PT Cruiser engine mounts are not designed to last very long. This is just a rough look at what worn mounts can look like. It is reasonably an easy job to do, BUT if you are going to replace the 3rd mount, which is more or less centre of the motor, be prepared to drop the motor to change it. There is next to no room to even undo, let alone removing and replacing the mid mount. ALL 3 mounts are on the one side of the engine, Why 3??? I dont know but dont be shy to try do it yourself. As top and bottom are reasonably easy to change.
Why i put this together, was because i couldnt find next to no info on the PT,s engine mounts, so this will give a very rough look at how it all goes.
2006 PT Cruiser Engine Mounts
Bad engine mounts top and bottom. These engine mounts are fairly new (10
months) a common problem from I hear.
Where to look and what to expect.
Ordering Torque Solution inserts and new mounts. Just cause I hate doing
the same work over and over again. Will post again the procedure and the
affects of the torque solutions after Holidays. Torque solutions inserts I
find on Ebay and Amazon for about 30 bucks.
Dont mind the belt noise that too will be replace, hoping its the belt and
not one of the bearing on the pulley system. Im doing a before and after.
Thanks for watching.
How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997
Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors,
make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They
determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich
(with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).
PT Cruiser Power Steering Pressure Switch repair
Find, clean, and if need be, replace the Power Steering Pressure Switch on
your PT Cruiser. I had Check Engine Light on, and the auto shop checked
it, showing error code P0551, defined as A) Power Steering Pressure Switch
Defective or B) Check Connector and Wiring. I bought a replacement switch
($25), but as it turned out, I just needed to clean my connectors and the
error message was cleared, but replacing the switch would have been easy
too. This is an easy and inexpensive repair for a beginner with basic
tools and automotive knowledge.
It's my first instructional video, and I was only motivated to do it
because I could not find any clear instructions on where to find this
switch on the car. I hope that it will save you some time and frustration.
Camera is shaky at times, but I hope good enough so you can see what you
need to see.
Hpno & Jaz Adventures! Changing the top right motor mount on a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT
This is my first auto repair video. I'm not a professional videographer nor
a mechanic. Under no circumstance am I saying I am a professional. We
usually do things ourselves to save money and because we know how to do
them, but when we don't we do see a professional mechanic. This video does
not replace in any way the advice of a professional mechanic. You might
experience more car shaking after replacing a motor mount, specially if you
only replace one and you have other bad motor mounts. Mine were replaced
about 3 1/2 years ago by the dealer. They should not wear that quick, but I
drive my car a lot and I drive it hard so that's why I had to replace them
again. Plus when I bought my car it had already been hit apparently (my
mechanic said so) and the frame of the car in one side is pushed in which
might cause more vibration and more wear and tear. I purchased this motor
mount from Advanced Auto Parts and it cost me $37.99 plus tax so around 41
bucks. I know at Auto Zone is the same price at least in my area and you
can find them at ebay or another store for cheaper. If you are going to get
it replaced at a professional, I do advice for you to ask if you can buy
your own part. I know when I used to go to Tire Kingdom I would always buy
my part and just pay for labor because they double the prices on parts now
that I moved, I don't have the same luck. Some places will not accept that.
But if you know where they buy their parts which is usually an auto part
store near them, just buy it yourself. Get a quote and the parts you need
and then give it to them to use. Price might vary in your state. The other
motor mounts will be checked and replaced as well at a later time. If I do
a video of the replacement I will post it. I believe that one can learn
about cars and learn enough to do your own repairs. But nothing compares
with professional advice.
