Re: Engine Mount replacement
Depends on which mount. I've never had to pull the entire engine out to replace mounts on those. I get what ever that is in the way out of the way and use a floor jack to suspend the engine while I'm changing which ever mount.

Cam, the only way to remove the engine mount is the provide clearance between the bracket by lifting the engine upward with a floor-jack so the mount clears and is removable. For further assistance contact me through my auto-repair website for free: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/
I have no video of the job just written instructuions.
Park the vehicle on level ground and shut off the engine. Raise the front end of the Escort off the ground using the floor jack. Lower the vehicle onto jack stands placed under the frame to support the car.
2Place the jack under the oil pan and raise the lift plate to the bottom of the oil pan. Remove the engine mount bolt using the 1/2-inch socket wrench. The engine mount bolt is in the center of the mount fitting in clear view.
Slowly raise the engine using the jack until the weight of the engine is removed from the engine mount. Pull the engine mount from the fitting and place the new mount in the fitting.
4Lower the engine slowly and insert the bolt into the mounting hole. Tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds using the torque wrench.
5Remove the bolt from the other engine mount the same way as the first one. Pull the mount from the fitting and insert the new one. Replace the bolt to the center of the mount fitting. Lower the engine to the frame and tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds.
6Remove the jack from under the Escort. Raise the car off the jack stands, remove the stands and lower the car to the ground
Jack the engine up,use a jack,and a thick piece of wood,and put it under the crank pulley,remove he pin-bolt from the mount,and jack the engine up,make sure nothing is going to hit at the top,fan,and the rear near firewall,then remove the mount,and the bracket for the mount to access the freeze plug.
