Hi !...I had the same issue with my 2004 Grand Cherokee Lmt. It had 120K miles on it and I was experiencing the exact same condition. Since it felt like the hub bearing on the front driver side I change it myself along with the half axle. The condition still existed. At times it felt like it was comming from the passenger side so I change out that side also. Still having the condition. It only happened in parking lots making right or left tight slow turns. At that mileage it was time to have the transmission and transfer case fluid changed. I went to Chrysler and purchased their reccomended transfer case fluid and changed it myself. Without using the Jeep the next morning I had the transmission fluid "exchanged". I don't know how or why but the problem was gone??.................I hope this helps you.

Sounds like your heater resistor. The vent/door closing is normal.

I'm getting a cluncking sound and feeling transmitted to the sterrring column whenever I slow down abruptly or come to a stop. This is a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 4x4. Anyone else have this problem?

Have had the same issue in past just after having brakes done. Turned out that the bracket that holds the calipers on - one of them was slightly loose and make clunk thumping sound when brakes applied.
check this to make sure tight. I think it was 16 iir 18 mm wrench

My husband has a 1996 and we have had the same problem for years. One so called mechanic replaced a couple of different things saying that's what it was, wrong. Somebody else said transmission. Another mechanic said shocks again. Last month the damn door for somereason fell down, just ripped and we couldn't shut it. Took it to a body shop they got a door and installed it for $300. As my husband was leaving they said did he want to fix that grinding clank problem, as they were doing another Jeep for the same problem. My husband asked if they really knew what it was and they said yeah, it's the transfer case. That it's a big problem with the Jeep Cherokees. $800 for parts and labor later problem solved!!! Wish we had found them a couple of thousand $ earlier. Hope this might help.
#409 of 448 Evaporative System Issues
Jun 29, 2011 (5:47 am)
Since December 2010, my check engine light has come on five times. I've included below what was done each time at the mechanic.
73,797 - P0456 Error Code - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (very small leak) - 11/26/10 - Possible loose gas cap, mechanic tightened and tested cap and reset the OBD.
74,102 - P0442 Error Code - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (medium leak) - 12/7/10 - Gas cap tested bad, mechanic replaced the gas cap and reset the OBD.
77,718 - P0455 Error Code - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (large leak) - 5/31/11 - Possible loose gas cap, mechanic tightened cap and reset the OBD.
77,865 - P0455 Error Code - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (large leak) - 6/10/11 - Mechanic replaced the evaporative vent solenoid (solenoid was clicking loudly on the 11/26/10 date) and the crankcase vent hose (hose was cracked); reset the OBD.
78,161 - P0455 Error Code - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (large leak) - 6/21/11 - Mechanic suggested going to the dealer because they have an advanced computer system.
I've researched this on Google and it appears that many have had this issue on different Chrysler vehicles, many with no resolution. My mechanic said he could do a smoke test (pump smoke through the evaporative system) to see if that shows anything, but he said that this can be expensive to track down the problem. The dealer wants $95 just to run diagnostics (which would apply to my estimate to get it fixed, assuming they figure out the problem).
Have you heard of this? If so, what have people tried?
Any other suggestions?
The mechanic said I could drive with the light on, but this makes me uneasy, especially if I go out of town. I have noticed a decline in gas mileage. Other than that, it may run slightly rough here and there, but overall doesn't seem phased by this issue. I haven't spent a ridiculous amount of money so far, but I'm trying to keep the costs down on this.
