You'll need to be more specific with the info on your car if you want to know the part # of the motor mount you need. Which engine is in your car, and is it auto or manual transmission?
Depending on engine size and transmission, your car has either 3 or 4 motor mounts. Once you figure out which size engine and type of transmission you have, call your local auto parts store like Advance, Oreilly's or Autozone. Tell the representative you need to know the part # of the motor mount you need to replace, and he'll ask you for your vehicle's info. Once you tell him this, he can give you the part #.
Good luck.

Labor charge for replacing 4 engine mounts on a 2008 3.8 town and country

For my zip code, around $1100 if done individually. Probably less if all four mounts are changed at the same time. Use the link provided and enter your make, model, year, zip code, and repair description (engine mount or trans mount). This site will also provide a list of garages in your area to consider for the repair.

How do i know which motor mount needs replacement

With car in drive/reverse and foot hard on brake if the engine moves when gas pedal is depressed and quickly released in both D&R, then that mount/mounts is defective...

Engine mount should be replaced if:

1) The hard rubber surface is covered with heat check cracks.

2) The rubber is separated from the metal plate of the engine mount.

3) The rubber is split through the center of the engine mount

The transmission case will crack or break if either engine mounts or transmission rear mount is broken...Here is a GM Service bulletin addressing the issue:


The transmission mount (see drawing) test:

>Raise and support the vehicle

>Raise the transmission/transaxle in order to remove the weight from the transmission/transaxle mount and create slight tension in the rubber.

Replace trans. mount if anyone of the three conditions listed above exist

Video on replacing motor mounts on a 1999 ford escort

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.

    I need to replace de engine mount

    Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery. If your radio has some anti-theft code, write it down before disconnecting the negative battery terminal.

    Begin by loosening the bolt of the old engine-mount. Then place a jack under the engine oil-pan. You might place a folded old newspaper or similar soft item on top of the jack-head to cushion the oil-pan.

    Do not crawl under the car while it is raised up with the jack. Support car on jack-stands.

    Once the weight of the engine is firmly on top of the jack-head, take out the old engine mount.
    Apply a dab of anti-seize compound to the new bolt, and tighten to 50-inch pounds.

    Engine mount light on hall the time

    Sorry, but there is no such thing as an "engine mount light". There is a check engine light that people often ask about that stays on when there is an error code. If you need help with that, write back and ask how to retrieve the error codes by using the engine test connector.

    Location of motor mounts on 94 saturn sl1 where are they and how do you replace them? (all of them) or at least the major ones

    There are four total mounts.

    1. Upper engine mount located on the passenger side of the engine. Get this at the dealer, aftermarket, especially Anchor brand are garbage.

    2. Lower engine mount, often refered to as a "dog bone" mount because of its shape. This one is located on the lower passenger side. You'll have to remove some splash shields to get to it. Aftermarket is OK.

    3. Upper transmission mount, also refered to as a "dog bone" mount. Located under the battery.Aftermarket is OK.

    4. Lower transmission mount. Located under the transmission. As with the top engine mount, dealer is better quality.

    The two dogbone mounts usualy last a very long time, its the others that fail over time. Especially the upper one.

    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.
