Got another little problem, need some help and insight...
So this is issue #4. Ive had this jeep (Commander, 2006, 4.7, V8, 87000miles) for about 5 months now (30 day warranty is up). I have had a variety of issues that have been resolved up to this point.
-lights on dash
-Junk water pump/coolant leak
-Rear rotor trashed
Last problem was 4 days ago. Grinding on the rear "RIGHT" rotor. Had both rear rotors and pads replaced by my mechanic and the grinding on the "RIGHT" wheel was gone.
Within the next 24 hours, I noticed a new noise in the rear. This time it was (hard to explain, but...) a whirling kind of whining, metalic sounding whoo whoo whoo whoo on what sounds like the rear "LEFT" section of the vehicle when making a "LEFT" turn. Its kind of comparable to a pulsating squeal but with a lower end tone/frequency.
Breaks on or off, it makes the same noise and is seemingly more obvious when everything is warmed up. I dont think it makes the sound for the first few minutes or so of driving, if so, its more subtle.
Im scared to death that its an issue with the rear axle, diff, bearings, hub...
Or it could have something to do with the new rotors? Ive put something like 150 miles on since the rotor job a few days ago, so I would assume that they are pretty broken in. Ton of highway trips over the weekend and everything else seems perfect. Just while making left turns.
Hope its something simple but if this sounds familiar to anyone, please chime in. Thanks! (Still in love with this beast by the way)
