Replacing motor mounts on a 4th gen.

Anyone ever do this with the motor still in the car? I searched and still want more info on how to go about changing them.

I'll be using a couple boards to place under the oil pan and also jack it up slightly from the trans. Drivers side and front should be easy enough, the passenger side I'll have to remove battery and intake. WD40 everything and let it soak, then tackle it. Anti-seize copper-coat everything before bolting in the new.


Any other tips/advice before I start? I don't have the rear mount replacement, is that mount crucial in holding the motor in place or will I get away with not replacing it? I got the front, left and right mounts (brand new OEM) for $80 so thought why not replace them and get rid of ole shakey motor syndrome.

Re: Replacing motor mounts on a 4th gen.

I just put Place Racing Mounts in with the engine in. I did the rear, left, and right, with that kit you don't even need the front but I left the stock one there. They're all very easy, especially the sides. Although it probably helped me having deleted ac, and ps. For the rear and trans mount you will need a good swivel and a 6 or 12" extension well the more extensions the better really lol. Oh and for the rear and right all I did was use a board as you said and lifted the engine at the oil pan. And for the tranny I put a block right at the bell and jacked up there. Oh one piece of advice, LEAVE THE RIGHT MOUNT FOR LAST LOL. It will give you the most room to work with. I decided to do the tranny last and snapped a stud in the process:) GOOD LUCK!
