Jeep Grand Cherokee Maintenance and Repair



  • confused21confused21 Posts: 1
    I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Bought new rotors, and after putting them on the front wheels wouldn't turn.

    I checked the sizes and the "stock" rotors are 1/2" (roughly) smaller in diameter. Auto Zone and a belvy of other places cannot help me. Maybe someone here has a part number or knows what they should be?

    The "stock" rotors given as replacements were 3115's (305mm), the old rotors appear to be 265-275mm. Same hat size and overall dimensions as the 3115's, just smaller diameter.

    We have searched and opened 20 boxes at Auto Zone (love those folks there) with no luck.

    Can anyone help?

    I have a 1996 4x2 Grand Cherokee Laredo. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a squeak coming from the rear only when I am driving forward. It does not do it in reverse. As the weeks go by it has gotten allot louder and I can not tell where it is coming from. As far as I can tell, it is coming from the rear and is loud. Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    The "99" through "04" GC has a known fault with the heater blend air doors, especially the automatic temperature control heaters, you may be experiencing this problem, symptoms are no heat on passenger side or drivers side or maybe heat on one and not the other, this is an expensive fix if it is the problem as the dash has to be pulled, but not all is lost, there is a guy on ebay who sells a fix kit you can install from under the dash it works and fixes problem for a fraction of the dealer cost, hope this helps, has an article about this problem.

    IU have a 98 Grand Cherokee that keeps blowing front diffs. Two in the last two weeks! I also have a 94 Cherokee scout that Im about to junk. Would it be poss ible to install the transfer case and front diff from the scout to the
    grand. I really hate the full time 4 wheel drive on the Grand to start with! I was in a pinch and got the Grand Cherokee for a good price paid $2000 and now have an additional $3000 into it. I was just going to put another junk yard dif in it and sell it but I dont want to screw someone else.

    I also have a '98 GCLtd and I removed the front drive completely. As I only use it as a road car I didn't see the need for 4x4. Take out both front drive axles but retain the stub axles to the wheels. Remove the prop shaft from between the diff and transfer case. You then have a perfectly good road car, with perhaps a little understeer, with less front end noise and no prancing about when starting off.

    My 99 has 94 factory parts on it. Found out the hard way like u.

    Thanks for that might actually do that. DOes your transher box not work now? my transfer box is making some noise? if doing that wil help might do that. Is it just as easy to make it into front wheel drive, as its better in snow.

    I am having the same problem.If you go left or right does it stop? if you turn left and it stops it means the problem is on that side and it could be a bearing. if it sfront its cheaper than the rear one. Also might be the diff. have you noticed any different with performance.

    hope this helps.
  • I have exactly the same problem with my 2004 Jeep GC. I bought it 2 years ago & noticed the same thing as soon as I drove off the Patrick Pontiac lot. I took it back to them & naturally, they couldn't find anything. Since then I had Elmer's, my regular mechanic, diagnose the steering column replacement and tell me to take it back to Patrick because it's a $1000 job. I did this, & again, they did not find this problem. I don't regret buying my Jeep; I regret who I bought it from. I'm going to Vision for 3rd opinion and then most likely will have my trustworthy guys at Elmer's fix it. Good Luck

    hi all, I have a 2000 cherokee classic and it drives so well but between 80 and 100 km/h the front wheels vibrates quite much but more than a 100 or less than 80 I feel no vibrations at all , what do you think is wrong? and what should I do?
  • trek87trek87 Posts: 49
    this kind of vibration at a specific speed usually indicates that you need to get your tires balanced. i recommend a computerized road-force balance if your shop has one. good luck!

    Does anyone know if you can pop the glass assembly (mirror and frame) out of the mirror shell? If so, how do you do it? I'm trying not to have a painting event.

    Hello all,

    I have purchased a used 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0l 6 cyl with 132,000 miles on it.I have been having problems with it shutting off on me,have noticed that the oil pressure on the dashboard appears to stay on or near 0.The only time that it will go up to the halfway mark is if i am driving but once i come to a stop it goes back down again.Please help me.

    I have purchased a New Oil pressure switch ,Fuel Pressure Regulator,Complete Fuel Pump Assembly,Oil Pump Assembly,Oil Pan Gasket,Have replaced the Oil,Oil Filter on it twice.

    I am in need of a tune up,will try to do that within the week.I would appreciate any help on this matter as i need this vehicle to get to work or to assist me in finding work where there isn't any public transportation available.

    I just purchase a 1999 Jeep Cherokee, 6 cil and 2 WD. The transmission only moves the vehicle when rev up at high RPMs. Can anyone provide input as to the possible causes of this problem before I pay someone to rebuild the transmission?

    Also, I look under the transmission and the drain plug has a “DII” written on it. Does this mean the transmission uses Dextron II ATF? I read in other posts and in the Auto zone website that 1999 Jeep model uses ATF-4 with the 30RH transmission or Mercon V, Castrol domestic multi vehicle ATF, and Castrol high mileage ATF with the AW-4 transmission.

    Lastly, is there any way to drain the torque converter without any machinery?

    Thank you all for your advice,

    These trans have some computer control exerted on them. Try this. Take the negative battery cable off. let set 5 min or so. reconnect. put key in switch and with your foot on the brake turn key(not to start)--on off, on off, on off, release the foot brake. start engine and see if trans engages a low RPM. The steps you have performed cause a reset of the computer---it has cured problems in many instances.

  • Have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee with V-8, 318 cid.
    (5.2 L). Can not find location of the oxygen sensor to replace it. Can anyone tell me where it is. Is access from top or under side? Can I get to it without other parts removal?
    Thanks for any help.

    96 grand Cherokee, I had the coolant sensor replaced and now I need to know how to reset the panel.
  • smokebeesmokebee Posts: 30
    Should be located in front exhaust pipe near where it ties into exhaust manifold. A secondary downstream sensor will be located after the cat converter.
