Hpno & Jaz Adventures! Changing the upper torque strut 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. If you only replace one strut or motor mount, you might experience more engine shaking, so please replace all of them around the same time, if it's too expensive do one by one but make sure they are replaced around the same time. 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 by a professional, to save money ask them if they can charge you for only labor and you buy the parts, I have a mechanic that will charge me for the parts (cost price) as well so it actually comes out cheaper for him to buy the part than for me to buy the part, do what you must to save money but at the same time you get what you pay for, not always its better to get the cheapest part.
PT Cruiser Engine Mounts. Part 2
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.
