2001 Jeep Cherokee Problems

Front and Rear Differential Pinion Seal and Transfer Case Leaks

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.

Various Engine Oil Leaks

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

Brake Pulsations Due to Warped Front Brake Rotors

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

Jeep Recalls 1999-2002 Vehicles With 4.0L Engine Due to Debris Collecting in Number 3 Cylinder

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.

Chyrsler Recalls 2000-2001 Vehicles Due to Omitted Child Seat Tether Instruction Information

Owners were sent an addendum to the owners manual that addresses tether strap installation.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Reviews

I have 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo and have had it for 11 yrs. Had to put a new fan motor and tail light covers but other than that, no problems. The taillights are crap. I've had to replace the covers 4 times and still have problems with the blinkers. They work when they want. Overall, I love mine and will keep it until the day one of us die.
