The mounting bolts for my engine cradle broke off. The part of the subframe that it bolts to, no longer has the threaded hole for me to put a new bolt in. Is there a way to replace the threaded part?

You probably looking at some Frame repair. Have your mechanic or a body shop take a look at it. Some welding might be required. Is it rusty under there?

Drill the frame hole slightly larger and retap the hole at the next thread size up. Or, drill all the way through and use a long high strength bolt and nut.
