Don’t Ignore This Noise in Your Car


rev your engines today I’m gonna show you how to fix a
car that clunks when you started up and also when you’re taking a hard corner
know when you get a car the clunks when you start it and then also does it when you corner hard it’s often a bad motor mount because the motor mounts
keep the motor vibrations from being felt while you’re driving the car one
part bolts onto the motor and the other part bolts on to the frame of the car so
it can’t be all metal if it was all metal the sympathetic vibrations of the
engine would be felt in the whole car and it would be worried you’d be shaking the original cars you like that they really shock so they have metal and then it’s
rubber insulation in the middle and the rubber takes the vibration out but as
they age the rubber can rot and crack and then ya get clogged in now you might
think clunking who cares doesn’t mean anything but what’s clogging cuz all
engine transmission suddenly is going up and down it’ll make your drive shafts
ride weird it can snap them off if it’s really bad it’s a good idea to fix them
and to check what you want bad it’s a pretty simple test go see the jack then
put it right here on the engine transmission assembly right here and
start jacking it up in this case we’re watching the front mount here as we see
as we jack it up it starts to separate we go up the top here this gap is
starting to get bigger because the rubbers ripped and this is picking it up
in the air now in this case you can see there’s grease all over the place to
power steering pumps leaking and that’s gonna help ruin the motor mount so
that’s gonna be need to be replaced eventually customer doesn’t do that
right now they want this fixed right away he’s gonna order a brand new power
steering pump because they cost too much locally and the rebuilt one to jump so
he’s gonna order new one I’m gonna put it on for him, gasoline coolant especially power steering fluid it can eat the rubber up and then the motor mounts go bad no as
far as motor mounts go these ones are pretty easy to get to because they’re
right on the top here they’re not hidden down on the back like some that
can take our first we’ll move the power steering pump runs of are out of the way
which in this case is pretty easy just give this long extension stick
a 10mm on there’s two little 10 millimeter
bolts one here I’ll use a giant extension here makes it easier to break
them loose there’s one here and there’s another one on the other side break it
loose with your hands now you can see it’s wiggling and we can get this out of
the way so we can get to the bolts then remove this bolt that bolt that bolt
over there and the bolt on the top and in this case they’re all fourteen
millimeter bolts so that’s pretty handy there comes number two children oh
that’s how the big extension comes in handy huh makes it easier to get them
off now unfortunately I still can’t pull it out cuz when we look at the new motor
mount there’s awesome two giant bolts with nuts we’re gonna
have to jack it up in here and take the tire off to get to that they should put
the nuts on the top made it an easier job so I know you got to take the tire
off too so I come to tire cars per usual there’s
more crap in a way so again I take these bolts off get this plastic shield off then
get that out of the way we don’t take the whole thing off how do you got
to do is get enough room so we can get a socket up here it wouldn’t you know
when you look at the bottom of them here they’re real long so you gotta have a
deep socket fourteen millimeter for those because they’re deep and they need
to get it from the bottom but it has to be deep a shallow one would reach the
whole way up as you can see the extension goes way up inside and then if
you twist them there’s number one we look way up inside there you can see
it’s all greasy but on that greasy bar the ones gone I know we have to get the
other there’s no we can pick it up from the top a little wiggling and here it comes
a tight fit and you can see this is all broken inside see all the rubbers broken
here’s the new one notice it’s not broken we wear that back in this little
hole gravity helps man falls down in place as we can see here the mount now
doesn’t reach the hole because the motor came down so we’re gonna Jack the motor up again we just need to jacket out for tiny bit
size you can see now those mounting holes that end and we can bolt them all
on dad put the stupid plastic shield back on keeps water from splashing on
the fan belt really I put the tire back on they put the
power steering pump a reservoir back in its place just bolts on two bolts hand
tighten is fine here all it is is a reservoir oh way let down a jock slowly
so we don’t break it in now when we start at the end you won’t bump the next time your motor bumps when you started clunking on your corner suspect a broken motor mount that you can change yourself it’s a little bit of elbow grease a little bit of dirty hands if
you’re not wearing gloves so if you never want to miss another one of my new carrepair videos, remember to ring that bell
