Question about 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport
When regularly driving seems to be no problem with vehicle, but when hitting a bump (especially speed bumbs, even at very slow speed), there is a metalic skreach, (simialar to belt slipping) it has fairly new belt and just replaced an idler pully (because thought this could be the problem, but no.) it seems to be worse when starting out driving then lessens thru the day. it also happened once when starting the car in park. ck'd all pulleys, no rub marks anywhere, not shock problem,(all new on all four wheels). am thinking possible flywheel or clutch problems? any suggestions appriciated thanks very much for your time. 4.0 liter with auto trans.
You don't think it might be the power steering pump making that noise. It could be flywheel. Tell you what, if it is flywheel hears a way to chk. (outside of going underneith car), have you ever powerbreaked a car? setting still, step on break hold it down firm put it in gear and start giveing it throuttle do it in forward and reverse you might have to give it alittle more throttle than your comfortable with but thats the way your going to find out if its flywheel it should start making that noise or sound like a rod nocking or like your hitting a piece of metal with a hammer something on that order. Try that and see what happens Best to do this when there is nothing infront or behind you.
