Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have an intermittent sound(s) that is coming from the right rear of my Jeep. I only get it when the vehicle has been at operating temp for at least 15 minutes or so. The sound is fickle in it's occurance. I can drive 40 or 50 miles without incident and then all of the sudden it starts and will go on for 3 or 4 minutes. It sounds very much like something is rubbing the tire; a low humming and modulated type of noise, but with a very noticable amplitude to the point that passengers wonder what the heck is going on. I've taken it several shops and nobody seems to know what the problem is. There is no visible rubbing or wear anywhere. I'm getting frustrated and afraid to drive the Jeep. Any ideas?
Have you checked your exhaust system? My Jeep will occasionally have the connection between the exhaust manifold and piping go bad, and it sounds pretty awful. If could be the car is heating up, and the joints might expand enough that the exhaust is bypassing the muffler and not going out the tailpipe. That could explain the smell as well.
