    Are you talking the cooling fan for the engine, or the AC/heater fan for the passenger compartment?

    you have some thing stuck to the fan blades, wait until the engine is cool & check the vanes of the fan indidually, once you have done this check the gap in front of the fan,by the spindle & by the base of the fans circumference, remove any foreign matter such as leaves , paper etc & take the car out for a run, If you have visually inspected the fan & its housing & found nothing then the fan is not at fault but you may need a replacement fan clutch motor unit, buy a tested second hand unit as the new off the shelf prices are horrendous, No matter you mechanical know how, as long as you Purchase a Haynes or similar manual you will save yourself over 200 quid doing it yourself , hell a garage will charge you in excess of 40 Quid just for "Looking" at the, Please don't forget to rate my answer, Paul.

    ( Re-Answered With Spelling & Grammar Mistakes Edited) Sounds to me like you have some thing stuck to the fan blades, wait until the engine is cool & check the vanes of the fan individually, once you have done this check the gap in front of the fan,by the spindle & by the base of the fans circumference, remove any foreign matter such as leaves, paper, etc. & take the car out for a run, If the car still makes this noise & you have visually inspected the fan & its housing & found nothing then the fan is not at fault but you may need a replacement fan clutch motor unit, buy a tested second hand unit as the new off the shelf prices are horrendous, No matter your mechanical know how, as long as you Purchase a Haynes or similar manual you will save yourself over 200 quid doing it yourself , hell a garage will charge you in excess of 40 Quid just for "Looking" at the fan, Please don't forget to rate my answer, Paul.

9 out of ten times that's caused by a leaf getting caught in the fan. most times it will go away by itself.

JUST PAID OVER $600 A MONTH AGO - NEW STARTER, BATTERY, IGNITION SWITCH, AND TUNE-UP - LEFT HOME, STOPPED AT MOM'S, GOT BACK IN 1998 JEEP WRANGLER - NOTHING! NO ATTEMPT AT STARTER, NO CLICKS, NO NOISE -...


Sounds like a faulty / intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.

06 Jeep Wrangler making a loud clincking or grinding when turning


Hi there,

By any chance is the transfer case engaged?

A locked drive train could account for the noise being made only on turns.

Bring the transfer case to neutral then back to 2-high.

Or try to duplicate the problem by putting it into 4-high. THAT way the dealership would know exactly what to look at.

Winding noise in gear 1 ,automatic 1998 40l jeep wrangler


Your post is extremely difficult to understand...If I am reading it correctly, you have an internal whining noise from your automatic transmission. If so, the unit will need to be rebuilt. Likely the problem will continue to worsen 'till eventually it stops working.
Similar noise can also come from inside your transfer case. I'd check fluid levels in both before doing anything further, and get a second opinion before jumping right into any repair work.

Engine noise (clacking) in 1988 jeep wrangler


Is your car injected or carbureted? which engine? If you have a mechanical pump mounted on the engine, yes they can make noise but it's rare. Use a long bar and place it on the pump and listen with your ear to the bar. If noise isn't there, check valve comer for noise. (careful around the fan & belts)

98 jeepwrangler won't start


This is basic, but first off, try to shift it into neutral, and try to start it. It is easy for the linkage to get out of adjustment, where it thinks the jeep is in gear. If that does not work, make sure you have battery power to the ignition and starter.
