#177 of 209 06 Jeep Liberty, my nightmare!!!
Jan 12, 2012 (9:08 pm)
Bought my 06 jeep used back in 2008 and it has given me nothing but trouble ever since. 3 windows have fallen down, thank goodness that was fixed with the extended warranty. But just recently my key got stuck in the ignition and broke off, I got it taken out and as soon as I put in the new key, it happened again. The ignition switch must be replaced and on top of that... My engine started smoking really bad and I've been told by 3 mechanics that the engine needs I be replaced. I still owe a lot on this piece of junk and I found out that it's only worth 2k at the most in the condition it's in right now. I dont have the money to put into it and frankly i dont think its worth it after reading all of the other posts that deal with the same issues I'm having. It's sad to think there is no one out there that will take responsibility for the problems these jeep libertys are giving people. They need to recall them!!!! I will be selling my "junk" for 3500... Depressing. I'll never buy a Jeep EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!

I have has similaer issues since last October. I have a 2006 Liberty Ltd. with 141,000 kilomters. Last October the Engine light came on. The Jeep Dealer replaced spark plugs and purged the injectors, $429.00. Jan. 2 ,2012 engine light came on again. Took to my local garage (not a jeep dealer) and had another tune up done and clylinder 6 coil was repalced, $537.00. Jan 31, 2012 light was back on. Went to the Jeep Dealer I bought in from and after an inspection was tolf that there was a misfire in cylinder 6 ans was caused by a carbon build up. 16 hours later I have the Jeep back another bill for $232.00. Took the Jeep for a good hour drive and it seems to be running much better but after what I have read on The Internet in the last 24 hours about this same issue I am not thinking the fix will last. I asked my dealer if the had run into this before and he said one in a van but I thhink the must be more cases out there after reading a bit.

Check for a crack in your turbo charger., check your glow plug too, also you may wish to change your dies fuel fllter Mine did the same thing but it is diesel.
If its gas model check your fuel filter,timing, air fuel mixture.
Also invest in and OBDII scanner they range from $ 40 up to $ 300 and save a lot of headaches.
#184 of 209 Engine shut down

While driving my jeep liberty 2006, the engine shutdown and would not restart. on checking i found oil in the air intake and filter. Could this be the cause for the engine to shutdown, and why did oil get in there?.

For some reason my Liberty diesel has no power. There are no warning lights on. Starts fine, idles fine. But with the pedal to the floor I'm lucky to get 45 mph. Could it be a fuel filter? I know nothing about diesels. Any suggestions will be welcome.
