      @jsblanch I was going to wait till it got warmer out to replace the engine mounts as well. Did you just support the engine with a floorjack while replacing the mount, and did you have to lift the car to get under it, or did you do the work from the top?
      I jacked the front end up with a floor jack and used stands. I would have preferred to use ramps, but the ramps I have are way too steep for the Dart. They just barely work with my Grand Caravan! The rear mount doesn't need the engine to be supported, it's the two actual engine supporting mounts on either side that require support to change. Actually, the two hardest parts of the process were getting the new mount into the slot (it was a very tight fit) and getting the 3 e-torx bolts lined up with the threaded holes in the engine through the plate. The engine's natural tendency is apparently to roll forward, and I had to pull down on it with my left hand to roll it back into alignment.
      @alpinegreenneon - I did take some pics of the oil leaks as well as I could before cleaning the fluid off, and I will try to post them later. I could also take a pic of the OEM mount, but it looks like the other pics I've seen. It's not damaged, it's just not very impressive.

      @jsblanch

      Thanks for the feedback!

      I was going to start with the 2 side mounts, as they looked relatively easy. I couldn't for the life of me, find any info on the rear mount, so I really appreciate your response! I will probably do the same, and use jack stands. The last car ramps I had were useless as well, haven't had any for a while.

      Thanks again!

      What did you do to your Dart today?

      Put the summer tires/wheels back on. I found out why my aftermarket wheels were shaking at high speeds. The tire shop put on the wrong hub centric rings. The one they put on were 72-66.1. I ordered aluminum replacement ones to match the proper spec for the dart.

      Examined my rear brakes to see why my ebrake isnít working. The driverís rear wasnít holding when I replaced the brakes in August because the ebrake spring seized. The passenger side is now seized as well. Looks like Iíll need a pair of rear calipers

      Edit:
      I figured Iíd also post a photo of my brakemotive rotors. I installed them middle of August and this is how they look after 8 months. Itís just surface rust but itís a lot worse than I expected considering itís supposed to be coated.

      When I installed them in August


      How they look now (8 months later)


      How the stock rotors looked when I removed them in August (4 years old)

      Doesn't look much different than regular ones to me, but I'm not a mechanic either.
