Heres what I did on my 2002 jeep with the same engine : drain the oil, take some carb cleaner with the little tube attached and spray the cleaner up towards the oil pump pickup screen,let the crank case drain well,I added 1 quart of Riselone and topped off with 5qts of 5w-30 oil.I used a good anti siphone oil filter. I had the same proplem as you 1 year ago and never had the problem come back ! Hope I was a help !

I have an 05 JGC with the 4.7, 5 speed tranny, 2wd. My problem is that when I go into reverse, it make a loud clunking noise like the universal joint(s) are bad. Anyone else have/had this problem, and if so, what was the cause and how did you fix it??? Thanks for any time and info on this. Just to let you know, this vehicle has only been driven on the street, and NEVER thrashed on, although I do "blow the carbon" out of it every blue moon or so.

Thanks for the link. Mine is different, it only does it when I go into reverse. It don't do it in Drive, nor does it do it while I'm driving, only when I go into reverse. It sounds like it is the universal joint, but with less than 30k on the odometer, I can't see it going bad. The Jeep never see's any rain, because it never rains here to speak of. I guess I'll get it lubed and tell them to make sure they get the uni joint real good. If it does it after that, I'm off to the dealer with it. Thanks for the time and info on this, it's greatly appreciated.

could be where the drive shaft goes together the splines get dry and donot move freely when you put jeep in reverse the axel will shift a smig ane pull on the splines try to lube them and go from there

That makes sense. Thanks for the reply, I sometimes worry where there is no need to, but I would hate for it to drop while my GF was on the highway doing 80mph. I gotta crawl under there and see if I can fine the grease zerk, and give it a shot to see if it helps any. Thanks again for the time and info, it's greatly appreciated.

I have a 2000 Cherokee Sport with the 4.0L engine and the AW-4 auto trans with the Chrysler 8.25 rear axel with 91,000 miles on her. About a year ago, she developed a clopping or knocking noise coming from the rear suspension area. I took it into the dealer and they could not find anything wrong. I took it to an alignment/brake shop and they just tightened and lubricated all the rear suspension parts and that eliminated the sound for about four days, but the sound is back. Does anyone have any ideas on eliminating this annoying sound? It doesn't seem to affect the roadability, but is a little nerve racking.
