Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with less than 44,000 miles on it. I have been told I need a new left wheel bearing and a new transfer case. I was getting a thumping, knocking, grinding kind of noise. I am told it will cost $2700 by the dealer. My family seems to think it is a CV joint and that I should get a second opinion. I don't have the time or the inclination to go running around to another mechanic. Any thoughts!

Get the second opinion. The difference could be $2500. Never trust a dealer especially if you have suggested what you think is wrong. They will repair that even if it doesn't need it just because you mentioned it. Dealers are hurting right now because of the economy and are screwing everybody.

My Jeep has 76,000 miles on it and I was recently told it needs a transfer case flush. Does that sound right?


The Transfer case should be flushed and new fluid added every 30,000 miles, so yes you are overdue.

Service Engine light on, code is misfire..repaired 4 times, keeps happening, mechanic mystified never saw before...also "groans" going around corners/while turning, kept changing transmission...


Oh, if the car 'groans' around corners, many times this is a wheel bearing going out, not the transmission, especially if you had it rebuilt. One can check the wheel bearing for excessive play by jacking up the front end and wiggling the wheel at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions and 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions.

What did the technician replace for the misfire code?

Transfer case rear output seal leaks


Likely either the shaft has a wear scar on it that's too deep for even a new seal to compensate for or the bearing that supports the shaft is worn. Other possibility is that the same tech is installing it dry every time he replaces it....you need to put grease on the seal lip so it does not self-destruct before the normal lube can reach it.

The 4 wheel drive on my 2000 jeep grand cherokee


The ticking noise is most likely your tranfer case chain. the chains in this case...overtime....will stretch, causing the chain to have enough slack the hit the bottom of the case.

Clunking sound in 4 wheel drive


Could also be a jammed transfer case linkage.. I had the same problem and it was the linkage getting jammed up and not pushing all the way and only half catching the sprocket. $10 part *crosses fingers*

93' Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo brakes while steering


If the diff is really low it may be overheating and binding but it would have to be really low or have a mechanical problem to begin with.
Tires can cause binding because different manufacturers tires with the same #s have a different diameter (I know they should all be the same but they are not). This should cause problems if you have all wheel drive or are using 4 wheel drive (both ends of vehicle will be trying to go different speeds...Same holds true for different ratio diffs)If you have little experience with this stuff have someone go over it for you, It will cost less than blowing up the transfer case or something!!!

Transfer case knocking


These transfer cases do not have plastic pumps. Do have the transfer case looked at by Jeep tech, it could be as simple as an adjustment on the lever.
