#197 of 439 Re: Clanking noise in lower engine like somethings loose and clanging around. [dixiecrawler]

Thanks for the input. It's a 1991 Jeep Cherokee Larado, straight 6, 4-wheel drive. It wasn't going too fast, around 35 or so. Stupid move, I know. Either way, I understand what you're saying. I didn't have it checked as it didn't do anything other than make a noise every now and then but you are right. It will get worse and worse and could cause damage to other things which is what it might be doing now clanging around. I'm guessing it might be a loose flywheel, the bolts sheared off or something. The mechanic is going to look at it on Tuesday. it drives fine other than that noise at idle and gets worse at a low idle, obviously something's loose and doesn't wobble when the speed increases because of centrifigal force. I appreciate your input very much!
#198 of 439 Humming Noise
Mar 14, 2008 (12:25 am)
I have a 2001 Jeep Grand cherokee Limited. V8 4.7L. For about 5 months now it has been making this annoying humming sound from the back. You cant hear it from the outside unless you put your head right by the back right wheel area. I took it to a mechanic and he said it could be the fuel pump. So I had the fuel pump replaced. Didn't fix the noise. It is still the same. It sounds like it could have definatly been the pump but since replacing it didnt work I am at a loss. If you open the back, you can hear it the worst. It hums when im in park and very lightly when going 10-30mph and almost unhearable at higher speeds.
the mechanic says some cars just have noisy fuel pumps. well he replaced it with a brand new one, so why is it still noisy?
Do you have any suggestions to as what it might be?

Mar 19, 2008 (5:55 am)
need a little help. i have a 2004 jgc with 38,000 miles with a annoying noise coming from the rear.when i go over bumps around 30 mhr or faster sounds like something is loose. i have checked everything.sway bar links. shocks. rear gate. spare tire. I'm about to bring it to the shop. next question I'm getting about 16 miles a gallon is that about right 4.0L. the other question should i use synthetic oil in the motor to prolong its life or is it a waste of money

Mar 20, 2008 (7:29 pm)
its a 99 grand cherokee. i have this rattling noise in the rear end, every time i hit a bump or even a crack in the road it acts up. at first i thought it might be the shocks, so i replaced them, then i thought it was the rear sway bar link, i just replaced them today and the noise is still there, its getting very annoying, any tips...
