Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Loud bang/clanking from rear of jeep

Backed the jeep out of my steep driveway slowly heard a loud bang. I thought I hit a car. Got out and checked...I didn't hit anything. Put the car into drive was going 15 miles and heard a clank. Stopped...drove again going 30 and heard another clank. Took it to the auto repair and they said nothing wrong with it. Picked it up from the auto shop and on the way home clank/clank/clank. Drove it back to the dealership and he went for a drive with us. No clanking. At a lost since the repair guy doesn't see a problem yet my car is doing random loud clanking noises from the rear.

SOURCE: 98 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4X2 suddenly dies .....

It sounds like you have some **** in the gas tank that is being drawn to the pickup blocking it.
Have seen this and because it seems so random, it can drive ya nuts.

You might carry a coffee can with you and pull the line from the fuel rail when this happens stick it in the can and just have someone turn the key on for a few seconds.
Beware though, it comes out with force.

Also possible is a failed fuel pressure regulator.
Those aren't expensive and . . . well, not very good either.

SOURCE: 1996 jeep grand cherokee ltd problem with transfer case because of different size tires

You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.

SOURCE: Oil pressure light comes on after driving on highway for 10 miles

Sounds like your sending unit sensor - if it was your pump going out, your engine would be history by now. Rule of thumb, if your oil check light ever comes on, it's usually too late to remedy the problem. You have a major issue, but since you've obviousely drove it quite a bit since then and it still hasn't seized up, I'm guessing you're ok...for now. Since you took it to a shop and they said you're ok, I'm assuming they checked your level and visually checked for leaks and found nothing. Either, you've got somethijng partially blocking your pick-up tube for the pump which is in your oil pan, or a electrical issue with the sensor. I would start by having someone check the sensor out and go from there...good luck.

My car started clunking in the rear near the tire, especially when I turn left


Check your top shock absorber and/or strut mounts, they may have been hammered by the many bumps and stripped out the mounting hardware on top just an eighth of an inch which will cause super loud bangs as that side wobbles up and down and hits into the Body Metal. These can get dangerous if left loose at all, my old boss said his Taurus would change lanes by itself at 120 Km/hr in the rain!

OK, here's one that has everyone stumped. Backed into the driveway and turned my 98 Cherokee off. Keys in my pocket. Heard a loud noise like a leaf blower or shop vac. Thought it was my neighbor then...


it was probably the starter solinoid stuck.. Do you have a aftermarket alarm in it with a starter kill? or a remote start? Its possible to have a malfuntion and that was putting power to the solinoid. check the wires on the starter to make sure they are not melted, shorting power to the solinoid down there. (the small wire on the starter solinoid is the trigger, and should only get power when tring to start) if all that is good it is probably a bad starter. do you have an oil leak leaking onto the starter? oil leaks are very hard on starters.
