#157 of 181 2004 Jeep Liberty shaking (Transmission?)
Dec 24, 2011 (6:03 pm)
My 2004 Jeep Liberty (3.7L) , which I have owned since new, is now experiencing a shaking or vibration, for lack of better term, when speed wanders between 40 and 50 mph or so. Full disclosure: the transmission seems and feels like it shifts in and out of gears beautifully...no issues whatsoever with engaging. There are no pops or whines. Doesn't feel like it is slipping either. But I cannot figure out what this vibration--or shaking--is related to. I topped off tranny fluid, not much difference. Next stop was mechanic for diagnosis. Anyone else with the same or similar issue. Thanks in advance. For the record, it has 140,000 original and has been a beast...just an awesome ride.

FYI - There is a recall (ish) on the broken window regulator problem. I received a letter from Chrysler, letting me know they have extended it to a 7 year, unlimited mileage warranty on the windows. I also furnished them with over $450 of parts costs on previous window replacements, which they wrote me a check for. It would be worth checking with Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep.

Speed-specific vibrations are usually tire and wheel related. If you can drive into, and out of, the vibration zone, it is almost surely that.

I think I may have fixed it. I replaced the transmission control module that mounts on top of the valve body. It was relatively easy to do, but messy as usual. I have not had the code or limp mode since replacement. But just replaced it Friday 1/6/1012, so I will see what happens this week. The part cost about $230 from molar parts online.com. Just FYI. Thanks

Hey Marcky, I'm having almost the exact same issue with my 2005 CRD. I was wondering if you have had any luck finding a solution to your problem. let me know, that would be great!

I have the same exact problem with my 2004 Jeep Liberty 4x4 3.71L, except when I turn the OD off the shaking/vibrations don't happen. But I only turn the OD off when I am driving in the city not highway. Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially the inexpensive kind.

Does THIS sound anything like your problem? The article refers to Torque Converter Shudder.
#165 of 181 transmission not shifting

I have a 2005 jeep liberty 4x4 when I started having problems with it shifting I would pull off the highway turn it off restart and it would shift fine. Now it will not shift out of first gear. Anyone have this problem or have a fix?

My 2005 Jeep CRD transmission was acting up and kept throwing very strange codes (temp sensor failure, among them) and shifting oddly (wrong shift decisions for the load, throttle position, and/or RPM). Ended up replacing the solenoid pack and that resolved everything. It was a bolt-on repair, but required removing the bottom of the transmission (valve body) to reveal the solenoid pack; $240 for the part and about 4-8 hours of wrench-turning (depending on how well equipped your garage is).
Roadrunner, it sounds like you have a TCM and/or Solenoid Pack and/or wiring harness issue. Is the ECM setting any code(s)? It must be. I am not an expert, but locking in first gear sounds like a "limp in condition" or a failed/failing solenoid pack. If the signal from the TCM to the solenoids isn't being honored, that could be causing your condition.
