#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.

That happend to me..I have the same jeep as you except mine is automatic. We had to change two sensors on the car, that have to do with the mph on your car. At this moment I do not remember what they are called but tomorrow I will look them up and I will reply to you again with which ones I had to change

the sensors I was talking about was the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor. And since then my jeep has been fine. Me and my husband changed them ourselfs, they really are not that hard to do.

Finally got it to the shop - bad crankshaft & camshaft sensors ....hoping that is it...thought perhaps bad gas because we had just filled up w/the Liberty and a few days later I was using my dad's car, filled up at same station and it blew up too...I guess just weird coincidence...thanks for all the help!

Sounds like my scenario exactly...I was about to post:
"I have 2002 Jeep Liberty (Sport).
I drove my vehicle home with no problem. I stopped home for about 20 minutes and then went to drive my Jeep again. It wouldn't start.
- The engine is not turning over.
- The keyless entry (remote) device doesn't seem to be working, ie will not lock doors, but did open the hatch on one occasion.
- First, when I turned the key back, nothing happened at 1st and then gradually the odometer display came on and then the radio.
- As well, at first I could here a continuous "activation" of the lock in the hatch for no reason. It gradually stopped.
- I turn the key forward and the various lights display. First, as normal, but now the (MIL - malfunction indicator light) blinks for 10 seconds. The battery light is also coming on after initially going off.
- Again, when I turn the key the whole way to start, no response from the engine.
What is happening??
- Computer (ODB) problem?
- Need to boost battery?
Thanks in advance!"
Anyone else with similar experience?

I'm at my wits end. Hopefully i can get some advice here.
Ok I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty v6 3.7l renegade 72000 miles on it. About 1 week ago, It stalled out on me on the freeway doing about 65. i pulled it over and waited about 5 mins and started it again...it started then stalled again about 30yards later. I had it towed. I had a friend of mine come and put his code reader on it and we came to the conclusion that it had something to do with spark. So I began to take off the plugs and coils. I found that 4 of my coils were cracked and one was so bad it was bulging...ok bad plugs and coils..got it. I went and bought all 6 coils and plugs and replaced them. Started it up and it ran for about 10 mins then stalled out again. Now the code read that there was a sensor bad. We couldnt figure out which it was so I had it towed to a mechanic shop. He diagnosed it as the cam and crank sensors and he replaced them for me. He said it still had a small lag on take off but that could be fixed by putting in the correct plugs. Apparently me and my BRILLIANT thought process bought bosch 4-spark plugs (6bux a pop) and the mechanic suggested regular Champion plugs. so I went and took out a bosch plug and measured it up to a regular champion one. turns out that the champion plug is a little shorter than the ones I put in. so I figured that might be the problem. I raced back to my car and began replacing the plugs. Upon removing the coils, i found that another coil (yes its a new coil) was popped out bulging at the side like the other one was. I attributed this to maybe "bad luck bad part" deal. I went to the parts store and they gave me another new one. I put it in and turned ont he car. It started perfect and ran great!...for the first 10 mins...after that, there was a very small "stutter" in the engine that was intermittent. I didnt think much of it figuring that maybe the engine is just a litle old and may have developed it over time. That was yesterday afternoon. I drove the car across town with my kids and everything in it (thinking my jeep was fixed) and it ran great. Today, i woke up and went to church and ran some errands. the jeep was running fine and still had that minor "stutter" int he idle at the stoplights. but it would take off fine. I didnt think anything of it. I got into a scenario where I had to give it gas so that it would doenshift so I can pass someone. It shifted fine but during the pass, the engine stuttered again. after I [assed, i had t get off the freeway because now the engine was exhibiting signs that it wanted to stall out and die. The check engine light was flashing slowly as I pulled it into the driveway of my parents house (they were closest to where I was at) i had to let it cool down so I left it there and got a ride to my house. My thought is that when it lost power again this time, it felt like it was missing fire on a cylinder which made me think about "what if another coil went bad?" but what are the odds on that? If it is the case, i still need to find out why my coils are going bad? I'm going to have to go and check the coils and plugs (to see what one wasnt firing right). Any suggestions? I bought a main filter for the fuel (for the filter thats on the outside right in front of the gas tank) so i'll be replacing that one.
need some advice. please let me know.
thanks guys (and gals)

Cam Shaft and/or Crank Shaft sensores need to be replaced, also as a precation take a can of "trottle body" clearner and douse your throttle body with it. I changed both of my sensors on my liberty and thar car runs like new. Sensores are about $30 bucks each, the "trottle" clearer is only about $10 bucks. Also when you replacing the sensores check the old ones you take out to see if there soaked in oil, That could be the reason your sensores died to begin with. Best of luck.
