I am currently having a similar problem. Though mine happens when I hit even the smallest bump or turning right at speeds above 45. I have been reading up on it, and a possible problem is hollow tie rods vs. solid tie rods. Also the shock on the front axle could be bad. As far as taking it seriously, mine has been this way for about 6 months. It isn't too bad if you are careful. Another problem I had that helped fix the problem was bad sway bar end links. I replaced them and it helped a ton.

Wheel hop is when the tire/wheel assembly bounces off the ground...Usually encountered at the rear of vehicles in drag race situations, caused by suspension "wrap up". At the front of a vehicle, the only possibility is extremely bad shock absorber, aggravated by a tire that is extremely out of balance or out of round. Either way this condition is dangerous and should be checked out and corrected immediately, and should not be casually considered and "tinkered" with!!! Suspension and braking take pryority above all else. They can cause damage to you and others!!! Understand my point???

I own a 95 JGC V8. Every time I turn(in either direction) the entire vehicle skips and makes a horrible lurching sound. I got the CV joints replaced a couple of years ago, and the problem persisted. I...


This could be a bearing problem, but it sounds to me like the lowwer ball joints. Ball joints are difficult to check, but if they are rusty then they are probably bad. Bearings on the other hand are not that hard to check. raise the tire/s off the ground , grab the tire top and bottom and push in and out. if there is movement in and out then the bearing is bad.

Why does the 4WD in part time wheel hop when turning but in full time 4WD doesnt do it on a jeep grand cherokee with select track & what is up with that death wobble


Hop when turning generally is caused by a bad (binding)axle joint on the wheel end.
Death wobble is most often traced to worn ball joints but can also be caused by worn tires, excessive play in any of the attachment arm bushings in the front end, worn (oblong) suspension to frame mount holes, or a steering box tearing away from the chassis. Sometimes it is a combination of excessive play in more than one item working together. Careful diagnosis (hands-on examination) is the only way to find and correct it.
Most often the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on steering linkage) is blamed for wobble but in reality it can be damaged by the wobble but nearly never causes it.

95 jeep grand cherokee died wont start,it cranks, checked fuel pump replaced filter cleaned injecters still nothing


Check to see if getting fire from coil or plugs. If not, your problem is most likely the Crankshaft Position Sensor.

$18 - $21 dollars. CPS is on left side of where transmission buckles to fly wheel, near top edge. One bolt and plugs in. (2 wires in plug)

Drive shaft to 4-wheel gear box might be in your way. No prob. 4 small bols and lower front end of drive shaft.

About a 45 - 60 minute job for shadetree mechanics, like myself, and 2 coffee breaks.

Prior syptoms of sensor going bad is engine rumbling real bad when coming to a stop, and sometimes dies but will start.

Hope this it.

RELACING WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 95 JEEP GRAND


Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly

Have a chirping sound front left ,wheel went drivin


had a break job lately? it might be the squeakers on break pads telling you its time for breaks. or if its 4 wheel drive could be a CV joint on front axel going bad, or wheel bearing going bad too.

I have another question


Did you support the vehicle on a lift and run it, with wheels engaged?
Since you have changed all the usual suspects, Have you checked the hub bearings? It could be that, or, something stupid like a backing plate hitting a rotor.
Regarding the cat/o2 sensor thing. Cats do go bad, so do o2 sensors but, generally a code for an o2 sensor indicates a problem elsewhere, causing a lean or rich condition in the exhaust pipe, beyond the parameters of the o2 sensor. PS: check warranty on cat. generally it runs longer than many other components.
