I have a 2000 Saturn sl2 and The right front motor mount was broke right down the middle and I replaced with oem part and it seemed to help quit a bit but still shifting hard what is wrong you think .

There are 4 motor mounts on the engine. You found the top mount. The bottom mount on that side is a dog bone and is right under the crankshaft pulley. The bottom mount is on the other side in about the same place. The drivers side top mount is another dog bone and is under the battery box. For best results, change all four of them at once, and make sure to buy a GM original mount for the top one. The knockoff mounts just aren't as smooth and durable as the real thing. Believe me on this one, the huge difference is well worth the few extra bucks. 25315433-zejmo41uy3tce5x43qikgza0-5-0.jpg

I may have to replace my starter. Is it easy to replace in a 2006 Ford Taurus, can I do it myself? . How much should it cost to take it to a repair shop?

hi this depends on what engine/motor is fitted as there are a two different types of starter motor, first one is a top mount starter and the other is an inserted side mount, depending as i said which engine/motor you have got, but they are both easy to fit for an armature mechanic if you have the tools to do it it is only 3 or 4 bolts and 2 wires, you are looking at possibly 70 to 100 US to fit one, not including the price of the new starter..hope this helps please vote thanks

What is the dog bone

It's an engine mount. Usually it will be one at top/front engine and one onside /bottom engine. They are easily replaced, just be sure to take the weight off the mounts with a jack.

Need motor mounts for 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

I'm thinking it has 1 motor mount and 2 dog bones. The mounts usually cost around $30 each and the dog bones $20-25 depending on the material their made of. You can replace these yourself, one at a time. The engine has to be jacked up just enough to take the weight off when you remove the mount. After you have it remove, install you new one/ones and tighten. After removing jack, torque the bolts to spec. Same thing is done with the dog bones. It a type of Motor mount that prevents the engine from leaning weight. These are usually located, one front/top engine area and one on bottom engine area.

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!

Trying to reach my back plugs on a 2001 buick lesabre

The technical term for those "dog bones" are lateral torque struts. The motor mounts hold and support the power train vertically.
Hope this helps, let me know.

My motor mount is broken in my Ford taurus 1998

the worst that could happen is you put enough stress on the front motor mount that will also break, if your not burning out or doing any hard accelerating regularely you shouldt have to worry, on the other hand a junk yard motor mount is dirt cheap and would put your mind at ease
