I didn't have any noises in my 06 till I changed the muffler and tail pipe now I get a rattle/vibration at certain rpm and speed. Mechanic said it was a default in the new muffler wasn't welded correctly, cheap Napa junk.
Not good, mine needs rockers front to rear and a touch up under the doors. But no where near as bad as that. Anything can be fixed of course but too be done right, it's going too be pricey. I'd offer 1800$.
Like I said mine uses about a quart and a half between changes but I go 7000 on conventional oil. Try Lucas oil stabilizer, it helped mine a lot with oil consumption and any lifter noise or piston slap.
Well sad too say even quality parts can make noise, especially brake components. Try what I just and see if you can hear the same noise if you just pull ahead instead of backing up. I'd bet money it's a sticking caliper.
I'm not arguing with you on what there called im going by part names. Well I guess since my jeep has 150,000 miles they would be pretty wore out wouldn't they? I'm sure they have been replaced at some point.
Also I wouldn't nessicarly say my jeep rides horrible and Infact it's not real bad at all. I mean it's rough but not horrible for the roads we travel on, I will have to do front and rear sometime but just with Napa parts.
I'm sure mine are pretty well wore out considering its a 06 with 240,000kms. But I do have a very good mechanic in my opinion and he's never suggested replacing them yet. I will most likely get around to replacing them sooner then later. I just looked it up on Napa it's called a strut modular...
I was going to say it sounds like a sticking caliper too me too. It only happens when you back up and then when you pull ahead it comes loose. I bet if you parked and could pull ahead you wouldn't hear no noise at all. You also have to realize if you use cheapy parts they can make noise.
My 06 uses a little oil too. I just use conventional 5w30 Castrol and a quart of Lucas oil stabilizer. It helped a lot with the consumption of oil since I bought it. It uses about a quart and a half between changes. It's got 240,000 kms
Ive had my 06 for 4 years, it's all stock. I am a very outdoorsy person and spend 99% of my time in the woods when I can. I can go anywhere I want with my jeep and that's all that matters too me. I'm the type of person just drive it if it breaks fix it and carry on, no point in fixing something...
Yeah I don't know how long the replacement will last, if it wears I'll get a new one. Not really any wonder parts wear considering the roads we drive on are complete ****. At least here in Canada I don't know about where you live.
