Default 97 Camry Motor Mount

Recently, Meineke replaced my lower motor mount with an after-market
part (Precision). Since it got fixed, the car has been really
vibrating when idling or in stop and go traffic -- which it never did
before. I took it to another mechanic who said that he thinks the
problem is the motor mount -- the motor is raised up higher than
before. He says that he took the mount out and put the engine on a
jack and got no vibration. He said that he wouldn't hesitate to tell
me to replace it with a genuine part, but when he called the Toyota
dealer, they couldn't tell him if the part they were giving him would
be solid or hydraulic. Does anyone know if the Toyota front lower motor
mount is hydraulic or not? Or, should I just suck up the extra $225 and
get a Toyota motor mount any way.

Thanks.

The front one on my 94 was hydraulic. I bought aftermarket brand and
it was fine. I also replaced the rear and the top one.

The Toyota front engine mounting bracket is fluid filled.

Say, how do you know when it's time to have the lower and rear motor
mounts fixed? Will the engine start to really vibrate?

I already replaced the "dog bone" mount (the rubber was really torn up)
by myself on my '96. At the time, my biggest concern was that the
engine would collapse once I removed it. But it didn't, and it was
easy (and I probably saved myself $100 easy...)

What happens with my '96 manual, is the car jerks back and forth when
driving slowly in 1st gear. I believe its the mounts that contribute to
this.

I would get a new mount, check it to the old one, if its different go
back to mineke and complain till its fixed free. They are a large chain
and I dought will screw you if you complain to headquarters

Jason,
could be play in the half shafts - on my automatic noticed the
driveline shock disappeared when I replaced the axles.

That's possible I guess. There's those trunnions and God forbid, the
side-gears in the diff.

Thanx for the suggestion,..Jason
