I have aa 2002 Jeep Liberty, 103,000 mi Always perfectly maintained, oil and fluids always clean. Ran like new. Last week car would not turnover, finally after pressing gas petal hard a few times it started but with an extemely loud sound. Sort of a banging. Found out after investing thousands constantly replacing brakes, steering, radiators ect, I now need a head job, about 2600.00. It is probably easier to just replace engine but what next! I am getting rid of it and will never get a jeep again.

I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty Limited that only has 63,000 miles. Bad Cylinder 2. I may be trading this weekend. Of course, it has new tires too.
#114 of 207 head gaskett/lifters
Jun 15, 2010 (11:35 am)
last week my check engine light came on went to my mechanic and he said I needed a new right head gasket and radiator. Radiator was clogged which could have been why head gasket failed. So he did both head gaskets he also did not send the heads to a machine shop in an effort to save me money and the time but isn't this a necessary step? and replaced the radiator. One week later check engine light is flashing and there is a knocking noise in the engine. I thought a part was going to fly out! So he listened last night and said it was a lifter noise. Which is in the same place he was just at. Could he have caused the lifter problem? Or shouldn't he have seen it while he was in there?

After having to replace my crank sensor twice and my cam sensor, my Jeep still had issues. Turns out even if your vehicle is off, that the coils are still hot and because of that, I had to replace 4 or the 6 coils. Almost $1,000 later it seems ok.. Gone about 50 miles.. So far. I called Chrysler to complain and to check if there are any recalls and I was told to go to the highway traffic administration website to check for any recalls or to make a complaint. I was told that the only way Chrysler will go about reimbursement or to fix issues such as these is if people go to that site and make official complaints. It only took me ten minutes to send it in. I could not believe how many people with Jeep Liberty’s had the same exact issues as we did. Thought I would send this link.. Maybe if we complain we can get some place.. Lesson in all of this, if your crank sensor or cam sensor needs to be replaced, disconnect the battery or your going to have to replace melted coils.

I'm having the same problem, AC runs even when compressor button in off position. Were you able to get this resolved?
#118 of 207 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 misfire and noise??
Oct 07, 2010 (12:34 am)
My 2002 Liberty with the 3.7 litre engine lost power and the engine symbol came on under hard acceleration getting on the freeway. This was the second time. The first time was bad fuel at Walmart. My wife did not know that I have been using BP or Chevron 89 Octane. My mechanic said it was a misfire and turned the light off . I put some fuel additive in and the problem went away. This second time was a misfire on #4 cylinder, He turned the light off and said if it happens again we would need to look at the coil or injector. The Jeep has 159,000 miles with 89,000 on the second engine. I am using Mobil 1 10w40 high mileage oil and it uses a quart every 1000 miles vs every 700 on conventional 10w30. Now I have a rattle in the engine under hard acceleration. Almost like valves rattling, but a more airy sound to it. I need some advice on this...
#119 of 207 Our brand new 2011 Jeep Liberty that has shudders/jerkyness
Oct 17, 2010 (7:57 pm)
We bought a brand new 2011 Jeep Liberty and had only 9 miles on it. We have had a jerkiness in the engine from day one that feels like a shudder. The next Monday we took it back to the delership and the technician that serviced it said no codes came back so we took it for test drive and he confirmed that there was definatally something wrong with the Jeep and maybe sometime in the future they might have a computer upgrade to deal with this issue. He stated that there were similar complaints on this same issue going back to older models and he would called manufacturer but everyone was out to lunch. So we asked to speak with the service manager who proceeded to tell us that he had another customer that complained about the same issue but ened up liking the way the Jeep drove. He then told us to drive it for a little while longer to, "break-it-in" but the Jeep still constentally shudders/jerks. Has anyone had any smiliar issues? Thanks

2011 jeep liberty has engine problem. Jerks and feels like a miss at 55 mph while in 4th gear. Two different dealers can find no codes or problems. Drove another like liberty and it has the same problem. This makes it a Chrysler/Jeep problem. I'm waiting to hear from them as to what the solution is to fix this very anoying problem.

Talked to Chrysler rep today and they are still saying that they will get back to me. It is a very annoying problem having the engine feel like it is missing and surging. That along with the vibration, coming from something is also a problem that needs fixing. I would not give Chrysler/Jeep a favorable reccomendation based on there lack of response to my problem. Anyone else having problems with a new 2011 Jeep?
