Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Steering issue the first time you drive for the day.

When you first drive for the day. "Example: Back out of the garage and turn out of the drive way", there is an unual noise and it feels like it is in locked 4 wheel drive when you steer left and right. It continues to do this for a couple of minutes of driving then the sound and feeling go away and will not come back until the vehicle sets for some period of time several hrs.

Steering goes from easier to stiff and back to easy when going from highway speed to off ramp. This hard steering can last from 15 seconds to 1 minute, any ideas?


The hassle has to be with the power steering pump..Check to make sure that the fluid level is up to spec and there are no leaks in the hoses.. If all looks good then the pump has an intermittent condition responsible for issue. U might want to wait till it goes completely or replace it.

Fortunately when a car is in motion the absence of of the assist is no big deal/ it helps with parking and other slow maneuvering.

Motor oil in power steering reservoir?? How or what causes this to occur? PLEASE HELP!


I can not see how engine oil can get into the power steering system. Even if the pump is gear driven from the cam or crank and leak would allow steering oil into the sump and not the other way around. I think that he oil you are seeing is the power steering oil badly burnt from a failed pump. It is possible for some one to put engine oil in or an additive that was incompatible with the steering oil .Pull a hose and drain the fluid out of the reservoir. Do this 2 or3 times . I imagine there will be pump damage already so if you are prepared to drive to the garage for repairs do it in anticipation of complete steering failure and keep the speed down Personally I would put it on a tilt tray and have it delivered to the garage. It may be cheaper in the long run

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L. About a couple of months ago, my dad did a tune-up on it: changed the spark plugs, the O2 sensors, and the fuel filter. However, recently my car has started...


is there a check engine light on when truck is running ? Does it stall when you hit bumps, only when you turn, stop ? ( my concern is the sometimes dont start.) for a minute or next day or what. Take it to a garage and have them do a fuel pressure test. Fuel pumps act up like this a couple times before they fail. if pressure checks good then i would check vacuum lines or wiggle all electrical wires for grounding which stalls car. AGAIN, GET THAT FUEL PRESSURE CHECKED before you start guessing and replacing everything.

2005 mazda rx-8 automatic will not start


Does it actually crank? If so and doesnt start then its probably flooded. Been a problem with those cars since they came out but not to feel bad theres quite a few cars that flood easy do to certain sensors. If not turning over but just clicks then battery issue just keep in mind every time try to start and it doesnt that more fuel enters the system and doesnt burn off which means more flooding (to much fuel)

Airbag light comes on.


Just got my car back from the garage for this exact problem. It started about 3 months ago. The airbag light would go on for no reason. I did notice when this would happen my power windows would not work. All of a sudden it would come back on and everything would be fine. When I took it in the first time the garage coulnt find anything wrong. Then it got cold. Three days ago as I was driving I adjusted my steering wheel and the air bag light came on. Only this time I had my heater on and the heater went off and once again the windows would not work. I moved my steering wheel again and the light went off, the heater came back on and the windows worked again. All of a sudden the airbag light came on and this time it stayed on. Now I had no heat. I took it in and they said for some reason the wires in the steering wheel were being pinched and shorting and this short was had also caused the ignition switch to go bad, which also had to be replaced for the second time in a year. I got my car back, but you can be assured I will not be adjusting the steering wheel. Good Luck.
