jack up car in air with jack stands safety first. get a floor jack with a peice of 2 by 4 under the engine and trans pans and remove bolts securing moter mounts to frame slowly jack up engine just enough to remove mounts work slowly because if you move the engine to much you can break something that's not meant to be stretched. do one at a time to keep it simple quality over speed and there should be 3 to 4 mounts usually two on top by the fenders and two in the center of the engine underneath front and back.

*******************************************************************

The above is a good general answer about replacing motor mounts... but not entirely accurate.

90-93 Celicas have four motor mounts. One is underneath in the front by the radiator, one is in the lower rear by the firewall, one is on the passenger side near the top by the strut tower, and the last is on the driver's side, sandwiched in above the trans and below part of the frame.

The two that usually go bad are the front and rear lower, and both are fortunately easy to change. After jacking up the car and supporting safely as mentioned above, you will need to drop the center fore-aft engine crossmember, which is held on by bolts to the main subframe. Both mounts are attached to this sucker. You probably won't need to even support the engine to change these, but keep your jack handy in case you need to "rock" the engine back and forth to line up the bolt holes. Simply unbolt the mounts and install the new ones.. not brain surgery. The hardest part is getting the car jacked up.

As far as the two side mounts go, they are a little more challenging. You probably will not need to jack up the entire car, but you will still need a jack to support the engine during surgery.

Here's some illustrations. Many thanks to celicatech.com for the illustrations, and countless invaluable tips on keeping these ol' rice grinders going.

You will absolutely need to support the engine during this procedure. Once all the bolts are removed, jack it up a hair to facilitate the installation of the new mount. This would also be a good time to change your timing belt and water pump, as this mount must be removed to do so.

Once again, you will need to support the engine. This is not as easy as the picture makes it out to be, as getting to some of the bolts is very hard. There is quite a lot of stuff in the way here. Have patience.

How many engine mounts does a Toyota Celica have?

3 engine mounts, 1 transmission mount. 1 on passenger side to frame, 1 attached to cross member by radiator, 1 next to firewall on same crossmember. the tranny mount is on transmission case, attached to frame on driver's side. You can replace the front and back ones without dropping the engine. The tranny and passenger side mounts will support the engine for that. This is true for the 1986-1993 years, not sure on later yrs, but probable. 3 engine mounts, 1 transmission mount. 1 on passenger side to frame, 1 attached to cross member by radiator, 1 next to firewall on same crossmember. the tranny mount is on transmission case, attached to frame on driver's side.

How do you replace motor mounts on 98 ford escort?

There is 1 mount on the front of the engine and 2 mounts on the transmission. Put a large block of wood under the oil pan of the engine and jack it up to take the weight off the mounts. Remove the bolt and fasteners on the engine mount. Replace it first. Then replace the 2 mounts on the transmission. The front mount is accessable but the rear mount you have to take the cross member off to get to it.

Can a 4 cylinder engine be replace with a 6-cylinder on a highlander?

If you are replacing it with a stock Toyota engine it should not be an impossible task, since the six is the larger engine option anyway. However, it will involve SOME modifications such as new engine mounts, exhaust hookup - etc. The remainder of the engine compartment "accessories" should be standard all across the Toyota line and be no real trouble for a mechanic to install on the new engine.
