2.5 motor mounts

I have a 98 2.5 xj and the motor mounts are welded on. It looks factory,they look nothing like the ones on my. 99 4.0 , has anyone else run into this problem? I could not find any comments on this using the search on naxja.

You're talking about the mount with the rubber that bolts to the body, right? I'm pretty sure they're not welded from the factory. The pictures on RockAuto, they look pretty similar to the 99 4.0 ones. You need to undo the nut from underneath. Previous owner have an issue and just weld them on?

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

No,they are welded on and it is a factory job, they donot look anything like the ones rockauto sells
to fir a 98 ,2.5,5 speed. The transmission mount is of the same design as the motor mounts and rock auto does not offer it either. Somebody else on naxja should on a 98/2.5/5 speed/xj with a similar setup and run into this,

It may look like it was professionally welded, but the factory mounts bolt on!

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

I do not want to start an argument but has anyone of you actually looked at a 98/2.5/4cyl/5 speed xj? This one uses a grand Cherokee style mount, and the transmission mount is the same design, rockauto does not list this mount for the 98, xj ,2.5,5 speed.

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

Both the 97 and 99 FSMs show the same drawing for the 2.5l engine.

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

It is a 98, I can not explain it ,what is on the xj is nothing like these pictures,why would I make this up? But the welded motor mounts and the "unusual transmission mounts"look very factory. I am sorry but I don"t have a way to furnish pictures,just hoping some one dealt with this before.

I'm just as curious as you, not sure why it doesn't look like what the FSM says it should.

JeepDriver said "Others have run into this problem.", maybe he can shed some light on this?

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

You don't own a camera?


Is it round?

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

Maybe Jeep Driver can help,as for the FSM the pictures they are for 97 and 99 models not the 98s. Don't understand Jeep Drivers last post.

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

Last guy that had this problem found out that some of the export models used mounts similar or the same as the diesel mounts.

Is the mount more round in shape?

Re: 2.5 motor mounts

I looked around...................


You need a camera and you need to take a pic of your mounts.

Don't know how anyone can help you otherwise.
