Well, I popped open my hood to check out my oil level this morning and lo and behold, the bolt that attaches the engine to the front motor mount came off. I tried using a jack to lift the engine so i can line up the bolt holes, but it lifted the entire car instead. Is there anywhere I can place the jack so it'll just move the block and not the whole car? Or will I need to use an engine hoist to move it?

Here's the pic of the mount:



Oh yeah, its a gen3 I4. Tx!

Use a 2x4 and a floor jack, gently lift the engine on the oil pan with baord in between the jack and oil pan just till the wieghts off the front motor mount, there is a locateing pin on the mount, use a screwdriver to line the bolt hole up with the mount then start the bolt by hand and lower the engine down and tighten the bolt. Good luck!
