    Default 1989 Jeep Cherokee Rattleing

    I have a 1989 Jeep Cheorkee with a 4.0 6cyl and 4 wheel drive that started randomly rattling.. It does not do it very often while idling or parked. I does it once I get going 30-40mph and when it happens I hit the brakes it seems louder when slowing down. It sounds just like a bolt being struck by the metal radiator fan. I thought it was the water pump so I changed it all out. Still have the noise.. It is definitly an outside noise sounds like a metal part is about to be sheard off by a fan blade..I have gone through the trouble shooting of my Haynes book but do not see anything that is helpful.. Thanks..

    Hi BuckyD,

    Noises can be difficult problems to track down. We really can't diagnose problems (especially noises) from a remote location, so you're going to have to keep looking. Is the noise engine speed related? If so, concentrate on the engine-mounted accessories. If it's vehicle-speed related, look at the wheels, brakes and drivetrain.
