Now that I got both motor mounts replaced, The clunking is stillthere

  1. Hi all,

    going back to this thread:

    I now have both the upper motor mount and the transmission (lower)
    mount replaced.
    It's still clunking. I read somewhere that maybe it could also be the
    dome bolts.

    I tried to find dome bolts, but could not find that kind of part.
    Could it also be
    called something else?

    The problem could not be the bolts on the upper motor mount, because
    that mount
    did not come with any bolts, so the mechanic had to sue whatever bolts
    the car
    already had.

    I had the upper motor mount replaced first, and it held for about 3
    weeks, but
    that was it.

    So if anybody knows what else these dome bolts could be called, maybe
    I can
    buy them somewhere.

    when my satur had badd motor mounts it was more of a buzz sound with
    the engine running and was louder when it was cool out. The buzz was
    pretty much constant.
    When I had a clunking sound, either driving down the road or going
    over bumps it turned out to be the front upper strut mounts. All went
    away once I changed the struts and mounts. If you do your own struts
    and mounts get the upper mounts that are more expensive and
    warranteed. I bought the cheap mounts nce just to replace them within
    6 months which is a real pitat being that you need to remove the strut
    and spring to replace them. My son messed up his new upper mounts by
    driving through real loose sand and it got up in the bearings.

    like brakes you should always replace both sides. Did you try pushing
    te car up and down to simulate the sound?
