#185 of 439 Hissing/Whooshing coming from under dash
Jan 04, 2008 (8:53 pm)
My Jeep is a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
I hear a hissing and/or whooshing sound as soon as I start the engine. The sound seems to be coming from under the dash by the brake booster.
When I press down on the brake pedal at any time, the hissing/whooshing sound stops. But when I release the brake pedal, then step on the gas pedal, the sound starts again.
The braking system works great.
Please help. Sure would appreciate it!!!

I'm having a similar problem with my '04 Cherokee 4.0 ltr I-6. I can't get the belt to stop squeaking! I've replace the idler arm tensioner and pulley, the power steering pulley, the alternator, and the belt 3 times. It quits squeaking for a few days, then it comes back. Sometimes its a faint "chirp, chirp, chirp", other times it screams!Frusterating!

I forgot where I saw it now, but some belts (Gates, iirc) have logos that are painted onto the belts. The paint can cause chirping. Putting belt dressing on the belt will mask the symptoms for a few days until the dressing wears off.
I'll see if I can find that link....
 ah, here it is - worth a shot:

#188 of 439 Clunking sound over bumps...05 JGC Limited
Jan 20, 2008 (9:27 am)
Hey guys, I have recently noticed a loud clunking sound in the front end when I go over bumps. I also can feel it under my feet. It has gotten louder over the last 2 weeks. I thought it might be due to the frigid temps here in central Illinois, but I only have about 700 miles left on my warranty, and naturally the dealer can't get me in until next week. They are and have been worthless Has anyone experienced this problem??? I am worried that the warranty will expire before I get it in and I will get royally F*%ked. Thanks for your assistance!!
#189 of 439 Grinding Metal
Feb 26, 2008 (10:38 am)
I have an '04 grand cherokee and it makes this odd, intermittent, grinding metal noise (as if my muffler were scraping along the ground as I drive... but its not). It sounds like its coming from the rear end around the diff, although I just had the diff replaced not too long ago at a shop. Nothing appeared to be out of place so I've waved it off as something maybe getting stuck around my wheels. Just wanted to know if any of you guys have experienced this or know what it could be.
Input would be much appreciated!!

I agree fully with you. Sounds like this guy knows nothing about cars at all to describe what he just did as I haven't a clue what it would be by that description.... You need to do some investigating unless you have an endless bank account and can afford a mechanic to, probably, rip you off diagnosing it as he'll see for sure you know nothing and are an easy target. This almost sounds like a blonde woman describing her car issue.... Sorry but you need to educate yourself on your own car more. That's my advice. That description helps nothing to solve your problem from my standpoint.
#193 of 439 Clanking noise in lower engine like somethings loose and clanging around.
Mar 06, 2008 (8:26 pm)
About half a year ago or more I accidently downshifted, I had borrowed a stick shift pickup and was in the habit of shifting so..., into reverse and my Jeep slammed into reverse jarring the engine extremely. After that a clanking noise started here and there in the lower part of the engine. It wasn't constant but now and then it would clang like something hitting something there. Someone said it might be the flywheel. I don't know what it is but just starting today it's like it's coming loose, whatever it is, and it's clanging around at low rpm's. I'm afraid it'll come off, whatever it is, then I'll have a HUGE problem. Anyone know what damage I did and what it is that's loose? I'm sure it's simple but I need to know so I can get it fixed. I don't want a garage to rip me off. I very much appreciate this as I need to get it done asap! I'm afraid to drive it much now. Thank you for your help!

I would check the engine mounts but better to hear from the experts here. Anyone?
