Start the car and with the brakes applied put trans in forward gear and push on the throttle and if the engine raises the mount on the side the engine raises is the side the mount is broken. then put it in reverse and do the same thing if the engine raises then that mount is broken.

How can tell which lower motor mount is bad on my 2004 chevy impala 3.4 liter ? Does a bad motor mount make the engine have grinding noises after running the car?

With the park brake on, start the engine with the hood open so you can see it through the windshield. Put it in reverse and give it some gas, if the engine moves up, you have a broken mount. Do the same in drive. If the motor moves up then the mount on the side of the engine that moved up is broken. If these tests don't show a broken mount then your grinding noise is coming from elsewhere.

How can I tell if my crown victoria motor mounts are broken

You need to open the hood. You can have someone stand by the fender and look at the engine while you do this test. Now start the engine and put it into drive gear, apply the brake and step on the accelerator pedal to bring the RPM up a little. The helper must watch how much the engine as it lifts or twists. More than an inch or two you have a broken mount. Now do the same thing in reverse gear to check the other side. This vehicle is a rear wheel drive and will have 3 motor mounts. Left , right (both under the exhaust manifolds) and a rear mount at the rear of the transmission. This mount should be visually checked as well. I hope this helps.

What is 5 motor mounts that are bad. Can I drive

You can drive the car up to a certain point. If the motor mounts are just worn and not broken you can drive it, but It would be best if they were fixed. If they come loose you have the potential to wreck a lot of stuff, if they are broken, which is usually how you tell if they're bad or not, then I would definitely fix them before driving it.

Top engine mount

You need to loosen the motor mount slightly--just a full turn or two. Place a jack under the oil pan and lift the engine until the strain is relieved on the motor mount and finish removal. Replacement installation is the opposite except you'll want to tighten the new motor mount into place fully (if possible) before lowering the jack.

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
