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.
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.
1998 Jeep Cherokee QuestionsWhat would it cost to fix this problem? P0405 comes on/off every few months. (1 answer)
check engine code is p0405.
Come to a complete stop but when I start to pull off its like my transmission didn't kick down to 1st gear. Give it gas rpms are real low until it kicks into 1st or 2nd gear. Sometimes I can downshift to first when it does it to get it to act right.
Can't it just be welded if the crack is small?
