Re: engine mount leak

After further research and consideration, I'll have the dealer replace the mount for $500. [$200 for the part and $200 for the labor is what they quoted; I'm not bad at math, just a bit pessimistic and rounding it up to avoid further disappointment at the cashier's window.] I'm a wimp and I don't want to disconnect the catalytic converter and drop the exhaust parts necessary to provide room for the R&R, as I just don't have the heart for rusted, seized and broken exhaust bolts anymore. Apparently the only mount that is hydro-electric is that front mount, so the others should not need replacement. I just hope they don't mess something else up whilst it's in the shop, which is what usually happens and why I generally try to do everything myself.
