#128 of 214 Stalling....and lemon law....
Jun 10, 2009 (4:27 pm)
Hi, I'm sorry to hear about your issues, it sounds a lot like the problems I had with my 2003 Jeep Liberty. Mine actually stalled on the highway at over 60 MPH a couple times so its a HUGE safety issue! I wound up having the Cam and Crank sensors replaced. It stopped stalling after the last install but the check engine light still came on, the codes referred to leaks that are normally associated with a bad gas cap. I changed the gas cap and the car has been fine ever since. I would check that one just to see if it helps. I would still love to get rid of my car too, though, because I am worried every time I get behind the wheel that its going to stall. I thought lemon laws only applied to newer cars?

So, my boyfriend and I went 4 wheeling in tall grass in his 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lardeo 4.0, I know, NOT a good idea. The next morning we left to drive about four hours and forgot to check the undercarriage, REALLY not a good idea. We were about 2 hrs in and the transmission started slipping on the highway at about 70 mph. We stopped for gas, it started up fine, and on we went. Transmission was acting up over 70, but seemed fine at 65. He told me to pull off so we could check the fluid, I exited, turned left, and the Jeep died at about 45 mph. Just shut down, no gauges working at all. Cranked but would not turn over, but you can hear the fuel pump come on. We looked under and found grass around the drive shaft that had ripped out the downstream O2 sensor. Of course it was late, no parts stores were open, and we left the repair manual at home... He tried to stick the wires back in the sensor but that didn't work. We got towed home, replaced the sensor, and nothing changed. Checked for fire at spark plug, nothing. We tried to get the check engine light to flash the codes manually, and that didn't work either. No check engine light at all. We went to checking sensors with the volt meter, trying to make the check engine light come on. Nada. Very low (about half of normal) readings on major sensors. We had it towed to a shop, they said it was reading crazy and must be the PCM. We have tried two different ones programmed for the vehicle and they didn't change a thing... Still cranks, no start, no gauges, any ideas? Thanks so much!

I guess, Lemon Law also applies to when the service department has had 4 chances to fix your vehicle but they don't do it correctly. I have a warranty on the vehicle - maybe that's why lemon law applies. I'm not sure. Thanks for the advice. My car is still in the shop I'll keep you posted as to what they decided to fix. Feel bad for the dealership if this is a JEEP issue that should be a recall.

The accident may have yanked really hard on the wiring harness.

Black smoke is usually a sign of one or more cylinder misfires. I'd read the codes and see which cylinders are misbehaving. These symptoms could be lots of things. Bad gas is rare but it does happen.

Looks like .6 of one hour + the part, so can't be very hard to do.

#137 of 214 Jeep Liberty Sport 2003 Stalling!!!
Aug 10, 2009 (8:25 am)
Im driving a Jeep Liberty Sport 2003 manual transmission 4x4, while stopped at a stop sign my Jeep stalled. I started it back up again and the check engine light came on. I was able to drive it to house after buying a can of throttle body cleaner from the hardware store. I exposed the throttle body assembly and ejected the cleaner on to the walls of the throttle body. After doing that for 20 minutes I drove my Jeep around the block a few them. I thought i was done with it, while driving down the road to go to work the next morning, traveling about 60-65mph my tachometer was starting to spike. I quickly pulled over and stopped my vehicle, when I came to a complete stop the car stalled and not only did my check engine light come on but also my check oil light as well. I cleaned my throttle body so I have determined that the problem is not that simple. I'm broke and running out of solutions. If any one has more helpful advice Im all ears. thanks.
