1999 Jeep Wrangler Problems
The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail causing intermittent drivability problems like hard starting, stalling, and/or hesitation when accelerating. A failed TPS will require replacement, proper diagnoses should always be performed before replacing any parts.
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.
Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.
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.

1999 Jeep Wrangler Reviews
I purchased this 1999 Jeep Wrangler as a hunting vehicle to only be used during hunting season. I now drive it all the time. I have only had one problem with it and that is the alternator overcharging and burning up batteries. Easy fix. Vehicle is very strong and engine runs great with over 125k on it. Real strong engine. Doesn't use or leak any oil. Drive train hasn't given me any problems. This is my second jeep and I'm sure it won't be my last. Love it.
thease jeep wranglers are the best i had a 1999 that i drove until it had 297,628 miles on it the original 4.0 still ran great the manual trans still shifted as it should i only had to replace the clutch once the body held up great no rust any where i had to rebuild the drivers seat once the pading got a little soft after the first 150,000 miles but other than that it was a great truck i would still be driving it if i hadent got such a good deal on my new one i hope it last as long
The six cylinder models have an inherent issue with exhaust manifold cracking for the 1991-2001 model years. Aftermarket headers are the solution...OEM headers WILL crack. The HVAC controls also have an issue with having periodic "meltdowns". The fan switch cannot handle the amperage and will melt over time...if yours does this, get it fixed ASAP to avoid a catastrophic fire. Other than those two issues, the '99 Wrangler is a tank. Point-n-Shoot when you're out on the trails. In traffic, it's easy to maneuver and is quite nimble. It's no Ferrari and it's not a Cadillac. Slow and bouncy, but it will go wherever you point it...mud, rocks, snow, city streets. Enjoy the freedom.
