Fig. 1 Front Engine Mount

When raising or supporting the engine for any reason, do not use a jack under the oil pan, any sheet metal or crankshaft pulley. Due to the small clearance between the oil pan and oil pump screen, jacking against the oil pan may cause it to be bent against the pump screen, resulting in a damaged oil pickup unit.

  1. Using a jack, support engine.
  2. Remove engine mount through bolt and nut, Fig. 1. Raise engine only enough for sufficient clearance. Check for interference between rear of engine and the dash panel which could cause distributor damage.
  3. Remove engine mount assembly bolts, nuts and washers.
  4. Remove mount assembly.
  5. Reverse procedure to install.
