By pressing in the odometer reset button and by moving the key to run , you can see what problems the computer has

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!

"something is broken in the engine and is loose"
That's too vague. Press your dealer on exactly what is broken and what is loose.

For the sake of curiosity I checked the cost of a rebuilt VM engine, DOHC 2.5 Liter CRD:
"Cherokee, 2.5 CRD DOHC 16V VM99B, 4790 Euros"
This comes to ~6700 USD not accounting for labor. And this is not a new engine, this is a rebuilt engine!
I guess you're lucky to get a new one put in for 'just' $7000.

Yeah... but they want to charge more than the diagnostic fee to tell me more... I would think the dealer would be able to give me more information. Ponderous...
#33 of 91 Jeep Engine Light going on
Feb 16, 2008 (11:59 am)
I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty. From past and current history with mine, did you guys know that the engine light will go on when your gas cap is not on properly. When that happens,...you still have to take to dealer for them to reprogram the computer chip associated with it. And.....wanna here something bizarre that I just got nailed for the other day???? My Warranty did NOT cover the expense of having it at the Dealer or the car rental....because.............wait for this....the gas cap was NOT a Chrysler product! This vehicle does not come with a locking gas cap, so I put my own on after I bought it. (price of gas going up, didnt' want theft). So, I had bought a cap somewhere that they were cheaper. Go figure..........and Yes, I am writing a letter to Jeep.

None OEM gas caps are a problem. Sometimes just replacing the cap will clear the check engine light after a few driving cycles. Not sure if that's true with the Liberty.
#35 of 91 CYL 5 compression problems or rough idle?
Feb 18, 2008 (5:28 pm)
My 2004 Liberty has had the ck engine light come on intermittently. I had it diagnosed by a local repair shop and at the dealer and was told it is the 5th cyl misfiring, because the rotator isn't working as it should. (the local shop told me that) The repair is pretty costly to have both heads removed for replacing them all just to be sure.
Anyone out there have the same problem? I have complained about a rough idle since the get go also.
#36 of 91 2007 Jeep Liberty - ESP and ABS lights come on
Feb 22, 2008 (9:56 am)
Hi - I bought a 2007 Jeep Liberty - has 5000Km on it now. The ESP and ABS lights both come on everytime I drive it -- goes 5-10 Km and on they come and remain on until I stop and shut off engine - now the cycle starts again - 10 Km - or so and on they come again. Chrysler service is hopeless - they have replaced a brake switch, replaced some computer part - still no luck -- any ideas??? Thanks. Sadie
#37 of 91 2005 Jeep Liberty Check Engine Light
Feb 22, 2008 (1:25 pm)
I had trouble with my CE light last year as well. While still under warranty I took it in to have it looked at and the dealer had a hunch it was something to do with the engine, but stated that Chrysler requires to have all kinds of other stuff like new spark plugs and fluids changed before they can repair the engine. So I had to pay $600 in non-warranty work only to have the light come back on 2 weeks later and then to take it back in and have to take out the engine to replace whatever was wrong (heads or something) and it took 5 days!! The second time I took it in they didn't even consult my previous record to understand what was wrong.
Now my air bag light is on and I'm not looking forward to whatever song and dance they have to fix that one.
This is my 4th and last Jeep - my car experiences have grown worse with each vehicle and the quality and service have gone down the tubes.
