Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Good morning, I collected a secondhand 96 jeep grand cherokee ltd with 110,000 miles on the clock, all is fine until you go round a round a bout or corner or any sharp turn, this is when you get this awful graunching sound from back wheel area, you can even feel the wheels drag not locking up, as if some-thing is gripping and releaseing!.I did have something similar on an early chevvi comaro which was cured by Lendrum and Hartman of London with some special fluid to the back axle, fault being something to do with limited slipped diff.Any help or assistants would be helpful. Thank you John Phillips

Check rear brake, axel and bearing, the problem is purely mechanic on rear back wheel. You must put your car on a bridge to fix it.

    The problem on your old Camaro, was probably on differential or transmission box, that is the reason why they fixed it by adding fluid to trans or differential.
    To know if is differential fluid problem, try locking/unlocking diff., and see if you can hear the noise the same.
    If you can hear grinding noise from wheel a more common case is when the noise is from wheel bearing or from a locked brake.

    If you want to check the differential fluid you need to access to the differential, which is located on the axle. There you find screw in the the middle. Remove the screw and check level.
    Fluid must get nearly at same level of the set screw hole.
    You fill the differential with gear oil, using a hand pump.
    You can take out old fluid by using a suction gun.

Why is there a beeping noise every 5 minutes or so while driving-


AS LONG AS YOUR CAR IS RUNNING FINE & HAS BEEN SERVICED RECENTLY YOU CAN ALTER THIS MESSAGE ON SCREEN TO STOP THE BEEPING, THE EASIEST WAY IS TO DISCONNECT BOTH THE + & - BATTERY LEADS & CONNECT THEM TOGETHER FOR AT LEAST 30 MINS, THIS WILL RESET THE JEEP'S MEMORY, CONNECT BACK THE LEADS & THEN WHEN YOU GET IN & START YOUR CAR THE DISPLAY BY THE GEARSHIFT WILL BE FLASHING - SET THE CLOCK BY KEEPING YOUR FINGER ON THE SET BUTTON FOR S FEW SECONDS UNTIL THE IST DIGIT BEGINS TO FLASH, THEN PRESS THE SET BUTTON UNTIL YOU REACH THE DESIRED HOUR, THEN PRESS THE SELECT BUTTON BELOW & THIS WILL MOVE YOU ON TO THE MINUTES, CONTINUE WITH THE ABOVE OPERATION UNTIL THE TIME & DATE HAVE BEEN SET, YOUR "SERVICE" SHOULD NOW BE RESET TO EITHER 7500 MILES OR 12500 MILES, I SERVICE MY 96 GRAND CHEROKEE MYSELF SO THIS IS MY "CHEAT" FOR THE SYSTEM & IT IS GUARANTEED TO WORK. BEST OF LUCK.

Have a P0740 code showing up every couple days on my 2001 Grand Cherokee LTD with 110,000 miles, but vehicle runs fine


That code tells you that there is a problem with the transmission torque converter or the circuit that controls it. Does the rpm drop down at about 45mph or does it remain the same? Also, if you tap the brake do the rpm's go up for a moment? (that verifies it was engaged)

Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Problems Wont shift


Tried changing the fluid? Often gummy deposits get gummier when cold and take a while to free up with temp increase. Of course, if you are good at it, you can rebuild it but I'd try that first. Generally I use lucas conditioner with B&M or Amsoil synthetic fluid in mine...seems to do the job.

Left directional light intermittent to plain out...


I was once a fleet manager with many Jeep Grand Cherokees 1999-2002. We had TREMENDOUS problem with REAR tailight housings. It seem the tailight/signal/back-up light circuitry is embedded in the plasticx of the housing. NO WAY to repair. Replaced with a new one from Jeep. Problem gone. ( at least until the other side went bad ) Not a guarranty, but it's a good chance it has the same problem.

All wheel drive v8 issues 96 Jeep Grnd Cherokee Ltd


Any all wheel drive will give less fuel miles.(compared to ones you engage as needed) The Chrysler v8 is a time proven engine, pretty much a copycat of a chevy with some changes to make it their own. Overall, I haven't heard any really bad stuff about them. If you look at the problems on this site, there seem to be fewer jeep probs than all other vehicles. (even though some problems are really weird!!!)
What you really need to see is the vehicles history to make sure it's been maintained and has not been back to a shop for the same thing over and over.
Good luck!
