I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty CRD. I've had it for about two years now when I bought it from it's previous owner. My check engine and battery light came on before a long trip for Christmas. I replaced the battery and everything seemed good....until I got to Illinois where everything just died. Apparently a piece on the alternator, where the belt runs, was loose. This cause the belt to break and bust some pieces of plastic but nothing major that we could see. We replaced the alternator, belt, and battery altogether that week. I drove it the 12 hours back home no problem. Just yesterday the ETC light came on. I'm just looking for any advice on what the issue could be. Currently my Liberty is at a service station spitting out codes to try and tell me whats going to be wrong.....in the meantime I am trying to do some research. Any help is appreciated!!!!

Just did a little quick research;
ETC= Electronic Throttle control.
Dodge durango's had this problem and it turned out to be either the EGR valve or it's gasket.
From the Jeep CRD forum: "Most likely a wet or failed speed or ABS sensor (maybe wire?). Give it some time to completely dry out & see if it goes away." This guys started acting up while in the rain, accellerating and brakeing at the same time in an attempt to dry the brake pads. ETC light started flashing and would not stop until computer was re-set.

Does anyone know were to buy cheap injectors for that 2.8 CRD Vitori Motor in the 2005 Jeep. BOSCH dealers want $380 to $600, and that is just like being raped and robbed for a 6 inch half plastic half machined part.
Of course Jeep made the motor for two years and then the EPA raped us. Then we had bail Jeep/Dodge /Chrysler out with our tax dollars. They and Government motors should hand those out like dime store candy after what they did to taxpayers.

get the part number and use it to search, sometimes you can get parts alot cheaper that way. I am sure that the same fuel injectors are used in other applications, it's just finding them!

Thanks unclebob, I have been doing that. The cheapest so far has been $319.
I have been trying to research cross referenced brands but have had no luck yet. I have a friend at Oreilys that is doing some research too. Hopefully something will turn up. I pulled the old one and cleaned it , and replaced the 14mm O ring. It should fire again but i think I have air in my fuel

Thanks again for the advice I have found a number of sources although they are priced in different ranges some as much as $ 500 difference., with Mopar being the highest. The lowest I found even with shipping is overseas. Using the GOOGLE CHROME browser translator I have found some in the $230 to $260 range, from France to the Ukraine and in to South America. I thought this may help other folks. Below I enclose the numbers with the last numbers being the foreign interchange numbers.
5159970AA , 5159970AA , Mopar
Manufacturer Part Number: BOSCH0986435128 , 0986435128 ,
BOSCH FUEL INJECTORS
Interchange Part Number: Overseas UK, Brazil, France, Italy

Gary: The EPA has had standards long before the Jeep Crd failed it's owners. My "green Beast" was a good body just a cheaply made junky engine, that was Jeep designers fault for looking for the least expensive CRD they could put in at the time. Form the very first in 2005 when these CRD's came out the Service Tec's felt these engines were going to be big problems, and they were and still are for many. Was blessed to have Jeep call me and ask if they could buy back my CRD. My CRD was in the shop 25 times in 16 months, not a stellar record that's for sure. I was so glad to get out of that CRD.
The CRD's that seem to have been better is ones that did not get "de-tuned & a new torque converter" That totally destroyed the HP and pulling power. Who is to blame for that?
Here is wahts really stupid, the Jeep GC is going to have a nother V.M. CRD soon as ALPAR has reported.
I wonder how many CRD's were bought back by Jeep, and where they wound up? When I trace my old "Green Beast" the VIN does not show up. I t might have been shipped to a foregin country, which is not unheard of.

If your 'Green Beast' was sent abroad, it must have lost its emission control add-ons along the way and should work fine today, just like mine
I see more gassers here nowadays, because local prices for diesel and gas are practically even price wise and mileage between both types of engines is practically the same.
I kept my 15 year old Toyota diesel for the city and the Jeep is mainly used for long trips and holidays with the family
#11288 of 11454 Jumped Timing Belt
Mar 22, 2012 (12:34 pm)
Hi All, I need to state before I type that I am as far from a mechanic as Tim Tebow is to a pocket QB. My 2006 CRD with 120K miles threw its timing belt. From YouTube videos and other posts I can assume at minimum there is rocker and valve damage. Yes I now know the manual said to change the timing belt at 80K!
Here is my issue. My neighbor, who rebuilds Hondas, wants to tear into it and fix it this spring. The parts are probably going to be upwards of 2K I figure. Not being a mechanic and relying on a volunteer to fix an engine does not appeal to me. Anyone think there is a market for a CRD with internal issues?

How far are you from Maine. I'd be interested in buying the old engine. You may have bent rods and or damaged pistons. As well.
