On Friday evening my Jeep started making this noise like the wheel on wheel of fortune spinning (sorry but best way to explain it). Was told that it was a lifter knocking so oil was checked and 1 quart was added which didn’t help at all. 13hrs later the noise got a little louder and the steering wheel shook hard for a split second and it died. It will not start back or attempt to even turn over. When you turn the key it clicks one time and nothing. Today for starters the oil was drained and it had water in it as did the oil pan and where you put oil into your vehicle there was lots of oil deposit. Thinking it was a cracked head they were checked and all is good. So maybe the rocker arm broke and threw a rod…all of that is fine. Mechanic told me to take out spark plugs and if there was water in the cylinders and on top of the pistons then that would lock up the motor….everything’s fine. So he told us to try and turn the motor by hand and if it turned then it wasn’t locked up. It will turn but very very little and it is very very hard to turn. ANY SUGGESTIONS on what to try next would be GREAT. I am a home health nurse that needs my vehicle, this is my only vehicle and as a single mom cant afford anything else. PLEASE HHHEEELLLLPPPPP!!! Thank you!

I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee sport. Straight six. It will not start. It will turn over and that’s it. We have replaced plugs, rotor, distributor cap. Fuel pump and filter. and the crank shaft sensor. When I look in the oil fill hole, it looks like the rocker arms are moving. I don’t think it is the timing belt. Help

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2L V-8, about 253K miles.  Used oil analysis is showing very high nickel (24 ppm in oil used for 3270 miles).  A previous test done 61k miles earlier was high but not critical (11 ppm in 2045 miles).  Both tests show very low levels of other wear metals, well in the normal range.  Does anybody know what parts in this engine may be coated with or plated with nickel that might be wearing out?

I have a 2000 Grand Cherokee Jeep 2WD.  I had my “check engine light” looked at by a car repair shop. They told me that I had an Evap code of P0043.  The mechanic said that the price would be around $300 to replace canisters, etc. Is this a good price? and what are the problems that this could cause with my car if it is not taken care of?

hello,my problems with my 4 cyl efi auto 1600cc  jeep is about 50-60m into accelerating up an incline, say 10deg,i start to loose engine power.the harder i push on the pedal, the worse it gets till i almost stall i back off and the jeep slowly finds its way.sometimes if i keep the pedal pushed down,the jeep will suddenly take off as if i went from 2 cyl to 4 cyl.

the other problem is when  cruising at 100kmh the jeep normally sits on about 3200rpm.if i back off to say 90kmh,the jeep will downshift and rpms shoot up to about 3500rpm and then it feels as though its trying to find the right gear.another words,i cant stay at a constant 90kmh without the tack and engine sound going up and down.the jeep is a daihatsu rocky 1994.please help
