Hello Everyone,

I had a vibration in my car not too long ago and I have been hunting it down. So far I have done a complete tune up including changing the ignition coil, just last night I chaged the passanger upper motor mount the Hydraulic one. My car feels much better, but I still feel a very small vibration still. I have the clip to show before changing the motor mount on the passenger side let me know what you think?

Also do you know if my car will ever run like a 2009 car if I change all of the motor mounts. You know I am aiming to just hear the engine purr, but no virbrations. Or am I just asking for too much?

Thanks

John

gota do the lower engine mount, its on the bottom of the engine and looks like a dog bone. CFM sells a few different ones, all work the same and make a big improvement in the engine torquing like that in your video.

I'm going to be replacing the rear mount next week when it shows up. From what I have read the install is not all that hard. Here is the how to for the MTX-75. Scroll down till you get to SkaAddicts post(he did the small write up for replacing the mount on a MTX-75 car inside WD40s original how-to for the svt rear mount replacement) WD40s pics and info on the first page will also be of some additional help if you do this yourself...
Clicky!

DO NOT install a performance lower engine mount (dog bone). The performance once use polyurethane bushings making the mount more stiff, thus creating more vibrations. From a performance point of view it is great, but for what you need OEM and only OEM.
