Check Coolant Level! Could just be low coolant in reservoir or radiator.
"Death Wobble" sounds bad but could just be tires and/or alignment. Wobble could also be worn front end parts (ball joints-upper&lower).
To check suspension (front end) car should be jacked up so wheels can be shaken to see if anything is loose and inspect rubber boots on ball joints for play and wear.
I always ask if I can take the car in for an inspection and then I run it through local DMV before buying! This saved me a couple of times from a bad buy!

Hope this is Helpful!

Either the front bearing assemblies are bad or if it's a 4wd, the outer u-joints are bad. Check steering box and components. The low coolant light could be as easy as the surge tank float that measured coolant level could be stuck down.

Hi. ok, the low coolant light is a bad sign. this can be a minor leak in many areas on the engine. i would ask the dealer about the service record on the coolant system. you will want to know when the last radiator flush was preformed as well as, when was the last thermostat replacement was done. next, ask the dealer for an accident record. this can be done online on carfacts.com but, the dealer should do this. if he is hesitant, don't buy this vehicle. I would also do a lemon test. Look at the tail pipe and rub the inside of this pipe with the tip of your finger. if its black and smells like rich gas/oil mixture, it will need a re-haul soon. one more thing, when driving, pay attention to the way the steering reacts to your command. if its lose, its not good. check all light functions as well.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When I put my jeep in gear it does not engage and the car will not move. What can cause this?


This has to be the automatic transmission. It could be as simple as a clogged/dirty filter or as serious as a malfunctioning front pump. Even a low level of trans fluid could cause this, which would indicate a leak.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid


Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

Info center


Have any lamps been replaced in the rear? If so, the lamps have to be the same because the info center checks the the resistance of the bulbs. You can not substitute a 2057 for a 1057.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee electrical problem


Check the center brake light assembly. There are 3 bulbs and if one is out it will give you the bulb out warning. This is frequently missed as if the center bulb is out it is easy to overlook.

Do yourself a favor and replace all 3 when you are there as the dissassembly/assembly is not that easy on 96-98 Grands
