SOURCE: How do i change a motor mount in a 1993 ford taurus?

The engine mounts (2) and the transmission mount serve to hold the drive train compontents in the chassis and do so flexibly and with the strength exceeding the torque generated by the engine. If not for the mounts, when opening the throttle (in gear), the engine and transmission would lurch out of the engine compartment!

Check the mounts by raising the hood and, with the engine running, holding the brake firmly with one foot, select drive or reverse, briefly accellerate while holding the brake firmly--observe while doing this the engine will rise slightly (good) to a couple of inches (not good). Do not let the car move, nor let anyone stand in the car's path were it to move. Accellerate for not more than two seconds when checking the mounts.

To change them you need to raise the car and safely support on jackstands under the side rail of the car in the indicated position. I have been able to do this raising only the passenger side.

Then you will need to carefully lift the engine, too. I have used a hydralic "bottle Jack" placed under the block at the edge of the oil pan.

Using 18mm wrenches loosen the nuts at the top and bottom of the mounts. I change one mount at a time. Remove the nutsand the the worn mount (careful- it's fluid filled-- nasty stuff, you would not like spilling it on yourself).

You may have to lift the engine quite high and wiggle the mount around to clear getting it out and the new one in. Orient the mount correctly so that the tabs fit the slots, start the nuts on the studs carefully, you don't want these cross threaded, then tighten completely, having lowered the engine fully onto the new mount first.

Check the new mount as described above.

Be very careful in doing all of this. Use tire chalks, set the parking brake. Check that the car is secure on the stands prior to getting under it. Use common sense too.

SOURCE: 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!

No screws

There metric bolts

you just try some on what you want to lossen
or whatever.

Obviously if you have to ask for a bolt size,
you either have no tools or experience

I need to replace the existing starter in my 2003 Ford Taurus wagon. I know that I have to jack the car up in order to remove the old starter. What I don't know, is how many bolts need to be removed...


Because of the Variety of mounting methods there are 2 to 4 bolts that should be visible as you look at the starter itself. Not counting the wiring connections. If this a sideways mounted motor with the Starter mounted on the front of the motor there will be 2 bolts holding it in place. If the motor is mounted regularly with the transmission extending under the vehicle the starter in on the rear of the motor near the firewall and will have up to 4 bolts holding it in place but most likely no more than 3. I would recommend getting a Haynes repair manual on the vehicle for more detailed instruction on removal and installation. This manual or a Chilton's manual are both available at the major Auto Parts stores and are fairly inexpensive.

Center main mototr mount bolt is missing,need size of bolt so I can replace it myself.


More than likely the mount is bad and you will have to buy the bolt from the dealer or a fabricating shop that sells metric bolts, or go to a junk yard to get a replacement for same car. pull the nut off the other side and measure from the top of the bolt to the end of the threads then go buy one at the store using the nut as your size guide and thread pitch and get a grade 8 bolt to replace it with.

I need steps on how to replace a motor for a 2001 ford taurus ses


ooo a fun ford project...well first remove battery, then the hood, go trough and remove all plug ins and any wire attatchments that are attached to the motor, next go through andremove any fuel, power steering, coolant, and A/C lines. the fuel and A/C lines require a special tool, remove the bolts from the exaust flanges underneath the car. take out bellhousing bolts remove the inspection plate from the transmission, remove the tourque converter bolts, remove motor mount bolts, put floor jack under tranny to support it then using a engine hoist (i love my skidsteer) jimmy the motor free from the tranny and slowly pull it out the top, you might have to jack the tranny up and down to allow for clearance for the engine. and of course wen you put the new one in... do all this fun ford stuff backwards
