    have you changed the plug wires, cap and rotor and fuel filter on the vehicle? those are the first things to cause problems like that.

Assuming it has a 3.1 V-6, it could be any # of failures. Bad plug wires, ignition coils, control module (under coil packs), crankshaft position sensor, map sensor, throttle position sensor, egr valve, fuel pressure regulator, fuel injectors, engine coolant temperature sensor, vacuum leaks; have it scanned for trouble codes to help in diagnosing! If you think it is just over fueling (flooding),look at fuel pressure regulator or coolant temp sensor ( when they fail the computer thinks its always -40 F causing it to over fuel). A bad map sensor can cause the same. Hope this helps. Thanks in advance for rating me!

We think that it stopped running due to no fuel. the engine ran rough ever since. Seems to be flooding to the point that fuel was getting into the oil in the sump. Running rough ever since.

Get a cylinder compression test done to check head gasket and to check head is not warped or cracked.
if head gasket or head problem = one cylinder may be affected causing fuel could get into the oil via a blown head gasket. if one cylinder not firing it would run rough.

Has the engine been over heated recently ?

2004 liberty 107000 miles. Engine runs rough at 2000-2500 RPM causing steering wheel and gas pedal vibration. plugs due to be changed.what else could cause this rough engine

I think you are on the right track with a tune up. Replace the wires, air filter and oil as well. I also would run a cleaner through the fuel lines. An STP or a Lucas would be better.

My laser is idling rough, then when under throttle is is running very rough. I have changed the spark plugs as the old one were really filthy. Still has not solved the problem. Please help

Check the oxygen sensor for correct operation as it sounds like you are flooding the engine. The injectors are not getting the correct pulses from the cpu because it cannot correctly read the exhaust gas.
