SOURCE: 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes make a hissing noise

has your brake pedal seem to be stiffer than usual? the sound you hear is from the brake booster if it has a leak it will cause a noise but you would have a stiffer pedal because the booster is loosing vacuum.

Hopefully this will answer your question.

The redesigned WJ 1999 Grand Cherokee shared just 127 parts with its predecessor. The structure was stiffened by PorscheEngineering for sharper steering and lighter weight. The spare tire wasrelocated from the side of the cargo compartment to under the floor togreat relief of owners. The two heavy pushrod V8 engines were replaced by chrysler's first clean sheet V8 since the 60's (SOHC aluminium heads, plastic intake), Chrysler's then-new PowerTech. Although this engine produced less torquethan both previous V8s, it was lighter and got much better fuel economyand provided similar on road performance figures (the 23 gallon fueltank was replaced with one of a 20.5 gallon capacity). The Inline 6engine was also updated in 1999. 10 horsepower (7.5 kW) was added byredesigning the intake manifold. The manual transmission was dropped with this model.
While other Jeep vehicles used the Mopar 5 x 4.5 bolt circle, thiswas the first Jeep following the 1987 Chrysler buyout to receive awider bolt pattern — 5 x 5. The 5 x 5 bolt pattern (also 5 x 127 mm),although common to GM rear wheel drive vehicles and light dutytrucks/vans, has spread beyond its use with GM (and Ford with their 1973 to 1978 LTDs and Lincolns). Chrysler first used the 5 x 5 pattern on full-size half-ton Dodge Ram pickups and Dodge Ramcharger SUVs in 1986.
A notable feature available in this generation was the automatic four wheel drive option called Quadra-Drive II.With three viscous clutches, it was one of only a few four wheel drivesystems at the time with triple locking differentals, joining thecontemporary Mercedes Gelandewagen, Mercedes Unimog and Magna SteyrPinzgauer, and the only one of the four with fully automatic operation,although the axle differentials could not be manually locked like inthe other three vehicles.
The 45RFE and 545RFE automatic transmission in the WJ was notable. It included three planetary gearsets rather than the two normally used in a four-speed automatic. Thisgave it six theoretical speeds, and it would have been the firstsix-speed transmission ever produced in volume, but it was programmedto only use five of these ratios. Four were used for upshifts, with adifferent second gear for downshifts. Although five of the six ratioswere used, Chrysler decided to call it a "4-speed automatic". In 2001,the programming was changed to make use of all six ratios. Rather thanhave six forward gears, the transmission was programmed to act as afive-speed with the alternate second gear for downshifts. The RPM at70 miles per hour (110 km/h) on a 545RFE is 2000 rpm, 200 rpm less thanthe 45RFE programming. 1999 and 2000 model year WJ owners can havetheir 45RFE transmission's programming flashed to enable the extra gearas both transmissions are physically the same. The 42RE 4-speedautomatic remained the transmission for the Inline 6 engine. It was notchanged from the previous model Grand Cherokee's.

SOURCE: 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Malfunction light came on. What is the cause?

You can do one of three things.1. buy a scan tool 2. go to a dealer and pay to have the codes read and diagnosed 3. go to your local parts chain to have it read for free. (call first to verify). The code will tell you what system is malfunctioning and what the malfunction is. The parts store option is my choice, because you can also get the part to fix it if needed and you are not out the $ for diagnostics, nor did you need an appt to get it in.

Your belt may be glazed over or loose also you may have a tentioner bearing going bad.A good visual check will help determine the cause.If you squirt the idler in the center with a little wd40 while it is chirping and the noise stops you will know the problem.

My grand cherokee jeep is making a humming sound from the defferential. what can cause this sound


The differential can become noisy if the fluid level is low, an internal bearing is failing or the gears are worn. Check the level first and then explore the other possibilities later if that is good.
Be aware that noises can be transmitted from other components so check the transfer case level as well.

This noise is more likely caused by the iiner constant velocity joint. When turning the axle makes a franction of an angle in which no perpendicular to the ground. You'll gonna need to have it check as there is a possiblity that the wheel drum or axle assembly might come off when driving in high speed to avoid accident.

It makes a chirping noise all the time


Chipping can be caused from a bad bearing that needs to be replaced or lubricated. It could be inside the alternator. power steering pump, idler pulley, Whater pump, AC compressor, and so on.
Use a long handle such as a broom stick and place the stick to each item that is belt driven. Place it at a secure place such as the housing so the stick does not get near the belt. As the engine is running place your ear at the other end of the stick. This works as a Stethoscope same as a doctor uses. The chirpping will be hear the loudest at one of the belt drive accessories during your testing

My 97 jeep grand cherokee makes a chirping sound under front


The noise and the light may or may not be related. The noise may be the wear indicator on the brake pads touching the rotor (they are supposed to do that when brakes are worn) The abs light triggers off a wheel on the axle end. If you have a bad joint on the axle, it could be noisy and causing the wheel to not have the proper clearance to the abs sensor. You really need to take the wheel and brake assembly off and carefully inspect everything. Make sure all abs sensor wires are undamaged...it doesn't have to be at the same wheel that's chirping.

2004 jeep grand cherokee limited makes a noise


Sounds like a loose belt, Depending on what engine etc., it may need to be changed or if you have adjustment, tightened. When adjustment or replacement done, is a good time to check all pulleys. If your not up to it, an adjustment should not cost too much, few minutes work in most cases, if belt needs changing, price of belt & a little more labor involved.
