Re: Another New noise...

ok, I started it this afternoon(cold start).... and it did the noise....coming from drivers side fender area.... went to the store....shut it off.....came back about 2 minutes later opened the door got in and it made the noise without the truck being on at all...now, from where I heard it....I know the brake booster and those 2 solid vacuum lines going into that small thing(I dont know what its called) are in that area.... could it be a vacuum issue?? I had one before and had all that pulled apart and am wondering now if I put it all back together correctly... is that little green bleeder thing supposed to be on the top or bottom of the vacuum thing(still dont know the name of it).... I found it very weird that it made the noise when the truck was off for about 2 minutes..... tried to get it to do it again with no luck.... but I'm slowly pinpointing something here....any ideas???

Re: Another New noise...

I would think that if you had a vacuum leak or other probelm with the vacuum system, you'd get an emmisions error or check engine soon light which would be because of the vacuum problem. Even a small leak will set an error code. Idle would change and maybe even rough running at speed. A buddy or someone else with you could be a help if they would turn off the key with you under the hood.

Re: Another New noise...

Any chance you could drape a microphone into the engine compartment near the source of sound and record it on some device (phone, tape recorder or voice recorder)? Maybe recording the sound would help you (or us) pinpoint it.

Re: Another New noise...

Maybe any picture to show the "I don't know how its called"?
The only thing i remember with 2 solid vacuum lines to it is the Purge solenoid, mounted on the LH fender and which is pulsed by the PCM (only when engine is warm) to create the vacuum for the EVAP canister. Don't recall any green bleeder and i'm miles away from my car, so can't have a look.

Re: Another New noise...

For every person out there that say's, I'll never buy another Jeep, there are those on the other side who say the same thing about the kind of ride they have. Once you get your Jeep going good, you may change your mind.

Re: Another New noise...

Did you leave any accessory in on which could have drained the battery? Did you check the battery connectors for being clean and properly fastened? Is the battery completely dead, or do you still have lights on the instrument panel and it will simply not start?

Re: Another New noise...

yes, there are lights, and the starter is clickin, I didnt leave anything on that could've drained it....but it drained nonetheless... terminals are clean and tight... it sometimes happens after a cold night.... and it is the battery specifically for my vehicle... I dont get it....I throw it on the charger for 20 minutes and it fires but I have to put pressure on the throttle until it charges itself up a little.... bad ground somewhere maybe?

Re: Another New noise...

It can be draining the battery charge, or the charging system is not working properly. Maybe a good start to check the battery voltage before starting and check again after starting, or take it to some place where they can check the charging system. If thats ok, then something is draining the charge, maybe a relay which doesn´t relax or so. But then you have to measure the current at one of the battery terminals with everything off and if there is a significant current (there is in fact always a low current for the memory functions of several components), then you have to remove the fuses one by one to see if the current will go down, to determine which component is causing it.
