Jeep Cherokee Common Problems and Solutions

Trim rattling

Problem:

Are you hearing a rattling noise from the interior trim as you drive? If so, then the most likely causes are the boot trim and the trim panels around the door buttons.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to identify exactly which trim is causing the rattling noise. Once you have identified where the rattle is coming from, you will need to remove the trim, pack it out and then re-fit the trim. This should rectify the problem.

Engine Misfiring

Problem:

The spark plugs on the Cherokee are prone to failure. If you are finding that the engine is idling poorly with irregular misfiring then an issue with a spark plug will be the most likely cause. There should be consistent revs when the engine is idling.

Models affected:

Solution:

Jeep designed modified spark plugs to rectify the situation. You will need to fit the revised spark plugs to resolve the issue. Watch the video below to see how to change the spark plugs yourself:

Suspension problem

Problem:

If you are hearing a knocking noise from the suspension as you travel around corners it is most likely caused by a problem with the ball joints, which caused Jeep to issue a recall in 2004 (see below).

Models affected:

Solution:

Jeep fitted a revised ball joint on recalled vehicles. The manufacturer should fix this problem free of charge as it was caused by a manufacturing fault.
