Jeep Wrangler Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Jeep Wrangler
- engine rpms increase 1000 while slowing down with the clutch pedal applied
- Drives find until i hit a bump or put it in reverse. It cuts out on bumps.
- 95'YJ starts up & fires up but dies as soon as it fires up
- When I turn off the ignition the seat belt warning light comes back on very dim.
- My breaks are schreeching badly everytime I apply the breaks! I was wondering what ways there are to fix this and how much it would cost??? (I think it is the front breaks that are making the noise)
Jeep Wrangler Problems
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
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.

Jeep Wrangler Recalls
The heated outside rear view mirrors may develop corrosion in the wiring connectors that supply power to them. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will modify these wire connectors to provide a separate power feed free of charge to resolve this concern.
The power steering system and automatic transmission each have associated fluid lines. 2012 & 2013 Wrangler models equipped with both of these options are being recalled because a power steering fluid line can rub on one of the transmission oil cooler lines and wear a hole in the transmission line, causing a leak. Loss of transmission fluid can result in failure of the transmission to operate, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering return tube assembly to correct this concern.
The clockspring is a coil of wire located behind the steering wheel, it allows the steering wheel to turn and still maintain the electrical connection between the steering column and the rotating steering wheel. Certain right hand drive models are being recalled because the circuit inside the clockspring could break. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light and/or no-deployment of the driver's front airbag in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clockspring and add a steering wheel dust shield to correct this concern.

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler X 4DR 4X4. I used to love it until "DEATH WOBBLE" started. OMFG!!! 70 MPH on I95 in Philly traffic I almost cr*%@pped my pants. Now if I go 40 MPH and hit a small bump there it goes again. Now I have another problem- engine ticking!

Found out that our 2007 Wrangler Unlimited with 45,000 spun a bearing. Dealer wanted $6,500 to replace the motor. Dealer said they wanted to help me out but Chrysler needed more oil change receipts. Called Chrysler and they said they wished they could help me but the Dealer needed more oil change receipts. Bottom line - we were on our own. Chrysler's Unlimited Drivetrain Warranty is WORTHLESS!!...
