#182 of 213 Stall now will not start
Jul 02, 2010 (3:49 pm)
This morning my 2006 Jeep Liberty started to act like it was going to die at a stop light. I was only a few blocks from leaving my house. I kept my foot on the gas slightly to keep it running. I turned down the next road and as soon as I put my foot on the brake to pull to the side of the road it died. I tried to start it and it almost started but was real rough. If I pushed on the gas right as it started it would run but very rough, as though it was running short of all 6. Does anyone know where I could start before I take it in to a stealership or moneychanic? It sound similar to some of the problems tha have linked to throttle body cleaning and cam sensor replacement but I did not notice gas smell and the tach did not go crazy.

After trying the easy things I had to take it in. The mechanic found that #1 had very low compression. He went on vacation so I had to take it to another mechanic. He did say that after putting some sort of cleaner in the cyl, in hopes that the valve was just stuck, that the cyl did not seem to me leaking. Possible good news that it is just something wrong with the valve...? I should know more today after the other mechanic can look into it. I will try to post back with the resulting info.

I ended up replacing both the camshaft position and crankshaft position sensors. Reset my computer and ever since, my problem has been fixed. Cost for the parts was minimal (less than $60USD for both) but it was very labor intensive to replace as I had to remove my catalytic convertor to get to the crankshaft position sensor. This is the only issue I've had with my Liberty and it is now at 97K. I hope this helps someone down the road (pun intended).

Sep 22, 2010 (8:38 am)
Last week while going home my jeep started stalling on hwy it lost the power, I let it roll and stop.Everything else was running fine I shift gear from Drive to Park and turn off the engine.I tried to start the engine and it didn't start.I tried twice and white smoke came out of exhaust.I got it towed to my mechanic.after 3 days he showed me 3 ignition coils were literally blasted, He recommened to change all 6 ignition coils, sprak plugs and crank sensor, I agreed to it and two day later he said this doesn't seem to fix the problem.He took it for drive and same problem again after 10 minutes.this time 2 of new ignition coils blasted again, he mentioned he never saw something like this with ignition coils.He said two of the coils are misfiring and this happen only with those two.Now he say it seems to be PCM, he doesn't do PCM, he ask me to contact dealer,Which I will be doing tomorrow.Please advise what should I do.I have read lots of post here and Very few people had luck with getting thier problems fixed without spending too much money.Any help is appreciated.

Hello everyone. I have come here and other forums to ask for help with a 02 jeep liberty.
I am getting to my wits end with this.
The problem is it will start and run fine as long as I hold the gas pedal for about 10 to 30 seconds.
If I do not hold the gas pedal the jeep will start and the idle will drop below 500 RPM and it will die, this takes about 10 to 30 seconds after the engine fires.
It's sounding to me like a vacuum leak or the IAC. So I noticed the rubber hose connections to the plastic lines that come from the throttle body were cracked, so I replaced them, and I could not find the IAC spec's online to ohm it out, so I just went to autozone and payed the $70 for a new one.
After changing out the old cracked rubber hose connectors,checking for other vacuum leaks and replacing the IAC, it is still doing the same thing.
Starting and dieing/stalling.
The jeep runs fine after me holding the gas pedal for the 10-30 seconds, well it is using alittle more MPG than normal, I could go for 1.5 weeks on a tank of gas, now I am getting almost a week.
I am hoping the extra eyes and ears on this will get it cracked
#191 of 213 08 Wants to Stall
Mar 14, 2011 (11:57 am)
Hi all, I have an 08 Liberty Sport 4x4. I bought it certified preowned back in October with 25k miles here in New England. Now that the weather is becoming damper, I'm noticing the engine wants to sometimes stall at idle. It will idle slightly about 500 and then all of a sudden the rpm will dip to around 300 and the car will shake slightly. Then suddenly the engine will recover itself and send rpm around 750. If sitting at idle for a couple of minutes, the idle will slowly go down to 500 again and the same process will happen. Tomorrow will be the 3rd time it has been to Jeep. It was a clean carfax with oil changes every 5000 and i just did the $600 30k mile checkup. Seems like it was well taken care of prior to my ownership, so not sure what is going on. The first time, Jeep updated the software which now makes my transmission shift in entirely different places.... Second time they replaced the electronic throttle body because I said the dash lights flickered a little when the engine wanted to stall. That was done 2 weeks ago and all of a sudden we get 2 days of rain/snow and it happens again. Now today is 45 and sunny and dry and the car idles as smooth as could be. Any ideas? Should I be concerned? HELP! Thanks.
