#394 of 1888 Engine noises
Jul 07, 2006 (5:26 am)
I have a question but not sure if I really want to know the answer due to the actual solution to the problem. My 2000 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 makes a strange, with lack of better terms, gurgle sound when I shut it off. I constantly am looking underneath for any sign of a leak. It even gives a hint of antifreeze at times after I shut it off but once again no sign of any leaks. Fluid levels are good, but the sounds and smells make me really nervous. I would appreciate the advice and help if anyone has it. Thank you.

It's probably either the refrigerant in the condenser (in front of the radiator), or the coolant returning to the radiator from the expansion tank.

What's carpeting doing in a Jeep Wrangler anyway? I don't blame Chrysler's attitude. The Wrangler was never designed to be used like a regular vehicle. It's best suited for what it's designed for....going through the mud, crossing creeks, hunting, climbing trails etc.

My 98 Wrangler is doing the same thing and it is getting worse. I use to restart it within a few miles of the house, then it was fine. Now I often have to restart it more than one. No check engine light. Mr. Tire already cleaned the fuel system and replaced spark plugs/wires.
Did you ever get your's fixed?

I have a 04 Wrangler Sport and the emergency flashers, brake lights, and turn signals went out. I replaced all bulbs, replaced the fuse for the turn signals and replaced the flasher. I could not find any bad fuses. Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

You have to drop the windshield to get to the wiper motor. The wiper motor is under the cowl seal in front of the drivers area.
If you have a hard top it must be removed and the soft top must be disconnected from top of the windshield frame. I don't have a soft top so I am being assumptive as to how you remove it.
Remove the bolts holding the roll bar to the windshield frame. Remove the bolts holding the bracket at each side of the dashboard where the windshield assembly hinges (on the inside of the Jeep). The windshield should now rotate toward the hood. Disconnect the old motor and replace with new. It may also be a good idea to replace the cowl seal while you are in there.

It's probably either a faulty multi function switch, or a bad connection to it from the Power Distribution Center (PDC).
Have you exceeded the mileage limit of your warranty?
