    Hi Damien  sorry for delay in answering.  The Mazda dealer told me.  The car run on normal temp. I have never seen the needle even move near the center.  They also told me about the motor mounts, but I don't feel any jerking when I shift to drive or even reverse.  I used to work and a mazda dealership and was married to a mechanic.  I'm not that gullible but as tipical as a woman they always try to see if they can get u.

Can i ask who told you to replace them? is the car over heating that you need to replace the thermostat?? and as for the motor mount are you sure its gone?? just asking cos of the very low mileage, its very suspicious that some one could be doing you over.

Iam no mech but is it hard 2 change the motor n transmission mounts in a 96 ford thunderbird 3.8 engine if it is whats the going price 2 do so i dont get taken

It is fairly easy to do if you have a lift, but it is possible to do on the ground with a jack and jack stands. You will need to be able to unbolt both sides of the mount and support the engine with the jack while you replace the mounts. If you download the autozone app to a smart pone or tablet it will give you a repair estimate calculator,

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.

Was told I need a new motor for my 1999 dodge durango, can you estimate how much it will cost?

There are several variables present here. First, are you replacing Just the engine short-block? or are you doing a Long-block? (Includes cylinder heads)
Then there is the question of if you want to replace it with a used engine or a remanufactured engine.
Depending on the shop performing the repairs, a used engine can cost less than half the cost of a remanufactured engine. ( The installer stuffs it into your vehicle pretty much the way it came from the salvage yard) or a used engine can cost almost the same as a remanufactured engine. (The installer strips the engine from the salvage yard and transfers all engine accessories, including intake manifold,exhaust manifolds, oil pan, sensors, etc. from your original engine. - this is the better way, but it adds labor costs)
Most used engines will have only a 90 day warranty. Some salvage yards will only give you 30 days.
Remanufactured engines vary from 12 months or 12,000 miles all the way to 3 years or 100,000 miles for the high-end ones like Jasper.
You need to determine what is important to you. Do you want it as cheap as possible? or do you need a good warranty on the thing after you have spent your hard-earned money on getting it replaced?
The actual price can vary by thousands of dollars. Your best bet is to get a reputable shop that does engine replacements to give you 3 estimates. (If they won't do 3 estimates, you probably don't want them working on your truck.)
When I do engine replacement estimates for my customers, I usually give them all the options. I will write-up an estimate based on a used engine, then I will write one based on a low-end remanufactured engine, then I will write another one based on a Jasper Engine. I make sure they understand the warranty differences of each option. Then I let the customer decide the coarse of action.

In my opinion, Jasper has the best warranty in the business. They put ALL of their engines on a dynomometer for testing before they leave their facilities. They are nation-wide, and I have never had any problems getting my customers taken care of in the event of a warranty claim - even when they were clear across the country on vacation/business when a problem occured. Jasper is the only remanufacturer that I am aware of that will pay the labor to repair the engine if it has a problem. You will, however, pay dearly for this warranty.
In any event, it is still cheaper than buying a new truck.

Theirs more than one mount and they cost 60 -125 at a parts store Most fair mechanics will just change the front one and send you down the road for less than $200 for one mount. The dealer will reconmend them all and their right if over 100 thou miles and get out $500-800

Your best bet would be to pick up a Chilton manual from autozone. It will give you step by step instructions on how to do all kinds of things with your vehicle, including the motor mounts.

Listen to your regular mechanic! These engines are a nightmare. If you can trade or sell this now while it is still running, you will be avoiding a downward spiral of very expensive problems.

Google: "chrysler sludge" and have a stiff drink handy.

Car hits hard when stepping on gas

Personally I would take it to another reputable shop in the area for a diagnosis & estimate. My guess is that the cost wouldn't be too much if anything, and then you have an expert opinion to go on, how can they dispute it ? If it's nissan warranty, call their customer service number in your manual, and get them working for you too. A Transmission or motor mount problem could also be diagnosed by a good transmission shop.
