JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 5.9er not starting ... Starter

JEEP CHEROKEE Starter solenoid Sticking

Ok so I have a 97 cherokee I went grocery shopping tonight when I came home I shut the truck off and heard a loud whining noise I popped the hood and it was the starter still spinning but it wasnt hitting the flywheel like it didnt pop out.. I had to run in get snippers and cut the power as it was dark. I just put this starter in last month over the past week it would just click a few times before it would turn.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Replace solenoid or entire starter unit

Hey all 1997 ZJ 4.0L having some starting issues and I think it is the solenoid. When turning the key the starting motor sounds like its spinning but would not engage anything else in to crank the engine. Tried to hammer on the starting motor while turning it over and it didnt help. I used a screwdriver to connect the starting motor terminals to turn it over and it would spin again without cranking

Agree with those above Replace the whole thing. I saw more than a couple people try to get by with just a new solenoid when I sold parts. Sometimes it worked but when it didnt you wouldnt believe the whining. No returns on installed electrical. A lot of solenoids have a plastic stem the connects to the lever that attaches to the bendix. If that stem breaks the solenoid will make the electrical connection

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Whining transmission 05

I recently started hearing a light whining sound from the trannmission. The sound started when I was testing 4wd (bought it recently). Also the whining is very noticeable when in 4 low (is that normal). Could it be bad tranny or tcase fluid Is it an easy job to do

For startersCheck the fluid level in the transmission and transfer case. And yes there is a certain amount of noise from the transfer case when in 4hi or 4low especially when engaged on dry pavement.

JEEP CHEROKEE Pufing ticking whining noises form engine bay

im getting a puffing noise constantly and will get ticking and whining from the belt area on and off the whining could be a belt but what about the puffing noise

Im still inclined to agree with xjfever on this Id check the intake and exhaust manifolds. Spray some starter fluid around the intake manifold and if the idle jumps then you know you have a bad gasket. Carefully inspect the exhaust mani as well for exhaust leaking out. If it is completely isolated to the front then check Aux fan shroud Mech fan shroud Clearence at the harmonic balancer and Timing chain cover Idler Pulley Altenator

JEEP CHEROKEE High pitched whining noise coming from engine tranny area

Ok so I have a 00 cherokee and recently it has started making this loud whining noise (sound like a supercharger). The noise is there at start up and once you put the jeep in gear and accelerate it gets louder and continues when the jeep shifts gears.

JEEP CHEROKEE WhiningBearing noise while engine running

Hello all 99 XJ makes a noise kind of similar to a power steering pump that is failing when the engine is running at all times however now I dont think its the pump as I did when I first saw the jeep. It kind of sounds like its coming from near the AC or oil filter area The PO just replaced the AC so its not likely its that... Video of the engine w sound here...It sounds a little louder on camera than

Thanks all hopefully I wont have to replace it totally and I can just have it rebuilt. There is a little place right down the road that rebuilt the starter on my tractor a couple months ago dont see why they wouldnt do alts also.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Wont Start when cold...whine sound

When I try to start my jeep in the morning it dosent crank I just hear a whining spinning sound while I have it in start. Once I release the key it stops. When I go to start it again a few seconds later starts up no problem. My guess would be that the starter is going but maybe it has something to do with fuel delivery Anyone ever have a similar experience

JEEP CHEROKEE Engine died while on Highway - Help

Hello On the way to work the other day I had a complete engine failure so it appears. Right before the engine died I had brief moment of a power loss and then all the tachs went to zero and I coasted from there. Now when I start the car I have electric (i.e. radio buzzers lights etc) but when I turn the ignition to the ON position all I hear is short burst of a whining sound then it fades. NO engine

Ok I think he answered his own question. Now this wont explain the engine dieing but it might explain the whining noise. He said when he jumps the starter relay he gets the same whining noise. That means the little gear in the starter is turning but not engaging the flywheel which means the starter is bad. And if anyone ever really paid attention to when they start a car when you turn the key to start it everything (radiogauges etc etc) goes dead because all the power is going to the starter

JEEP CHEROKEE Big cold weather problems.. What is going on with my Jeep

ok so every once in a while since it has been cold the jeep will not start every time. It will try to turn over a few times and then all I hear is a whining noise and then a big clunk. It was only doing it one maybe two times every once in a while and then it would fire right up and run fine. After the jeep had been warmed up it was fine to start for the rest of the day. Now its getting worse and worse..

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Liberty noise Rear end. Rumble strips

hey guys Sorry for the long post new to this forum trying to find answers or just learn alittle. I was driving my 02 jeep Liberty limited down the road on Saturday nite...was about 2 miles from my house ....had to slow down from 45 to 25mph to go thru the neighborhood. When I slowed down I feltheard a noise from the car that almost sounded like I was driving over rumble strips just not as loud as that

the whining noise could be a starterstill spoiling after you start the engine...you can find a used 231 transfer case any where...even here on jeepforum...i would look around to see prices as far as labor cost...the do need to disconect the drive shaft and trany...need new things like trans fluid rear main seal that sort of thing...no way all that w a used case will cost you that much...that is half on what it is costing me to put a fron axle in my liberty...

JEEP CHEROKEE does deep water hurt jeeps

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Stupid Question about very cold engine starts

So I was wondering This morning was extremely cold here in Virginia.. It was about 15F and it was really REALLY windy the windchill was under 0F. This would be the first real cold start for me on my 5.9 or any vehicle personally since the 5.9 is my first vehicle lol. When I turned the key it cranked about 3-4 times super slow like it was out of power and when it turned on the engine was whining while

Old worn starters will crank slowly in the cold plus all your fluids are thicker plus a handful of other effects. So slow cranking is to be expected. Also even though wind chill does not effect a vehicle (theres no moisture to evaporate causing the wind chill effect) heat transfer rate does increase as the difference in temperature between the coolant and outside air increases. So the radiator is doing
