Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

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 again temporarily! Driving over ice feels like tires lock up and slide. After loud clunk it returns to normal. Transfer case???

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.

Why does my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo rear tires lock up when driving or turning


If both tires stop, the car cant move, anyway! If you turn to one side and the inner wheel seams as it stops, maybe the you need to replace the clutch's in the read differential. The rear axle has two clutch packages that look the rear axle if one wheel rotates faster then the other side. It's also known as a limited slip differential, but on a JGC the axle has this clutch packs that avoid any slip in the diff. If these packs are worn out you need to replace them.
If it happens, try to roll back some feet and drive straight forward. If both wheels are rotating normal, replace this clutch's. If that don't work, remove the wheels, open the brake drums and look for broken brake shoes, loose springs or worn out bearings. Lift your car and try to rotated each wheel by hand and feel if there are anything that blocks turning. After half a turn, the clutch in the diff. will close, so the other side need to turn the opposite direction and you will find it harder to rotate the wheel. If it blocks complete... replace the clutch. Make sure that you fill the diff with the right amount oil and a special additive called "friction modifier". Don't forget this modifier, because your new clutch will be burned in minutes.

When I put my 2005 jeep grand cherokee in reverse and turn at the same time it clunks in the rear end, the service 4 wheel drive light came on and the service electric brake system light came on


I have the same vehicle, with the same issue. I had put the car on a rack and lifted it to pin point the cause of the clunk when shifting from park to reverse or reverse to drive. I found that the front diff mounts were grenaded, meaning they needed to be replace bad. with these mounts being bad it was causing the front diff housing to slam the frame up and down when shifting from park or reverse to drive. this is pretty expensive to fix, your talking $160 in parts and $540 in labor. I also had the service 4WD warning display on my dash cluster, i had the code read. It came up as a bad solenoid in the rear diff. this is about $200 parts and labor to fix. Also, dont know how many miles are on your jeep but if you've ever sub-merged your axles under water or if your over 60,000 miles you need to replace your gear oil in the front diff, rear diff and transfer case. This is a little costly to have a mechanic do as well because you're supposed to use synthetic gear oil. For a shop to do it you're looking at $360.

It seems as though one of your front drive axle universals has failed and locked up. The other possibility would be a dry steering knuckle. Thank you, Dana

Front end and rear end differential


The 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee was prone to bad diff bearings because they changed the plant where they were made. The new plant used inferior materials. The only way to fix it is to replace and set the diff clearences.

99 Jeep GC Brake Lock


todays sports utility vehicles are equiped with a proportioning valve. they are usualy located at the rear of the vehicle. this valve regulates the flow of brake fluid to the calipers. most suv`s have a ride control arm on them that is linked to the rear suspension to apply more braking force to the rear wheels in a harsh or sudden stop. if this valve is bad or malfunctioning even body roll can redirect brake fluid to the rear wheels causing them to lock up., hope this info helps
