Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

3 Answers

I have a 2000 Jeep grand Cherokee. Can the bearing and crank shaft be replaced without having to replace the entire motor? They are telling me I need a new motor, but when I told them i couldnt come up with the money, they suggested that maybe I just need to replace bearings and crank shaft. But.....before they were telling me I had some "metal shavings" in my motor now. There were some very tiny groves in the crank shaft. And the bearings were looked like they had burnt motor oil on them. The Jeep was parked because I heard a loud knocking, when they pulled the oil pan this is what they found. I think he is just wanting my money......

Yes the crankshaft and the main bearings can be replaced w/out changing out the motor. You can probably get a motor out of a wrecked Jeep and have it installed for under 1,000.00 and have it done quicker than replacing the crankshaft, and main bearings.

    I am a single lady. I cant afford to have a motor put in, can you give me an idea of how much it might cost to put bearings and crankshaft in it. Time in not as much a factor as money for me.
    What about the metal shavings in the motor, does that sound logical.
    Thank you so much for your quick response.
    When he first told me, he never told me I could just replace the bearing and crankshaft.

    Your help is appreciated so much!!

Thats a tough spot, but if the crank was damaged due to low oil pressure, it has to at least be checked and machined, you can put over sized bearings after journals have been turned...It might be a good idea to look around for another engine, since they are around-call local junkyards and check local craigslist auto parts listings, ya never know...a used engine, in good condition might be cheaper than doing a crank and bearings, with better results too-ask if they are going to remove the engine to do the crank, if they are just get another engine.

Hey.. ok firstly yes you can just replace the bearings,, they wanted to replace the motor cause its just a lot easier and they make more money.

the metal shavings was or actually is from the bearing.. so yes changing the bearings will fix the problem .. and yes they wanted money thats why they said a new motor, but as u said to expensive they decided to do the right thing instead.

however a new motor would be a better way to go but changing the bearings will fix work.

    Thank you. i really felt he was trying to take advantage of me. i just paid him over 1,000.00 to redo the top part of the motor ( new valve job, new belts and etc. He thought he saw another couple of thousand coming.
    Now I have hope!!!

SOURCE: how hard to replace crank shaft

I hate to say this , but since metal shavings were found in the oil a total engine tear down is needed for proper cleaning and parts inspection/replacment in other words an engine rebuild also you need to know what caused the problem to begin with. but if you just want to replace the crank you will need to remove the engine and remove the oil pan to gain access to the crankshaft.

None of my pulleys will turn on my jeep Cherokee larado


with the belt on or off? If when off, anything not turning means the bearings are probably frozen. The units would need replacement. Its a coincidence that all are not turning at the same time. CHECK CRANK & CAMS WITHOUT THE BELT. IF THOSE ARE N/G YOUR STARTING TO LOOK AT A MOTOR REPLACE OR SERIOUS REPAIR.

Can u replace the head gaskets on a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 liter V8 without dropping the engine?


ruacowboysfa, Yes, you can do this without dropping the engine. The only problem you may have is removing and retorquing the head bolts because of the room constraints at the back of the engine compartment. Good luck with this.

2001 Jeep grand cherokee motor knock 4.7 motor


First, if the noise is from the upper part of the engine and is more of a tapping than a knock, likely you have a problem in the valvetrain, most often a bad lifter or worn rocker arm. If the noise is low, deep inside, the noise is from a bearing. This is generally accompanied by lower than normal oil pressure. Regardless of the underlying cause, correcting the cause will not stop the knock. To do that correctly, the engine needs to be removed and all crankshaft bearings and the crankshaft itself need to be replaced (crank can sometimes be "undercut" and thicker bearing shells can be used depending upon the amount of wear.) If caught very early, sometimes only one bearing can be replaced in-car, but in 99% of all cases I have ever seen, most will fail again, sometimes more severely if done this way.

1996 jeep grand chrokee turns over will not start, replaced cam shaft censor and ECM, and coil. distibuter cap looks bad has some white dust inside and contacts burnt. could it be that?


If you did not replace the CRANK sensor on the back side of the motor this most likely is the problem and a very common one at that.this controls spark and injector pulse,unlike the cam sensor which just shows when #1 cilyder is up.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2wd and the driver side rear axle seal is leaking; do I have to press the bearing off the axle to replace the seal?


Yes you do.It would be a good idea to replace the bearing and the seal at the same time.Reason being is that 9 times out of 10 the bearing gets damaged in the proccess of being pressed off.
