I sow some kind of oil that was leeking from the driver side engine mount. Is this becuase my engine mount is bad. Does engine mounts have oil? I don't see any oil coming from any other place but besides inside the black rubber piece thats attach to the engine mount

.................WOW

Btw, don't forget to change your blinker fluid every 2k, and to make sure you only fill it with V-TECH fluid at that.



LOL oil just spilled onto the mount man, it is likely just residual leakage from around the sides of the bushing.

there is no where else that the oil could have come from. its only coming from the engine mount. I have another problem, i use only vtec oil in my engine so this cannot get any leak from my b16

What kind of oil? What's going on here? You can get a leak in any engine.

Maybe show post a picture?

no theres not
I suggest you re-research. Driver's side mount is. Not only the OEM, but the Mugen mount is as well. When they dry and split, the fluid leaks. It's there for vibration damping.

Interetsing, this is deff new info to me, I have seen my drievrs side mount during the coil over install, and never noticeed anything, and it was already all cracked looking and dry. So maybe it has leaked a while back.

what?! what the heck is VTEC oil? and cheezthis is right, you can get a leak from any engine, whatever oil you use...

and this whole deal with engine mounts being fluid-filled is not a new thing...I've heard of/seen a good number cars that have engine mounts with fluid in them...my brother's '95 Maxima, for example.

I have changed ever single mount in my car and they all are rubber. My friends 04 accord on the other hand has fluid filled mounts. When the rubber was cracked it was solid broken pieces, were you on acid when you did this and saw fluid come out or something lol

I need some vtec oil, maybe it is the equivilent of having a vtec head. lol. No, seriously though, I never knew that some engine mounts had fuild in them. I learn something every day; sometimes multiple things.

LOL the vtec oil is just a joke for the other guy becuase he didn't believe me that there was some kind of oil in engine mounts. I know for sure that it was to be coming from the engine mount. I think its the engine mount becuase inside the rubber piece its broken and i can see some kind of oil form that is all over the place. I may be wrong but its the only reason to explan for my oil leak.

Anyone who has installed the Prothane engine inserts know that the upper driver side mount is liquid filled. To install the Prothane insert, you have to take the center out completely. When you separate the rubber from the outer metal ring, oil spills out.

So, to those who felt the need to be smart asses, perhaps you should reconsider the way you comment on things, especially since you may not know what you are talking about.
