I have a 2007 Jeep Liberty. Problem #1. When I turn on the heat I get this burnt oil smell. It only does it when its warm but it's still annoying. Problem #2 This winter was hard I know but I'm extremely anal retentive about keeping it clean, why is the paint rusting allready. The dealorship said theres nothing they can do for me and I'm pissed. It only has 3000 miles on it and I just bought it last summer. Any advice

You will find this problem in most 4X4 vehicles with a short wheel base. When the front wheels are locked together the inside (of the turn) wheel has to turn faster than the outside. Thus causing a slipping of the outside wheel sideways, and pushing outward with the inside wheel. In a nut shell they are fighting each other because of different turning radius'.

If the dealer is telling you there is nothing they can do then ask them: When the next date is for the manufactures district representative to appear at the the dealership and you want an appointment to talk with him/her.

Try to 'tap' the starter motor with a piece of wood where the large cable is connected (there is no risk with wood). You may have a dirty contact in the solenoid/relay or one of the brushes from the motor can stick along it's slide/holder. If your lights don't dim when you try to start this means power doesn't reach the motor, and you're battery is fine.
#14 of 15 which gear is Full Time 4wd?!?!?
Dec 18, 2009 (2:17 pm)
My liberty is an automatic and only has four options- 2Hi, 4Hi, N, and 4lo. When I am in 4H it says I am in Part Time 4wd. A friend that has an 06 said that I should be driving in full time. There isnít a light that comes on in any of those choices that says full time. Which gear should I be driving in? I live in Alaska and it is very snowy lately.
#15 of 15 Drive Line Jump when taking slow sharp turns or parking in 4WD Part or Full
Jan 23, 2010 (7:49 am)
This is normal. The vehicle will jump cause the tires are grabbing when your are locked in.
This skipping or hop on dry pavement is just breaking traction and indicates there is a excess differential load on the drive line in tight turns. The differentials are not perfectly adjusting to the arc of the turn. Normal ! Normal ! Normal !.
Ah... not a good idea to be in 4WD on a good traction surface and be making lots of short turn though, Duh!
