I would venture to say no. The engine might bolt up to the transmission, but I do not think it will have the holes needed for the motor mounts.

SOURCE: how to change motor mounts on a 1996 nissan altima gxe

I would ask you why you want to change the mounts? They usually are not a problem unless the car was in a crash. Can you see that they are broken? If it is just engine shaking due to rough idle then the motor mounts will not solve this. You will need to find out what is causing the misfire to smooth it out.

Does it crank? If not you'll need to check your battery to see if it needs charging, check terminals, alternator or starter motor

Most likely the earth leads that connect the engine and the trans to the body are contaminated at the connection points. Take the straps off, check for corrosion, breaks, resistance and sand the body and engine trans bolt down points to bright metal. Bolt the straps back down tight, try again. These vehicles are known to have this problem, and it also results in screwed up and untermittent guage and sensor readouts. Electrickery requires just as good a return path to the battery as from it.....
otherwise, perhaps a failing starter motor...but I would bet it's the ground straps......

Will a 1997 3.3 Nissan Pathfinder engine be good to swap out a 2004 3.5 Nissan Pathfinder engine ??

being that you have a complete donor car the swap would be easy enough, one thing to keep in mind is the fuel management system and ECM will be different between the two. you may want to research the swap before you dive into it. it most likely will be cheaper to find a low millage motor at a wrecking yard that the same displacement and generation.

1997 Nissan Maxima w/330,000 miles, excellent condition. Had bobbing when turning but no popping like most axles do, pulled into Nissan place and bearings blew out of axle. They replaced and said may...

most shops will check the mounts for you for free, and replacing the axles will be a normal thing for the amount of miles you have on your car,, ( 2 times) they don't always pop or click when they go bad,, they just GOOOO ,, motor mounts are around 100 bucks,, search prices as they vary a bunch ,, I would suggest you take your car to a transmission shop, and ask them for a normal service,, that way you get the trans serviced, and mention to them about the motor mounts, they will check them for you ,, again shop prices,, I got my trans fluids and filter changed for 39 dollars just last week , and they told me I had a bad muffler mount I was unaware of,, when its up on the rack its so much easier to detect problems,, and this was a cheap way for me to go, and I still got the tarans serviced

Can i bolt the torque converter on a 89 fathfinder back up or do i have to put it in the tranny first

It is best done with the converter mounted on the trans. Then leaving the trans to engine bolts a little loose, turn the converter to align to the flywheel bolt locations, you may have to wiggle the trans up/down, side to side to Install the bolts/nuts, then finish tightening the trans to engine mounting bolts, then tighten the converter bolts.

Check your ball joints, and of course make sure you installed the bearings properly, and unseated or improperly installed bearing will give you those noises.

What do think is the problem when my 1997 pathfinder sways out of control when driving? i have replaced my front struts and back shocks, and tires are good. it feels like rearend is ready to fall out ....

I had the similar 'wobble of death' for these late 90's pathfinders. Just change all 8 bushings on REAR lower and upper control arms. That is main problem. Everything else has marginal impact like front control arms, wheel bearings, shocks, etc.
