Happy Holidays to all!

I wanted to thank all who gave me great tips and ideas of what might have been causing the prob with my "noisy rear end"...mmhhh. Well, it was the pinion as many of you guessed. Wasn't too severe, if there is such a thing, as I do take good care with reg maintenance I'm told. Caught things in time before the got out of hand and did major damage. Parts were approx $150, labor $700...small fortune by me, good news is, it was all covered under extended warranty. I just wanted to give you fellas some feedback, sorry holiday prevented me from getting to this sooner. may have said it before, but let me reiterate, this is a great site and a great job you all are doing to take the time to respond to lay- people like myself. I thank you very much, have the bestest, happiest New Year, be healthy, wealthy and wise-r !!!
glad it worked out for you

matts37chev i have a question about how they messed with spare tire, as it could be rubbing or rattling around on something

next question, did you get the rearend oil or motor oil changed?

rearend may have a posi that is making noise and if they changed rearend oil, it may need a friction modifier added to quiet it down

lmsport Do you know if the vehicle was lifted to do the work, or was is done on a drive-on type lift machine?
Sometimes, lifting the vehicle can cause issues since the suspension travels alot more when allowed to fully droop. I have on multiple occasions seen shocks fail, and u-joints get in a bind.

T-bucket23 Did they rotate the tires by any chance. If so the lugs could be loose. Also if they attempted to change the rear end fluid and forgot to re-fill it or didnt fill it properly it will make noise and destroy the bearings.
Rear axle bearings are a very common issue on those so it could be coincidence as well. I would look at your slip and see exactly what they did, then post back

05 Jeep Cherokee sensors for rear end problem...

Hello All,

A follow up question to previous thread regarding "noise in the right rear of the jeep". Should the sensor alert me to this problem on the dash if it is the pinion, differential or anything along those line? The sensor is what caused me to go in for service. The only thing they said was found is low air pressure in the spare tire and a possible oil change (they said the oil change could have waited but I had them do it anyway). The noise was there after the oil change as I was driving home.

05 Jeep Grand Cherokee noise in right rear on acceleration.

Hello again everyone,

I have one more question on this, should my sensor on the Jeep have detected tis problem and had the "perform service" or "check engine" light come on the dash? It was the sensor that alerted me to go in to have my car serviced in the first place and all they found was the spare tire air pressure was low and a poss oil change (which according them, I could have waited to have done). Would the sensor warn about the whining noise in the rear normally, if it is the pinion, differential or anything serious like that?

05 Jeep Grand Cherokee noise in right rear on acceleration.

@SSedan, thanks for the tip...I will have that checked as well. this w/not be the first time I've had the tech actually cause the prob...once on purpose...... hence my UN "wuncbitten"...stranger things have happened...hope to get to the bottom of this.
12-15-2011 11:13 PM
SSedan64 That is very odd.
A possibilty:
Someone thought the Rear Diff oil was to be changed, so they removed the Cover & drained the oil, then realized it was an Engine oil change but, forgot to refill the Diff. I doubt they're that careless but, anything's possible. It would be easy to see if the Cover had been removed & replaced tho'. Hopefully it will be something simple & cheap.

@SSedan...my feelings exactly, didn't want to come out accusing anyone, but I am of the mind.....how do you go from, well oiled machine to this on same day of oil change...kinda make you go mmmhhh.
12-15-2011 10:55 PM
SSedan64 Hope one of the young Techs didn't do any Offroad joyriding while they had it. Something sounds Fishy there.
Did they only change the Engine oil?

@prostreet, I see what you mean, no the oil change was at a dealer, never go to the cheapos, had bad experience with loosing an engine on a cadi throwing a rod from dry cylinders (vacuuming oil out for speedy change). Will never go there again.....will take jeep to dealer where purchased on Mon AM, just needed to be armed with as much info as poss before opening myself up...some of the shops are full of sharks and us single ladies are "easy prey", "sitting ducks", or "plum for-the-picking", so I try to "head em off at the path", by being prepared. This is a great forum, I'm glad I found it..a lil time for research paid off. Wish some of you were near here where I could feel more confident in the service. Thank You & Best Wishes

No not the brand of oil. I was using the phase "cheap oil change place" instead of naming any names. The problems I've seen are from a "drive up" type place. They sell a differential oil change and didnt get the diff full of oil. I would think your level is fine if the dealer did it.
