I own a 2006 CRD 4x4 Liberty and, rather than the Provent I changed the airbox to a V-6 airbox from my 2007 gas Liberty and, re-routed the oily hose to the side of the box. It filters and, lets the fumes get re-entered without any mess. The other line goes in right by the turbo intake is now blocked off and, unused. The Jeep runs great and, stays clean, the small amount of oil in the airbox is collected in a residual container and, I dump it at oil change. I am soon to go for the GDE Full Torque and, stage 2 turbo upgrades as well as the TCM and, HD Torque Converter. I can hardly wait to get this all done. My MPG HWY is 26-28 right now but, I think thats due alot to the Cat Back Magnaflow 2.5 system I fixed for it.

sounds like a neat substitute for the Provent, can you post a pic?
#11268 of 11454 2005 - Fuel Filter Leak fix
Oct 24, 2011 (1:55 pm)
My 2005 was stopping on the highway until I diagnosed the problem as a leak in the fuel filter mounting setup. Stock system has a doughnut shaped heater set between the filter and filter head. My fix: replace the filter mount AND filter with a Caterpillar brand. No problems since... AND I buy the Davidson brand filter for only $8 (yes, eight dollars). ROI in about 2 years .
Note: when using the Caterpillar brand mount, there's no room for the hand pump. You must place a metal blank over the pump mounting spot, but before you do, hand grind a small channel between the input and output holes to allow fuel flow. I used a Dremel tool.
I had a pump placed in my tank, so I'm not dependent on the hand pump when I change filters.
Hope this helps someone out there.
#11269 of 11454 Temp Guage only at 1/3, Thermostat problem?
Nov 02, 2011 (4:23 am)
I am a new member and searched on the forum for this issue, but was unsuccessful.
If you know of a thread please let me know.
I just bought a 2005 CRD and now that it is cold, 35F in the morning, the temp guage never gets to the middle. Only about half way...is this normal.
Also, I commute 85 miles round trip, mixed hiway and city driving and am getting 22mpg, where this fall I was getting 25mpg...and the heater does not blow hot, only warm air...
I was wondering if the thermostat may be stuck open...
Also there is a small light on that says type 43 every now and then....
Thanks for your help, from Summerfield NC!

When these thermostat's go out they tend to stay open. Your engine will run most efficiently when the needle in straight up.
You need to replace the thermostat ASAP to protect your engine and improve your MPG.
They are very strange units, the thermostat is sealed inside a casting, thus a $10 thermostat costs over $100 because you have to replace the entire assembly.
If you go to the Lostjeeps forum and do a search, there was a amature mechinist that was taking peoples old units and adapting them so that the thermostat inside was replaceable with a $10 unit. His charge was around $120 (and this was for the spacers and adapters he needs to purchase and very little for labor), if you sent him your unit. But from then on it was a much easier replacement and much cheaper. I believe he has a few he keeps in stock so it is quich exchange. Last time I E mailed him was about 9 months ago, so I mam not sure if he is still doing it or not.

Thanks! I just copied this and sent it to my mechanic here in High Point NC and he has a machine shop buddy, and they are going to take a look at it...if they are successful, then I will add his contact information for others....Cheers!
#11272 of 11454 Tapped my EGR Valve
Nov 09, 2011 (8:23 pm)
At 44000 miles my 2006 CRD check engine light came on so I bought a $50.00 code reader from Walmart.com and you know it....It was the EGR !!! So I crawled under the Jeep to try and get a look at where it was located and could see the METAL end of the EGR where it bolted on. I thought I would try tapping it with a socket extension about 30-40 times from the bottom LIGHTLY !! Re-Set the code and drove it pretty hard after it was warmed-up, blew out alot of black smoke and the code has not came back on after about 1000 miles. Thought this might help someone else also.....I tapped LIGHTLY.......
#11273 of 11454 CRD runs like new after 8 years without EGR

I haven't been into the local Jeep stealership for quite some time. Daimler got my address when I bought the Jeep back in 2003 and now FIAT calls for a subscription of 120 USD to be part of the Fiat-Jeep owners club. It seems they'll never understand
My only issue this year was the water in fuel warning light staid ON and this forced me to disconnect the water sensor plug underneath the fuel filter. There was nothing else to worry about, no oil losses, simply a beautiful piece of mechanics that I intend to keep another decade.
I wish you all a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Dieseling Year
#11274 of 11454 Jeep Liberty selc trac transmission issue
Dec 22, 2011 (10:33 pm)
I recently purchased a Liberty 2.8 CRD. The problem i am having is that when i come to a complete stop there is a little bump what i believe is the transmission disengaging or gearing down. is this normal. i am not really accustomed to the auto transmission. It happens more obviously when i come to a quick abrupt stop. I had a chrysler 3.3L that did the same thing except that i sold the car before the issue was resolved.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The tranny situation is typical Chrysler engineer stupidity. If the F37 torque converter recall has not been done, DO NOT do it.
