Changing Motor Mounts

11-25-2004, 11:51 PM
Is it possible to change the motor mounts myself? I have no experience with this and I was just wondering if anyone has tried it.

How hard is it?

Is it just something that would be better handled by a mechanic?

Thanks in advance...

The process itself isn't hard at all, really. However, you do need proper tools and equipment (I can't see this happening without a lift) because you need to support the engine while you remove the old and install new mounts. One at a time, of course. Also it will be hard to do alone even with all the necessary equipment.

As stated above, yes can do them yourself, just use a trolly jack, or sissor jack with a flat bit of wood on top... Do one mount at a time.. but watch were you take the pressure of the motor with the jacks. If you have to use the oil pan, use the corner of it, this has the most strength.

Hope this helps.
