My Grand Cherokee sounds like a go cart and I think there must be a hole or something in the exhaust. People have told me it is in the exhaust manifold. Is this an expensive fix?

Hi if its coming from the manifold then its just going to be a case of getting new gaskets these cost next to nothing and should only cost an hours labour to fit so it wont cost much at all to have this put right.

im in uk so the gaskets here would cost about 5 pound each and about 50 pound to fit

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

    So I just got off the phone with local auto repair places and they are telling me it will cost at least $500. They said at the very least I am looking at 4 hours of labor plus parts.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.7 V-8. It burns oil aprox 1 Qt a week. The driver told me she sees white smoke from the exhaust when the A/C is on. I did not think the problem was related to...

I think, the bearing of the A/C unit jam and putting extra load on the engine or the belt that connects to the engine has dried out. Logically, A/C has no direct connection with the engine exhaust.

A sputter sound when i turn my jeep on also it

Which engine? The 4.0 liter inline 6 has a long standing problem with cracked exhaust manifolds. I would crawl underneath when the engine and exhaust pipes are cool and check for holes. Might a, O2 sensor plug gotten knocked loose during the oil change? The engine computer uses the O2 sensors to help set fuel ratio. If they aren't working right the exhaust could smell stronger.

I replaced all four tires on the truck and there is still a roaring sound on the back or middle of the truck it sound like a little go- cart or the muffler has a hole in it, I do not know.

Check your muffler of course, but also check the fluid level in the rear differential, the bearings on both sides of the rear tires and the U-joints. If you only have 2 wheel front wheel drive check the bearings on both rear tires.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee running very loud

I would assume that there is something wrong with your exhaust again. Most likely its the exhuast donut gaskit that goes to the cat converter.
