2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes rattling noise when in idle or reverse, coming from the rear.

Asked by May 27, 2014 at 07:54 PM about the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When going in reverse, regardless of if the car is warmed up or not, there is a loud
rattling sound coming from the right rear. The sound used to only happen when in
reverse but now occurs when in idle most of the time. There is also a grinding noise
when I make right hand turns. Exhaust pipe looks to be loose but not loose enough to
be causing this. When I go over bumps there is no rattling sound most of the time.
When this is happening I am in 2WD. I haven't tried it in 4WD since the winter.

When I see a person list a lot of unrelated stuff all rolled together I am a bit concerned about their d.i.y. skill level. When it comes to the muffler I might tell you how easy that is and walk you through but when it comes to safety I will only say : please find an honest mechanic,get a written quote and do it before a wheel falls off,
