Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Noise similiar to "rubbing" on tire from right rear.

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?

    Nope...nice try though. It's nearly driving me batty. I just turn up the radio all the way now.LOL! I have been noticing that the sound is more pronounced when I accellerate up a hill. I'm still open to any ideas

    It happens under both circumstances. In fact, passengers notice it more than I do and want to know what's happening in the rear of the Jeep. I also get an intermittent smell like something's burning, but not that distinct. The smell comes and goes and passengers really notice it.

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.

If your fuel filler is on that side, try stopping, going out & loosening gas cap, then re-tighten it & see if it goes away.

    Does it happen when your alone in the vehicle very often, or do you notice it more when passengers in vehicle, or it doesn't matter?

Rubing noise when turning. had power steering checked and was good. i can hear it comming from steering. sounds dry, any grease zerks?


As far as the grease fittings are concerned, you should have between 2 to 6 fittings. 1 on each upper control arm, 1 on each tie rod, and possibly 2 on the center links. If you are hearing a rubbing noise, it could possible be the wheels rubbing on the inside of the wheel well. Alot of people like to put bigger tires on 4x4's to add give them extra clearance off the ground, specifically for off roading. But with the bigger tires could also come a wider tire, causing the rubbing. Have your tire dealer check for correct tire size.

I have a 99 Jeep cherokee and there is a popping noise when turning or backing up. I have replaced everything possible and the noise is still there


This may sound stupid but have you looked at your splash guards in your wheel wells. I had simular noises coming from one of my cars, I thought that it was the suspention, and after a while of looking around i found it was my splash guard rubbing against the tire. I was just glad I didn't take it in to a shop. LOL!

I have a 99 jeep cherokee sport. When making a sharp turn to the left I hear a rubbing sound coming from the left front tire area. There is currently a light squealing noise when stopping. Are the two...


Probably. Check your brake rotor and caliper. The brake pads may be worn down enough to make that noise. Brake pads are around $29 bucks for a set. And rotors are about the same each at Autozone. I just did mine recently and I am VERY happy now that my 99 Jeep cherokee stops right and doesn't make the rubbing noise when cornering, and the squealing noise when stopping. There you go! Happy Motoring!

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee limited 135k miles.. 2wd rear... when i start off and when i stop i hear something like a dragging sound coming from the rear... what could cause this?


It could be your brakes. Jack up the car, put on safety stands, block front wheels at front and back of tires, put Jeep in neutral, try to spin rear wheels, listen for any rubbing, dragging noise. It could either be brakes not releasing (feel the center of the wheel after driving, is it hot?), or a brake component loose and floating around inside the drum. 'Check this 1st, let me know what you find, then we can continue if necessary.

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

RUBBING NOISE


check to see if the rear tires are making contact with the rear struts or springs, sometimes if you tow a heavy load with these cars it bends the spring perchs down and they rub on the inside tread of the tire, also be sure you have the right tire size on the car please rate -jeff

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
