I don't have my Chilton's handy at the moment either, but I do know it's in there. Check in the engine removal section. You obviously have to remove the lower engine mount in order to remove the engine, so the torque specs are probably at the front of that section (2B).

It is not nearly as hard as the transmission lower mount. I think, though, if you are replacing the lower engine mount, you might also want to look at the upper and lower transmission mounts. They might be bad too.

thanks for the help... ive replaced the top one and the other one donest look all that bad.. i think the passanger one has had a short life do to a oil leak which has kept the mount cover in oil befor i bought the car, soi think the oil destroyed the mount.

Could also be from sloppy oil changes instead of an oil leak. The oil filter isn't too far from the mount either.

that is also most likly true.. does the engine need to be proped up like when removing the top engine mount?
