All vehicles need repairs at one time or another and Jeeps are no exception. Due to extreme temperature fluctuations that all vehicles go through, your hoses, gaskets and belts will deteriorate and need replacing. Items such as the clutch, brakes and tires experience wear and tear over time. Keeping up with these repairs can help save you time and money in the long run. Some of the most common repairs our technicians see are:
While it sounds very serious, no one has ever actually died, or even been injured while experiencing a Jeep Death Wobble, which is the violent, uncontrollable shaking of the vehicle. It often starts when the vehicle hits a bump or pothole. If you experience the Death Wobble, don’t panic. Simply ease your vehicle to a complete stop at the side of the road and the shaking will subside. A Death Wobble can be caused by one worn or damaged part, however, it’s more often due to multiple components becoming loose or damaged. While no one has come to bodily harm from a Death Wobble, it’s still very important to have a Pickering’s ASE Certified expert inspect your Jeep right away and make the repairs necessary to prevent it from happening again and prevent further damages.
The differential bearings, seals and gears in your Jeep can fail, requiring replacement. Don’t ignore noises coming from your differentials as it can lead to major problems and permanent damage. Bring your Jeep in for a full vehicle health inspection to identify problems early and avoid costly repairs.
TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module)
The TIPM on your Jeep vehicle controls all electrical functions from turning on your windshield wipers to flipping on the stereo. Typical problems that result from a faulty TIPM system include the fuel pump not turning off, unexplained battery drainage and the engine stalling while driving. Faulty fuel relays are very common in 2011-2013 vehicles and should be inspected by one of our ASE Certified expert technicians right away before you find yourself stranded with a dead battery or late for work because your Jeep won’t start.
It’s common for Jeeps to develop power steering component leaks and failures over time. The power steering pump may go out or the hydraulic lines may begin to leak fluid and need replacing. If you notice tightness in the steering wheel that makes it difficult to turn, your steering gear box may need to be replaced. It’s dangerous to continue to drive with a damaged steering gear box so be sure to bring your Jeep to Pickering’s Auto Service right away. We will make the necessary repairs and get you back on the road (or off road) safely.
TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
Due to normal wear and tear, your Jeep vehicle’s throttle position sensor can go bad. The symptoms of a defective TPS are a check engine light, bucking or jerking, or a hesitation when pressing on the accelerator. A faulty throttle position sensor will dramatically affect your gas mileage. Be sure to schedule an appointment with a Pickering’s ASE certified technician and have your throttle position sensor replaced as soon as possible.
Oil Leaks, Rear Main Seal
A leak in your rear main seal is a common issue for Jeep vehicles, and is often first detected by seeing oil spots on the pavement. Anytime your vehicle is leaking oil, it’s harmful to your engine and should be fixed as soon as possible. Bring your Jeep to Pickering’s Auto Service right away for a proper diagnosis and repairs.
