Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport
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.
