#133 of 181 Engine Modification Recommendations?
Sep 23, 2011 (4:37 pm)
Thanks again to all the regular contributers to this Great Forum. I have done most of the maintenance and repairs on my Jeep myself with some help from this forum and my Factor Service Manuals (Hard Copy Books & CD).
2006 Jeep Liberty CRD - 129k miles, stock everything, original EGR, second engine block/head/turbo/water pump at 40k miles. I plan to change my timing belt before winter and would appreciate some suggestions about what else I shoud do to maximize the life and performance of my gutsy little diesel.
It seems like a good idea to disable the EGR before it creates the big problems some people have reported. There are a few other upgrades that sound worthwhile like the Pro-Vent system. I can't do everything of course, but I am willing to spend about $1,000.00 this time to buy a little peace of mind. I will do all the labor myself with the help of my diesel mechanic brother-in-law.
My transmission has so many miles on it, I am reluctant to invest in a shift kit or other upgrade. No doubt it will need a total rebuild in the not so distant future, but it is working great now. Should I consider replacing fuel injectors or glow plugs or just wait for them to fail?
#135 of 181 2006 Jeep Liberty LTD. Auto transmission shifter problem.
Sep 25, 2011 (3:08 pm)
The shifter goes all the way from park to 1st and back to park without pushing in the button. Also when I put it in park it will not allow me to remove the ignition key. If I remember correctly you are supposed to push the little button on the front of the shifter to get out of park and past drive and back into park again. This just happened out of the blue when moving the vehicle in my driveway.
Any ideas on how to fix this would be great. Especially if I can do this myself.

First time poster here so hope someone can help. I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD and my wife was driving down the highway doing 65 and it jerked hard and when she pushed on the accelerator it just reved up like it was in neutral. She pulled to the median and called me i told her to try pulling it into first and it would pull a little but was bogging the engine down so then i told her to put it in 4wheel hi and the front tires started spinning like they were trying to pull the jeep by themselves. So long story short i got off work checked it out and it will not do anything in reverse but in drive it tries to pull but boggs engine and hesitates. Please anyone give me some idea if its tranny or transfer case or something else

Gee I wonder if you busted a differential....

The diff is fine.
Around 79K miles, the TCM was throwing several codes and they replaced part # 4799758-ad sensor. Apparently this is the one and only, but I am not a tranny expert (obviously from my other posts). The replaced line pressure sensor resolved my problems for about 9K miles.
Now at 88K miles, I am getting P0700 (MIL request from TCM) and P0714 (transmission internal temp sensor intermittent).
I am looking at the service manual for the 545RFE. Can anyone verify/validate for me that the internal fluid temp sensor is integrated into the Transmission Range Sensor (TRS)? if this is true, it looks like I would have to pull the valve body.... but is the TRS integrated into the valve body (i.e. do I have to purchase the whole valve body new) or is the TRS a replaceable/separate component?
Does this make sense?
*update* crap, looks like a $380 part and few hours of wrench-time, correct?

I forgot one very important note to my last post.
I bought a ODB-II code reader, when my tranny started acting up around 88K miles. When I reset the codes, the transmission shifts like it just "rolled off the factory line."
It might be two minutes, two hours, or two days later; and it sets P0700 and P0714 agains and starts shifting roughly.
Rinse and repeat. Same random results.
Is there a way to splice a resistor into one for the wires from the 24-pin connector an send the TCM the expected voltage, all of the time? I know that's some serious stupid-engineering... but it drives very well WHEN the codes aren't set.

I have 2004 Liberty, simliaar thing happened. It ended up that the throttle sensor was gone and resulted in burning out the clutches in the tranny. Long story short 57k miles and a 2250.00 bill for a new transmission! I was not thrilled. This happen this week, Wish you luck.
#142 of 181 Clutch does not disengage
Oct 26, 2011 (5:16 pm)
Hi there. I come seeking your advice. My 2004 Liberty seems to have a bad clutch. It has 78K miles on it and I have never done any sort of service on the clutch. I am not sure if it could be the transmission which is why I came here hoping you might help me.
It was loping for a couple days in the lower gears after the clutch was disengaged. Then finally, it wouldn't pull the car at all in any gear.
The dealer wants $1200 to replace everything (his words) and $900 to just replace the clutch. My questions are these:
1) What does a clutch problem look like as opposed to a transmission problem?
2) Have you seen this sort of problem resolved and if so, how?
