Do you have metallic pads? They can be noisy.

BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM

Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

Check the front stabilizer bar and the bushings on it. It is located under the radiator with arms that bend back to each front tire.

First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V-8 shakes something awful sometimes when I brake at speeds of 50mph+. It then starts to wobble and doesn`t brake good when that is happening. What is causing this to happen...


JoeYuma, find a journeyman mechanic and tell him your rotors are warped and watch him replace them. As it is 10 and who knows how many miles are on it; while you are in there put new calipers and pads in it too and take a gander at the rear brakes as well.

Do they still have a "boys town" south of the border down there?

Front end making rattling, thumping noise when driving. Slowing of speed increases the noise.


i would 1st check out the front tires to make sure that they are not defective, if tires check out ok, then i would put the jeep on a rack at a garage, and check out all of the front end components, including c. v. joints and the wheel bearings.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee loud grinding sound when braking


It would be hard to guess at you electrical problems but get your brakes checked.It sounds like your pads have worn down to metal on metal.Very dangerous and can get expensive to fix the longer you leave it.A visual inspection can tell within minutes if this is the problem.If this isn't the problem the 2nd most common thing is a loose brake caliper or caliper mount.A friend with some mechanical knowledge will be able to check the brake pad thickness very easily and quickly with just a torch.Hope this helps

My 94 Jeep grand cherokee has a thunking noise that sounds as if it comming from the front end when i turn or step on the brakes.. i checked the sway bar and nothing seems wrong.. please help


Jeeps are one of those vehicles that has some PROs and CONs. One big con is the front-end. Its never just one thing, LOL. You need to check out the front-end, thoroughly. Check all the components, check out the ball joints, tie-rod ends, u-joints, shocks, wheel bearings, and brake components. You can also inspect the wheel lug-nuts.
