Yes all vehicles have these type of engine mounts ,its part of the europeon homoglonation certificate ,now as for a black box well as far as i know only airplanes have this ,but yes some functions will throw a code up like the airbags and will need to be reset before a repaired vehicle can be passed for its annual technical inspection

1996 Honda Accord harmonic balancer is rubbing the car frame


first point to check is the engine mounts
if they are at the bottom of the insulator , that will be allowing the pulley to touch the frame
replace all engine mounts
next point is the harmonic balancer itself
make sure that it is properly set in position and if it has a rubber section between pullet and crank hub, check that it is in line
if it is not replace the harmonic balancer
At this point , the engine mounts would be a fair bet because of the age of the vehicle
that is unless the vehicle has been involved in an accident and the frame was not straightened or positioned correctly

Ok there is a clunking or popping sound in the front of my 2004 Honda Odyssey when turning an hitting bumps what could it be


this could be a few things :
1- a broken motor mount , with transverse mounted engines it's a real possibility that one or more engine/trans mounts have come loose , this should not be taken lightly as if left go it can damage the engine/trans housings requiring replacement $$$$
2- a constant velocity joint ,again in transverse mounted engines it's common for the flex joint from trans to wheels to have issues , this can become serious as eventually the wheels will disconnect from trans and wheel can lock up tight regardless of speed your traveling
3- last but not least - just something loose or flopping around , there are many shields and covers in this area that are only fastened with special clips and these can work loose , this also needs to be looked at because those covers are there for a reason and will allow dirt to enter into spaces and cause more $ problems

all in all an experienced tech should look at this they have the tools and knowledge to know if it's something serious or not

This starter motor removal procedure is time consuming. An alternate method of removing the starter would be to remove the engine fan(s) and radiator, then remove the starter motor from the top of the engine. If you chose to go this route, radiator and fan removal can be found in Engine and Engine Rebuilding of this guide.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
If equipped with A/C, perform the following:

  1. Use a floor or jack stand to securely support the engine and transaxle assembly so they will not rotate.

Remove the front engine mount bolt from the insulator and front crossmember mounting bracket.

Fig. Fig. 7: If equipped with A/C, unfasten the front engine mount-to-bracket bolt


  1. Carefully lower the front of the engine, rotating the engine forward allowing more space for easier access to the starter.
For easier removal, do not remove the wiring from the starter at this time.
  1. Remove the 2 starter motor-to-transmission housing mounting bolts.
  2. Remove the starter and solenoid assembly from the transmission housing. Position the starter accordingly for access to the wiring.
  3. Remove the positive battery cable nut and remove the positive battery and alternator output wire from the starter. The wiring is shown in the accompanying figure.

Remove starter


You will need to remove the front motor mount by placing a hydraulic jack under the engine (but not on the oil pan), lifting the engine slightly. Remove the front motor mount, and lower the jack (and engine) which will allow you access to the last bolt and allow for ease of removal/installation of the starter.

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.
