Jeep Cherokee - Sqeaking Undercarriage

I have a sqeaking noise coming from the undercarriage of my 2000 jeep cherokee sport. Can't tell if its the front or rear. It only squeaks when the car is moving. The squeaking gets louder when I speed up but the sqeaking doesn't speed up. The colder it is, the worse the sqeaking. The squeaking decreases after driving 20+ miles. I had it looked at and was told one of the u-joints was bad and had it replaced. $200 LATER AND I STILL HAVE A SQEAKING NOISE! I figure its not a belt because it only happens when the car is moving. I went to grease the front end and noticed all the bushings on the steering linkage, stabilizer bar, etc. are all dry rotted. Could this be the problem. Oh, also, its not the brakes as they were replaced recently. Thanks

I have the exact same problem, cant for the life of me pinpoint the problem. i dont think its the belt or tensioners because it remains constant regardless of speeds over 15-20mph- does go away under those speeds though. especially bad when cold or wet, non existent when weather is good. very annoying. you can only hear it when driving- cannot simulate it when idiling or pulling throttle cable when in park.

If the "sqeak" is more pronoused while going over bumps, then it is most likely a bushing in the front end. Check your fuel tank straps also, they may be loose. Sounds like this are always a pain to locate. Make sure nothing is in the back cargo area. You can also take your foot and shake the exhaust, WHILE THE CAR IS COOLED OFF OF COURSE.
You can also push down on each corner of the vehicle in the front and stand on the rear bumper to try to simulate or isolate the noise. That's all I have for ya. Good luck.

Squeaking noise right front ?


not sure what type vehicle we're talking about here, although you can lube up the rack and pinion or grease up your upper, if so equipped, and lower ball joints.

A rotational mid range sqeaking noise is coming from dash or engine. Occurs just after I reach 21 mph. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it stops after stopping


Just curious, check the cable under car near transfer case and see if it's rubbing on front driveshaft. If it is just loosely tie strap it to transfer case out of the way.

Squeaking mouse noise from the passenger front tire area.


If I had to make a guess, I'll bet the noise is the wear indicators on your front brake pads just beginning to touch the rotors. If you remove the wheel, you should see a small metal tab on the rear of the pad. If it is very close to the rotor, replace the front pads. I've seen lots of people just bend the tab back to stop the noise, but if you do that it's almost guaranteed that you will forget 'till the rotors are all scored up. So, do it now!!

I have a sqeaking noise from the front end. We thought it may be a u-joint, but the service center checked it out and could not find it. U-joints all checked out OK. Located in WI. The colder it gets, the...


Even if the joints appear to be OK, often they run dry and are rusted inside. Unfortunately you cannot see that unless you remove the axle and visually check them out.
You have universal joints in there? I thought they began using c/v joints right around 2000. Check that the brake pad sensors are not hitting the rotors as well that can make a squeaking noise.Before taking anything apart, try to determine which side the noise is on.

Loud whistling noise while driving.


Does the noise sound as though it is coming from either the front or rear axle and does the noise change as your speed increases. If so it sound as though your axle is whining requiring overhauled if really bad.Common problem
