You have to replace the whole mount. They aren't that expensive. I suppose you could replace just the rubber, but they don't sell them that way.

When you are dealing with the stabilization of your engine and it's performance, don't go bass ackwards. Do it right or not at all. Motor mounts come with the rubber attached already. If the rubber is not fully attached to a motor mount-- take them back.

The rubber on the mount is actually attached to the metal on the top and bottom. When it goes bad the rubber seperates from the metal. The new mount comes in one piece ready to bolt in.

How do i know which motor mount needs replacement


With car in drive/reverse and foot hard on brake if the engine moves when gas pedal is depressed and quickly released in both D&R, then that mount/mounts is defective...

Engine mount should be replaced if:

1) The hard rubber surface is covered with heat check cracks.

2) The rubber is separated from the metal plate of the engine mount.

3) The rubber is split through the center of the engine mount



The transmission case will crack or break if either engine mounts or transmission rear mount is broken...Here is a GM Service bulletin addressing the issue:

#02-07-30-024B



The transmission mount (see drawing) test:

>Raise and support the vehicle

>Raise the transmission/transaxle in order to remove the weight from the transmission/transaxle mount and create slight tension in the rubber.

Replace trans. mount if anyone of the three conditions listed above exist

How do I change engine mount rubber


Depends on your car. Some mounts bolt to the frame, some to the engine. Either way. raise the car, set on jack stands. use the jack to raise the engine some. Remove the center bolt of the mount. remove the bolts from the engine or frame. Raise the engine more. enough to get the mount out. replace the mount.

Liter engine automatic


you probably have a bad motor mount. Look under the hood, passenger side of engine compartment cast iron mount with rubber insert. Is the rubber insert worn visually inspecting. If you cannot tell, have a friend start the car, emergency brake on, foot on brake, shift from park to drive, does the motor jump in the mount? shift from drive to reverse, does it jump again. If so bad mount, local auto repair store should carry. you will have to jack up the engine carefully not much and not directly on oil pan, you just have to relieve the weight on the mount to replace. several m10 bolts, 15mm socket to remove. retighten fasteners to 58+/- 9Nm of torque. good luck.

How would I know if the motor mounds are bad on a 98 cadillac deville


Simple test should show broken mounts. Place the tranny in drive and with the brakes full on rev the engine and watch for excessive engine movement sideways. Check rear engine mount (rear axle drive) try to lift the rear of the tranny and see the movement in the rear engine mount. For side mounted engines the mount bolts should be in the center of the rubbers . If they are to the bottom of the rubbers , the mounts need replacing.

My motor mounts and trans mounts rubbers are soft, are they difficult or expensive to replace?


No, if you have an engine hoist they are very easy to change (1 nut and two bolts per engine mount, two bolts for the transmission mount). The trans mount rubber can be changed with just a floor jack.

I have engine vibration in 2004 Trailblazer. Vibrates when at a stop. Some vibration when in nutrel, but really bad when put into drive. Had motor mounts replaced. Replaced the plugs and coil packs. ...


Good call on the engine mounts, this problem has had a lot of TB owners scratching their head. Hope you used genuine GM mounts, aftermarket mounts tend to crush too much sending you back with the same problem you started with. With aftermarket mounts, the engine will not be as high as needed, the rubber isn't as stiff. Seen this many times. The other thing to check is you tranny mounts. Engine and tranny mounts are usually the culprit with vibration while in gear and stopped with TB's. What type of plugs did you install? Have you cleaned your throttle body?

I think a motor mount is broken the engine seems to move when you accelerate.


The easiest way to check for broken engine mount is to put one foot on the brake and push the throttle to watch the engine move. the mounts are located on the bottom of the engine
about where the transmission and engine are bolted together. Make sure that you test in foward and reverse,because they might both be broken. `Engine oil leaks on the rubber mounts and softens the rubber on the mounts makes the go bad . Also hard acceleration is hard on the mounts

Replaced timing belt and noticed the rubber bushings in the torque struts were broken. Right engine mount rubber also cracked, Did not replace them and the engine jumps up when put in drive.Do I need to...


hi yes it would be adviseable to replace all three, if they are broken its a sure sign they need replacing, if not you could cause more damage to other parts like exhaust and gear linkage and maybe fuel lines ( these suffer from bad fuel lines as it is ) so to save a lot of bucks spend a few..hope this helps

My car's dash rumbles very hard when idling and in reverse. My friend said something in the (AUTO) transmission is causing the hard idling. Any ideas?


Good afternoon. Sounds like you need to check the engine/transmission mounts. Bad mounts will cause a vibration you are describing and will transmit normal engine vibration into the frame of vehicle causing vibration to occur. Most mounts are made of rubber but some are filled with oil and are called hydro-mounts. Check all mounts for cracked rubber at mount where it attatches to engine,transmission and frame. Hope you find this information useful! Have a great day!

Motor mount msy need to be replaced and I just paid someone to do it a year ago--I need diagrams to troubleshoot/investigate


How do you know if it "doesn't seem to be new" if you don't know where it is? Why was it replaced in the first place? There are usually three of them, one or two on one end and two or one on the other end of the engine. You must jack up the front end of the car so that you can find the mounts (use jack stands under both sides to keep from getting crushed if the jack slips). Mounts are usually two metal plates with a rubber biscuit between--one side bolted to the engine and the other side to the frame. If the biscuit has come free from either plate--replace that mount. Bad rubber is usually swollen or torn badly. If oily, clean with rag. There is usually an upper brace on top of the engine that can become damaged if one of the lower mounts is damaged or missing bolts. Good luck with this.
