    Hydraulic motor mount

    Does anyone know how to diagnose the hydraulic motor mount which stands on the right side of the engine?
    To be more precise I think about this:



    I know it can be diagnosed when the 'oil or liquids' comes out of it, but is it possible even without liquid that it is in poor condition?

    Thanks.

    Never seen that. WHere do you live, what engine type do you have, car model, year, transmission, AWD ?..etc. There are several variation across the world with different engines, 2.0, 1,6, diezel....WE will ask for that each time if you do not write all of that down in your profile or signature.

    When you are facing your engine. Its on the left side. You can remove the rubber "boot" pretty easily. Check under that for signs of leaking. It may need replacing.

    I did not remove the rubber "boot" but looking around and browsing the hydraulic motor mount I can not see the leaking.

    Samus...I understand then that this fluid motor mount (instead of a conventional rubber mount) acts as a kind of "shock absorber"..its failure might be an explanation for those complaining about what they describe as excessive vibration ....I remember late Dodge Omni ruining rubber mounts and shaking the whole car body...

    @LMP I just have this problem with vibration on idle. I've tried everything I could to try and I still have a problem with vibration.
    Here I am describing what I did:
    http://clubsx4.com/forum/showthread....451#post116451

    My hydraulic motor mount does not drain the liquid so I wonder if it is possible that he was partially broken but not the drain liquid.
    I started doubting if the problem might be with the 'break booster' that there have a hole and the air enters over that hole in the engine.

    I'm pretty sure that is normal for a Chrysler L-body car. The hood was flimsy enough to where some people who showcase their GLHS have modified it with dual prop rods to keep the hood level when open.

    Pretty much any engine mount I've come across on any car is diagnosed via just a visual inspection. No tears, no rips, not leaking oil if it is a fluid filled mount, it is good to go.

    I really do not understand what you're talking about here, what do you mean by this what i quote you. After all, what it has to do with my vibration problem.
