Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty
OK...so my Jeep Liberty has a few problems that I hope someone might have some insight into. Problem #1 - On really cold days it won't start. We have replaced the battery and alternator but still won't start on some really cold New England mornings. We have to get a boost and rev the engin 2000rpm's for a couple of minutes. Problem #2 problem is that on really cold days the heater does't heat up the car. The engine is running at normal temp but it only blows lukewarm air while driving on highway but on mild days I have to shut off the heat. Problem #3 is that the radio shuts off after running for 20 minutes and now it won't work all together. The radio still functions because on the really really cold morning that we get a boost the radio comes back on for 20 minutes and then starts blinking on and off until it finally quits working altogether. Can anyone help??
Problem 1: buy a system heater to keep the engine warm at night.
You can buy them at any autoparts store . You take your pick from the variety.
Place a light 100 Watt Bulb near the battery but not too close to anything else where it might burn anything.
Problem 2. Check your coolant level to see if you have the proper level. Make sure you have 1/2 antifreeze and 1/2 water if you add any coolant /antifreeze and bleed the colant system. By running the car let it cool, then turn the radiator cap or turn the bleed screw provided on some cars near the thermostat outlet. Then adding some more water and coolant etc.The tightening the cap or bleed screw. When radiator is full. Check the radiator and and remove any debris that may be keeping the air out.
Problem 3. Will get fixed because your battery won't die.
