#354 of 439 Re: Over Drive Humming/Roaring like a Wheel Bearing [jeep4life0604]
Dec 13, 2009 (4:33 am)
I have a similar humming problem on my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but it comes and goes. It feels like I have a flat tire or I am driving on a bumpy road. The steering wheel shakes too. It is usually bad between 30-35 miles and it will stop if I speed up or stop.. It is driving me nuts because I have not had time to take it in to the shop and I feel like every time I drive I am making it worse. I am also scared they will tell me they don't know what is wrong. I am a girl and work 50-60 hours a week and car trouble grinds me down
#355 of 439 1998 Cherokee Loud Grinding
Dec 20, 2009 (3:00 pm)
OK I'll try and do this step by step as it happened. 1998 Cherokee 4.0L 151,000 miles. About 2 weeks ago I noticed the Alt. gauge dropping-it comes and goes but still starts and runs OK. I was planning on replacing it this coming week. Of course yesterday we got a foot of snow (just to add to the upcoming aggravation). Awhile ago I went to start it and the key wouldn't turn in the ignition. So I did the usual twisting, turning, wiggling, etc. Finally it broke free but with some effort and started fine. However immediately I noticed the following warning lights- "Brake", "Air Bag" and "Check Engine" (I quit paying attention to this one several years ago). As anyone knows who has ever owned one of these models usually a good "Fist to the Dash" makes the warning lights go away. Not this time. Then I noticed no wipers, radio, pwr. windows, turn signals. All gauges were reading OK. So I go ahead and drive to the local mini-mart for supplies. I left it running just in case. After a couple minutes a VERY loud grinding noise started coming from the engine compartment. I only live about a mile away so I put it in drive and hoped for the best. Immediately the noise stopped. So I make it home and put it in park and it starts again. After more scratching my head it only makes the noise when in park or neutral. Still no wipers, radio, etc. All fuses are OK. I don't have a garage and I'm to old and spent way to many days and nights under a car in this kind of weather to mess with it any longer. My first guess is the bearings in the alternator finally went but I've never heard one that loud. And also why only in Park/Neutral? And why no wipers, radio, etc.? Any help is appreciated.

#359 of 439 Clicking noise after shut down
Mar 30, 2010 (11:55 am)
I have a 2003 Jeep grand Cherokee. When I shut off the engine, in approximately two minutes, a clicking noise occurs. It sounds like someone tapping their finger nail on a Formica counter. It will last for between 72 and 74 clicks then stop. It's been doing it for about two years, so I can live with it, but I would sure like to know what it is. I had blend door problems with this car and assumed it was related to that but I recently repaired that problem (Heater Treater Kit, highly recommended) but it has nothing to do with that. Any suggestions???
