My inner tie rod is broke and the long bar acrossed my have stipped the theading on 2002 jeep grand Cherokee i wondering what it is called
The highbeams in my 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo turned on while I was driving and wouldn't turn off even after I turned the car off. I didn't have time to pull a fuse so I figured the battery would die and itd be no big deal. Eventually it overheated and caught on fire. I had noticed smoke so I had an extinguisher in hand when it caught fire so the fire damage is almost non existent. How much rewiring would have to be done to make sure this doesnt happen again? Is it a job I could do on my own? What parts would need to be replaced?
When I go just north of 60MPH the left front wheel will gradually begin to bounce and get worse if I maintain that speed. It is nearly uncontrollable. If I'm on a newly paved road it won't begin until about 65 MPH. I definitely need new tires, but it has been getting worse over the past year. Would you recommend tires first, or a combination of tires and shocks?
I'm told by dealer is a clock spring problem.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? na
How long have you had this problem? a few days
for a while my jeep would die when I would drive it for like 30 min but would only die when I would come to a complete stop and would not restart right away. But if you let it sit for a while and then tried again it would turn right over. Well recently I moved and had to drive the vehicle 2 hours away and nothing seemed wrong the whole way but get to the off ramp and at the bottom when I came to a full stop it died so I had to leave it there for like 2 hours to go unload the uhaul. Came back and it had trouble starting at first but eventually started so I started to drive to my new house. I got about 2 miles and started to go up a hill at about 35 and the gas peddle would give and then come back on a pulse. By the time I got to the top of the hill I had already been going 60 and it stopped so I thought I could make it to the house and work on it there. But when I started to go up the next hill it started to do it again but this time a lot more. I got over the hill and the peddle had no go to it and the. It died so I pulled over and realized I had smoke coming from under the hood. So I got out and opened the hood and the smoke seemed to be coming from underneath the car so I walk around the side and see smoke also coming out from behind my rear driver side wheel. I had some one pick me up and went back the next day to try to start it and to no avail. I ended up having to tow it to my house. I have no idea what it could be. I don't have the money right now to take it to a shop but if I could get some ideas of what the problem could be I may be able to fix it with my dad's help.

Sorry for any typos.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? The hotter it is outside the more often it would happen.

Wheather its cold or warm there is a wrapping noise coming from the head of my engine. I did an oil change using a napa gold filter and 5w 30 full sythetic oil made sure it was topped off in hope the noise would cease with the thicker weight oil. It didnt it goes with the idle and is usually at its worst at idle do i need to replace the head or could it possibly be an intale leak.
Put an new engine in now the keep won't start. Timing chain is on right it cranks over but won't start
