My 05 just turned 41,000 miles. Good car. Service leaves a lot to be desired. Now needs it's second Motor Mount. And yes, I thought at first I had a tranny leak. Red oil in the driveway. Now they tell me, after I had to really question them, my base warranty doesn't cover this. Good car, service not so!!

I have an 05 with 33K miles. Was just informed that it will cost me $714 to fix both the front and rear motor mounts. How can this be?

Just replaced the rear motor mount in my 04 Pacifica. I had a clunking noise every time I took off from a dead stop. I went to two dealers, one told me it was a gasket in the axles and the other told me it was the control arm bushing. I put it up on some jack stands and found the noise myself. The motor came when you stepped on the gas and came back down and clunked on the rear motor mount. It cost $68.00 for the mount and took about 2 hours to change. No more clunk.

The clunk is back! I had no noise for 2 weeks and now I'm hearing the same thing.( not as bad) I think I'm going to have to replace the front motor mount also.

I brought my 04 Pacifica in for a "Clunk" noise too and my motor mount is also broken. It only has 37K. The estimate is $256.00 for teh rear mount. The technician said this must be a problem with Pacifica's because the local dealer had the mount in stock.

How easy is it to replace the front and rear mounts? Are there any installation instructions that you can refer me to.

Just bought my '04 Pacifica not even three months ago with under 50,00 miles on it. The front motor mounts are broke. Suppose to be a pre-owned certified vehicle. Now they are telling me that they wont help me pay for it.

I recently started having problems with the ABS light coming on intermitently on my 2005 Pacifica. It finally came on and wouldn't turn off, so we took it in to the dealer. To my surprise, not only did we have a bad ABS sensor, but the struts were bad, the strut mounts were bad. We were also informed that we had to cracked motor mounts. Now it is going to cost us almost $800, and that's with our warranty covering some it. The dealer we took it to told us that this is a common problem with Pacifica's. We wrote to Chrysler directly, and while they were apologetic, refused to do anything. I will never buy another Chrysler again. Who knows what else is going to happen, and how much it will end up costing us on a 3 yr old car.

I began noticing a clunk sound and sensation when I took off from a stop and thought it was my transmission but after taking it to an Amaco shop they told me immediately after driving it and then lifting the hood and visually inspecting it that it the Engine Mounts were shot. The front mounts cost $290.00 and you can only find them through a Chrysler Dealership because I tried Auto Zone etc. and they only have after market part numbers, and the rear mounts cost $260.00 and the tech said it would take 1 to 1.5 hours for the front mounts which equals another $150.00 bucks and of course no warranty coverage. After reading all the other comments in this forum it certainly seems that there should have been a recall or at least free replacements for these failures! What a crock!

I am in the process of replacing both mounts on my 04. The rear was completely separated and the front was almost there. I didnt know they had fluid in them until I pulled the front out and thought I had snapped a tranny line or something.I got the parts for a total of $141 and change (thanks to my brother that works at a dealership for getting me a wholesale price) and the labor costs me nothing as I always do the work myself. I will be replacing the rear when my wife gets home tonight. I think there should have been a recall issued on this problem. It happens too frequently.

Where did you get that price from? That is outrageous.Is it possible that they gave you the price with everything including the mount brackets? It is only the insulators that are going bad. Street price for both isnt even that high.

My 2007 Pacifica needs all the mounts replaced. 20,000 miles somethings wrong. I thought it was the transmission also. I think this sounds like something that should be a "RECALL".

You folks who were able to replace your motor mounts are LUCKY - I've been waiting almost a month - having been told by dealers that some 500 are on backorder with an EDD of February 2009. At least you are all able to drive your Pacificas. Now I'm worried that the part may never become available because parts suppliers are starting to only do a COD business with Chrysler. If anyone can locate a front motor mount for a 2004 Pacifica, I would be grateful.

Ok everyone, Chrysler is looking for another manufacturer to produce these parts and many others. 1300 on back order nationwide. Estimated time of delivery her in the west coast (Arizona & California) is Spring of next year!!!
They use fabricators around the world. I found similar OEM or better quality parts from DEA PRODUCTS in New York. Call them direct and you will have to provide a "wholesale" or "re-sellers" ID or tax number. Or order them from one of their distributors. www dot motor mounts dot net.
I purchased all 4 motor mounts for 185.00 dollars wholesale. Once they arrive i am using a dealers certified tech (buddy) to replace them here at my home. He says 2 hours tops. google DEA PRODUCTS or google motor mounts dot com
