2011 Kia Soul, automatic, 108K miles
Last March I acquired a used Spectra 191,000 miles.While interviewing the previous owner, I found he had not done any major maintenance in the two years he owned the car! It seemed to be running well and his commute was about 35 miles every day. I bought the car and scheduled a timing belt replacement. The mechanic replaced the timing belt and water pump, and said the motor mounts were broken and should be replaced. I questioned him for a while and concluded the motor mounts would have to wait as I did not have the funding for them at the time. So my engine vibrates badly at idle, but smooths out at speed. My problem is, I can only eyeball three of the four mounts. Places like Rock-Auto have a large number of possible mounts. Can anyone point out the exact mounts I will need? A video showing the replacement procedure would be even more helpful.
