    All,

    this is me again, the German with the vibes on the '90 K5 4x4.

    Anyone can say how the engine has to sit in the engine compartment ? We checked yesterday with a "water-level".
    Mine tends to the passengers side, it is lower on the right than on the left -drivers- side. Couldthat be a worn motor mount, or both sides after 12 years ??

    Any recommondations on changing the motor mounts ??

    Thank you, have a nice sunday.

    Regards Alex

    Have someone sit in the truck (that you trust ;->), apply the brake put it in drive and rev up the motor a little at a time, do the same in reverse. If the motor jumps one way more than the other than you have a worn out mount, mine was broke and I had problems busting exhaust manifolds on the passengers side (drivers side mount was broke). When we done this I could see the motor on the drivers side jump up like 2 inches (I think in reverse) from inside the truck with the hood open. I had problems getting the right mounts from the auto parts store, got the right side when I needed the left took it back got the other and got one that the rubber part of the mount on the inside was installed upside down and I went to another auto parts store with the orginal in hand and finally got the right part! Good luck, the install is not that hard in you have 3 or 4 hands and good jack.
