2000 Jeep Cherokee Problems

Engine -- Verified

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket and timing cover gasket are common.

Drive Train -- Verified

Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

A ticking type noise may be noted from the engine area due to an exhaust manifold that has cracked where the pipes are welded; cracked manifolds should be replaced.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The throttle body may accumulate an oily, black residue in the bore and on the throttle plate causing hard starting or possibly stalling when coming to a stop. The throttle body should be cleaned during regular maintenance but do not spray cleaners directly on or at the throttle position sensor (TPS) as this can damage the sensor.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Floor pan rust and corrosion typically happens where salt or mud is allowed to accumulate on the vehicle. Holes drilled in the floor can contribute to rust if the bare metal is not painted or protected with corrosion resistant coatings. Floor pan kits are available from Jeep and the aftermarket to repair rusted areas.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The design of the intake and exhaust manifolds allow for debris collection in the area of the number three cylinder. This may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will install a manifold shield to modify air flow characteristics to prevent debris accumulation.

owe a 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo when the head lights are on mash the brakes light and tail light dont work . some one please help thank you

Love my 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport. But it has some issues in wet weather the brakes grab, I mean really grab. Like your going to go through the front windshield. Also the drivers side PW/PL control has a constant electrical short which cuts out the other doors PW/PL controls from operating. And finally the A/C has been checked, rechecked and has freon constantly added, so A/C does not work. The repair bill would be $800 for the A/C.

just got my 2000 jeep cherokee sport and i just love this vehicle. about to have new brake pads put on all around. also seems a squeaky belt needs to be replaced. plan on reconditioning the paint and doing a full exterior detail. the fun has begun.
