up2nogood Thanks, i'll check it out SOON, cause i'm freezing my ass off on the way to work! I just love driving my Jeep, should have bought one years ago! The noise seems like an easy fix, I hope the heater is too!

dan188 heater issue is definitely common. My 98 had a stuck blend door, so when I moved the temp control lever I thought I was changing the heat but really I wasn't doing anything.

distortedtj Welcome to the forum.

Heater issue....Check to see if your blend door is broken...common.

Sweak issue.... Common with alot of vehicles. Usually just the back of the steering wheel rubbing on the plastic cover over the column.

VARedLeg82 I'm not real sure about the heater, because most wranglers come stock with the "burn your @$$-hairs" heater.

As for the squeak, go inside the engine compartment and look at where the steering column comes through the firewall. There's a rubber boot there that if you lube it up, the squeak will go away. It's a pretty common problem, so no worries.

Welcome, and happy wheeling!

Storm27m Mine does the same squeak. I figure it's something I need to lube up but I haven't got around to it yet. I'll be following this thread to see what people say. Sorry, but I can't help with your heater issue.

Hi guys and gals, another newbie here........ I just purchased a Red 97' hardtop sport, 4.0, 5 speed. It runs great, but the heater doesn't blow hot at all and the steering wheel/column makes a low pitch squeak the first time you turn it in the morning.

The engine gets right up to @180° in a couple of minutes, but very little heat even with the fan on full blast. It also seems that the amount of air blowing out isn't proportional to the jet turbine exhaust sound emminating from the dash. I searched a couple of threads on the heat issue, but haven't had the time to try anything yet.

I look forward to having a great time and learning a lot on this forum, so see you later.
