There is one on the front passenger side and a torque strut on the front. The torque strut acts like a motor mount.
it should be on the back of the motor at least it is for my cavalier 96 Here is a much better explan. Passenger side next to the coolant bottle and Driver side between transmission housing and body rail. The only thing that is left is the Torque Strut underneath the engine next to the crankshaft pully.
One on passenger side by the coolant overflow tank. A strut style mount on the bottom passenger side next to wheelwell. A transmission mount is located inside the wheelwell on the drivers side.
Begin by compressing the strut spring with a spring compressor. Be very careful as the strut spring will be under hundreds of pounds of pressure. Remove the strut retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new struts.
To change the front strut it is not hard at all. Simply remove the tire, remove the break, remove the bottom bolts from the strut. Then remove the top bolt from the strut. Usually takes about 20-40 minutes to remove. Replacing is very simple as well. However, the front strut replacement will require a front-end alignment to be completed.
Make darn sure it isn't the tire first. Take the strut off, and have the bearing pressed.
It is as simple as removong 2 bolts and replacing the mount. Goodluck, JOe
4 engine mounts. front right, front center, torch strut that supports the radiador, & transmission mount
The?ætorque strut mounts help keep the engine and the transmission in place and reduce vibration. There are?ætwo visible bolts that connect the strut to the car structure. Unscrew the nuts and use a hammer to get them off.
I have a 2000 cavalier automatic and my motor and tranny are doing the same thing, try replacing your transmission mount and your torque strut motor mount. also check to see if you have the correct amount of fluid in your transmission... if neither of that hepls, then you probably have to replace your transaxle or torque converter. it could be so many things a really couldn't tell you exactly where to start..
There are 4 struts, They are not shocks.. They are called "coil over's". Meaning coil spring over strut. You will need a coil spring compressor to replace them yourself. Rent one at autozone.
take it to the dealer.
