Q: I need a motor mount car shaking pretty bad

asked by on

Would I be able to put the motor mount in by my self? Do you need a cherry picker? Is it something I really should have done by a mechanic?

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Depending on the motor you have you may have to support the motor and at the same time lower sub frame to replace the motor mounts. I would recommend getting a mechanic with the capability to replace your motor mounts. It may require a vehicle lift and a sub frame support lift.
