Hello everyone! Just swapped my i6 auto to a 289/t5 last week. The swap went smooth until yesterday. I've drive. Probably a total of 30-40 miles and all of a sudden steam starts shooting out if the hood so I pullover and the fan had cut the lower radiator hose. The motor is tilted down toward the passenger side! Have any of you ever heard of this?! The motor mounts look fine!

You will need to check all three mounts to see what has happened. The two engine mounts and the tranny mount. Something obviously has shifted due to a broken or lose mount.

I'm doing this on my iPhone and I don't think I can upload pics on here. I have pics of both motor mounts and how the motor looks looking straight at it. If anyone wants to see them pm your email and I can send it to you. Thanks in advance I can't figure this out!

You need to get underneath and check out the tranny mount as well. Try to take a picture of it and also.

Feel free to email me the pictures and I will post them for you.

Zooming in on the first picture, the right hand mount doesn't look right.

If you take a jack and lift the motor a bit, you should right away see some separation on that mount if it is bad.

Yes haha that'd be a good idea. Thank you all it seemed like such a dramatic tilt that it couldn't have been the motor mounts but it only makes sense

The left usually goes first. As for source, I'd order it from Rock Auto. They list the Anchor brand mounts for $3.39 each.
