1999 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.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Reviews

My 1999 cherokee has 214,000 miles on it. It has been a reliable vehicle. I have replaced tires and brakes (normal). At 150K miles i have a new condenser installed. Since then and now I replaced the front passenger window mechanism. I just had the exhaust manifold welded and I need front U-joints. I will need them for the winter. Other than the normal bottom rust the vehicle still looks good and the engine is strong. I will buy another one when this one dies.

I love my Jeep. I have had it for about 7 years and it has always served me well. I have done all repairs myself and luckily there has been nothing major. My wife and I both agree we will keep it even when we purchase a new car.
