#78 of 93 2003 Jeep Liberty 3.7L whining & slipping
Oct 20, 2009 (3:20 pm)
I have a 2003 Liberty which I bought new. I have had so many problems with this vehicle. 2 motors, 3 transmissions (the 1st was replaced at 4000 miles) bearings, air conditioning problems nonstop......etc.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed a growling noise with matching vibration, during acceleration. We checked bearings and differential then changed the fluid in the transfer case because we saw that it was a dark brown color. Growling noise didn't go away. A few days after that, a medium pitched whining noise that sounds like it's coming from the tranny or transfer case area. Few days later, the transmission is slipping.
Any suggestions are very much appreciated.

Have similair sounds from my 05 CRD that I am trying to diagnose. What was outc ome of your problem back in 08? At idle mine is quiet but it screems at higher rpms and seems to come from the rt fwd (looking fwd) area of compartment but no sound when the belt is removed and all the pulleys etc spin free and quiet by hand. Idlers were quoted at $81.00 ea so I'm trying to be cautious. Comments anyone?
#80 of 93 Front end Noise while braking
Jun 26, 2010 (4:11 pm)
I own a 2002 Liberty and recently I have noticed a noise coming from the front while braking. I had my rotors checked and they are fine.
The noise is odd, not metal on metal, kind of a pulsating whine maybe, it is hard to describe.
If you stop hard you don't hear it as much but if you brake slowly the noise starts.
Any thoughts on what this could be would be greatly appreciated.
#81 of 93 Grinding sound 2005 Liberty Renegade
Jan 14, 2011 (11:14 am)
I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade Edition. It has been very well cared for and just went over 100k. We had a major snow storm here in MA on Wednesday. I put it in 4 wheel drive to get through the snow and it seemed to be fine. I never use the 2 low or the 4 wheel drive. After the storm I put it back in the normal gear and now it is having a hard time reversing. I put it in reverse and sounds like it is in neutral and when I turn at very slow speeds (i.e. parking there is a grinding sound). This sound cannot be heard at any other speed. Both issues only occur occasionally and I have no clue what it could be.
At first I thought it could be stuck snow but it is not. Since I do not use the other 2 low or 4 wheel drive could this be a factor? Does anyone have any clue what is going on with it?
Thanks for any help!
#83 of 93 2004 Jeep Liberty noise in front wheels
Dec 29, 2011 (2:03 pm)
I've driven my eight-year-old Jeep through a lot of rough roads, and over time it started to make a sort of squeaking, swinging noise in the front wheels or axles. The noise has finally grown so loud that I want to repair it, but right now that I'm in a more humid city it is temporarily not making the noise, and a couple of mechanics who have inspected it have said nothing looks wrong just from looking at it. When I'm in Austin, TX, the noise is very defined and loud with the slightest speed bump or other pothole or hump I hit. Would anyone have any idea what it could be?
#84 of 93 "Ringing" sound when in reverse and making a left turn
Mar 18, 2012 (4:38 pm)
I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty with 112,000+ miles on it. When in reverse it is making a "ringing" kind of sound and also when making a left turn. I hear it once in a while while driving. What can it be? I hope nothing major, going to take it to a mechanic since I have an 1100 mile trip ahead of me. Please help and give me a heads up on this so I can give mechanic an idea what is going on? Thanks!!!
#85 of 93 Jeep Liberty 2002 , rhythmic noise under hood passenger side.
Apr 05, 2012 (3:47 pm)
Monotone rhythmic noise under the hood passenger side of '02 liberty. Sounds like something is rhythmically turning on and then off 5 seconds later, and then back on and then off. This continues while stopped at a stoplight or while the engine runs while in a parked position. It is not a high pitched whine or whining sound but more lower sounding monotone buzz or hum. Any idea what it could be ?
#87 of 93 Vehicle shuttering
Apr 23, 2012 (8:38 pm)
I have a 2003 liberty. I have a shuttering in my car during breaking. When I complete the stop the car seems to "reset". It is felt throughout the car and causes my arms to shake with the steering wheel. Started several months ago, then stopped with no known reason. Started again today. Then shuttering makes a loud noise that can be heard by people on the street. I know because I've gotten looks. Any ideas? Mechanic found nothing.
