Jeep cherokee when in drive, front right under the hood clicks and the RPM's kick for about 2 seconds this cycles about every ten seconds.

When Jeep Cherokee 2001 is in drive but break position I hear a click under the front right part of my hood. Then the RPM's throttle slightly for about 2 seconds. This repeats about every ten seconds. Any thoughts on what this could be. This also occurs while driving.

Testimonial: "Hi All, Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L 2001- 125k Miles. A few months back my Jeep started "Revving Up" every 7 seconds when the AC was engaged. I would hear a click in the front of the jeep, if looking head on- The click came from the left. Most recently a family member took my Jeep to a repair shop and the owner mentioned there was "Gunk" forcing the car to exert more power to engage when the AC was on. He cleared the gunk and also mentioned that the car works great but may have a tranmission valve problem down the road. But for now its all fine. 24 hours later the Jeep died mid drive. Jeep would start and then die after a few seconds. Other times it would start and I could drive it for a minute and then it would die. We took the jeep back in and now they are telling me the computer is pointing to a problem with the transmission and will cost 1700 to fix. A lot is uncertain at this point. I would also like to point out that prior to the initial trip to the garage regarding the "revving" issue, I had this garage look over the jeep and fix any critical issues. They initially had not mentioned anything wrong with the transmission and this jeep has never had those issues or broken down. Thoughts??? The first garage trip resulted in the replacement of the exhaust system, scrubbing back brakes and a couple other minor fixes. would love to hear some advice on the matter. You can reach me sirectly at tomurban27@gmail.com Thank you so much, i am in the dark on this one."

SOURCE: I have 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it is leaking coolant

Front drivers side could be a bad cap, lower hose or the radiator itself. You need to look carefully and find the leak source. Steam travels and isn't a good indication of where the actual leak is coolant will run down and take any path it can to reach the ground. Therefore, you need to follow it back to where it is coming from, then deal with it. Your water pump can also leak and run down the lower hose. there is a small hole in the pump behind the pulley. If you see coolant coming from there the pump needs to be replaced. Sealers will not work on hoses or pump leaks so don't bother using them for that.
Good luck...don't forget this is free, so rate answers!
I will answer follow-up questions too!

Where is my fuse box and where they store the extra fuses ?


The way you describe it, it sounds more like a loose connector or faulty wire to me. Fuses do not blow then "unblow" for a few seconds then blow again. I would recommend checking the power and ground circuits to your instrument cluster.

Another thing that is important that you understand is that fuses do not cause electrical system failures. Electrical system failures cause blown fuses.

With all that said, there are 2 fuse boxes. One is under the hood on the right fender apron and the other is under the dash at the right kick panel.

There are also 2 fuses that provide circuit protection for your instrument cluster. One is 15 Amp fuse #16 in the underhood power distribution center and the other is 10 Amp fuse #9 in the junction block under the dash.

1993 dodge Grand Cherokee with a 318 hard starting when cold until things under hood click and fuel pump runs.


Your jeep ecu is in need of repair. It has what is referred to as the delayed check engine light problem. If you'll notice, next time you try starting the jeep, it will not start when the check engine light finally comes on, on the dash. The fuel pump will only come on when the ecu finally energizes the relays, and that's when all the clicking starts. Look on ebay for an ecu repair service.

Four wheel drive wont engage


Hi ninja,

Select-Trac?

Make sure you have plenty of 90 wt. in the front axle. I've got an '86 Cherokee Laredo. It doesn't kick right in to gear. You need to be moving, but not to fast. Sometimes reversing, then back into drive works.

When you disengage it, if you are moving at or above 30 mph, you'll hjear a rapid clicking from the front axle as it tries to let go. Put it in neutral for a second or two. That will take enough strain off the drive train to allow it to disengage.

Best regards
Mike

Where is fusebox '96 jeep cherokee classic 4x4


97 is on the right side passenger kick panel. Look there and also under dash on drivers side. There is a second set of "main" fuses under the hood in the power distribution center near the battery. The fastest and easiest way to check them is to use a test light and probe both end openings of each fuse with the key in the"on"position. All fuses should have power at both ends except for the light fuse which is only hot with the lights on.
