They used to do that as "normal" when they had universal joints on the axle ends...I believe you have c/v joints there...If one has gone bad, it's possible that is causing the same problem...Check the boots on the wheel end of the axles...If they are torn, it's a good indication that the joint has gotten contaminated with road dirt and has failed. The hubs are actually a sealed double roller bearing that's used in place of the old style individual roller bearings. If it is really bad, it can bind but usually rumbles and causes a vibration in the wheel at speed. It is located inside the steering knuckle where the axle passes through, and is part of the flange that your wheel bolts to. With the brakes and rotor removed if you feel any roughness when you turn that flange then the bearing is bad...Don't forget turning by hand is far less demanding than turning with the vehicle weight on it so any roughness is magnified far beyond what you feel.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4X4 with wayyyy too much play in the steering. Scary play. You have to turn the wheel half way around for the tires to start turning. Is it a front end issue?


Lay under the front end and have someone turn the wheel back and forth. Inspect all the steering linkage components for play in the joints. any play is too much and the fitting should be replaced. It may also be the ball joints. They are located on the steering knuckle at each front wheel.Inspect for play in the same manner

1999 Jeep cherokee Sport...turn signals don't always work


Sounds like a broken directional switch inside the column. You have an airbag system. I strongly recommend you either get yourself a chiltons or haynes manual and follow dis assembly instructions EXACTLY or have a shop do the work for you. If airbag deploys while you are working on it it can and wll ruin your day in a big hurry. (trip to hospital)

1999 Jeep Cherokee sport/air vents do not blow out cold or hot while it is on


this sounds like the recirculation door in the heater box is broken and this is a difficult and can be an expensive repair as the dash has to be removed for access. a quick check for this is if you release the glove box and let it hang you will see the heater box if you reach up to the left top you will feel a grid and the recirc flap is housed there you can operate the blower and hot and cold and see if flap moves
