1998 chevy lumina 3.1--how do you change the motor mount (passenger side with two studs on top & two studs on bottom)

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

A broken motor mount can be replaced by getting a large support member made of wood or metal and supporting the engine by its installation hanger on top the engine. You chain the motor to the support member and then gently jack up the motor just enough to take the tension off the bad mount. You take the slack out of the support member so it holds the weight of the motor. You can lower the jack slightly so the member is holding the weight. Then remove the bad side mount and replace with the new one. You will need air tools with long extensions and swivel sockets or socket adapters to remove the nuts. Otherwise you will be very frustrated and sore trying this with hand tools!

\015\012After that you jack the motor up slightly to remove the support member and then lower the engine back to its normal resting place.

\015\012The support member is safety insurance if your jack slips or slowly falls as many of them do with a lot of weight on them. Plus you wouldnt want the engine going too low and damaging the good mounts!
\015\012
\015\012You can put some wood or use short jackstands too as a backup to the support member as well. Hey! Better safe than sorry right?!
\015\012
\015\012Plus, always have someone there watch you in case you get to trouble with either the motor or the mount. It's easy to get pinched between stuff or have alignment troubles that only an outside observer can help you with.

\015\012Good luck and be very careful!

My passenger side front wheel moves side to side about an inch or two when front end is lifted off ground.I noticed it while i was rotating my tires, i just happened to grab the wheel before i took it off. Theres tension on it but i can still move it side to side. It doesnt move top to bottom. Its not the wheel bearing. I keep all my ball joints greased. It looks like there is play where the steering stabilizer bolts on the passenger side. The drivers side front wheel is tight. Is this norm

I am leaking ENGINE oil on the passenger's side of what appears to be the extension unit the automatic transmission, where the axel half-shaft mounts. There is one large bolt on the front top side of this case extension (13mm) and one small bolt on under this bolt near the bottom of this extention (10mm). What's going on? It only drips oil when the engine is running, and it is a lot of oil! I had to put 6 quarts in it to drive 20 miles home!

Losing coolant 2002 Chevy Cavalier 4-Door Sedan Engine - 2.2 liter SFI L4 5 Speed Manual Transmission After I've filled the reservoir, it's empty in a couple of days. Temp guage starts low and climbs but never gets about 195-197 The only place that I've ever seen coolant leaking is from a 90-degree fitting that is in between a place in the bottom rear passenger side of the engine compartment. It's in between where two other ''tubes'' go into a couple of plastic fittings.

I have a 2006 Toyota Sienna. When I adjust the automatic or manual heat settings, I hear a constant actuator noise from both the passenger and drivers sides and unless I turn up the heat to 78 degrees or warmer no driver side heat will come out of the top vent (no issues with the passenger side same high vent). When I turn off the vehicle, the actuator noise continues for a minute or two. Any ideas what has failed or how to correct it? I haven't had any service on the vehicle in over a yea


There's a chance that the actuator motor has either failed, or it's nylon gear has worn out. You will have to pull it out and inspect. ... 2006 Toyota Sienna

2000 mercedes CLK 320 (w 208) driver side floor mat is soaked, most likely from clogged drain of driver side water collector. This happened after the vehicle sat for a week under a tree that shedding little flower petles all over the car.

My chevy lumina has only 39000 original miles. recently the temperature guage started fluctuating from one extreme to the other while driving. the driver's side fan comes on once in awhile and the passenger side not at all. when the drivers side fan comes on it only stays on a little while and does not affect the temp guage at all.


You don't say where you are. You probably need a new thermostat. Cost for the part should be about $10. Labor to change it out should be $50 to $70, it takes less than an hour. Spring for fresh coolant, too.The fans: the d ... 1995 Chevrolet Lumina
