I am new to these forums, never used them before. I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited with the 4.7. I have an odd vibration that occurs after driving and then sitting in park. If I turn the steering wheel the noise disappears. I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Im not a mechanic but it may be a ball joint. If you are able to jack up front end and try to wiggle the front tires there should not be much movement when you do this. If it seems wobbly joints probably need changed out.
What do you mean by "odd vibration"? Does it feel like the steering wheel is vibrating? Is it the front wheels? Is it the whole Jeep? Are you stopped? Moving?

Ok, once I start out it's fine, if I drive it for 15, 20 minutes then park, once it sits at an idle for roughly 5 to 10 minutes the steering wheel gets a slight vibration, i popped the hood while it was doing this and theres no audible difference but i can hear it inside the jeep. If I turn the steering wheel while parked it dissipates until I stop turning the wheel. Once i start moving again it also goes away until i park again. I'm wondering if it could be a bad bearing on the power steering pump pulley?
I was wrong i can definitely hear a difference under the hood, I seen a video of guy using a long handled screwdriver touching it to each component individually and putting his ear to the other end, I tried that. Couldn't tell a difference even with my wife turning the steering wheel and noise disappears with each slight movement. Once she stopped turning the wheel the noise and vibration return. I'm still stumped.
