Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 4.0L. Just recently bought and there's a popping noise in the front and when turning sharply it's like the wheels lock and the jeep refuses to move and it's also recently started cutting off when turning or going around curves. Any ideas as to what that might be?

    Yes in reverse the sound and motion of not wanting to move is a lot worse. Would that also cause the Jeep to cut off?

    So far yes. It won't do it every time after the first couple of turns so I guess that would explain it. I thought it might have been something wrong with the 4 wheel drive but I will try replacing both axles, I'm sure they'll need it anyways. Thanks so much for all your help.

Sounds like a bad cv joint in one (or both) of the front axles. is the popping sound more prevalent when in reverse, with the wheel turned? if so, i'd assume that it is a bad cv joint and one or both front axles will need to be replaced.

    i suppose it could, since it's binding the driveline. does the vehicle only shut off when turning?
