Hi, I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing or maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20-plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from The right parts, installed correctly that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we'll be showing you how to replace the lower engine mount, or engine isolator, on this 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, same as any '95 to '05 Sunfire or Cavalier. The only tools you'll need are some penetrating oil, a pair of pliers or a screwdriver, and a 15 mm wrench or socket and ratchet.

We're going to start underneath the front end here. This is your passenger front tire, and here's the mount, right here. That's called a dog-bone mount because it's kind of the shape of a dog bone. Next what you're going to do is use a little penetrating oil, trying to make our job as easy as possible.

Now looking at it from the tire, the tire being over here, there's a little pin right here that you'll want to reach up with some needle-nosed pliers or maybe a screwdriver, and you want to get that pin or get the pin out so we put it back together so you can pull the wheel well away there. Both these bolts, one here, and then this one here, both 15 mm bolts, take my 15 mm wrench. You don't need to worry about the engine falling down or anything. It's not going to happen. This is a mount, but it's a stabilizer mount. One bolt out. See, it's already pretty loose. There it is out. You can see, this has a little slot in it, so it should have some play back and forth. It's meant to be an isolator, an engine vibrator isolator. It's not meant to stop the engine, but you can see there's some cracking on that rubber and stuff, so it's time to be replaced.

Here's the original. Here's the new one from 1A Auto. You can see, this one is worn pretty good because this one is actually down a little further. The 1A Auto one's going to go right up in there. It's just going to be nice and new and probably hold the engine a little steadier and not let it make any clunking noises.

You put it back up in. The small side goes into the frame, kind of work it in there. Start the bolt in. Then lift the other side up in. Probably it's going to take a little bit of push I got push this the other way then it goes in pretty well. Then start them it actually is just a little I got to push the end in just a little bit get it started. Get one end snug. Should be probably about 50-60 foot pounds, which is this take your wrench there you go.
