Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Was hit in the rear of my Jeep. Messed up back bumper & tire.

I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler that was involved in an accident today. I was hit in the rear from someone driving approx. 40 mph. It messed up the rear right bumper & pushed the tire forward, bending it. What are the chances of this being a fixable problem? Or is my Jeep going to be considered totaled?

    I'm ok! Thanks! I work for UPS & so I'm very aware of my surroundings while I'm on the road. I saw it coming but knew there was no way to stop the accident b/c there was oncoming traffic on the opposite side of the road. So I swerved to my right as best I could. Had I have not seen it coming, I would've been pushed into oncoming traffic & it probably wouldn't have been too pretty. I'm not having any pain or discomfort, just shaken up a little. Not sure if the lady was on her cell. Thanks for the advice. I love my Jeep & just hope they can fix it!

WOW! are you ok? May be sore tomorrow morning. 9 years old is against fixing it, as the value has dropped since new of course, but wranglers hold their value well. You are going to have to bring it to a body shop with a frame machine to check to see how tweaked the frame is. The tire being pushed forward can be fixed, although that's going to cost too. Hope you're ok, and yes, I think you can get it fixed , although it's going to be close. Was the moron that hit you on a cell phone? I almost got t-boned today by a guy on his cell blowing off a red light. Cop 100' down the street didn't see it! His lucky day! Let me know how you make out. Good luck Curt

Load clunk from under my 2003 Jeep Wrangler when going over bumps

You need to get the vehicle up on a hoist. It can be any number of things like a broken muffler mount, gas tank strap, undercarriage spare tire, and even a loose rear bumper. Shock absorbers could be worn out, a broken leaf on a spring, etc.

These are just some of the things possible.

I am working on a 2000 jeep wrangle sport. i cant get to my rear brakes because of a cover. how do i get that cover off so i can get to my rear brakes

That "cover" is the rear brake drum, part of the braking system. Jeep Sports come with drum rear brakes, not disc brakes. Once the lug nuts and tires are off, the drum will jut pull off. It may take some gentle force (hammer taps on the rear side) but there is nothing else securing it other than the rim and lug nuts.

My jeep won't start

You need to find the auto shut down relay (shuts down engine in accidents.) Likely it has triggered I am not sure if yours is re-settable or not but if not you can replace it. Generally this relay is found somewhere at the front of the vehicle, underneath, in the vicinity of the bumper. Anyone that works in a body shop can likely point it out or tell you where to look for yours. I'm sure there are a bunch of off road guys who also know how to bypass these, otherwise they would all have problems banging and bumping their way through rough terrain.Sorry I can't be more specif
good luckic with this but they keep moving them around!

Check Engine Light is Staying On

I agree with timmyb187. The dealership will test for codes and see exactly what sensor might be putting that light on. Under the bumper are sensors for the airbag. There could be a harness that got cut because of the accident.
