NOthing in the history I can see, but a long tire valve and curbscraping do not go to gether very well, ask for short valves nexttime you are at the tire shop. If it still had the original aluminum tire pressure sensor stems,they are 7 years old. That is about all expect.

The parking brake pads are the same brake pads that stop your vehicle when you apply the brake petal. This is a mechanical system instead of a hydraulic one and so, yes, the parking break is needed in the event that the hydraulic system fails or in case you should have to change the tire. The last...
Could be many reasons but in any case have a trusted mechanic  inspect those brakes NOW! before you have an accident.
By "fit" if you mean can be wedged into the engine compartment,  then a lot. If by fit, you mean bolt-in, then the question gets a  little muddier. The 4.0L block was used in Wranglers and Cherokees  for YEARS, and it can be adapted to fit most Wrangler or Cherokee  models with the level of...

If it's not that, take a close look at what the fluid...

This happens because the flipper that holds it closed is weakened. This is not because it has a mind of it's own. Buy a new flipper or bend the one you have to make it work or take to the dealer for a fix. Owning a jeep either means getting creative with repairs or paying big bucks to have the...
Maybe because there's no such car? The last year for the Cherokee was 2001.   == Answer ==   I had the same problem on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee. One reason it will stay on is after you wash it or a good amount of water gets in the engine. If it is below freezing the water freezes in the...
Check the little rubber hoses under the hood that lead to the washers and then check the washer fluid container for fluid. Likely you have either a vacumn problem or a cracked hose that goes from the washer tank to the sprayer. Do some basic trouble shooting and if that doesnt solve your problem...
Yep. Might even cause the engine to stop running forever when it overheats and seizes up. Your engine loves you and wants you to stop asking questions and fix the coolant system. Something is causing you to have low coolant levels and you need to figure out why. Take it to a reputable shop for...

Get a new set from your local parts store and then its just a matter of replacing the old with the new. No rocket science involved. Make sure that you follow the path of the old wires with the existing clips so that the new wires don't come into contact with excessive heat. Easy-Peasy change out.......
  Increasing tire diameter would increase your speed at the same engine RPM.. So technically you could now obtain the same speed by getting less work out of your engine. (lower rpms) Unfortunately though, you just got pulled over because you forgot to recalibrate your speedometer.... More along...

Depending on how much gas prices are in your area, and how low you let your fuel get to, it could be anywhere from $60-$70 to fill up the tank.

Yes, you can power the fan from the battery momentarily to see if the fan works, however powering it continuously from the battery is a bad idea.
