Hpw do I remove 216 motor from my 1950 fleetline


first thing to do is remove the hood,next disconnect one of the battery cables,( I assume you have a chain hoist or a portable hoist)
if you don't have you can rent one for so much a day. make sure you put pulling chains on the motor, you will probably have to take off the valve cover when you get that done remove two head bolts, one at hook the chains through the head bolts, now make the chains are taught front of the motor and one at the back. now on each side of the motor (lower part of motor) you will fine the motor mounts, make sure you don't have the chains to tight just snug, when you have the motor mounts bolt loose, not taken clear out. You will to disconnect the drive shaft from the truck, I think it will a 7/16 or a 1/2 inch bolts you have to remove, another thing , have a pan ready because the transmission oil will leak out the tail of it. ok here we go,find the tranny mounts and remove the bolts(be darn careful under there. something I did not mention before, make sure you remove the radiator and of course all the wires and fuel lines oil lines,etc.I hoped I helped have a happy thanksgiving.

Front right motor mount bad


Motor mounts can be replaced with some basic tools.You will probably need a floor jack and a block of 2x4 to raise the engine by the oil pan.A prybar will help to get the old mount out.You will need the correct size sockets/wrenches,of course.This job is much easier with a lift,but can be done without one.

Need xplodd view of motor mounts , transmission mount , brackets on a 1996 mercury villager van


On a lift is the easiest way because you will need to raise and support the engine while the motor mount is replaced. Once you have a new mount, I would replace both while you are at it, the procedure will become self evident. Not a difficult job.

Actually this can be done at home in your driveway in a couple hours max. Raise the vehicle on jack stands and be sure to set the parking break and block the rear tires. Then use a block of wood and a floor jack under the pulley to raise the motor just enough to take the weight off the mounts. Both the front and rear mounts are attached to the same cross member and you will need to do 50% of the job of taking out the front mount to get the rear mount out and visa versa so it is worth it to replace both if you are going to do one. Remember not to tighten them down more than snug until after the weight of the motor is back on the mounts. There are torque specifications in the front of your repair manual. Of course if you have a lift great, but for most of us do not think that you cannot do this simply because you don't have a lift.

Have a 2002 grand am that makes a loud clunk on acceleration when it is up to normal operating temp. 3.4L auto. raised front tires off ground and ran in gear. it clunked when the brakes were relased and...


mounts can be deceiving try using a pry bar to lift weight of them sometimes they split at their mounting plates and can be hard to spot.also check cv joints in front axles&check exhaust mounting points good luck

I think a motor mount is broken the engine seems to move when you accelerate.


The easiest way to check for broken engine mount is to put one foot on the brake and push the throttle to watch the engine move. the mounts are located on the bottom of the engine
about where the transmission and engine are bolted together. Make sure that you test in foward and reverse,because they might both be broken. `Engine oil leaks on the rubber mounts and softens the rubber on the mounts makes the go bad . Also hard acceleration is hard on the mounts

Im buying this truck for $500. the only thing i hear wrong with it is the motor shakes bad almost like the bolts mounting to the tranny r bad. can those bolts be replaced and the motor and tranny stay...


i would check the motor mounts to make sure the bolts are tight, then i would check the rear transmission mount bolts, also to make sure they are tight. yes , if the bolts mounted to the tranny need to be replaced, you can normally get them from a auto part store.

HVAC blower will not work....I have 12 volts at the motor so I am thinking the motor is bad...any chance the resistor could still be the issue?


no,,but dont forget to make sure you have a good ground as some of these are mounted in plastic and must be grounded.

Replace lowerr right motor mount on dodge 2001


Yes you can. Just put the car on JACK STANDS, As you will need to raist the engine slightly with a jack to take the load off of the mount to remove it. Buy the new mount first, so you will see where the bolts go. BE safe and don't rely on a tire jack

Need how-to on replacing the rear motor mount


"The" motor mount implies one of the three (actually the rear on is a transmission mount).
Loosen the bolts on the mounts that you are keeping.
Next, place a 2x6 about 1 ft long under the oil pan and place a jack under the oil pan and 2x6 board.
Apply pressure (just a little) to the jack.

Now, remove the bolts that hold the bad motor mount. Apply enough lift on the jack to get the engine weight off the motor mount (and no more).

Next, knock out the bad mount and insert the new mount. Insert the bolts (hand tighten).

Next, lower the jack until the block rests on the new mount. Tighten the other motor mount bolts and the new mount bolts (torque to about 35 Ft. lbs.)

You are done!

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.
