I have the 2006 liberty,I had the jeep looked at by the dealer,the motor has gone,from lack of oil changes. Not from me. the car was brought from a chrysler dealer who I am sure did not even look under the hood. When my repair shop dropped the oil pan,the oil was caked on.
The jeep was down from Prince George from a dealer ( ex Lease)
The Transmission also repaired up there.I had to repair it again,
Egr valve was stuck back with glue.
I have had to change all the sensors.
I brought the jeep with low miles for aprox $ 23
With the motor,I had to put in for 10. from the states, the transmission for 2500.
The dealer wanted 15000.00 for a motor if he could find one.
So let just say. It has not been the best jeep so far,

IŽam so sorry to hear of your problems.So what are you going to do?.
I bought my jeep in 2007, used from a dealer with almost no miles on. This is the first time that i had any problems, i was very happy with my jeep until last Saturday. I always considered the jeep to be very good. However after the problem i started looking around on the internet and from what i saw people are saying,I was lucky to have almost five trouble free years. After seeing what most people are saying about the jeep. IŽam thinking, after repairs, sell and get something else. Presently i have no other make or model in mine.IŽll have to start giving it some taught. ItŽs time for a change.I really never knew that the jeep was such a pain in the butt. If and when i sell it,IŽll really miss the old girl.

When the dealer told us that the motor would cost 15000,00, he offered us $4000 for a trade in,without a motor.(right get on that)
We began to look around for a motor ourselfs,we found a cheap one out of a wreak.
It took a month to repair,we told the repair shop take their time.
So far no problems,
But what to do trade it in? I am still paying for it. So we keep and drive it until it dies,
maybe it will last for a long time.

we have identical missing and jerking problem 2011 liberty. started at 2000 miles. been to 2 dealers totaling 3 trys and problem detected on 2nd and 3rd but told there is no fix. referred to lemon dept by our case mgr. but was told no repair attempts made and it requires 4 repair attempts, with parts actually replaced. neither dealer knows what to replace. dealer in daphnie, alabama told us chrysler engineer told him there is no fix. Both dealers have other jeeps currently with same problem. Lemon dept referred us back to case mgt and supposed to talk to them tomorrow for next steps. We are contacting attorney as none of this makes any sense, just a run around. at Gulf shores jeep on my 1st visit, service mgr said it was characteristic and would probably get worse. 2nd time tech drove it home after i threw a fit and he detected problem, but told no fix. please stay in touch. i will check this page and keep posting. not going to let them steal our money! I guarantee chrysler is aware they have a problem.

I am a former owner of a 2005 CRD. Check the hoses from the turbo to the intercooler (passenger side) and from the intercooler to the intake (driver side). These hoses are known to soften up and pop off the connectors. Also, these hoses are also known to rupture. If the hoses are still intact and not too soft remove them and clean them. Apply Indian Head shellac to the connectors and inside the hoses. Wait a couple of minutes and attach the hoses and snug down the clamps. I did that with mine and the hose never popped off again.
Replacing them is not cheap and only Sanco, as far as I know, makes after market hoses.

ThankŽs George, IŽll check the hoses immediately and follow your instructions. Hope this solves my problem.Once again thank you.

One other thing to look at is the MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). It is easy to get to and lives just beyond the air cleaner box. It can be removed and cleaned with MAF cleaner. Do not use any other cleaner on the MAF.
Also, there is a pressure sensor in the intake manifold toward the back of the engine. It is sort of buried under the wiring harness. Has that ever been pulled and cleaned? With the engine cold, get a 4mm Allen wrench and remove the two screws holding it to the intake manifold, but remove the connector from it first. Clean the sensor with a mild solvent, Castle Clean or Brake Cleaner, put a touch of grease on the O-ring and replace it. This sensor gets pretty well covered in soot because of the exhaust gas recirculation.

Hi. I have a 2011 Jeep Liberty 70th Edition and the truck started hesitating bad and jerking then the MIL light started flashing. Jeep barely made it home. I will call dealer in the am. Truck only has 28,000 miles on it. Anyone else having this problem or know what is causing it? Thanks

The 3.7 litre engines are junk. The low grade fuel causes carbon build up on the pistons and cylinder walls causing hesitation and misfire. Use a good grade of fuel and add a good fuel treatment every 1000 miles and this will help. The dealer will make up things just to get you service dollars but try what I've told you. My advice is to sell it while its new and get something else. Most Jeep libertys have had engines replaced as early as 50k. They are nice vehicles to look at but really crappy on the reliability.
