Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

Squeels at start for first two seconds

2002 4wd jeep liberty v6 80k miles. When first started w/cold engine it squeels for the first 1-2 seconds and then stops. Once the engine is warm and you start it, it doesn't squeel. Thought maybe the starter but someone mentioned the steering pump; steers fine though.

    My 2002 Jeep does the same thing. On a cold start it makes an awful sound. The belt is fine.

The squeeling could be from a worn belt or if oil drips on belt overnight. Replace the belt first to see if that fixes it.Good luck.

00.6v at the fuel pump


are you reading the meter right ?, less that 1 volt?
did you crank the engine and read,many car dont start the pump unit cranked.
it must be 12v or 11v if very cold and bettery volts sag a bit (1v) cranking. that is how you do this.
on some jeeps (i dont do liberty) the ASD works like this.
the 2 second rule.
TAKES 2 people to test a JEEP.
not 1.
one to crank and one to measure.
the PCM allows 2 seconds. of full spark and injections
if it sees errors,. it kills every thing, spark and fuel.
its jeep.

2004 dodge stratus squeeling , heavy steering


the pump dies when the engine stalls or runs too slow.
so, the steering has nothing to do with that , unless the
pump seized, so drop the belt and start car.
if car will not start, that is a no start question
post it as, cranks fast but will not start. and what engine option
some have diesel.

Engine makes squeeling noise when first started


Check the belts are still tight enough, sometimes they slacken off with use and then start to squeal, especially in cold/damp weather.

While trying to start my 2002 jeep liberty limited edition 2wd 3.7l engine I only get a click, after any number of clicks it finally starts.


It sounds like you need a new battery. If it's a 2002, then it's probably on it's second battery already and due for a new one. The clicking is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter with the flywheel. If the battery can't supply enough "cold cranking amps" or "power", then it makes that clicking noise.

My dad's Liberty will start with no problem but then the engine light flashes 5 times and then will stall once it hits second gear-please tell me what the 5 flashes mean


I would take the vehicle to your local autozone and have the codes checked and that can tell you with a lot more accuracy what the issue is.
Thanks,
Lee

You need to check your electric fan under the radiator cowl. That pull the heat away from the ac radiator. Liberty's have two fans. One Mechanical and one electric.
