I have an '01 Ody, 85k. Saturday I noticed some oily residue around the passenger side motor mount. The residue is draining towards the front and rear of the engine compartment. Additionally, it is 'splattering' towards the rear. I was concerned that it is from my power steering line as that runs through the vicinity but that line is completly dry. Also, once I park the car the residue will dry within an hour or two, so it is not oil.
I swung by the dealer and they 'believe' that it is the motor mount. I tend to agree with them except for one piece of conflicting information that has me guessing.
The dealer says that this particular motor mount (passenger side front, by the timing belt) is not fluid filled. But then the parts guy says it might be fluid filled. Nobody seems to know for sure. They just want to replace it and see if the problem goes away, for a fee of course.
Does anybody know if that mount contains fluid or not. I know that switching out the mount will not do any harm at 85k miles but I don't want to spend too much money/time chasing phantom problems.
