    Tattering, chattering noise progresses as the Jeep builds up speed, disappears past 40mph.

My diagram is also not there and it's not listed in the owner's manual. I did a search on net and came across this service manual on Ebay. I bought it, arrived in 2 days and it is filled with more information then I will ever use to repair my Jeep. This is a great manual on CD. for $15.00 Here is the link to check it out.

you must replace and lube the front sway bar bushings,chrysler service bulletin calls it a squak, but can sound like a rubbing, a clunk etc the common factor is this is really noticeable the colder it gets outside

SOURCE: 1996 suburban makes grinding noise in 2 wheel drive

sounds like the clip on the rear output shaft its probably broke. do this by removing the rear driveshaft, and the tail of the transfer case, there are 4 bolts holding it in place. then grab the output shaft and see if it has any front to back movement. if so pull it all the way to the rear and you should see a groove at the front part of the shaft where the clip goes. Then you should find the pieces fo the clip in the tail housing. One person said he found the replacement clip at a local tranny shop. I am calling the dealership parts counter for a new clip for my 97 Tahoe tomorrow. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: 4x4 transimission clunks when engaged?

When engaging the 4WD system, you are pulling the lever on the Transfer Case right? Not the transmission, it's a different gearbox.
There were several versions of transfer cases that used both full and part-time 4 wheel drive.
From your description this sounds like a part-time transfer case.
Going with that, it is somewhat normal to hear and feel a mild clunk when engaging 4WD high range, especially if you are at a complete stand-still or under full throttle.
Try engaging 4WD High while slowly rolling at idle - no throttle. It should pull in fairly smoothly.
Once 4WD is engaged it will literally LOCK the front and rear axles together. So do not do it on hard dry pavement.
These older style 4WD systems need a little "give" especially when turning. The engineers assume you are not engaging 4WD unless you are in a somewhat slippery scenario.
Many CV joints, axles, U-Joints, differentials, and transfer cases are damaged and broken by folks who don't understand this.
Reading the owners manual should provide a clearer description of what you've got.
Bear in mind that when you come out of 4WD it may not completely release, again due to hard pavement binding up the axles. You can try this: backing up 10-25 feet in a straight line, or getting one set of wheels on the shoulder or in some gravel. That should allow it to release the transfer case and go back to everyday 2WD high.
I hope this helps.
:)

SOURCE: clunking front hubs

usually the noise in the front end is the u-joints or cv joints out towards the tires.

Jingle noise coming from rear when driving and also when out of gear in motion.


Hi there,

I've tracked jingle noise down to muffler mounts, tail pipes that separated from the muffler and even pebbles caught in the hub cap. The 'in motion' symptom tells you in must be drive train.

Maybe something leaning against the drive shaft?

Beyond that, with the description supplied, there isn't much more I can suggest. You are there, I am not.

Best regards
Mike

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!

It sounds like maybe the wheel bearing is going bad and might get louder as you turn.
