You may have worn out CV joints on the front wheel drive axles, they vibrate/shudder badly if they are really worn out.

Hello, I'm looking for a replacement for my jeep cherokee 99, the current part number is Chysler P56041 629AD, I found a Chysler P56041 278AD, can this computer works ok with my cherokee?


THE PCM MODULE.
no country stated, the 728ad shows Europe. (why?)
"I found"

where, at ebay, at pick-apart, or ?
USA cars have 11 PCM for one engine. fact.
and 100s more world wide.
what a question, just a p/n
then you post to grand Cherokee and then text leaving out Grand.?
why?
i searched the part at jeep and is wrangle part, 629ad.

you do know that it must be reprogrammed to your car right:?
the pcms on cars can vary
by engine, trans opted , 4wd/2wd,and year.
federal PCM
Calif PCM
and mexico PCM
and 9 more. just for 1999

is yours 42RE for 45RFE?? tranny??? 30/32 RH? what?
post county (or state if calif)
post engine and year
post body and not contradict.?
post drive line, in car, tranny and if 4wd?
then we can match it up
or call jeep.com

they (jeep) will do this magical thing!
ask you the VIN.
and then look it up in their database.
and see ALL THE ABOVE even what radio is in it. of 5.
me, im a glass half full guy (hard knocks, reality stuff)
id not even believe the part in car is correct.
im too SAVVY !
i find out from jeep what it should have first.

not one matches the 4.0L in the GC.


the 629 posted shows this at jeep.com

How to switch 4 wheel drive back to 2 wheel drive in my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee


that is because you have Part time 4wd? (what do you have)?
and must not drive on pavement free of ice.
its now winding up the drive train, bad for it too.

drive, to dirt, sand, gavel or grass and shift out of 4wd.
or jack up 1 tire, and same,
one tire must be on slippery surface. at least.

http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html

this happens on all PT 4wd
or using LOCK on AWD. dont.

I have a wicked front end shake at 30 MPH, but it goes away.I Have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Is this just my tires?


Need more info. Does it shake during acceleration or braking? Have you recently had new tire put on? A couple of suggestions.... Check tires to make sure no lugs came loose, check brake area, could even be a loose motor mount. Check easiest stuff first.

Grinding while turning


shuddering while driving means you should have the front wheels rebalanced. as for the grinding that could be a wheel bearing or ball joint going bad
