Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

3 Answers

From speeds of about 30mph to 40 mph i can hear a constant whinning, grinding type noise, it continues as speed increases but not as prominant, more prominant between speeds indicated above. Thought at first it was bearings, but garage says no, was advised it could be tyre noise, so i tried on differant road surfaces, same sound regardless of surface. I am at my tether here, rely on the vehicle totally, 2005 automatic crd grand cherokee, any assistance greatly appreciated.

I'd suggest you try finding a desolate, safe place to get up to a speed where the noise is present, then shift the transmission to neutral and let off the throttle to see if the noise goes away, changes pitch, or remains. That could help you narrow down which direction to continue your search. If the noise goes away, it could be related to the transmission or the engine. If the noise remains, it could be related to the output end of the transmission, the driveshaft u-joints, the carrier bearing, or something in the rear end. Also, if you can find someone with a Steelman Chassis Ear, you can mount multiple microphones in several suspect locations under the Jeep and switch between microphones to see where the noise seems loudest. Then move the microphones closer to that area, and keep up the process until you pinpoint the source of the noise.

SOURCE: Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8

Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.

You can check fluid level by removing the rubber plug in the cover. Fluid is full when on level ground, it is just at the edge of the hole (or very close) if you are already getting noises out of there, you can remove the cover and inspect gears for wear or breakage. If you find a large amount of metal debris in the lube it tells you something bad is going on back there. Although rebuildable, it's not a home job...requires exact settings in order to operate properly. You can find good units far cheaper than even a gearset costs in any scrapyard. to match ratio, count the teeth on the ring gear and the pinion gear. the replacement MUST have the exact same number. Before swapping diffs, check all back there to make sure noise is not from somewhere else.

The Wheel Bearing(s) need to be replaced. They should be bolt-on assembly and are bolted from the back of the steering knuckle. It is easy to remove and replace. Buy your bearing assembly(ies) from an auto parts store versus the dealer to save you a lot of money.

Exhaust touching under somewhere when engine torque increased, Egr tube, or anti-backfire valve at rear of engine etc. Other possibilities, Motor mount (especially opposite side) , transmission mount. Have you tried brake torque to see how much engine shifts? Once your up to higher speeds, less torque required to push that Big thing down the road. ha ha.
What type of noise is it, if you can describe? Have U-joints been checked?

2000 Stratus, 2.4 automatic. A loud humming noise


hi this sounds like you have a wheel bearing that has gone u/s the way to find out which one is to individually jack each wheel up and spin the wheel first you might hear a grinding noise, if not you can pull the bottom of the wheel and push the top in a rocking motion top to bottom, left to right if you get a large amount of movement then this will also point out which wheel it is....hope that helps

2002 dodge durango whinning noise will your


Thank you for getting back to me. I would like you to check your transmission fluid. start the engine and let it warm up at idle speed for about 15 min and check the fluid. It sounds like you do not have enough in it, there for the whining noise with increase of speed since your transmission is speeding up with the rate of your vehicle. If this does not help and the problem persist please let me know. If the noise you were hearing was coming from the u joints of the vehicle it would not make a whining noise with increase of speed. The u joints will only make a noise when they are going bad when the vehicle is shifted into any gear from the shifter( EX: park to drive, park to reverse ECT.)

Heater fan is making noise. Sounds like motor bearings


This may or may not help you.If the sound you hear is a constant whirring/grinding sound it may be the fan motor.If the fan takes a few seconds longer to speed up when you increase the speed it could still be the fan.If the sounds you hear are clicking sounds and they get quicker or slower as you play with the fan,it may well be leaves or junk in the fan housing.Its a common thing.Hope this helps you either way
