Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

Car shudders at low speed when turning

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited shudders at low speed when turning tight right or left turns. It feels like the front end drifts with the rear end pushing the car thru the turn. I had the transfer case oil changed and had modifier added, but it did not correct problem. Is coupler going bad?

This sounds like there is something worn in the steering. If it is a rack & Pinion steering the rack could be worn out. It could also be the CV joints to the front hubs. Regardless it does not sound safe. Take it to an independent mechanic, NOT THE DEALER, and have it inspected. There typically is not charge to inspect/identify the problem.

95 Jeep Grand Cherokee front end feels like it's fighting either side either way I turn cv shafts are <10k on them...it feels like the front spider gear is stuck


Not familiar with the ZJ, but does it have a locking differential? Do they use limited slip additive in ZJ diff? If so, then its probably due for a fluid change and new additive.

I have 2002 grand Cherokee that makes noise that sounds like tires are rubbing when making turns left or right. Seems worse when jeep has been driven for awhile.


You probably have Quadra Drive. Your problem comes from lack of limited slip additive in the differential fluid.If the fluid was changed a long time ago, you better change it and add the limited slip additive. If it was changed lately, then just add the limited slip additive. Drive some tight figure 8 s after the fluid change, to let the additive work into the vari-lok differentials.
Sometimes the problem is a low fluid level in the T-case, so check that out as well.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited makes rear noise when turning left?


Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

When we turn our 2001 jeep grand cherokee, there is this low, almost grinding sound that appears. This is only when we are traveling at low speeds (below 10 mph). No one seems to know what is causing it....


Your Jeep has limited slip diffs.The last time you had it serviced,is probably when the problem started.Think.Was it?What the problem is,,the wrong diff oil was put in.At slow speeds,the plates in the diffs are shuddering.You can get some additive called friction modifier additive and in each diff you need 2 fluid ounces of the stuff.Or change all the diff oils..
Once the additive or new oil is in,,drive the vehicle in very tight slow turns for about 5 mins.A shopping centre carpark is good.This helps spread the oil throughout the diffs and should very well fix the problem.the additive is the cheaper way to go and does work.Hope this helps you

This may sound strange to you,but I think the wrong oil,or no additive has been added to the rear diff when you had it serviced.Did you recently have it serviced?What it is ,is the limited slip diff clutch plates,shuddering as the car is turning.The remedy is to change the oil that is in there ,if it's wrong oil, or put additive into the diff.Its called 'FRICTION MODIFIER'.Check the rear diff also.Hope this helps
