  1. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    95 Jeep Cherokee XJ Country 4.0L. Ok so I was sick of hearing belt squeling like krazy so I went ahead and changed water pump bc when I would spray a lil wd40 on center of pulley it would momentarily stop. So I removed electric fan and the shroud for clutch fan. Loosened and removed lower...

    Drove my ‘79 CJ5 today - was making a noise coming from engine bay. Just started this noise. Disconnected PS belt - ran engine - noise still there. Did the same with alternator - noise still there. Did the screwdriver from the water pump to the ear - looks like it’s time for a new one. Did...

    Any recommendations for a water pump for my ‘72 CJ5 304 V8? Should I get high flow water pump or stick with an OEM? I have also had a few people tell me to remove the thermostat when I put a new water pump on. Any thoughts on the T-stat? Any recommendations is greatly appreciated. Thanks,

    Hello, I've grown up working on stuff, but am getting over my head on this project. I have a 78 CJ5 with at 304. Bought it used a few years ago. It ran fine until recently, and I've noticed the following issues. After I let it sit for 4-5 days, it won't turn over when I crank. Seems like...

    I'm at a lost and hoping some can point me in the right direction. Temp gauge did not work. So I started with replacing the temp sending unit. After that the temp gauge worked but it started running hot very fast according to the gauge. From cold to hot would be less than 5 minutes. After...
  6. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    This spring I replaced my water pump. Strange noise and it was flopping around like a fish. Afterwards I was getting better mileage and it ran cooler and better. Fast froward to the past month my mileage has tanked again, its idling too low again, vacuum lower than it should, and a couple of...

    Hey guys, ran into an issue after replacing Radiator, Water Pump and Stat hoping for some guidance. Anyway. last fall I had bypassed my heater core after it was leaking. I bought a new one, drained and flushed the system, removed the dash, replaced the core, refilled the coolant and it seemed...

    Hey everyone! So I am new to the Jeep Forum website but i am here asking for help. Since around October I have been having issues with my jeep overheating, but it only does so on the highway. I've gotten my thermostats replaced, my water pump, and my radiator. My mechanic has also flushed...

    This is on the Wife's '07 WK 4.7 with about 169k miles on the engine. She mentioned that she heard some pinging when pulling into the the driveway. When I looked it over I noticed that the pulley behind the mechanical Fan had slipped forward almost half the width of the belt and I can wobble...

    I got home today and saw I was leaking some fluid on the ground. It seems to be coolant and from what i could see, it was coming from the lower radiator hose at the block. I'm guessing something popped. I was driving it pretty hard before I got home, playing Mustang I guess. :oops: Any ideas...

    How do you know if the water pump is going out? Im guessing thats what it is at least but ive never had to replace one myself. Im losing coolant but the radiator and hoses are not leaking at all, there is a bit of a rattle and small screeching once in awhile, the best looks like its going to...
  13. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Guys, I've had a water pump that is only 13 months old (OEM MOPAR) and it's now got a wobbly pulley and sounds horrible. Took Serp. Belt off and yes the pulley can move quite a bit back and forth (in and out towards the engine). so I'm going to replace it AGAIN. My question is this; I...
  14. Engines & Drivetrain
    So I have been having a leak in my 97 ZJ for a couple months now. I have changed the water pump, upper and lower rad hoses, and the thermostat and housing and it still leaks when the engine cools down. My next best guess is the timing cover gasket is blown. What I don't know is if I need any...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2008 GC CRD, and I think (pretty sure) its overdue for a coolant flush, ~240k km's (~150k miles)... I was wondering, is it worth getting a new pump at this age of the vehicle as well? When do they eventually start to fail? I'm not the original owner, and not sure if its...
  17. Jeep CJ Forum
    I noticed a low frequency grinding noise from my engine compartment. It gets more pronounced with increased engine RPM. It appears louder near the water pump. The water pump isn't leaking, when I spin the pump it rotates once before stopping. I removed the pump and am waiting for a replacement...
  18. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    After a mud trail my JKU 2012 3.6 auto starts to have a strange noise in front of the engine. Here it is how this sound look like: It sounds like a siren. Bystanders turn and stare. Aside from the noise there are no ill effects, but I can stand it no longer. The noise does not seem to be...

    OK from the top. Bought a 94 with a 2.5. Dec. 23 Christmas present for wife. The guy I bought it from mostly drove it locally to play in. I drove it a little over 300 miles at around 65 to get it home. Drove it a couple more days and noticed that it was overheating on me. First step replace...
