I am a another member of the list that has been lurking (since June
95). Basically because most problems that have developed with my 1988
5000 CSTQ have been resolved using the archives, FAQ, or from reading
current list mail. Also my mechanical/technical knowledge is not to
the point where I can impart wisdom (heck I have a hard time making
those smiley faces (:.)). I do have changing the oil/filter down
pretty good and have messed with the climate control computer/control
I have questions about the motor mounts for this beast. Here is the
story: I brought my car to a mechanic (used him before to change the
timing belt) to have the fuel pump/filter replaced. I got him to
match Carlsen's quote for a new pump, $80.00 less then what he was
going to charge, he wasn't a happy camper. While driving me back to
work he told me that the slight vibration in the steering wheel was
probably caused by the motor mounts leaking/seeping. He said they
cost about $90.00 apiece (2), didn't say anything about labor. I have
never seen anything listed about motor mounts so I need some general
knowledge about them, symptoms etc.
