Top 10 Jeep Repair Issues

Jeeps often keep running even when there are issues with them. We’ve heard many Jeep owners say, “I can’t believe it needs that much work, I haven’t done anything to it in years!” Jeeps just keep on truckin’!

Here are some of the more common repair and maintenance issues that jeep owners may encounter:

  1. Death Wobble – at high speeds, especially after hitting a bump, the steering wheel may shake & violently vibrate to the point that some drivers report their Jeep becomes difficult to handle. Jeep death wobble is usually caused by worn or damaged steering or suspension components.
  2. Ticking sound coming from the engine bay – the exhaust manifold may develop cracks after a number of heating up and cooling down cycles, and start to leak. If your exhaust is leaking you could notice a ticking sound emanating from the engine bay, reduced fuel mileage, or even a smell of exhaust in the engine bay: This a well-known issue and in most cases, replacing manifolds are often designed to better withstand cracking.
  3. Rough idling, misfires, or engine stumbling – a result of Clogged Fuel Injectors. Deposits build up on the injectors and have a tendency to disrupt the flow of fuel. Numerous Jeepers swear by various fuel additives that clean the injectors as you run the engine. If you try one of these and it doesn’t help, replacing the injectors may be required.
  4. Hard starting or stalling when stopped – can be the result of a Failing Throttle Position Sensor. The throttle body can clog with residue, keeping the sensor from working correctly. This affects your fuel air ratio, how the engine runs. In most cases, replacing or cleaning the Throttle Position Sensor fixes this issue.
  5. Horn honking and the windows to roll up and down randomly. As well, doors may seemingly lock and unlock themselves – the TIPM is Chrysler’s Totally Integrated Power Module that’s been known to have issues. This has resulted in a partial recall, but only when it comes to certain Jeep models.
  6. Windows suddenly drop down into the door while they were driving – the window regulators and motors are failing and will require replacing.
  7. Various engine oil leaks – engine oil leaks from the valve cover, oil pan and timing cover gasket are common issues.
  8. Rough idle or intermittent engine misfire and there might not be a check engine light – ignition wires can fail and result in engine performance problems.
  9. Fuel fill nozzle shuts off repeatedly while fueling – various items including the fuel tank, vapor recirculation tube, fuel fill tube, or EVAP system canister control valve may be faulty.
  10. Service 4WD System warning light – software updates are available to address erroneous illumination of the Service 4WD System.

FAQs about your Jeep:

We know you like to be informed with accurate information when it comes to buying and owning a car. So when it comes to maintenance, you want to be sure your Jeep enters a reputable, knowledgeable and reliable auto repair shop. In Boulder, CO Independent Motors is backed by years of experience and specialized expertise to answer the most frequently asked questions about your Jeep:

A: Because it has an axle design with a 5 link suspension. Any worn steering and suspension components can lead to Axle Shake or Tire Bounce resulting in uncontrolled death wobble in some cases.

A: Many different Jeep models have exhaust manifolds that develop cracks. In some cases these are large enough to allow escaping exhaust gasses to melt mounts and wires. In other words, it may be more than just an exhaust leak that needs to be repaired.

A: Because the increased angle of the Axles/Drive shafts cause extra wear on drive-shaft U-joints. This is another reason why it’s important to design and implement 4X4 modifications by an experienced professional.
