I became a proud Jeep owner last September, and absolutely love it, but gotta say it has some quirks about it I can't figure out. I am hoping I can get some light shed on this ambiguous truck.
First thing is a strong rattle felt in the dashboard at low RPM's. Sometimes the steering seems to "howl" or "moan" at low speeds also. This rattle is annoying and seems to suggest something is loose and vibrating? Can't figure it out and it's constant. I.E. turning into a parking space, it rattles excessively and is very loud.
Second thing is acceleration. It does fine but by no means is it smooth, and it seems to almost choke a lit bit around 65 mph.
Third thing is the idle. What is normal for this truck? Mine is idling anywhere from 400-500 rpm when heat/air is on, and drops as low as 300 rpm when the heat/air is off. It seems low to me and I can feel it vibrating under my feet.
I dunno. This could be normal Jeep behavior or it could some underlying problems. Either way it's driving me nuts....any suggestions?
