Having problems with your 2000 Jeep Cherokee ?
2000 jeep cherokee sport engine knock
\015 I have a 2000 cherokee sport 4.0 with 173000 miles and about 4000 miles ago it the engine started tapping when it was cold. Two days ago it went from a lite tapping when cold to an all out knock all the time, the knock is louder than the tapping was but it is still a loud tapping sound. Any ideas as to what it could be?\015
First you got to determen where its comming from, surley you can hear if its comming from top of engine or from oil pan, i'am not there to hear it so its hard to tell what it is, but i can take some gusses on what it could be. You said a while back it started tapping, that could be a loose or woren rocker or lifter does it run on all cyls. no miss, good oil pressure, could be a connecting rod. The millage is high and things do wear out.
Could be rod with that amount of miles
