#143 of 448 Engine squealing on Jeep Cherokee Sport
May 16, 2007 (1:30 pm)
I've got a 1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4 that's been squealing for about 3 months, i originally thought that it was the belt b/c it really only did it when it was wet or it rained. now it's doing it all the time. i then thought it was my water pump b/c it was starting to almost over heat. i put some coolant in and i'm no longer having the overheating issue but it's still squeaking. could it just be the bearing on the water pump?
it's got 341,017 miles on it and is an inline 6 if that helps.

Many times the squeal in the belt area is caused by the idler pully. There is permentantly lubricated bearing that does dry out and squeal. If you have a good belt properly adjusted and sure it is not slipping spray a little WD-40 on the back of the pulley and if the sound changes replace the pully as a unit or if you have the skills change just the bearing. I have done this on my own XJ my daughter and my sons. Good luck and keep JEEPIN.

I have a 95 Grand Jeep Cherokee, that I think has the same problem. I've had the belt changed, twice and then the harmonic sensor gave out and I also had the belt clutch replaced. And it still makes the noise. Have you had an luck??? I'm going insane!!!

I noticed that this has been posted before. I have a Grand Jeep Cherokee Laredo 95 with 140+ miles on it. The noise seems to be coming from the fan belt area. I've had the fan belt replaces twice, the last time the harmonic sensor had to be replaced along with the fan belt clutch. The noise is still there, though. I'm going insane!!!!!!!! And spending way too much money. Please help.

#150 of 448 Whine in 1998 Grand Cherokee Limited

I just bought a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I noticed that when accelerating from a dead stop you can hear a whine. It sounds like its coming either from the transmission or the transfer case. This Jeep is the Quadra-Trac. Is this normal? Can anyone give me any ideas as to what this might be?
