Okay, I tried, and failed. Even with the help of a younger man (my son) I was not able to figure out a way to access the upper nuts on the motor mounts of this 3.8 Sable Wagon. I gave up, and took it to Pep Boys, who did the job for $165. (I supplied the mounts) It's amazing how nice and smooth the old buggy drives now! I step on the go-pedal, and the car GOES! Smoothly! It doesn't jump around first. When I shift into Reverse, it just backs up! The motor doesn't bounce off the hood any more...
I like the car again! :)

That's cool. We just took the Windstar in last month to get the mounts replaced and the difference was amazing. We didn't even know the mounts were broken (there's a lot of clearance between the engine and the hood and the I figured it was slow was because it was a used minivan) until a mechanic told me about it when I took it in for an alignment. Before, the van was a dog on take-off and shifting, but after, I could roast the tires by putting the pedal to the metal. :coolgleam:

Al...roasting the tires on the minivan :rolleyes2:

Congrats Gene...amazing what those mounts do. Can you convince my granddad to replace them in his 89 LeSabre?
