Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet Lumina ?

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

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\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\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.
