I am not trying to bash dealers. I want to begin a learning process. I purchased the $90 manual (cd version). I have read the removal procedure. I called the dealer to ask about a code reader and they said I would have to go to Snap_on to buy one. Snap on site is showing a complex diag system. I was hoping for a hand held that would give decent info. My plan is to locate someone who has the EGR prob/ has read it at Autozone and knows what code the simple reader throws. If that matches, I will look into pulling my EGR and solenoid. The forums are filled with CRD owners having repeat probs from the EGR. I do not know if this is my trouble yet.
#1. I need to know the free code (Autozone)
#2 if a match I will find a EGR valve being thrown out or pull mine and determine why they go out.
#3 I need a spare PCV or solenoid same story on clean and rebuild.
#4I need to be able to reset my dash light.

I'm not sure what you mean by matching the code. Do you have a code? You can get codes to display on your odometer by going key on-off-on-off-on. Then any P codes will be displayed in you odometer. If you can get the code or codes you have post them and I will let you know what they are. If you are looking for a cheap code reader I bought a 99.00 one from Mac tools that not only gives you codes and definitions but some basic engine data such as coolant temp, tps volts, O2 sensor volts, etc... I think Sears may also sell something similar.
#77 of 117 P1263 Fuel Air Metering

I have a 2006 CRD with the check engine light staying on. I bought a code reader and got code P1263, Fuel Air Metering. I subscribed to AllData for my vehicle, but could not find this code. Any idea what this is and what to do about it?

Hi, I am a Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep technician. I looked up that code in Chryslers system and it does not exist. Your code reader may have a problem reading DTC's from the diesel engine controller.

Thanks. Can you recommend a code reader? I got an Actron CP9175.

I usually am using a factory scan tool but I do own a MAC tools code reader that also gives some basic engine data such as coolant temp, tps, O2 volts, etc. That was about 100.00. Have you tried to go on-off-on-off-on with your ignition key and see if the codes show on your odometer. I can't say with 100% certainty that it will work on a CRD Liberty but it might. Again, let me know the code and i'll give you real Chryslere info on it.

I went to Autozone and the code is P1265. The text was " mfg control fuel air metering". I went to the dealer in my area. They seem to be having trouble finding the code. If anyone can make sense of this let me know.

Hi, once again there is no such DTC as a P1265 for your vehicle. Any Chrysler deealer will have the scan tool needed to get the actual DTC out of your vehicle. If you just asked the dealer I can see why they are having trouble, I thimk you're gonne need to at least pay for diag (usually 1/2 hour) and get their code and diagnostic results then let me know and I'll give you some info and maybe you can fix it yourself. You never know.

I have an 03 Jeep Liberty and I need some help in evaluating what the problem is. About 6 months ago I had to replace the coil in #4 and all of the spark plugs. On 4/7 my water pump busted. I had a shop around my area fix it and I picked the car up on 4/8.
On my way home w/ the car, I felt some slight hesitation after going about half a mile away from the shop and never exceeding 40 mph. On my way to work the next morning, 4/9, the car was still hesitating a tiny little bit. On my lunch break that day, I started to back out of my parking spot when the car started jerking so bad I thought it was going to give me whip lash and then the check engine light started blinking at me. The car wouldn't let me get over 15 mph on my way to the shop before it would start jerking and hopping. The mechanics were trying to tell me that I had gotten bad gas and put a gas treatment in it. I didn't like that explanation because I hadn't put any gas in the vehicle for a week, so I wouldn't leave until they test drove it to make sure the hopping and hesitation had stopped.
As my luck would have it, the car ran fine for the mechanic. I jumped in the car to go back to work when I didn't even get to the end of the shop before it started jerking and hopping and then the check engine light came back on and was blinking at me. The mechanic at the shop hooked it up to the computer and got the code for a misfire in # 5 and #6. He put a new coil in the # 5 and drove it up and down the road a couple of times(he only had one coil in stock and that one seemed to have fixed it).
I picked the car up that afternoon and only got 5 miles away before the darn thing did the exact same thing. I turned around and went straight back to the shop. The reading on the computer said a misfire in #5 and #6!?!?!?! The mechanic ordered another coil to put in the #6. The #6 was replaced on 4/12.
When I went to pick the car up, it was running so rough and hesitating like crazy. The poor thing sounded like it was going to blow up. There was also a slight smell of raw fuel lingering around. I asked the mechanic to take out all of the spark plugs to make sure they were still okay. He ckecked them and they were fine, so he put them back in. I cranked the car and the rough idling/running was gone!?!?!?! The Jeep was purring like a kitten. It makes no sense!!!
I drove it home and it had a little bit of skipping going on but nothing that I would be concerned about. The next day on my lunch break, I was trying to pull into my parking spot when it hesitated really bad and then the the light came back on (this time not flashing, just in case that matters). I called the mechanic so he could come up and pull the code...misfire #6... I drove the car 35 minutes down the road so Chrysler could take a look at it. The car never stalled, hesitated, jerked, etc... the whole way (I live in the mountains), but the check engine light stayed on. I am waiting on the service guys at the dealership to let me know something...
Anyone got any ideas?

hello, i just thought i would put my input in on your issues... you should know you are not alone in this. i have an 02 limited liberty and has done that very thing. hours spent with a computer and different codes or messages reading malfunction. i'm hear to tell you after doing all of the same thing you have done... plug after plug and coil after coil... and still the same crap. grey smoke and flashing engine lights--sputtering and loss of power. after 3 days of trying everything we could think of-- bad gas/ injectors-- ect.. we made then thought we needed to rebuild the engine.. we bought all of the gaskets, rings, oil pump... EXPENSIVE PARTS I MIGHT ADD.
my husband pulled the engine--- to only find a cylinder head with a huge hole- and one of the arms broke along with the pin. (the sputtering in the motor) (sorry if its not tech terms) oil in places it shouldn't have been. find out very quickly the cylinder heads for the liberty are also costly. i love my jeep-- i have not paid mine off yet- bought it used and has been the strongest thing i have ever had. bought it with 86k and now has 145k and in parts across the shop. makes me sick but have your jeep checked- before it gets to the point mine did.
