ENGINE VIBRATION CURED BY NEW MOTOR MOUNT
1994 Geo Prizm - 1.8L 4 Cylinder 250,000 mi,
Been told since about 2005 that one motor mount on my 1994 Geo Prism is cracked. Then another, I believe. Have had 3 different service shops (in different states) tell me about the crack(s). But it seems to run ok, so I save the money and keep running it. Had about 200000 miles when I was first told around 2005 or so. Have 257000 now, in Sept. 2014. Keep driving it, as it is a "backup" car mainly now, and used only for local slow speed driving.
