You've got 4 mounts total. A transmission mount, then on the other side of the motor, you've got a mount that goes to the middle of the engine that is in the fender, and upper torque strut and a lower torque strut on that same side.
An Audi tt is known to have 7 engine motor mounts. It is suggested that that stretch bolts be used when replacing the mounts to ensure the right amount of torque is applied to hold the engine in place.
The absorb vibrations, and allow the torque of the engine to be absorbed.
There are four mounts on the vehicle, one at the belt end of the engine (front engine mount), one under the battery area (transmission mount), and one on the front and rear centerline of the vehicle (torque mounts or roll-stop mounts).
it has three mounts plus two torque mounts. It has one mount on the driver side, one other mount is on the top of the Transmission. and one that mounts to a bracket on the back side of the engine. the two torque mounts and on the front one is part of the AC bracket and the other is mounted to the front of the transmission.
You support the engine at the oil pan using a clock of wood on the jack. Then remove the engine mount trough bolts. Jack the engine up until it clears the mounts. Then remove the old ones and install the new ones. Lower the engine until the holes match up, install the through bolts, torque them to specs and lower the jack the rest of the way.
There is one on the front passenger side and a torque strut on the front. The torque strut acts like a motor 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.
Excessive engine torque. Also the rubber will deteriorate if its really old or soaked with rubber.
It appears that you will have to remove both front motor mounts in order to make room to lift out the entire dual fan assembly. After that either replace entire assembly or replace both motors. I would be darned sure that the fan motors are the problem before getting into all that. The front mounts are torque mounts they do not hold the engine from falling out of the car they prevent rotation of the motor which is good in this case as it gives you more space Good Luck!
Basically, the purpose of the torque strut mount is to keep the engine and transmission from vibrating excessievely. This smooths the ride, keeps the engine/transmission from excessivel stressing the engine/rtansmission mounts on the frame, and provides for a smoother ride and better drivability. Without the torque strut mount, the top of the engine would be unsupported and damage to the drive train would occur.
The torque converter clutch is inside of the toque converter. You must replace the whole torque converter as an assembly. The torque converter is sandwiched between the engine and transmission inside the transmission bellhousing. To access and replace the torque converter, the transmission will have to be removed. The trnsmission on that car is removed by raising the car on a hoist, supporting the engine with a special engine support tool, removing the lower engine cradle assmebly, and removing the transmission out through the bottom of the vehicle.
This job is of skilled to moderate difficulty. It will require the vehicle to be safely lifted and the engine to be supported. Once lifted and the engine supported the two engine mounts can be unbolted. It would help to have an air wrench due to the torque involved. There should be two bolts retaining each mount. Once removed the mounting surfaces should be cleaned and degreased. The new mounts can then be replaced.
take your car to a shop if you must ask such a question. You obviously do not have the skill totackle such a complex task as remove the engine and then replace the Torque converter.
An automatic transmission uses a torque converter to pass energy from the engine into the transmission. A torque converter is essentially a tub of fluid secured to the engine's flywheel that acts like an adjustable vise when spinning. The converter pushes fluid through tiny compartments inside its tub to create pressure. When the pressure is high enough, the converter passes the spinning energy from the engine into the transmission. You should replace a torque converter that is broken or one that cannot handle the power of an engine. Matching the right torque converter to an engine adds to the life of the transmission and allows the engine to operate at a higher level of performance.
If it's an auto trans then torque converter is bad or unlined bad
Thuds under torque, as when the car is put into drive, can be casued by too much engine movement due to damaged, weak or broken engine or transmission mounts.
If the car has an automatic transmission, then it might have lock up torque converter. If the torque converter is engaged while the engine is at idle, then the engine will stall. Bring the vehicle to reputable transmission repair facility and have the replace the torque converter clutch solenoid.
Either the engine or the transmission has to come out to replace the torque converter.
You have to remove the transmission to replace the torque converter.You have to remove the transmission to replace the torque converter.
Try engine mounts. That could be the cause. If in gear and auto may be the torque converter.
I just installed the mounts on my 2000 Impala (and I think the model's mounts didn't change with mines versus yours) and there were 3 mounts. 1 on the passenger side of car (right behind the oil filter), the transmission mount (right above the axle on the driver side), and you also have a torque strut mount that's on top of the engine, as soon as you open the hood of the car).
pull engine, unbolt torque converter from flex plate (3 bolts), fill new torque converter with ATF fluid(so it dont start up dry), place new torque converter on to the transmission input shaft, reinstall engine, from underneath now u can spin the engine over by hand to line up the bolt holes and tighten the torque converter to the flexplate.
Purchase your replacement part. Put a jack under the engine with a board to support the engine. Put slight pressure on the engine but no more. Remove the mount and replace. Lower jack.
454 engine torque is 752 pounds of torque
