Hi Guys,

I've been told that engine mounts in my ELXR6 will probably need replacing (car has done 217k). I have the round hydraulic type mounts, as apposed to the square solid rubber mounts.

I've had a look and they don't appear to be perished both look exactly the same, I don't feel any extra vibration when at idle, no engine slap when changing gear etc. I took a photo of the mount that is under the intake manifold, I notice both have a rubber ring on the bottom that is detached and spins freely is this normal?

Can anyone else post a pic of a new mount from EL that I can compare or even on car?

Adjust your hand brake so it works adequately. Is your vibration coming when driving or just sitting there idling, or in neutral slowly revving?

When I come to a stop at traffic lights the exhaust vibrates on the body , it's only a slight vibration . I had the exhaust modified to clear the body but still rattles the slightest bit .
When I give it a rev it goes away

The Photo that you have posted up show a good Mount. When they go they collapse and sink down and rest metal on metal. Passenger side is usually ok, what doe the drivers side look like. This is the side that usually gives out due the heat from the exhaust.

I got new mounts in my EF back in August 2009

These were repo ones not Ford ones - they do the job

Thanks for the post matey, however they're the square solid rubber angle mounts, I have the round hydraulic style which are straight up and down. mind you by the looks of that all I would need is a bracket to make those angles fit

If you still can't see them then save the pic to your computer and make the pic brighter

The passenger side one is always good, check the driver's side one too see if it's metal on metal or resting on that rubber seperation pad. I paid about $120 for these square type ones as mentioned above, which were fitted too lates series 2 Hybrid 98 model EL Falcons. These can handle the heat from pacemaker extractors..
Kelpro part # (mount) MT8370, (bracket) MTB8370
