I have a 1990 Lumina that has had a few problems. One of which the engine
cradle bolts rusted off and allowed the engine to fall to the ground and
un-couple the steering while driving down the highway. NHTSB had a recall
on this and it was supposed to have been fixed by a Quad City Chevy dealer a
couple years before we owned it. Turns out they were paid for the recall
work but did not perform it. No one was hurt and damage was paid for by GM
so i guess they got away with this one....anyway now the front upper motor
mounts appear to be oblonged and need replaced. (probably from the engine
falling to the ground and haning on them!) I have also noticed that the car
seems to wander quite a bit as if there is a low tire or something. Could
it be that the wore out motor mounts are the problem? Does this allow the
front end to "slop" around?
thanks for any info....
