Default Re: Overheating problem solved!!!

man we all got the same problems?

I know my fan currently only runs in one speed.
I have not had the money to fix it but I also have not had any over heating problems.

though lately I have been getting ticked off that the a/c comes on with the defrost position weather I turn the a/c or the fan on.
when not on the freeway after a while the a/c causes the engine to stumble or have a rough idle at times. during those times if I was actually using the a/c for cooling warm or luke warm air would blow instead of cold.

While on the freeway or at speeds above 40mph there is no problems and a/c operates normally.

as of late I have been tempted to just tear the fan apart and do the brushes replacement (since its cheaper but more labor intensive), but I'm a tad hesitant to do that right now.
how do you remove the old brushes? how do you install the new brushes?
do I need to soder either of these? or do they have a small screw that attaches the wire?

I know my lower torque strut?!?! (what everyone calls an engine mount) is severely cracked. and I have ahd wheel hop because of it. but that was when it was missing a bolt! well the bolt was broken and not screwed in so it was like missing a bolt.
I installed a new bolt but at that time noticed the cracks. I'm sure with the lower one so worn the upper one is worn as well and I;d like to replace both at the sametime.
I too have looked into soild or urethean mounts. and I don't know if I want to go that extreme with it this is my daily driver not a race car after all.
So I have been thinking about the urethean inserts as well. I also would like to get the kit of stronger bolts that the place that has the inserts also sells.

I have also been curious about what other mounts are on this engine tranny combo? transmission has got to have a mount of two....and I would imagine there's got to be a central mount on the egnine like nearly all fwd motors I've seen. but what its called escapes me and apparently the torque struts are called engine mounts in teh computer at kragen.
The vehicle has now 113k miles. if I'm going to replace the torque struts I'd like to replace all the other engine/tranny mounts at the sametime and get it all done and not worry about it.
