My 96 grand cherokees serpentine belt squeals at startup once in a while then goes away.Is it a pulley possibly seizing?


First, the belt could be loose, because the loose belt does this. Second, the belt could be worn out. A worn-out belt will also squeal, as the rubber will harden and slip. You should be looking at your belt two or three times a year to check for cracks inside, you'll need a strong light and maybe a hand mirror.
The reason it squeals is the alternator is recharging the battery because of the electricity that was removed from it when you started the car.
Be blessed.

My bottom pulley squeals real bad i dressed the belts and they stopped for a lil bit, the belt is snug. is there anything i can do to quiet the pulley on the bottom of the motor?this is a 97 jeep grand...


Is it possible that the belt tensioner is the cause for the squeal or possibly the belt itself needs to be replaced. Although not impossible, the lower pulley usually is not the cause for belt squeal, unless it is damaged.

99 Grand Cherokee. Started with locking or binding with loud clunks. After long drive, rear diff was smoking and was replaced. Just drove it and after shifting into all time 4wd and then back to 2wd did it...


Sounds like a bad transfer case. Generally what you experienced is caused by a tire mis-match but can also happen by itself sometimes. GC's use a fluid coupler that is supposed to engage 4wd when tires begin to slip. (coupler is pretty much the same as the mechanical clutch unit on your fan, only larger) If the coupler fails, symptoms like yours happen.

Just bought a 1999 4wd jeep grand cherokee with 215k miles on it, what is some things i should do/replace to this jeep?


Check all the fluids and make sure they are good. i.e. diffs. oil, transmission, coolant, transfer case fluid, air filter. Use high mileage oil. Check the belt for cracks, usually it will start squealing a bit when it needs to be replaced. Tightening it will not help.

96 grand cherokee 4wd doesn't work


try lubricating all your linkages and always make sure all 4 tires are the same diameter. this makes shifting in and out a lot easier. you are shifting it on the fly right?? not stopped?

IT WOULDN'T GO OVER 20 THEN IT PICKED UP TO 50. THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON KNOW IT'S OFF BUT THE LIGHTS AND INTERIOR LIGHTS WERE FLASHING OFF AND ON. THE CAR WON'T START NOW, I CAN JUMP IT BUT IT WON'T HOLD...


I had the same problem with my 96 grand cherokee limited a while back, when the mechanic checked it out he said it was a sensor. He changed the sensor then it worked fine for about a couple of days until it happened again.
Then the mechanic checked it out again and saw that the alternator was not longer working properly. He said that the battery is what holds the power to start the car and somehow charge the alternator which later charges the battery back, this happens back and forth. Long story short, got the alternator fixed and have had no problem with the car since december.
