2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 8 Cyl 4.7L
Car roars when started
Whether warm or cold, my JGC V8 roars when it is started. It seems to do so more when it hasn't been started in a few days. If I shut it off for a few minutes and then start it, it seems to do it a little quieter. I feel sorry for my neighbors in the mornings and it is a little embarrassing. Is there any simple fixes? I have replaced the transmission, fuel pump, radiator fan assembly, ujoints, and recently the gas cap and abs brake sensors...none of which would have had any likely affect on the issue I am now attempting to solve. Poor PeeJ...it is always something :(
When does the roaring sound occurs? Is it during idling or driving? or accelerating? Where do you hear it? Is it in the engine compartment or under your vehicle?
