You are in the Jeep Liberty and Jeep Liberty Diesel

I have finally gotten my 2004 jeep liberty back from the
dealer and it seems to be fine. They finally decided after
replacing the fuel pump, computer, fuel injector that the
first fuel pump was defective and the second on seems to have corrected the problem. I had an extended warranty so incurred only the $100 deductible for three weeks of repairs so I would advise anyone buying a car
these days to purchase the extended warranty. Mine
paid for five days rental and the dealer paid for another
five days. I really do enjoy my Jeep Liberty and sure hope this is the end of trouble with it - it is the first problem I have had after purchasing it new in April of
#10 of 21 2002 Jeep Liberty "locked up" while driving on road
Aug 18, 2009 (5:31 am)
My daughter's 2002 Jeep Liberty is having transmission/transfer case issues . She was going down the road and the car locked up with no warning and did a 4 wheel skid into the ditch. Fortunately she wasn't killed or injured as no one was around when it happened and it was on a straight road.
Her extended warranty ended three months ago (of course) and the Jeep dealer just told us it will cost $400 just to "look at the problem" which they think is in the transfer case.
I'm not real impressed with the Raleigh jeep dealers ability to diagnose and fix problems on our Jeep (based on their past record with this vehicle).
Should we junk the jeep and get a Toyota Prius? If the transfer case is the problem and it is fixed (the first time) will the transmission or rear end go next because of the strain of the hard lockup on the road?

The same thing just happened to me! I was driving up a hill and my wheels locked causing me to swurve uncontrollably across 4 lanes of traffic and back, spinning around and finally landing on the curb facing the wrong direction of traffic. My accident is still being investigated but the mechanic said it was a faulty rear mount. I am still waiting to hear the final verdict from Chrysler....you are the third person that I have heard of to have this happen. Did they fix (or replace)the transfer case? How is it running? I love my jeep and hope to regain the same confidence and reliability that I always had. Good Luck

Have a look here:
In order to block both front and rear wheels due to a fault of the transmission, you would need some kind of debris to penetrate inside the transfer case differential. It is located underneath the chain and satellite gears you can see in picture "nv242_1.jpg".
This seems quite frightening
The gears located at the bottom of the picture provide the extra "LO" ratio.

Put a set of bilstein shocks on your truck -- even better.

My sister has been w/o her jeep for over a month now. The trusted mechanic just told her that she needs to rebuild or replace her transmission 1300 to 1400 dollars. What do you think, is she just gonna keep on having problems, is a rebuilt or used transmission gonna really do much? She can't throw their money in the pits, she needs to make a wise choice. Payment on a loan for say 1500 for about one year, or payment on a car, say three to four year loan. By the way its a standard and she has painful arthritis in her hips, etc. Thanks ahead for the sincere advice. God Bless.

Considering the nonsense I have had to endure since the engine in my Jeep diesel blew up and also considering that whenever a dealer has one of the engines (diesel), they get many calls from other dealers looking to buy the engine from them. Now that says something about this particular engine that just might not be favorable.
#18 of 21 2003 Jeep Liberty windows problem
Jul 25, 2011 (2:12 pm)
I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty and the rear windows have gone out not just once but twice. Now they want $860.00 to fix it again. The paint is coming off the roof, and when I am going down hill and step on the brakes the car shakes like crazy along with the stearing wheel, I think the car is a piece of junk. The jeep dealership I took it to told me they have replaced the part it needs with a new one because they have had so much trouble with the windows, then why haven't they had a recall on them??
