Turn your key on then off then on then off then on and watch the digital odometer for the codes. And about the fuel filter. Your jeep dosen't have one. Chrysler hasn't used fuel filters since the mid 90's. The only thing filtering fuel is a strainer on the end of the fuel pump in the tank. They almost never clog. In 15 years I can only recall 1 that had clogged and once that happens it burns out the fuel pump anyway.

Well we tried changing out the battery but no success. The code 6lass popped up but not sure what that means......it could of been a G...not sure as it flashed really fast. I do have a crack in my windshield but not sure what that would have to do with my car not running properly. So what do you think my next course of action is? the fuel filter? thanks.

Again, you don't have a fuel filter and the code in the odometer will start with a 'P' and then have 3 numbers following it. If you can't figure it out bring it to one of those auto parts stores that will scan DTC's for you. Let me know and maybe we can get you on the right track.

I am having the same problem with my wife's Jeep Liberty that is also a 2002. It will randomly die on her. None of the electrical systems shut down it is just the motor. the Heater and the radio and the lights all stay on. I have had the battery checked and the alternator checked and both were fine.

Well, we are in the process now of changing the fuel filter because it was really in bad condition so I am hoping that that is the issue...will keep you posted. My battery also checked out fine as well as the alternator so we will see. I have never had one problem with my jeep...love it to death so I am hoping that it is just a case of not maintaining my filters properly.

I'm sorry about saying your liberty didn't have a fuel filter. It does and it is located on top of the fuel tank. I really didn't even know it had one. I have been a Chrysler dealer mechanic for 15 years and I have never changed one. The recomended change interval is to change the filter if and when you need to replace the fuel pump. Almost no other Chrysler vehicles even have fuel filters anymore. When you said you were having it changed I looked it up in the service manual and to my surprise there it was. That being said it is probabally not going to fix your problem. Like I said I have never changed one and I have worked on Hundereds if not Thousands of Libertys over the years. I even own an '03 myself. (has 155K on it).

Hey, well here is the recent update. Apparently, I blew a cylinder...whatever that is... . They are running a diagnostic to see what else could possibly be wrong. My jeep only has 90000 miles on it and for the last 3 years i have driven barely 3000 miles a year on her. Luckily, i have someone who is handy and will fix it...but do you know how much parts for this will be? and anything else we should look for while we are at it. thanks!

That depends on what you mean by blown a cylinder. Did you crack a cylinder head? That's the most common issue that I guess could be considered a Blown Cylinder. Get more info!

I have the same issue on my 2005 liberty CRD.. This is not a fuel issue.. The stalling issue happens more frequently when it is warm outside. It typically only happens when bring the vehicle to the 1st stop following the starting of the vehicle. I feels like the transmission locks the torque converter up and stalls under the load. Once the vehicle is restarted the vehicle will run fine.. There is no code for this and the dealer will not do anything to fix the issue. I have been trying for years.. Transmission flush nor torque converter replacement will resolve the issue.. Best thing to do is sell the car.
