    Re: 97 Deville overheating question

    I have tried and tried to post the picture of it but this tablet won't let me do it. There are two "supports?" On the front of the engine. One on the drivers side and one on the passenger side. They are basically two arms with bushings on ether side and connect to the front rail the radiator sets against. And then the both connect to black brackets on the engine. All of the 90's gm v6 sedans with the 3100 have them too. But anyways the black bracket that it connects to on the drivers side has a little metal coolant port coming out of it that a hose connects to (the port I cleaned the clog out of). This hose runs to the bottom throttle body coolant port. And the top throttle body coolant port is what the purge line connects to. That's about the best way I know to describe it.

    ----------

    I'm guessing its my cars version of the hollow bolt. It looks a little different from the picture above.

    Those supports are called torque struts, often referred to as dog bones.

    Those are not motor mounts. They are torque struts aka "dog bones".

    EDIT:
    Oops MC beat me to it and almost verbatim.

    ....... and when the rubber cookies in the dog bones stretch and deteriorate, look in www.gmpartsgiant.com or call Chris in parts at Rippy Cadillac over there >>>>
