SOURCE: 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming

check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced

SOURCE: Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited P0700 diagnostic problem

P0700 means there is a transmission fault code in the transmission controller. Since the transmission controller doesn't have a light attached, it tells the engine controller to turn the light on using this code. You'll have to access the transmission controller to further diagnose the problem.

First off.....I hate when "Someone" says "take it to a mechanic"....if he wanted to take it to a mechanic he would. Maybe he doesn't want to be screwed. Search around at jeepforum.com you'll find some info instead of lame opinions like take it to dealer etc....

Rear end groan


similar problems occur with Subaru AWD systems, the problem might be the centre diff, or a rubbing mudflap, or you have put the wrong aspect ratio tyres on and the drive system is complaining.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited makes rear noise when turning left?


Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

Vibration in rear of vehicle when braks are applied


I believe that the rear discs are warped or the tires are out of round when braking. More likely, the discs. --- The following are the instructions for replacing the front and rear pads for the front/back rotors. 1999-01 Grand Cherokee Front
  1. Drain 2?3 of the brake fluid from the front reservoir. Use the bleeder screw at the front outlet port to drain the fluid. If equipped with anti-lock brakes, relieve the system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Insert a small prybar through the caliper opening and pry the caliper (using the outboard brake pad) to bottom the pistons in the caliper bore. NOTE: This will back the brake pads off of the rotor surface to facilitate the removal and installation of the caliper assembly.
  5. Pry the caliper support spring out of the caliper.
  6. Remove both caliper slide pin bushing caps and slide pins.
  7. Lift the caliper from the anchor.
  8. Using a piece of mechanics wire, support the caliper so there is not tension on the brake hose.
  9. Remove the brake pads from the caliper. Fig. 2: Installing the inward brake pad on the front caliper pistons - 1999-01 Grand Cherokee 93026g92.gif
    To install:
  10. Position the brake pads onto the caliper.
  11. Position the caliper into place on the anchor.
  12. Coat the caliper slide pins with silicone grease and torque them to 21-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm). Install the slide pin bushing caps.
  13. Install the caliper support spring in the top of the caliper under the anchor; then, install the other end into the lower caliper hole. NOTE: Hold the spring in the caliper hole with your thumb while prying the spring end out and under the anchor.
  14. Fill the master cylinder with fluid and bleed the brake system.
  15. Before driving the vehicle, pump the brakes several times to seat the pads.
  16. Install the wheels.

Groaning while turning left


There are a few stabilizer bars under this truck that have rubber bushings that hold them in place. This may be where the noise is coming from. Have them checked and replaced if worn. They will not move unless there is a large amount of force. If they move with ease then they are bad. Hope this helps. Good luck.
