Baddddd and i am 100 m away

Had a motor mount break and cause a puncture in my oil filter and I'm leaking oil like a stuck pig gotta try to figure out how to fix it to get home. There is a napa here so I am gonna run up there. Any ideas?

This is an easy one,
New oil filter, some oil and a chain/cable around the engine mount.

Are you anywhere near Steubenville, Ohio?

I am about 40 miles west of Pittsburgh, PA.

The unbelievable we can do immediately . . . the impossible just takes a little longer.

With a bottle jack and some blocks of wood, you can lift the engine and get a new mount in there I believe...it's been a while since I had an I-6 motor in mine. You're lucky that the fan didn't eat the radiator, too; that usually happens.

Might be a dumb question, but what is the white thing on the front of your jeep?

Looks like a rod holder (fishing).

In my 1972 Jeep brochure it shows a yellow CJ5 with two fishing rod holders
on the chrome front bumper. I have the AMC Jeep dealer brochures from 72
through 79.

Well, it's a lead pipe cinch you are going to find both engine mounts, and the transmission mounts are shot.

When you install those mounts, make sure the 'Torque Tab' goes on in the correct place and this *Shouldn't* happen again.

I purchased a cable bycycle lock and wrapped it around the engine/frame brackets one time to keep a muscle car working the weekend and get it back home. Worked, but wasn't pretty.

The ONLY way you could have punched a hole in the oil filter was for the ENTIRE ENGINE & TRANSMISSION to be rotating WAY OVER.

So replace BOTH SIDES, adding a cable to the drivers side wouldn't be a bad idea,
And CHANGE THOSE TRANS/TRANSFER mounts!

Used a ratchet strap on mine about a year ago. Went through about 4-5 times for added strength? Worked pretty good! Still holding well! JK, I replaced it!
