2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Question: I feel motor vibration in the car, is this motor mounts?

its possible your mounts, seek help to diagnose, check your tires, check alignment also

While driving? Sitting still trans. in gear or in park? When brakes are applied? All of the time?
Does the whole Jeep vibrate, do passengers feel it too? What are the conditions exactly?
Then we can be more helpful.

the exh system on these cars is set up to have very little clearance under car and a bad mount will cause vibration from motor or esxh hitting seek diag

Good answer! That is exactly what i was getting at asking about vibe. all over the jeep.
Trans. mounts sag and i think the hanger is hooked to that mount and letting pipe hit cross member.

That is all we can do. Hard to fix them on a key board and screen! I would love to get my hands on some
of these cars and i am sure all of us could do some "magic"! Or some damage.

I second that! But you know sometimes when you know darn well you have given advice that HAD to fix a problem
and never get a response, makes it seem sorta pointless. Even a broken clock is right twice a day!
Just from the years of experience we get it right a bunch of the time. Problem is folks do not understand
what the hell we are talking about most of the time. Sorry for the rant, the wife has left for work and i didn't
have anybody else to fuss with. Have a good day,maybe we can do some magic on at least one today!
