Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Feels like the driver rear wheel sticks when making a turn

This only happens when we just start the car and maybe lasts thirty seconds. Since it only happens when first starting is it related to ABS?

    We occasionally put the parking brake on. I cycled the parking brake about 10 times the other day. The next morning the problem was significantly worse.

Does not sound like an abs problem... You will need to take wheel off and actually look and see whats binding. Also check for oil leaks from brakes or axle.

    OK, while wheel is off, spray wd40 into e brake cable end and work it back and forth. Make sure any linkage associated with brake should also work freely. Still check everything in general 'till you identify something that's not right.

We have a Mitshubishi Executive -year 2007. gotten second hand. It was fine for over a year and then a phenomenon occured and happens at irregular intervals--shaking of the wheel. VIbrations are felt in...


Computer testing is not going to find most mechanical failures. The computer systems in your vehicle controll electrical circuits.
It sounds to me like you may have some suspension bushings that are worn out. If it feels like the front (i.e. the sterring wheel is shaking, then check all the front suspension parts for looseness and wear. If it feels like the rear, make sure that the strut arms for the rear suspension do not have worn out bushings. Check all of the struts and/or shocks.
I had one of these one time that would be cruising down the highway with no problems, then you hit a rough spot in the pavement or a small pothole and the thing would start shaking so violently that it was threatening to go off the road. It turned out to be worn out bushings in the rear suspension.

Could be something sticking.Trans filter should be changed at least every 40,000-50,000 miles.If it has never been changed or has over 50,000 since the last filter service would start with a fluid flush and filter change.Well hope this helps, and good luck.

Feels like I'm running over rumble strips. Happens intermittently


When was the last time your wheels where spin balanced? Have the tires checked for wheel balance its probably out of balance. It will cause the tires to cup and it will make flat spots on the tires. To check rubb your hand over tire make sure tires don't have cupping on the outside tread and or flat spots through out the tire. Cupping - one tread is slightly higher than the rest.
Flat spots- center of tire will be flat or it could be all over the tire.

1991 jeep cherokee jerks while in 4x4 on turns..


The part time switch in the gearbox is sticking in the on position locking the 4x4 on. It feels and looks really bad because the front wheels are trying to pull the car left or right, while the rear axle is pushing you forward. This is at it's worst when in full lock on road or hard surfaces. This is why 4x4 is for off road only.

Hello, I have seen many differentials go bad on this model but you saying that the noise went away after you sprayed it with water doesn't make sense. If you want to check the wheel bearings, jack up the car and check the movement of your wheels by grabbing the top of the tire with one hand and the bottom of the tire with other and see if there is too much movement. If there is too much movement, then you need to replace the wheel bearings. (big job)
You also need to check the brake calipers to see if they are sticking. You can take a large screw driver and pry back the pads. They should move back with a little effort. If not, maybe the calipers are sticking.
I hope this helps.
