Installed new timing componets (all) along with front eng. mount. Customer says now has a vibe @ idle but runs great! Looked at other mounts look ok. It does vibrate very little but cant say it was not there before the work. In gear holding brk. with throttle engine doesn't move in drive or rev. like another mount is bad. 377,000 mi. In drive it is better than rev. I want to blame a mtr. mount but just don't see it. Any ideas.

Question Answered: why i have to get new front pads every 6 months
October 23, 2016, 01:55 PM
Here are a few reasons why! .. Driving habits (using both feet) .. Road conditions (hilly terrain) .. Stop and go traffic (frequent city commuting) .. Poor quality brake pads (discount parts store purchase) .. Rear brakes not working properly and over-loading front brakes (rear brake repair required) .. Residual pressure on brake pads due to hydraulic system contamination or mechanical failure (visual inspection & hands-on testing required) .. Improper installation procedure (suggest professional installation)....

DO NOT have the transmission FLUSHED!! .. Remove the transmission fluid dipstick and read what it says on the top! .. It says the same thing in the owners manual - which can also 'accurately' answer these questions you've posted first hand. Index is in back of book.
