Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Thank you! I appreciate your advice and love the yellow lab pup :) Hypothetically, wouldn't I have to get a new rear end once I was stranded anyhow? How dangerous is driving the car and stripping the spider gears are we really talking here? Frankly spending $2000 on the jeep is not an option right now. So short of driving it just to the grocery store and back (thankfully public transportation is great in the DC Metro area) is there a way I can scrimp on the estimate?

Well to be honest I was thinking that this may be about right, but without actually seeing the damage and knowing what has to be replaced, it would be really impossible to make an exact estimate, its just that now a days these parts have gone through the roof, so I am not surprised at any figure,. In answer to whether it is dangerous to drive, I don't think so other than a complete lock up. The spider gears don't concern me as much as the ring and pinion. You are right if used for errands, no telling how long it could run, you live in the city, where I live (25miles to town), I may have a problem with this sympton.

My 1999 Toyota 4 Runner wouldn't start recently

You either have a defective battery or the battery cable or cables have acid intrusion that has "wicked" inside the cable and this causes a bad connection, the only fix is to replace the cable or cables, this problem is mostly limited to the positive battery cable because of the current flow direction. So 1st have the battery tested and see what it shows, almost any of the many discount auto parts stores will test the battery for free.

my car left me stranded in the mountains because of the anti-theft device. I ended up in the dealers, paying a lot, but they changed the housing of the steering column by the ignition where it supposedly caused a short and wouldn't allow the car to start. That was 2 yrs ago and it is acting up again.
