Could have been a serious accident. With four wheel drive and V6 or diesel engines, Jeep Liberty boasted 5000 pounds of trailer-towing capability. So far I am told there is no recall. One cautionary note: If you find the notion of a Liberty diesel appealing, buy soon. To re-start, the fuel primer located on filter head had to be pumped.
I read on forum in the crd section that air might leak into the filter head, causing these symptoms. I looked at buying one new, and quickly realized the only reason I was drawn to it was the engine. Pulled over and opened hood, to find boiling diesel steam coming from heater electrical port on fuel head. Found some burnt and melted plastic where connector was. This truck is ready to drive anywhere.
I have since bought a newer Jeep and this has been an extra vehicle for us so now it is time for it to move on. The failure was noticed as wetness around the connector during a routine changing of the fuel filter. The plastic around the fuel heater connecter had scorch marks. From the moment of light-off, the Liberty's four begins emitting a symphony of rattles and growls, richly varied, depending on throttle position, but incessant. Hint: spool up time improved vs.
I began having problems starting a week ago. Beautiful white paint with light tan leather interior. The survey shows the record price of gasoline is affecting buying behaviour and motivating more fuel-efficient driving. The jeep's turbo is an old style. It now has 86,000 mi. Chrysler needs to be aware of this amd offer some course of action before someone gets hurt or killed. With its Garrett turbocharger blowing at max boost-26.
I found numerous incidents of this on-line. With the development of common-rail fuel systems, diesels have changed dramatically in the past two decades. The body is very clean with minimal dings or rust. It isn't a good vehicle if you have a family, but it works well for me. Barring some dramatic change in technology, passenger-car diesels will disappear by 2007, when Tier 2 emissions regs come on in full force. We have put together the absolute best quality components available in this kit.
Light up the Liberty's engine, close your eyes, and suddenly you're riding in a Mercedes diesel taxi, Stuttgart, circa 1985. The was built starting August 2006; the redesigned Jeep Liberty, on August 2007. You also get the same towing capacity as that of the 3. But there's the clatter problem. Same difference in my opinion.
I have gone to web sites and there are scores of people with the same dangerous condition with their vehicle. Thanks to massive system pressures-more than 20,000 psi is not uncommon, compared with 50 to 80 psi for gasoline port-injection systems-the fuel is more finely atomized, promoting a more complete and controlled burn, and that pays off with higher efficiency and reduced emissions. The recall replacement can hold up to the power after they detuned the engine, it can take some abuse, but the 300 dollar European converter from a Wrangler is better. Could of caused a severe accident. It seems like a serious issue. I found numerous incidents of this on-line.
A little sluggish off the line, it responds well to part throttle once engine revs hit about 1,500 rpm. It has a four-cylinder engine with a fuel economy of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 24 on the highway. In an era when most compression-ignition engines are almost as smooth and quiet as their gasoline counterparts, the Liberty's 2. Worse, burning-out heater elements and fuel leaks could lead to fire! The plug contained a male part of what is obviously a burned-out fuel heater, which has made a hole into the filter head. For me I don't need the extra horse power, tows great, and I am happy with the mileage which means more to me than the extra horse power. This Jeep is economical, capable, and comfortable. Inside, the company moved the power window switches, added new instrument panel cluster graphics and trim bezels, and upgraded the seats.
Considering there were reportedly less then 10,000 of these built, this is a serious issue. If fuel heater was to catch fire filter head and all fuel could burn to crisp in minutes. The rest had some towing, even some of those included towing. Filter elements obviously will burn out over time. Taller rear-seat passengers might find knee room tight.
The major addition to the line was a diesel engine option, provided by long-time Chrysler supplier in Europe. It is lifted for adventure, and set up to flat tow behind a motorhome for convenience. Year by year changes For 2006, the four-cylinder was dropped, making the V6 standard and diesel optional. Thanks to its abundant torque, which is reached at a low 1,800 rpm, it charges up hills that would have gas-powered four-cylinders hunting for the right gear. Overall it's a lot more fun to drive with the tune, but the Jetta is a heck of a lot better ride for longer drives. The starter spins the engine but it wont start. Possible fire hazard and stalling potential.
