I have one on my MY 2003. It came with the truck and works fine. I never had air bubbles trapped in the fuel circuit.

Yes, I striped the drain plug (weird metric size, 16.3mm) and I drilled and taped to a common 18-1.5 mm drain plug. Yes, the pan is soft aluminum.

My engine is older than yours but the oil pan is made of steel. You may be able to buy and mount the old oil pan ?

Caribou 1- I called VM and spoke to a very nice lady who told me since I was out of warrenty there was nothing they could do and even if I was in warrenty it would be Chrylsers problem to deal with. She did however give me her email address and asked me to let them know what was found when the engine was opened.
The person who bought the jeep from me, as I said earlier, found out it was going to be a very expensive engine replacement and resold it on Craigs list for what he paid me for it.
So I will never know....still bothers me that I could not afford to pull that engine and see for myself what went wrong. A lot of people ask about the timing belt, it had just been changed and that breaking would not do so much damage that all the water dumped into the engine.....Love to know if anyone else has experienced this at 137,000 on their CRD...

A few local posters complain about tremendous cost of repair and I found no information describing block damage or major cooling fluid leak. The Liberty was sold in a version called "Wild Dream" in France and I now believe this was premonitory
Those (like me) who bought the 'derated' version (150HP) got the original and reliable engine plus a flawless transmission. I once saw our engine on a workbench and I would send it to a motorcycle specialist rather than to the local mechanics for repair because it's tightly packed with moving parts everywhere and the aluminum block has very thin walls. Another argument about cost is that local owners put cheap tires on their Jeeps. Perhaps the market study didn't see the financial crisis along the road...
Like in many domains, we should only buy what we can afford to pay cash and to buy in two examples
