#196 of 214 2002 Jeep Liberty Sounds Funny
May 09, 2011 (8:23 am)
I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty 2WD which I was driving yesterday and it was working fine. I parked it and when I went to start it, it just wouldn't. The lights and the radio work just fine (so it's not the battery). I thought that maybe I ran out of gas, so my BF put some in it, but every time we would turn the key, it makes a noise as if there are rocks in the engine and it never turns over. It sounds awful! I don't know what it could be. I just got my oil changed and the transmission fluid changed too. Any ideas on what it could be? Could it be my catalytic converter? Help! Thanks!

After several years of this issue and hundreds of dollars in parts and labor......the problem has been solved thanks to a post on this site.
When diagnostic codes showed the overdrive sensor not working I had it replaced but still didn't fix it. I came to this site and read the problem of the routing of the speed sensor wires located on the rear difrential. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off the speed sensor quit working and that includes the tranny shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. So I called my brother and asked him to check these wires and sure enough, they had worn through. We went to a dealer and got the replacement kit for $32.00 and my brother replaced it. He also took the time to encase the wires in a plastic tubing to avoid this problem again. I was looking to get rid of my jeep out of frusteration but I am glad to say this gilr is now keeping her Jeep!

#199 of 214 starting and stalling issues
Aug 21, 2011 (1:18 pm)
Hi, I hope someone can help with my issues. I purchased an 02 Jeep Liberty Limited for my daughter. This is her first car and I really wanted to make sure the vehicle I purchased was a dependable one so she would never be broke down somewhere in distress. Well since I purchased this Jeep I have been back and forth to the dealer with starting and stalling issues. First of all when I was driving it home the idle dropped down and the vehicle stalled. I waited a minute and restarted it, then drove it straight back to the dealer. He looked at it and said it must be the battery, so he replaced it and it ran fine. When the vehicle is running it runs great. After replacing the battery I drove to pick up the check to purchase the vehicle. After picking up the check I drove back to the car lot and thought everything was ok. When I got back in it, it wouldn't start. Well the guy crawled under it while I held the key in start position and it started. He said it was the starter so he put a new one on. Now I have been driving it for three days with no problems. My daughter just called me about two hours ago and said it wouldn't start. She sat there for about five minutes and eventually it started up again. I am baffled!! Like I said when its running it runs great but this problem really worries me for the safety of my daughter. If you have any advice please let me know and if you have any questions for me to help figure this out please ask me. Hope something works out.

How many miles is in ur daughter's jeep?
I assume that NO check engine light is on, battery is new, starter is new.
It could be some ignition contacts that is part of the steering column. Visually, these contacts are probably made from some kind of zinc-lead alloy, that I "describe" as soft metal.
I had similar signs of this type of failure and had the steering column replaced. You can start it usually in the AM, when the weather is cold.
If my opinion is true, try putting the gear in N(eutral), step on the break and turn the ignition. Getting a new steering column yourself and pay only for labor, before the time comes when u can't hardly start the jeep, could be a factor to consider.

#201 of 214 Will never buy another Jeep or Chrysler product again
Jan 07, 2012 (6:13 am)
I bought a 2006 Jeep liberty 2 years ago and at that time it had less then 20,000 miles one it. First thing to go on vehicle were the window regulators...three of them had to be replaced. Now the car with 53,000 miles on it looks like there might be transmission problems. I have had it at the dealership on and off for the last 2 months trying to locate the problem. The dealership tells me that no error codes show up. The car recently started to stall out on me and the dealership, again tells me they can't find the problem. This is an intermittant issue, when the is car stopped at light while in drive, will slip back into neutral. Dealership tells me when this problem happens just throw the car back into neutral then back into drive.....How is it that Chrysler can't figure out what is wrong with their own car???? I have been endlessly on the phone with Detroit and nothing.....I hate this car....The dealership tells me that they have never seen a problem like this!

I am right there with ya! This November I bought a '06 liberty w/ an automatic transmission and am starting to have the same problems-especially on inclines! This is my first purchase-trying to build my credit and now I am stuck trying to figure out what is wrong. The Jeep doesn't even have 104,000 mile yet!
#203 of 214 Jeep Liberty 02 Stalling
Apr 16, 2012 (7:21 pm)
Hi, I hope someone has the answer, I have a Jeep Liberty 02 4x4 64,000 miles. Has been great until now.
Last Friday I drove doing errands, it was fine, came out from walmart, it started, RPM thing was bouncing like crazy, transmission light on and it immediately stalled. did this several times. I finally got it were I could put into reverse went 4 feet and stalled, did this several times. Furthest I got it was maybe 50 ft. Left the car there overnight, next day started and drove home fine.
I took it to my mechanic, there was the camshaft sensor error, but since the car ran fine I took it home. Have driven only very short trips and is OK. Today I went across town, 12 miles, and on the way back about 1 mile from my house going 45mph the RPM dial started bouncing like crazy, the engine stalled , transmission light on. Same as the other day it would start, then stall immediately. I waited, about 1 1/2 hour and then it started and drove fine. Was that because the engine was cool? Any Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated, I am a single mom, with no husband, boyfriend or any mechanical knowledge myself, and did I mention I am also financially cash poor? so if I could tell the mechanic what it might be... that would be great. I have read the forums and many have replaced a lot parts and it still was not fixed, am hoping to avoid that. Thanks Susan

So... 06 Liberty started stalling out randomly, no CEL, just like someone turned off the key.
Changed oil and filter, Air filter, Spark Plugs, PCV Valve, Cleaned idle air control valve, cleaned throttle body.
Jeep ran fine for about 10 days.
Saturday, put in reverse, moved 4 feet, stalled out.
Replaced Cam shaft sensor, crank shaft sensor, throttle position sensor. Tested coils. All checked good.
Thinking it's the fuel pump, fuel filter, or fuel pressure requlator. All one unit. Looking into changing that unit. Thoughts?
