#81 of 181 My jeep
Oct 01, 2008 (2:33 pm)
Hey everyone. I have a 2003 jeep liberty sport with 100 k on it and my transmission goes into geer ans shifts just fine, but when it down shifts it seems as if its shift down too fast. When it finally is getting ready to shift back down into first is bangs really hard back in. It actually jerks my whole jeep. I took it to a place and they said it was a computer problem in the transmission and I was just wanting to know someone elses oppion. Does anyone think I should get another oppinion?Thanks!

WHEN I'M SETTING AT A LIGHT MY TRANSMISSION JERKS REALLY HARD WITH POOR ACCELERATION, BUT WHEN IT KICKS IN IT'S MOVING LIKE IT SHOULD, I'VE HAD THE SERVICE TECH CHECK IT OUT, I'M TOLD IT NEEDS A TRANS ASSEMBLY AND SOME KIND OF PACK. BUT OTHER I LUV MY JEEP.

Oct 28, 2008 (5:52 pm)
Good day all My 2006 CRD had tranny problems at about 37,00 km i noticed the tranny slipping and on the highway around 120 km/hr it would jump. So I brought it into Jeep and they said it was something to do with tranny lines. So after they said it was fixed it but they didnt after driving some more I found in the morning or just starting off I would have to rev up the engine to get the jeep moving but they looked at it again and put another torque converter in it. I talk to a guy online he said he had the same problem and they put a jeep commander toruge converter in it from what they said would take the power of the diesel engine. So knowing that now why havent they recalled the jeep liberity CRD and put a more powerfull torgue converter in it. But on a side note i got 930km one trip when i changed the oil and put a K&N air filter in it now i get about 830 km go figure eh.

I also get better mileage and torque (pull) with a dirty air filter and when it rains.
I get less mileage when I put a new air filter or when I have the K&N on
Could our turbo be making the air/fuel mixture too lean?
In my case, cleaning the Boost Pressure Sensor never made a change. Could be due to the mechanically driven waste gate compared to the variable vanes you have
Now that winterized diesel fuel is available, for the same amount of fuel (3/4 tank mark) I get 320 instead of 450 Km or miles, the ratio is the same

If you have a CAI with the K&N, that can lean out mixture, yes.
With just a drop-in K&N, you are doing absolutely nothing to the engine except at WOT, because you have a throttle plate regulating air flow anyway.
Rainy weather creates a denser fuel charge, so that effect makes perfect sense.
#86 of 181 Code P0838 4wd mode sensor low
Dec 20, 2008 (8:29 pm)
So I have this error code, P0838 in the haynes book it say it means 4wd mode sensor low. I can not get my liberty to shift when then speed reaches 35. So basically i can not go faster than 35. I have had previous problems with my 4wd not disengaging in the past. I have no clue what to do besides dynamite. So if anyone out there can give me some suggestions, i would be grateful. Thanks...
#87 of 181 Trans mission shift falure
Dec 21, 2008 (7:07 pm)
Hello Yes, I should have been here when I bought my CRD but its better late then never. I have had this 2006 liberty CRD and it looks like the front pump when
after 26,000 miles. Its out of warranty by 1 month and has been great. If indeed I
can not get jeep to fix this under warranty who makes a good 5 or six speed after market transmission for replacement? I really enjoy the gas mileage and performance I get from the CRD and have realized they is not a reasonable replacement on the market for less the $40,000. So what can I do to fix it so
I don't continue to have problem.

#90 of 181 2003 Jeep Liberty SERIOUS manual transmission problem
May 25, 2009 (3:29 pm)
">Okay where to begin....
I have a 2003 5 speed manual transmission Jeep Liberty. My truck has been running good up until now. Wednesday driving was fine but thrusday not the same issue. Thursday I went on an errand and notice I have having problems shifting. I felt like I was working against the gears. I fought to get into gear. Sometimes the gears would grind or even pop out of gear or it would shift really hard. That day I took it to a friend that works at a dealership didn't know if he could help me. He wasn't sure what was wrong with it because it wasn't his expertise. I have an on going issue with the transmission mount. When I had my oil change the mechanic there explained that the one of the housings that the bolt mounts to is cracked and needed to be replaced. He told me is wasn't a must-fix-this-minute thing but SHOULD be fixed ASAP. They were suppose to call me about parts and $ but never did. Then I kind of forgot about it. Well my friend that took a look at my truck said that the crack mount could be a factor but doesn't know for sure. He did say the cracked part is a serious problem and needs to be fixed. Upon looking at the crack, I noticed it's the actual transmission mount/assembly and the whole thing would need to be replaced. Oh Boy! But would replacing that fix my problem. Then friday I went on an errand again and it was worse. I had to jam it into gear. I mean all my strength to get into gear. I decided it wasn't safe to drive and turned around to go home. At my last stop sign I put it in neutral and then I couldn't get back into gear. I tried 1st and 2nd and no luck. I ended up having to push my car down the street into my driveway. I really don't know how to diagnosis this problems. I have been told just in talking that it could be A. the cracked bolt mount B. sync rose C. transmission D. clutch E. throw out bearing. Can someone shed some light on this issue because I need my car!!! I am a college student that works full time and this is my only line. Needless to say I need to do something ASAP. Please help.
