Having problems with your Jeep Grand Cherokee ?

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee full time AWD. The car idles fine and I am able to select gears smoothly but I hear a grinding noise when I put it into drive. The sound continues after completely stopping but sounds fine when in reverse. I think it might have something to do with the front diff because this problem started when the jeep went half way off a ditch.

Answers :

Without the benefit of actually getting under there and looking/listening, the best I could offer is a guess. Neither your front or rear differentials can make noise when they are not turning. However, if you see either driveshaft turning when the Jeep is in gear and standing still, I'd suspect that you either have broken gears in the center section or a broken axle.
If the noise is coming from the transmission or transfer case, you will need to find out why. Internal noises from either generally require replacement or a rebuild regardless of the original cause.
