It will just run rough.

I just replaced mine today and it is seriously a huge difference. No exaggeration, I can't tell it's running when idling just by feeling.

Um, my buddy who works at Saturn has ACTUALLY seen it damage a timing cover before.

If you're a car begging for your life, wouldn't you want someone to add fluids?

That's plausible. Can't say I've seen it but, I don't see hundreds of different Saturns every year. A shaking engine is pretty tough on suspension components as well.

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

Aside from the car shaking violently at idle...it will run alot smoother after you replace it!

All you need is a jack, a block of wood, a socket wrench and you are good to go....5 bolts and you are done.

If you can fit your fingers through the upper motor mount; it's time to replace.

Buy from the dealer for roughly $50-$70.

Don't go aftermarket as they will have to be replaced sooner (wearing out quicker)

Hi,

2 quick questions:

- Is this the upper mount only?

- If they sell it at saturnparts.net what is the part number?

Default Powertrain Mounting System

>D 16 TR, 95 SL 2 <

With the year/model, and obvious mileage due to age, I strongly suggest that you not only change the Upper Engine Mount, but also, the Lower Transmission Mount. They both, equally, support the engine and transmission as a unit.


The entire Saturn "Powertrain Mounting System" is called "Torque Axis Mount System" [TAMS]

The engine and transmission mounts, support the >weight< of the powertrain,

while the engine strut and transmission strut, control the >torque< motion.

...
> 95 SL 2 = 653,369 Miles 40.4 MPG, as of 5/20/11. My manual Radiator Fan Switch, courtesy of Wolfman's patient installation guidance, continues to be.......invaluable < The car was retired

Thumbs Up Re: Powertrain Mounting System

Mine is SW2, and you're right, it has over 223K. You provided a very valuable info, thank you very much.
