Can a bad deferential cause steering issue on 2002 envoy


I am assuming your mechanic was refering to the front differential and your vehicle is 4x4. If the vehicle is in 4x4 all the time you may notice a " hopping " feeling on corners from the front wheels. Otherwise, the differential should not cause steering issues. What type of problem is the vehicle experiencing that concerns you and would lead your mechanic to assess a bad diff?

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model


The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4

Seems like rear brakes apply themselves


First make sure that your tires are the same size and age. To the best of my knowledge the abs system does not apply the brakes, it modulates the brake pressure. I'd look at the transfer case as a possible problem, especially if it has full time four wheel drive.

Key won't turn in 2002 Jeep Liberty, can't start. Battery seems fine (at least enough power for clock, dome lights, and power locks), and vehicle operated normally a few hours earlier. Key simply won't...


put the key in the ignition and tap the key farther into the cylinder and turn. should work. seems like a chrysler problem! a handy tow truck driver showed me this solution last night. you can have the cylinder replaced if this keeps happening or just keep a handy-dandy whacking object in your center console for just such an occassion!

Esp/bas light on, steering wheel off center after off roading


If your steering wheel is off center, this can cause the problem. Luckily this is very easy to fix -- you can do so even if you have little to no experience working on your vehicle.
1. Park the vehicle with the wheels facing straight ahead (drift forward until you are moving in a straight line). Don't worry about the steering wheel position. 2. Locate the steering drag link -- the diagonal rod coming from the bottom of the steering arm to the top of the passenger side steering knuckle (on the axle near the tire) 3. Loosen the two bolts on the rotating adjustment collar on this link. I believe these are 13mm. 4. Rotate the collar one way about two or three turns, check the steering wheel to ensure that the "Jeep" logo is perfectly horizontal. If it's not, continue rotating the collar (or move it in the opposite direction) until the wheel is centered. 5. Tighten down the nuts on the drag link adjuster. 6. Take her for a test drive and let me know how it worked!

It could be the rack bushings - take a look and see if they're worn (it shouldn't be hard to see them with the car up in the air). If they are, they won't anchor the rack as they should, so some of the notchiness could be play in the bushings as the rack itself shifts while you turn the wheel.
