2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Noise (4.0L) - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This was a strange one, a little more than a week after I put a starter on this engine it comes back with this horrible engine noise and I decided to investigate. I wasn't able to find the source of the noise and later in the day after they took the Jeep back the engine apparently let go for good. My friend then sold it to someone with a salvage yard and I haven't been able to get hold of him to find out what happened to it. I hope I'm able to track down the new owner and find out what the deal was with it and post a video response when I do, till then I'm afraid it's going to remain a mystery. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Engine noise video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9DP7jhX9XU Jeep starter video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-GuNNRr9EQ Power balance test http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAOmUjAjNjE Many of you understood where I was coming from when making the original video but I felt that I needed to go into a little more explanation based on some of the other comments in the original video. Every technician does things differently based on their personal experience and I for one respect your input so feel free to comment as much as you like and question what I do, it is after all how I will grow and get better at what I do. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG
