Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I've been hearing a constant noise whenever I accelerate. The noise is hard to describe...it's not a grinding noise, but more of a light rubbing/whistling noise. It doesn't happen immediately upon acceleration, but whenever I get to around 10-15 mph the noise starts and continues, unless I'm coasting or slow way down. I mainly hear it on the drivers side. Any suggestions???

Check your oil immediately. Tapping is indicative of either low oil level or poor oil circulation. Running the truck under either condition is hazardous to your engine.

SOURCE: Vibration while accelerating from 30 to 45 mph Jeep GrandCherokee

Not a tune up problem,
You need to have all U-joints checked out,They will give you the vibrations only while acceleration

SOURCE: Grinding noise when accelerating. I drive a 1994

It sounds more like your wheel bearing. If you jack the car up in the front grab the tire at 12 and 6 and try to wiggle it. If there is movement that will prove to be your wheel bearing or your ball joint. If you have someone look under the car at the ball joint while you do it, you can single out the ball joint and tell if all the play is in your wheel bearing. Usually CV shafts are pretty resilliant, unless they click when you turn the teeth in them should be ok. They will whistle thought if there is no grease in the boot. IF one of your boots are torn and the grease is gone then you can look at the CV shaft. But as far as grinding that is something thats broken or lack of lubrication. Check the CV, but be sure to check the wheel bearing, and make sure the brakes are ok. Unfortunately without being there it makes it a little difficult to be positive. Thanks.

Disconnecting your battery, as you must've done when changing the starter, will cause the ecu to revert to factory settings and the computer will have to relearn the proper idle for your jeep.

2000 grand jeep cherokee limited 4.7 liter, v8, at first wouldn't start rplaced battery because dead and then replaced starter. ran ok for a couple days. last night started it and hard time with it...


Hi
Pop into to your local garage and have a diagnostic test carried out.
Listen to the advise given. It may save you lots of money, especially if you start the "guessing" game.
It does sound like a part may be blocked or failed though, but the sytem needs to be tested thoroughly first.
Good luck

Motorway whine in my 1997 Jeep grand


The noise you are hearing may be caused by a loose or worn serpentine belt and is slipping during all engine speeds while under load. It could also be a worn serpentine idler pulley that has worn out. These are just two areas for you to consider,but it is hard for me to tell without actually hearing the noise. Take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have someone check these engine components for a possible cause. They won't charge you anything.
