I got it home and check a little further and noticed fuel leaking out of the fuel heater plug. Make sure that the warranty replacement of the tranny torque converter was done. Not only is the engine way loud — you can't hold a conversation driving around town in the Liberty with the windows up — it doesn't deliver enough horsepower to keep up with traffic on the freeway. It took me a several attempts to restart the motor. The Jeep folks cite a number of reasons for the extra racket, namely, the simple fact that the four-banger has large 694cc cylinders that create a lot of noise. Make sure that the warranty replacement of the tranny torque converter was done.
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. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 12V-085. The downer, as noted, is that the Liberty is small on the inside--less interior space than the vehicle it replaced, the Cherokee. The different engines have a similar towing capacity and acceleration, making diesel more economical for many people. I observed when the ignition was tuned on, the fuel leaked and vaporize as it was being shorted and heated. Torque-y and neat but nothing amazing. Going for the bigger engine or the gas turbo in the Outback sinks its fuel economy.
While the connector was off, and I was waiting for the replacement part the vehicle would not start 2 separate times because air was entering through the connector. Jeep expects the diesel will get about 25-percent-better fuel economy than the V-6 in real-world driving. Please tell me so I can have it measured because I have volumes. Most Chrysler Jeep Dealers sold or had very few. Something in the emission system. The rear passenger housing has been replaced free by the dealer.
In the era that followed the fuel hysteria of the '70s, diesels were offered by a number of automakers, and we dutifully passed the info along to you. You got a good deal. Its highway fuel economy can approach 30 mpg, which is pretty comparable to the Outback. It improves the ground clearance and gives the Liberty stout enough front springs to bear the extra weight of the diesel engine. With the development of common-rail fuel systems, diesels have changed dramatically in the past two decades. Appealing, we should add, almost exclusively to guys, particularly guys living in the wide-open West, according to DaimlerChrysler.
In the affected vehicles, the springs within the clutch pedal position switch that prevents the vehicle from starting unless the clutch pedal is pushed down may break. On vehicles in the recall that are not equipped with a tow hitch, Chrysler will install a Chrysler designed tow hitch free of charge, provided the condition of the vehicle can support proper installation. Well, I actually went through with the purchase of an '06 from Littleton. On vehicles in the recall that are equipped with an aftermarket tow hitch, Chrysler will assess whether the hitch and surrounding areas show evidence of sharp edges or other puncture risks. A whole lot depends on how you intend to use the vehicle. Remedy Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear lower control arms, free of charge.
The contact smelled fuel inside the passenger compartment twice. The technician said it's ok to drive the Jeep until next week when the part arrives. No air in return line found. I feel what you're saying about the high-quality Diesels sold in Europe and how we here in the states are relegated to the limited choices offered by sellers here. When I trade it in, it will be for another Liberty! I will not be considering anything from this dealership again.
The filter head where the fuel filter is attached also has a heating elemnt. It appears that the heater is over heating and melting the non-metallic filter head where the connector penetrates and seals. The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Liberty diesel. There's a little bit of a toy quality to the Liberty — it is definitely a cute ute, not an intimidating vehicle by any means. Diesel engines are about 20 percent more efficient than comparable gasoline types, so they burn less fuel.
I will keep all defective parts for your inspecton upon your request thank you. I have had mine for 3 years and still love it for the most part. Remedy Owners may take their vehicles to dealers and the dealers will perform a free inspection of the rear structure. As a result, the vehicle may not be started when the clutch pedal is pushed down or the engine may crank and start without the clutch pedal being pushed down causing the vehicle to unexpectedly lurch. You sit up high in the Liberty, with a good view of the road ahead. When these things go, the window just falls. It has a four-cylinder engine with a fuel economy of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 24 on the highway.
It comes equipped with an automatic transmission. Those modifications mentioned earlier will be done eventually. Chrysler's number for this recall is R13. Air is in the fuel. Several of the Liberty's competitors are also gone: Both Suzuki and Pontiac no longer sell cars in the United States, and the Honda Element was discontinued after the 2014 model year. 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.
The contact stated that when refueling to capacity, fuel would leak from the vehicle. I was such a fool to believe him. Several recalls on this leased vehicle running up miles back 2 dealer rear window fall down repaired motor tried 2 quit 3 times could be dangerous in traffic seems it loses prime on fuel system. I unplugged it and a small amount of fuel dumped out. There's no poser power in driving the Liberty. Going for the bigger engine or the gas turbo in the Outback sinks its fuel economy. The connector that plugs into the filter head is black around one of the pins.
