I'm back with a 1998 Cherokee 5.2L

Yea.. i didnt sell any of my OLD jeeps, but my XXX father-in-law might of sent my 63 Truck to the scrap yard -- divorce is despicable.

I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee with a 5.2L/Auto ... with a weird tapping sound. Not continuous but not exactly motor RPM related or speed ...

Its kinda loud but not like piston slap ( gosh forbid )

A cracked flywheel usually follow the motor RPM --- no?

Need to fix door auto locks and rear wiper ....

16.3Mpg isnt tooooo bad but i think it should be better ....

Yes i do wish it was a limited, but you take what you can find in your price range ...

I don't know if it's of help, but our '97 Grand Cherokee had a strange rattling/tapping/knocking noise which I couldn't figure out.

It was the water pump, the fan attaches to it and the bearing was shot. The fan was rattling around making a terrible noise.

That was on a 4.0, but the setup may be similar.

Welcome back Mike! It's been a long time. Sorry to hear about the troubles, life will get better. Time. I don't have any insight on your noise issue. If memory serves your internal tinkering and diagnostic skills will get it straightened out!

Would you Believe it was the Flex plate inspection plate !!!!

It was bent from past people .. doing the same thing i did .. bend it out a bit because i didn't want to remove the starter ...

After the Starter was removed and the plate was straightened out (put all back ).. the stupid noise went away .... GO FIGURE !!!!!
