SOURCE: Jeep Liberty Clicking Noise

Check the wheel bearings. Run the car and check where the noise is coming from. the wheel bearings make a gravelly, clicking noise if the bearing is bad. Lift the car and move the wheels up and down , to the sides etc. Listen or if the wheel moves , your bearing may be bad.

SOURCE: oil & filter change

Oil is one of the most important items inside your engine. It has a dual keeps internal components from touching each other and wearing out, it also serves as a secondary cooling system.
Oil also carries away debris and moves it to the oil filter, holding smaller particles in suspension to prevent deposits.
Your vehicle is like a person that has a bad kidney and must go for dyalisis periodically. If not, bad stuff in their blood will kill them.
In all the years I've been in the auto industry, I have never seen anyone that had an engine failure of any kind from changing their oil too often. I have seen hundreds that did not change their oil with disasterous results.
Manufacturers have attempted to capitalize on the fact that the oil products we have today are far better than those we had years ago.What customer would not want a vehicle that was maintenence free? Oil filters used today are a bit better than older ones, but are also smaller. They do not have the holding capacity needed to operate properly over extended change intervals. When full, oil bypasses the filter and continues along through the engine.
These are the facts...Now here is what I think.
If you intend to keep your vehicle for any period of time, use the best oil available (I prefer synthetics) and change the oil filter at least every 4,000 miles. Then, you could follow mfg change schedule with some confidence. With a good synthetic, you could actually run all the way to 10,000miles with a "halftime" filter change. If using conventional oils, I would prefer to see oil changed every 4K or slightly less, along with filter. Don't forget...the dealer only needs your vehicle to last as long as the warranty, and actually needs it to fail after that so they can sell you a new one.
You would likely want it to last far longer!!! This applies to all fluids...coolant, brake fluid diff lube and trans oil...change more often and everything lasts longer!!!
Good luck with your car!!!

Where are the lube points on the chassis and suspension for Compass 4x4

Most parts from the factory come sealed nowadays. I would look at the upper and lower ball joints- tie rod ends and see if there are any fittings for a grease gun to be applied. If not then you have nothing to worry about!

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming

check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced
