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!

My 2004 Monte Carlo SS runs loud and it never did before. It's loud at low and high speeds, but seems to sound worse at low speeds. I do need a front end alignment (the car drifts to the left); would...


that depends on if you think the noise is coming from the motor, or the actual road noise that comes with driving , its probably the same at both speeds but sine you have less air and outside noise,, you hear it more at lower speeds. does it make the same noise when started but not moving? if you answer that yes, then its something else besides road noise, if it is no, then get your front end checked, it could be anything from a bad alignment to a bad wheel bearing, or bad brake ,

I just bought this car and it seems like it has really loud road noise, are they all like this? I wouldn't think so. My last car was a 2001 Buick Park Avenue and alot quieter. What might be the problem?


hi.

they are NOT all like that. mine certainly isn't.

the most common cause of excessive road noise is the wrong tyre pressure.

i normally run mine on 32 psi on the front and 34 psi on the rear

i have had problems in the past with some tyre tread patterns causing road noise on particular types of road surface.

check the tyre pressures first.

if the noise persists, feel free to ask for more ideas and solutions

Grinding noise in front end


Hi
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

99 Silverado 4-wheel drive not engaging


It does not seem that sufficient diagnosis was done. No, you cant give a specific diagnosis like that without tearing unit down. It's likely that they told you the most common failure and left it at that. Likely there is a problem with your unit...I think this becomes more of a trust issue than a mechanical one. A second opinion from an independent reputable shop may help but either way, you need to have it fixed. In not using it much, it makes me wonder how it got worn.
good luck
