SOURCE: 1994 jeep cherokee linkage

Problem sounds like an internal pressure problem not a cable. If you are able to shift into all gears using the shifter, the linkage is being moved properly. It cannot "come out of gear" by way of the shifter.
In reality, if you were able to manually put the shift lever on the transmission into any particular gear without any shift cable at all attached, it would stay in that selected position forever till you got under there and moved it again. Depending upon what transmission you are using you may have a throttle cable running between the trans and throttle lever on the throttle body...this may have something to do with your problem but would also affect shift points. Any electronic shift controls are also suspect at this point. have it checked by a competent shop. In not being there myself, I can only offer my thoughts on what I would test going into the problem...after testing a better evaluation can be made. Good luck...Hope it's something simple.

SOURCE: steering loose on 1994 chevy 4x4

check the idler arm and pitman arms
a quik and dirty way to check for play in the front end
is to have an assistant rock the steering wheel back and forth while feel an all the joints in the steering gear for play.
there will likely be more than one loose joint.

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

SOURCE: Loose / wandering steering. Ball joints are new.

That's a classic sign of a loose steering gear box on that generation Grand Cherokee. Have your jeep checked out for play, in the gearbox.

Just bought a 94 jeep grand Cherokee all wheel drive and it is making a loud noise and wanders all over the road . what can the problem be


yes the tire size is very important! however assuming everything is the correct equipment the wandering problem is likely the u-joints in the front axles binding. If this is the case the front axle u-joints need to be replaced. This is very common on 4x4 vehicles with solid front axles. Good luck!

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD with loose steering


Did you tell the shop to do this or did they find something wrong with those parts? "wheel bushings" ??? Are you talking about hub bearings or ball joints? Bad ball joints can give you wandering or a really bad shake (called death wobble). Has anyone checked the steering box to be sure it hasn't started to tear off the chassis? Is it internally worn? There are too many parts up there that can make a noise for me to comment intelligently about that. If there, I'd need to test drive it. Check the steering damper (sideways shock that attaches to the steering linkage. that can allow wander over bumps. Also, adding alignment caster (more than factory setting) will tend to stabilize the front end. I run way more than factory setting on all of mine. It can wear the steering pump, but it only takes about a year off it's normal life if even that much.
So, you may get nine years from it instead of ten.
I hope at least one item I've mentioned helps you. If you don't understand any part of this or have a question, just ask!!
