Having problems with your 1998 Mercury Sable ?

Unibody rusted out

\015 The unibody where the rear engine mount is suppose to be mounted is completely gone. Can this car be saved? Is there a patch panel available? The motor is only supported by a single bolt. Unsafe to drive.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 30-11-2020

Hi, Wow is this a tough call! I assume it rusted away, but a 98? Was this thing underwater or parked on a salt *****?
Being totally realistic, if the motor mounts are that bad what other damage is there? To answer your question, the mounts are welded onto the frame and yes it is possible to have new ones welded on, but it would be a big job and like I said in the first place , you really should thoroughly have it gone over to determine if and what else is going to go next. This could be a money pit. You may do better if this thing runs to sell it for parts. I hate answering these questions as nobody likes this kind of news. Best of luck to you!
Ouch, IF you ask the DOT they will tell you it is unsafe and to try and find someone to do work on it will be VERY hard to do since the danger involved
