would have. It cost me 250 dollars on the second Pacifica. There is no recall at the time because no one has died yet from the engine and transmission dropping to the ground and losing the steering and brakes ( the brake lines go across the cradle) The dealership that replaced the cradle forgot the large washers that hold the rubber bushings that hold up the cradle and as I was driving I lost all steering as the rubber bushing ripped out of the engine cradle in the back the cradle was an inch off the ground. The dealer said it was their best man and he would never forget the washers. It was towed back to the dealer and all new parts were put on for free but I bet Chrysler didn't know anything about it. If I had been on the expressway like I was earlier in the day I could have been killed

Have a newage stamford alternator c20a kva 15.625 bolted to a deutz model f2l912 engine and have tried to pull the 2 components apart but can only get the 2 parts about 1 inch apart anybody got the an


from what you are describing the generator is a 15 kva unit bolted to the back of a deutz engine
check the end of the alternator armature for a bolt head. it is possible that there is a long bolt going through the centre of the armature shaft and holding the armature to the crankshaft on a taper
some older units used 4 rubber blocks in the drive from the crank shaft and there is a plate to retain them in place ( They were a safety device to protect the unit from damage if the mains power come back on while the generator was running. The out of phasing would stop the armature and rip the rubber blocks up)

For '92 Dodge Spirit wiper assembly - where the arms come together in the center under grill - is that a rubber gasket, or a ball joint, or what ? that holds the 2 arms together? There is no keeper...


It is a plastic bushing that holds linkage together you can get replacement bushings from auto parts store like sitelogo_orly.gif

They can look it up in there books and get the right bushing to put it back together.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?


the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if this helps.

My serpentine belt is constantly being ripped apart. And when I switch gears my motor rocks and my car jerks. In addition the car is beginning to rock when its at rest.


ok. Your serpentine belt being ripped apart means the pulley's are not in align. You have to look and see where the faulty pulley is and replace it. this should hold your belt in alignment. The jerking could be because of a faulty motor mount. Have it put up on a hoist and tell shop what you are experiencing. I'd be willing to be they find its a bad motor mount that has worn our rubber on it....good luck!

Periodic clunck in front end


A 2003 SUV will clock in over 80,000 miles.

It's time to inspect the shocks and struts.

The periodic clunck you hear in front end can cause by


mud guard boot to metal strut body contact

worn strut center post to body of strut contact

worn rubble linkage

or combination to all of the above.


I would take the SUV to a good car wash that has under carriage cleaning.

Let the SUV dry and inspect it someone who can compress the front end.

If the front of the SUV re-bound two times then the struts will need to replace.

My mechanic told me that the bushings that hold up the subframe are showing signs of cracking. He said that since the steering column is attached I would lose control if the bushings broke. Is it possible...


It is highly unlikely that the bushings will fail. They do tend to crack alittle, but the bolts will still hold the subframe on. Now if they are rusted out, this is a possibility. You do have 4 bushings holding the subframe on also. 2 at the front, and 2 at the back.
