Agree that it's most likely the serpantine belt
My 2011 needed a replacement. Became noisy when accelerating, and was most abundant when it got wet (when it rained or after I washed the Jeep).
Pretty cheap replacement and with your 2012 (that's what your profile says you drive), even if that turns out not to be the cause, it definitely doesn't hurt to get a new belt on there
Okay, I'll be the dumbass of the day. I still have no idea which pully-pullies to buy. Do I replace one? All of em? Ive'never replaced this stuff before. Just want to get it right. I'm not intentionally trying to be a PITA
well I am not there listening to your engine so I can't say. pull the serpentine belt and spin the idler pulleys. open the hood and look inside the engine bay and pinpoint where the squeal is coming from. If it is beyond your ability you might just take to a shop. I have found mechanic stethoscopes are cheap and work great but again unless someone is there who knows what you need to replace. it could the the water pump making the noise.
Thanks for the advice. I am capable of doing the work myself and prefer to do so. I also thought of the water pump. I'll take your advice and remove the belt and check the pullies for noise. I appreciate your time and thank you for your help.
hey guys. I recently put new wheels and tires on the JKU and kept my oem sensors in the new combo. I drove home with the old combo which had no sensors in it and i got no lights. Then later that week i put the new combo on and when i turned on my JSCAN only one sensor was reading tpms pressure...
I broke off not one but two seized bolts from my rock sliders...... What method is best for removing them so I can replace with new bolts in the frame body?
My rock sliders are like new, but I’m at the point that buying new ones and paying the shop to install may be my best option if I...
Hi, I read somewhere (probably on JL forum) that the 3.3 are really long and they ride a little harsh. Someone had suggested for JKu to get the 2 dr version for softer ride and at my 3.5 lift to get the 1.5-2.5 in Falcons instead of the 3-4.5in Falcons since they are so long. Has anyone done this?
Background: I am new to Jeeps in general and WranglerForum as well. I am also fortunate enough to have a nice shop at my home where I can easily work, I also have many of the tools necessary to do everything on our JK or my other toys. However, since this is our first jeep and I know a lot of...
Ok please don't beat me up or flame me for asking the worlds oldest question, but did anyone get 4 solid inches of lift in the front from the Mopar 2" kit?
Maybe I got the wrong springs is what I worry about now.
I did not buy the kit but piece-mealed it because I installed new Bilstein 5100's...
