#21 of 91 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited dead...

Back in 2005, I bought my wife a used 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited. She's loved it and currently has 89k on it. Periodically since we've had it, the check engine light comes on. 1st time took it back to the dealer and they chalked it up to the gas cap not being on correctly. So, we've been able to clear that with taking the cap off and putting it back on. Over the past weekend, I used it to take the trash to the dump; check engine light was on. When I got back, one of the bags had leaked and it smelled so I left all the windows open to air it out; including the back window. I also took off the gas cap and remounted it. My daughter went to go use it and the battery was low; the front interior lights stay on when the back window is up. I fiddled with it for a while and eventually got it started... however, it would not idle. After cleaning the airfilter and checking everything, I tried again and it started and would idle... check engine light was out. My daughter borrowed it to go out that night and filled it up; it previously had a little over a quarter of a tank. It ran fine all night. Since her Kia is dead, my daughter borrowed it again and was going to use it until the Kia is fixed... she was on an interstate on the way home when she lost power and it stopped. We had it towed to a local shop (owned by family). This morning they tell me the engine is shot and it will be $5300. to fix it! I've maintained it religiously with regular oil & filter changes. I expected the air filter to be changed last time but Midas didn't do it. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Sorry I don't have more info on the problem because the wife has been in contact with the garage this morning. Just checking things out. A new Jasper engine is about $4k...

I have an 04 Jeep Liberty with a 6 cyl. It stopped on the way home the day before yesterday, stalling at stop lights . I would have to put it into neutral and keep the engine revved to get it home. This occurred after it was running for about 20 minute. It also would not let the engine get over 2000 RPM, if you stepped on the gas it felt like it was choking out and would start bucking and acting up. We got it home , and noticed a clicking sound coming from under the hood. I traced it to the fuse box, the ASD rely was clicking in and out. (Automatic Shutdown) It is actually the same rely that runs the blower motor, so I switched them and it did fine , and I was able to get home. The next day it ran for twenty minutes and acted the same way again. Does anyone have any ideas? Unfortunately this is my only vehicle
#24 of 91 Instrument Panel/Cluster Issue
Jul 18, 2007 (9:41 am)
Hi, I am new to this forum, and I apologize in advance if this question has been asked before. I tried searching for it, but didn't have any luck.
I bought a 2005 Jeep Liberty Sport for my wife about 2 weeks ago. Everything has been great thus far (other than the stained seat problem). As I was going to drive it last night, I noticed that the instrument panel would not light up when I turned on the parking light and/or head light. I thought it may have been a blown fuse, but I could not figure out which fuse it was from the owner's manual. The closest ones I could find where #13 and #34, and both checked out okay. I also tried adjusting the interior light lever but it was to no avail. All other interior lights work just fine.
The only change I have made is the aftermarket CD player I installed last week. I don't know if these two correlate because I have not had to use my head lights since I installed the CD player. Since this all occurred late last night, I have not had time to troubleshoot any further. I will attempt to backtrack my steps by removing the CD player and placing the factory unit back in, and then manually pull all the fuses to check them when I get home from work.
If someone has experienced this before and could spare me all this trouble, I would greatly appreciate it. I called the dealership for some possible pointers, but they just want me to bring it in. BLAH.

By pressing in the odometer reset button and by moving the key to run , you can see what problems the computer has
seen also watch your gauges jump around . this fix
my tach and speedometer which both read 0 while driving.

Well, the dealer called me and said I need a new engine because "something is broken in the engine and is loose". A new engine installed and out the door is $7000! Has this engine had problems? I was assured by the dealer when we bought the thing that the engine was pristine and had been cared for. My wife was religious with the oil changes... WTF? Is there anywhere in Northern Virginia that fix it for less than the dealer, or other shop's price? I'm still making payments on this thing!
