You can replace the cam sensor, crank sensor and every other sensor on the jeep and it will probably still stall. Clean the throttle body, a $7 can of cleaner beats paying $38 for sensors that will (as you mentioned) NOT fix the problem. When the engine stalls unexpectantly (i.e. from not getting enough air/fuel through the throttle body) the sensors involved in the engine turning (i.e. cam/crank) enter an error code. That is what is showing up on your p-whatever code. You can continue to replace sensors until you are blue in the face or you have invested more money than the jeep is worth and chances are it will still not run. Less is more, try the $7 option before you dump another $38 and an equal amount of frustration into it.

After replacing cam shaft sensor, which did not fix the stalling issue, I replaced the crankshaft sensor (just above the passenger side CV joint) for $28 and that one did correct the problem. As long as you can get under the vehicle, safely, it's one cap screw that can be pulled with a ratchet and a 12 mm socket, one electrical connector. Haven't gotten to spraying the throttle body yet, does not appear to be an issue based on how it's running.

#92 of 214 02 liberty intermittenly won't start
Jun 15, 2008 (5:48 pm)
I have a 2002 liberty that won't start. It started just once about a month ago, after messing around with the gear shift, I got it going. Last week after filling it up with gas, it wouldn't start at all. We tried over and over. It ended up getting towed. It still wouldn't start at the shop. However, they now cannot determine what is wrong with it because sometimes it will start and sometimes it won't. It is still there, and I am looking for any clues as to what may be wrong with it! PLEASE HELP! Thanks

My 2004 Jeep Liberty with only 10,000 miles just suddenly refused to start after being fine a few minutes
before. I had it towed to the dealer and after three weeks of what I think was trial and error I finally have it back and it seems to be fine. They replaced the fuel pump, computer, fuel injector and then a second fuel pump saying the first one was defective. I had puchased
the extended warranty when I bought the car so I incurred no expense except the $100 deductible. My advice would be to anyone purchasing a car these days is to bite the bullet and buy the extended warranty. Mine included rental for five days and the dealer paid for the remainder time. I shutter to think what this three week repair job would have cost me. By the way, this is the first problem I have had with the Liberty and I really do enjoy driving it.

My son, our neighbor [who was the chief or head machanic for a John Deer dealer] and I have been working with biodeasel and use motor oil for over a year and a half having much success in saving on fuel expenses. I bought a Jeep Liberty Limited 2005 model with CRD last September and have used our processed oil [cleansed with a center fuse] with limited sucess in the Jeep diesel. When the fuel water filter gets 5,000 miles it must be changede or the diesel stalls and will not start. Now after sucessfuly running 10 galons of our cleaned oil on the next 10 gallions the moter is stalling. To start the diesel you must turn the switch off then back on and the motor will start. This means you can see the RPM drop on stalling ,

One obvious diagnostic would be to run straight diesel fuel in the truck and see how it behaves, or perhaps pump biodiesel might be another good experiment.

Yes! the jeep Liberty '05 runs very well on store bought diesel fuel. This must be because it was designed to do so. The problem is that it stalls on centefuse cleaned oil that it and other diesels are running on. Could the common rail not create enough suction to pull fuel through the fuel filter? Could installing an auxellery fuel pump solve this problem? Is there a fuel filter that would let more fuel get to the motor? I am open to any suggestion. Yes another expert said I could trade to get another diesel.
