Newbie Jeep owner 2007 Jeep Commander
Hello all. I'm new to the forum. I'm mainly just looking for tips on some repairs for my Jeep. I recently bought a 2007 Jeep Commander 4.7L limited Trail Rated. I'm having issues with the front brakes on Ice. It seems the drivers side is shuddering when I press the brakes. It only happens on Ice. A little more about the Jeep. I won't go into full details but rather a general history since I bought it. It was bought as a local insurance auction sale. It was sold as running and driving. Anyhow the motor was bad due to cylinder 7. The motor was replaced with a used one to get it up and running. Upon getting it put back together we diagnosed it as having a bad clockspring. We replaced it with one from the yards and it worked with no dash lights showing errors. The Jeep passed Colorado emissions perfectly. The evening before I was to get the emissions someone rearended the Jeep. There was substantial damage to the bumper, blown tire and such. The video of the accident showed the Jeep and how it was pushed forward. Anyhow the tire pressure system is out of whack on the opposite side of the Jeep. I had the Jeep codes checked and supposedly there are no codes for the ABS or anything. The OBD2 shows no codes, no it wasn't an in depth reader, just a basic autozone one.
We also replaced the front end struts and springs. Thanks for reading.
