Normaly you wouldn't drive all the time in 4 wheel drive in less it is mad that way but the reason it jearks when turning sharp is because the front axle is tring to grip but the tire just bends and slips commen problem

Unit bearing is bad on one side or another. You have to raise the front of the vehicle, remove the wheels, calipers, rotors, everything down to the unit bearing. Turn both carefully by hand and you should be able to tell which one is bad.

I have 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. There are different 4WD modes available. I was wondering which 4WD mode is the most fuel efficient and how do you engage the different 4WD modes?


4 wd part time is the most fuel efficient becuase it only engages when the tires start to spin. to engage the different 4wd modes pull up on the lever next to the shifter and you'll feel it engage into to its respected modes. recommended you engage the 4wd while moving slowly except for 4wd low full time which you need to put the shifter into neutral before you can engage it. remember 4 wd low full time is needed when none of the other modes work.

Grind noise when turning hard forward or reverse


Hi ****,

I have an older Cherokee Laredo and it does the same thing. On models like ours equipped with on the fly 4WD, the hubs are permanently locked. Whether engaged or not, the front wheels are connected to the rest of the drive train though U-Joints which are spinning with the wheels. On a hard turn, they can come close to binding. That's what you're feeling.

Go easy on the bat-turns. If you can't, make sure they're lubed good.

Enjoy
Mike

When I drive over 40 mph it pulls to the right, then to the back


You are going to have to do some looking to find this.
Check that the wheels turn freely when off the ground. any binding can indicate a brake staying applied. (usually an internally failed brake hose (not line) This is often mis-diagnosed as a bad caliper. Sometimes you can see a "blue" rotor on the one that's hanging up, or feel an excessive amount of heat from that wheel right after this happens.
Yes, check suspension parts and bearings but usually they will cause problems at all speeds, and cause "clunking" noises stopping, starting off and in turns.

Turning sharply in parking lot vibration or rubbing feeling in the steering also in reverse on 2001 grande cherokee with quadra track 2


1st let me make sure I understand your Jeeps 4 wheel drive. I believe the quadra trac system is a full time 4 wheel drive, there is no 2 wheel drive setting, only a separate 4 Lo (for very slow speed). If this is correct, the problem is, the quadra trac system you have is supposed to compensate for any variations in wheel speed, whether it's driving in the snow, or cutting the wheels sharply to park on dry pavement. What u describe is typical behavior of a part time 4 wheel drive system. The problem is, your full time 4x4 should be compensating for this, and it's not. So, let me know if the above info about your 4wd is accurate (no part time 4wd setting, no 2wd setting, only full time 4wd and 4Lo setting. If it is, the system is not compensating for changes in the wheel slippage correctly.

Taking a while to go into gear


Check the fluid level of the transmission.The model number in your vehicle is the A500,also designated the 42RE.With this trans,the fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral,and the parking brake set,with the vehicle on level ground.If it is low on fluid,then there is a leak that must be located,and repaired.
