Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

05 jeep grand cherokee has a knocking noise.

My jeep has a knocking noise and when i floor the gas pedal it slowly accelerates up to about 3 grand or 4 grand and then sometimes shifts. when it does shift its a really hard ****. yesterday the engine was running as if it wasnt getting enough fuel or air. and my check engine light started blinking. so a took it to auto zone and had them pull the codes on it for the check engine light and a brought up a code 300 which is a random piston misfire. so a cleaned out my throtle body and replaced the spark plugs. but i disconnected the battery and turned off my check engine light and took it for a drive and now the engine is acting like its still not getting any fuel cause it still has no power when i floor it. and still has a problem shifting. im starting to think its a computer problem could all this be caused by a computer problem? and if not what else could it be?

Just sounds to me like the timming is retarted, because of the slow accelerateing, was the code 300 the only one it brought up? it could be computer problem, but the computer only adjusts engine functions from what sensors sends signals back to it. it just sounds to me it has to do with timming, like crank sensor, or cam sensor. with it running like you say the chk. engine light will come back on in witch case i would have it scaned again. just remember what codes you get when its scaned does not always mean thats whats the problem is, its mostly a starting point, to point you in the general direction of the problem. its kind of like reading between the lines, if you know what i mean.

Sounds like you have a fuel delivery problem . if the engine is slugish and set code for random missfire more likely is starving for fuel.check fuel filter and replace it. check fuel pressure you may need a fuel pump. i hope it helped you.rate me and if you need more help let me know.

Hi.

Tell them to check the throttle transmission sensor. From your general description it looks like the truck is shifting in the wrong gear at low RPM. That is often caused by a defective TPS. The TPS senses the throttle opening. The part is basically a variable resistor mounted on the throttle body. The TPS is tested by reading volts while operating the pedal. Making sure that voltage is in range and that there are no gaps or spikes in voltage changing while the pedal gets pressed slowly and smoothly.

HI,
Wow! Glad you both came out of it unhurt.
What I think happened is that one or more of you engine mounts failed. When you punch the gas pedal on a car with a failed engine mount. The engine will twist in the opposite direction of the torque being created in the drive train. When you punch it hard, while passing, the engine will twist enough to pinch the gas pedal linkage against the chassis wall, locking down. DON'T DRIVE IT, EVEN IF SLOWLY. GET IT TOWED. Installing mounts is not a very difficult job, so you can, if you want, do it yourself. Hope the rest of your New Year has no more excitement and adventure that you don't want.
Happy New Year,
Best Regards,
Mark

Audible knocking in rear of 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo with 150,800 miles knocking only occurs when accelerator is not pressed


Sounds as If You Have A Chipped Tooth On the "RING GEAR" in the Differential (Rear Alex).
Is this Where You Hear The Noise Coming from? If So Remove Diff Cover With One Wheel OFF The Ground Trans In Neutral Rotate Drive Shaft and Look Closely For ANY Abnormal Surface on EACH Tooth of RING GEAR= the Large one And The "PINION GEAR" the Small one. If you find Chip or Rough spot Diff Must Be Rebuilt. Beyond that A Pinion Bearing can Also Make A Knocking Noise But the "GEARS" Will Be a Rhythmic Noise. I Hope this is of Some Help To You Good Luck !!
