    everything was done to the rear differential by a certified mechanic it is not in the brake when you drive a few miles it feels like it is binding between two gears or something it starts to slow down when you give it gas is boggs down I pull over and put it in park and it still feels like it wants to go for a couple minutes then I pull out again and its fine for a minute then starts all over again

Setting up a differential is not just bolting in new requires setting gear lash, bearing pre-load etc. Assuming you did all this, have you checked the transfer case? an internal coupling failure will give you similar symptoms. What did you find wrong with the differential? Is the rear diff the same EXACT ratio as the front? Do you have the exact same size tires front & back? Did you check the obvious, such as the condition of all universal joints? I can't see from here so I have to ask these questions... Also...did you check the brakes to make sure that a hose has not collapsed and is causing brake not to fully release?

    Just an afterthought to what I said before... Are you sure the converter is not staying locked up or otherwise malfunctioning? Aside from what you said you eliminated (brakes and stuff) theres a lot to check here... how did you arrive at the conclusion to do the rear?

  • Richard Scordino Feb 08, 2009

    Watching pro bowl so my mind isn't all here right now... but I gave you a bunch of stuff to check... this isn't stuff I picked at random, there's a reason for everything I mentioned.... In reality, all of this should have been checked a long time ago, One question though,,, Did you buy it like this or did it just happen?

  • Richard Scordino Feb 09, 2009

    Ok... I thought as much... you've got the dreaded "someone elses problem" definitely check gear ratios and everything else I said....carefully!!!

How do you remove the front drive shaft in a 1995 jeep grand cherokee limited

Use white paint, chalk or a scribe to mark the relationship of the front U joint to the front diferential pinion yoke. Mark the relationship of the rear U joint flange to the transfer case companion flange. Unbolt the front end of the drive shaft from the pinion yoke and the rear end from the transfer case companion flange and remove the drive shaft from the vehicle.
hope thei info helps.

Back passenger rear wheel is locked

It sounds more like your rear end has a bad bearing or a bad pinion gear. If it has high miles it may be time for a rebuild. It could be brake related also, take off the back drum and see if anything is rattling around in there or broken. If your not hitting the brakes they shouldn't engage.

Jeep was doing ok ,as i came up our mountian i felt two or three small jerks,when i was close to the top it just would not go forward anymore,i tried every gear drive 1st,2nd and reverse,I also tried...

it sounds like your automatic transmission quit his job. How much miles are on the clock? If more than 150.000 and you pulled trailers, climb mountains etc. this will be the first choice. Let the engine idle, push the brakes and check if the car will go in any gear. If this will happen only in reverse gear, your auto trans need to be replaces. You can use a rebuilt auto trans.

Transfer case? Front diff? HELP!!

Sounds like a transfer case problem. But I can't verify that from here. Coupler is inside the unit on the output shaft and needs teardown to get to it.

4x4 light and knocking noise after driving

If you hear the noise after the engine is turned off that noise is most likely the exhaust system cooling down. As far as the light for the 4 wheel drive that requires a test be run with a special scan tool while the problem is occurring.
