#223 of 439 Water sloshing behind dash
Mar 28, 2008 (7:42 am)
I own a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. In September of 2007 I started to notice a water noise coming from behind the passenger dash area. It makes a sound like if you had a cooler half full of water with ice in it and then shook it side-to-side. I know this is an odd description, but that is what it sounds like. It is especially noticeable when I first take off or turn. I have checked the condensation drain. It is clear, as best I can tell and I have no moisture in the floor. What do you think this could be? Any ideas? Thanks to anyone that can help.

I just bought a 2008 Jeep Gr.Cherokee Laredo 3.0L Diesel. When stopping, or reversing and stopping abruptly, you hear a loud knock/clunk in the rear of the vehicle. This is more prominent when the fuel tank is between 3/4 to full. The service at the dealership said that it is the fuel in the tank swishing around and that this knock is "normal" as this tank does not have baffles. Has anyone else experienced this knock? And what do you do when the dealership tells you this is "normal"??

#228 of 439 Clicking Noise at startup in dash when engine is cold

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee 4.7L with 45000 miles and this morning I started it and a loud clicking started that sounded like it came from the dash area so I turned off the air , the radio and then shut it off. I restarted the engine and the noise continued. It did stop after a few minutes. This is the first time that this has happened. Any suggestions?

Tires should be the first thing you check, then go from there.

Are you sure that it is coming from the dash, or could it be in the engine compartment?

For Jeepins. You need knew brakes mort likely. Brake pads come with a little wear tab built into the side and once you use up most of the pad over time the little tab begins to drag along the rotor when "A your backing up" or "B your driving with out using the brake" if your problem is the brakes you should get it fixed soon before that tab damages the rotor beyond its resurfacing point or you will have to replace the rotor as well.

I have a 2001 JGC Limited, and the rear axle has been making that similar noise for 2 years now, but it sounds more like a high pitched whee-whee-whee, and it also accelerates as i pick up speed. I had tires, brakes, and rotors checked and all was ok. It was chalked up-to a bent axle, because removing the wheel showed the rotor cocking side to side when rin drive and vehicle on hoist. To summarize, you'll need to take your jeep to the mechanic, put it on a hoist, put it in drive and watch both wheels on front/back axle (whichever one noise is coming from). then remove the wheels and see if sound is still there. if not, its your wheel. if so, watch your rotors when in drive to see if the cock from side-to-side, if so, look for scoring on the rotor and uneven smoothness when rubbing your finger across rotor face (perform when vehicle is in park only ... be careful b/c rotors may be hot). if rotor is uneven, then change your rotors or get them turned (cheaper). if rotors are smooth, even, and not scored, then most likely you axle is bent (5K to change ... just live with it - that is my problem)
Hope I helped. My issue now, is when I turn on the driver side A/C, it blows heat, but passenger side will blow cold air. we hadn't used the A/C in about a year. it is also a climate controlled system.
have any advice?
