I've got a 2007 4x4 5.7 HEMI G.C. with 54 thousand miles & it recently started making a "binding" noise that you can hear & feel through the driver's seat when I pull out of the drive way in the am. This is distinct & disturbing. It happens again when I leave work in the pm. After a couple hundred feet it goes away but is very distinct when it occurs which again is after the Cherokee sits all day or over night. I hear & feel it when I leave the drive way & make my left turn to get into the street.
I bought this Jeep from Carmax & it was initially a good buy but it also started to die at a red light too??? It idles at about 500rpm & tends to die at the red light especially if I had just been driving assertively "using" the HEMI; in fact, this almost assuredly guarantees it will sputter & die at the red light. It has always re-started but WTHeck?
I'm more concerned with the binding feel & sound that started a few days ago & this is the only 4x4 vehicle I've ever owned so I'm flying blind here...
Can anyone assist please???
