While on the topic of DIY polyurethane, how much are new engine mounts?

1: car tranny jerks engine (1-2 shift especially)
2: when starting off cold i.e. leaving my dorm or house and accelerating from a complete stop, a shift of weight is felt and a very subtle noise is heard.
3: my car is due for a timing belt/water pump shortly so will the labour literally be free/cheap for the mounts?
4: how do you find a broken motor mount? I mean are they easy to spot or can it not be physically damaged but still broken?

Engine/transmission excessive shaking/jerking is a sign of broken mounts.
All new mounts (5) are about $300-350.

To fill front/rear mounts, one has to lift the whole engine while replacing timing belt/water pump doesn't, thus the shop can charge extra for labor so ask first. Since this polyurethane is not a liquid but paste, it is more convenient to work with, however front/rear engine mounts are not easy to reach and require to remove top rubber piece first



BTW, old mounts still can be used and just fill the gaps.

No, I'm not selling complete mounts .
You need to buy them first and have any shop local to you to fill them up. My shop can do it if you want.

Hondaautomotiveparts list NEW mounts you need at the following price:
The side mount bolt was extra for me, so cratch that.

LOL thanks... I knew you weren't selling them, but you sounded like you had the engine hoist at your disposal lol. Too bad you aren't near Toronto. Btw, thanks for the prices, I figure if I remove the engine, might as well have all new mounts available at hand and worst case I sell them to someone for like 75% of what I paid or trade them for something lol.

well you can get an engine puller thing and strap the engine to it then pull them out and let the engine hang there, I guess.

I got a quote for roughly 400+ to replace all 5 motor mounts with new ones (parts+labor), does that sound about right?

Would just like to add that TAS auto is selling the front engine mount for $70! sounds like a good deal.

love this thread, very helpful, however i have a question... i looked at mine today (before i checked this thread out) and my front engine mount... the line that goes in/under the mount seems to have fluid on it as if the mount is leaking... does anyone know if this could be a bad engine mount, or just the line is bad? also, if leaked enough is there fluid to replace sumwhere for this? and my car does get its shake on more now that i think about it, i think this could be the cause...

also, if i replaced one mount at a time, would i not have to take out the engine completely, just jack it up from underneath?

The line you are refering to is a vacuum line and as such the fluid is coming from the your busted front mount. I did it one at a time but you might be able to get away with more at a single time but I did one since I only had a jack and a piece of wood supporting the middle of the powertrain.

I'm curious about a few things:
First, if the front and rear mounts (which we know are liquid filled and is attached to a vacumm line) don't have any liquid in them and the vacumm line is not hooked up to it, will this affect the mounts' function? I bought mine off ebay and they did not have any liquid in them nor a connection for my vacumm line. My shop installer replaced my front and rear set with these and simply plugged the lines up and just left them unconnected and said that they're just "breathers". Anyone care to comment on this?

Secondly has anyone ever seen a square looking piece of weight near or around the mounts called the subframe weights? What are they for?
Here's a pic to show what I'm talking about.

can anyone here provide a thorough DIY w/pics hopefully for replacing the front and side motor mounts for a 99 TL? I assume they are in the same exact place as a 6G AV6. I am told I would only need to support the engine with a floor jack and piece of wood(not lift it, just keep it where it should be) while I replace the mounts.

I just changed my side mount last week and I didnt even support it with a jack and i was able to change it... but for the front I would think you need the support because it's holding more weight there.... But yeah i have the haynes manual and it says just support it with a floor jack and a piece of wood... you won't need a lift for it

I bought my new mounts, and am going to do this. I have a question about the transmission mount that's second from the left, though. In the before and after pictures, it's facing one way, then the other way. Do I just fill the whole thing, or are there any parts I'm supposed to leave open for the transmission to be stuck into? I can't tell from the view of the "after" picture because the mount is turned the opposite way.
