Right side (next to firewall) motor mounts both transmission and engine front. How do I get to the 2 top bolts to remove the nuts. I am unable to feel the 2nd one or see it (transmission mount)? Pictures would be a great help.

Also where is the ALDL connector? I have an Actron III Code Scanner.
Do you
have the same problem?

May have to remove theexhaust pipe-to-exhaust manifold bolts and separate the exhaust pipe to access the motor mount better..

Diagnostic ALDL connector will be found under the left side of the dash.

Those drawings don't look anything like my 90 Olds engine.

It has 2 front mounts and 2 rear (transmission) mounts

I have included pictures of those 2 mounts.
I will later take a picture of what may be my Olds ALDL connector Tomorrow and send it for your identification.

Remove the air intake duct. Remove the throttle cable and bracket from the throttle body.Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove exhaust. Then remove the mounts.
