#157 of 440 popping out of 4wheel drive
Oct 07, 2007 (9:40 am)
I have a 1995 jeep grand Cherokee limited. I was driving down the road and it made a load popping sound it sounded like it came from the front right tire . Then about 1 mile down the road it started popping and the transfer case started trying to pop into neutral. I was told it was the front right axle i replaced that and it done the same thing. I took the front drive shaft out and it still makes the popping sound but the transfer case does not try to pop into neutral. Does anybody have any ideals . thanks
#158 of 440 Another tapping sound
Oct 08, 2007 (5:08 pm)
I have just bought a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo,40,000
miles, This tapping sound only starts when you first start it in the morning. I brought it to my mechanic ,he says it is
not my lifters! He did a through inspection of my car before I bought this beauty! I need help. Now this car is protected under the 70,000 mile power train warranty. Do I take to my Jeep dealer? Is this serious? Please help me guys (and girls)!
Would 40,000 miles make these lifters go bad already? By the way the tapping sound quits after about 30minutes and does not happen and till the next day> Thank you. HELP!!!!

Is the tapping regular? Does its frequency change with engine speed? Could it just be thermal expansion while the engine or exhaust manifold are heating?

I am the one with the 2004 Grand Cherokee. I turned the air conditioner off. Still makes this tapping sound. As you go
faster the tapping sound also goes faster. Only happens
on first time start up. Antbody else have this problem?

Yes the tapping sound is regular only in the first start up.
It does change frequency with engine speed. I read that someone mention using this Marvel Mystery Oil,should i use it?
I found new "evidence',this stops when the oil gauge reaches
210 ,which is normal? I need more advice from somebody please?
#162 of 440 Responding to tapping sound

I am new at this and my skills in mechanical repairs are limited. But I have spend many hours reading just what could go wrong with my Cherokee Sport, and how much the part would cost. One site I was on recommended replacing this part to stop a tapping sound on cold engines. The part did not look that large, almost like a short pipe, located somewhere near the transmission. I hope the experts can gleam something from what little I have added. Good luck. 3rdjpowner

I am the one who has the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 40,000 miles and has that tapping sound. It is only on the first start,last s about 20 or 30 minutes then goes away.
The tapping is a regular,every morning and yes the sound goes faster when the acelarator is pushed down. I really need some suggestions! Please!
