Question about 1990 Jeep Cherokee Limited

1 Answer

Left rear wheel is inset but the right rear wheel sticks out the side

Jeep has never been in a accident, all wheels are the same, but looking from the back of the jeep, the left rear wheel is flush with the side while the right side protrudes outwards an inch, drives me crazy. Can I use a wheel spacer on the left side so the vehicle looks even?

Have your U-bolts that hold the rear axle checked to see if they have worked themselves loose or stretched.

The vehicle will suddenly jerk to the left at acceleration, and when you lift your foot from the accelerator it tugs to the right. Probable cause?


could be a differential problem, or half shaft broken where power is only going ot one wheel. when the car accelerates the wheel with power can cause the vehicle to jerk. could also be a wheel problem. ensure the tyres are inflated correctly. is the steering wheel straight or turned to one side when driving in a straight line. if turned there may be damage to the steering system. did the symptom start after another person has driven the vehicle? or after an accident or driving into a curb or off road? all these may be factors to the problem. if not the case try rotating the wheels front left to rear right and front right to rear left to see if the problem disapears. if persists seek professional to test drive the vehicle and give an appraisal to the cause.

I hope this was helpful.

I replace all new rotors and new shoes and 2 months later why is the abs on when i was driving all the time now i smell smoke right rear side and all three look brand new not the right side


You mostlikely have a caliper or float pins on the caliper bracket sticking. It could be a problem with the hose. Raise the wheel and have someone apply the brakes, they should lock the wheel and release when the brake pedal is released. If it does not release with the pedal then crack open the bleeder to that wheel, if they release then replace the hose. If they are still tight then remove the caliper and inspect the floating pins, if they are free then replace the caliper. After you get the wheel working properly like the other three if you still have the ABS light coming on you will need to have the codes checked to see why the light is on.

Why would the right rear running light(tail light) constantly burn out. 4 new bulbs in last 4 months, 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. No problems with left tail light. Automatic, Air, 4 wheel drive, 200300...


I have a 2002 JGC as well and its the driver side one with mine. I changed the bulb this last time and used bulb lube to cover all the metal. It worked for a mile then went out again but didnt burn out this time. I checked the contacts on the base and noticed there was some rust, scraped off with blade and used more bulb lube on those contacts too, working for now.

Bleeding brake system how?


BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM

Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

2001 and 2002 jeep grand cherokee. while making hard left hand turn experience rumbling sound doesnt happen when driving straight or right turns. Cant decide if sound is from front or rear area


Try checking the bearing in the left wheel if the rumbling is on the left side. Sometimes bearings can be worn down and sometimes may even twist or bend.

1991 jeep cherokee jerks while in 4x4 on turns..


The part time switch in the gearbox is sticking in the on position locking the 4x4 on. It feels and looks really bad because the front wheels are trying to pull the car left or right, while the rear axle is pushing you forward. This is at it's worst when in full lock on road or hard surfaces. This is why 4x4 is for off road only.
