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.
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.

Dodge Neon Transmission Drain & Fill
Just figured I'd record myself changing the trans fluid on my 00 Neon.
Directions: Jack up car on pinch weld, set jack stand, set oil catch pan
under transmission and remove drain plugs with 15mm socket. Once fluid
drains, replace drain plug and remove Fill plug with your hand (But could
you pliars and access it over the drivers side wheel). Use Siphon Hose or
long funel to pour 2.5 quarts into the fill hole, put cap back on and your
done!!. Go do your local dodge dealer for the trans fluid.
