My Jeep has broken engine bolts.

If you are refering to the bolts that mount the engine to the frame, replace the motor mounts. Any parts store can help you. Otherwise, replace broken the bolts.

The best thing to do is to cut the heads off the bolts if they are still there, and then to take a stud extractor to the remaining stud. Depending on where the bolt is inside of the engine, or on the engine mount, you must re-order replacement bolts from your Jeep dealership

Use an engine hoist to raise the engine a bit. Remove the old bolts. I would recomend using facory bolts to replace the broken ones.

First drill out the bolt with a reverse drill bit (available from SnapOn Tools) and a lot of times it will just come out as it is drilled. If that doesn't remove it, you will then need an easyout tool to remove the bolt.
