  • need new engine mounts

    I get a lot of slop in SVT when I shift and it "feels" like the motor mounts are shot. The vehicle has 250K miles on it, so no surprise. If I understand correctly, the best rear motor mount is one PRT sells and for the front right motor mount (neat the PS pump), is it possible to rebuild the stock part with a new rubber damper, or is buying a whole new part the only way to go ?

    thanks,

    I have never seen the motor mount by the power steering fail. It is always the Roll Restrictor behind the transmission or the front mount that goes. The one over the transmission is prone to fail as well. You can rebuild the roll restrictor yourself with urethane, not too difficult. Get the 70 or 80 hardness type.

      I replaced both upper mounts on mine since both were bad. The upper engine mount can go bad if the lower mounts are also bad.

        I thought about filling my rear restrictor with 80, but if PRT would make one that would save me some hassle. Given the miles on the car anything is likely to go. Having said that, it still runs great.

            IM still here. I went to the Pull a Part and there are a few contours on the lot. If I try to get the rear engine support off one of these, do I have to support the engine first ? I kind of hate getting under a under a junker on a lot.

              As long as your only pulling the front or rear you will be ok but obioulsy don't remove the side mounts. You missed an SVT Contour that had been there for a few months. I pulled a few things from it.
