#310 of 729 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 Cyl.
Nov 11, 2007 (2:41 pm)
I am new here and am thankful for a place to talk.
My vehicle has a noise that sounds so much like worn pulley bearings that I actually replaced the serpentine belt(thankfully), the idler pulley and installed a new tensioner. Yes, the noise is still there, but the parts I replaced were so lousy, it was probably a good thing.
The noise, as listened to through a piece of rubber hose(poor mans stethoscope?) appears to be coming from the top of the motor--alongside the head. It just continues to sound like a severly worn pulley, and seeing that nothing is moving outside the engine at that location, I am looking for some clue about valve adjustment or the like. I say adjustment as that just sounds less expensive.
I would appreciate any insight.

#317 of 729 Grand Cherokee with engine noise
Dec 04, 2007 (7:20 am)
I'm looking at a 1999 Grand Cherokee with V-8 4.7 liter engine with 103k on it. The vehicle is in perfect condition but my only concern is there is a slight ticking noise coming from the engine.It's really sounds like tick tick tick and you notice it when you start the vehicle and a little when you start out driving and then it seems to go away.If you come to a stop you don't hear it but when you start to accelerate you hear it again for a few seconds and then it's gone again.This vehicle was owned by a female doctor and it seems to be very well taken care of and she's selling it at a good price but I can't afford to buy it if the engine is going to need replaced.She told me that a mechanic told her it sounded like a lifter and she was up front about it as I knew there was an engine noise before I drove the vehicle.
I have to give her my answer today as there's someone else who's intersted and I just don't know what to do.Any help is greatly appreciated.

I own a 4wd 99 Cherokee that I purchased from the original owner. They special ordered it in order to get the 5 speed. Can anyone tell me how I can find out how many 5-speed 99 Cherokees were built?
