Check engine mounts
On cars with dealer installed air conditioning:
If the right side engine mount is collapsed, replace it with the type of mount used on cars with factory installed air-conditioning.
Adjust engine mounts
Loosen the body brackets for the front and rear engine mounts.
Move the engine/transmission assembly from side to side so that the rear engine mount is straight. Start the engine and let it idle.
Move the engine/transmission assembly frontwards and backwards until;
The least amount of engine vibration is felt in the front bumper.
Hold the engine/transmission assembly at this point while a second mechanic tightens the engine mounts.
Tighten engine mounts
- Push up slightly on the front mount bracket to center the mount in the bracket and tighten.
