Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler
I had my 2007 1 year and had to replace the brake pads and roaters turned and here it is 10 months later and dealership told me pads are bad again and need to be replaced again at less than 1 year later? I also have a loud clunking noise in the rearend that the dealership cannot hear? but i can even feel it, i have replaced the differintial fluid every 12,000 miles which is reccommended, but feel is bull sh--!! has anyone else had these issues??
You may want to switch over to a better brake pad like ceramics...a bit more $ but they may last longer. Generally, brakes should last longer than 10 months but sometimes the system needs to be modified a bit to accommodate your driving habits.
Ask to have someone from the shop drive with you and point out the noise to them. This will establish that there is a problem. Clunking noise generally stems from a component with too much freeplay, allowing it to travel enough to "hammer" when it finally reaches a point where it has to stop. This applies to a worn universal joint, space between gears (called lash), as well as any component attached externally to the differential, such as control/sway bars etc. These can all be visually checked and verified as good or bad.
Changing the diff fluid at 12,000 miles isn't a bad thing, but likely you could stretch it to two year intervals (unless you tow or off road frequently)
You can do this yourself for less than $20. and it is not difficult or complex.
