Question about 2003 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

2003 Liberty. Starts and shuts off

Just bought, was running fine. After starting this morning it ran for about 3 seconds and then shut off. Tried a few more times, same thing. Nosed around engine and noticed the upper radiator hose was totally collapsed. I released the pressure on the overflow tank and it regained most of it's shape. Started right up and ran fine after this. Overflow reservoir was at the right level. What might have caused this, will it happen again, how is it corrected???? Thanks

SOURCE: my 2001 jeep liberty needs water added often, like

OK, you know that you are loosing coolant somewhere. What you need to do (I can't from here) is carefully look at everything that water passes through till you find evidence of seepage. Check the ground where you park (but remember that coolant will run down and across, dripping somewhere other than exactly where the leak is) Check the chassis after sitting a few hours, under the pump pulley and head/block parting lines..rug on passenger side and heater control valve on hoses going into firewall.but definitely EVERWHERE.

SOURCE: '03 Jeep Liberty starts weakly and needs gas pedal to idle

Turning over is what the starter does to the engine ...you can turn an engine over with no spark plugs in it...but you can't start it. Turning over is cranking .....the starter turns (cranks) the engine over (comes from when you had to put a crank in the front of the engine and crank it.)
Does it crank normally but has trouble starting???????

Hey Mudkicker,

Who ever thought of putting an electric fuel pump inside a tank of gas........

Check your other gauges for accuracy. They do that when a ground is loose.

Check the wiring from the fuel tank along the longitudinal frame for frays and shorts. Plugs are secured.

Under the hood, passenger side, check the fuel pump relay. Switch it with one of the others to test it.

Bring the vehicle to an auto parts store. Ask them to break out he code reader. Check for diag codes

Comment me back
Mike.

2003 jeep liberty wont start


Could be the battery, the starter, or a bad connection between the battery and starter.
A mechanic would check for voltage and ground at the starter first.

Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.
