if someone told you there is a fault stored for an engine mount (which does not set a check engine light) it means the electrical dampening characteristics of the motor mount is probably not working. the mounts are liquid filled and recieve power at idle to soften the feel of idle. as long as the mount is not leaking or seperated (eng jumps on hard accel) and you can live with the minor difference in idle feel, no work is needed.
