#118 of 210 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 misfire and noise??
Oct 06, 2010 (11:34 pm)
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 210 Our brand new 2011 Jeep Liberty that has shudders/jerkyness
Oct 17, 2010 (6:57 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?
#122 of 210 Burn valve club - Jeep Liberty
Nov 30, 2010 (6:43 pm)
I have just been given the news I have a burnt valve on my 2007 Jeep liberty with only 41k. Just bought in August. Interesting, I had the same issues and symptons that I have been reading. Anyone want to share their thoughts? I luckily bought an extended warranty......but have not received the verdict on coverage.

I stopped using cheap gas, put some gumout fuel system cleaner and my problem went away. Shell gas, Walmart, Kroger gas are not worth the savings. Quick Trip, Texaco, Chevron, and BP gas. The high concetrations of Ethanol with cause a lower flash point and missfire . My engine has 80,000 miles and I have to use mid grade to avoid value rattles.

I too think there should be a legal action. I am still dealing with loose intake valve, with a 4th trip into the dealership within a 2 months. They have been very helpful. But will this be a quick fix -band aid on the problem. I feel they know there is a major issue as does Chrysler. For the future I am hesitant about the worthiness of the car or any Jeep/Chrysler product.

I have a 2002 liberty, it recently die out and when I restarted it was shaking and knocking. I had it towed to the repair shop. Mechanic removed valve cover the valve spring on piston # 4 was broken. He removed the head and found a broken valve sear and a blowed piston. It appears the sear became loose and drop down during combustion and was trap between the valve and the seat. The fragments caused the piston to blow.
