My 2005 jeep liberty over heats, any solutions


check to see if you have a viscous fan hub and if so then replace it . Check when the overheating occurs If it is at stop lights but cools down when travelling. It is the hub. If it overheats when going slow and under load it will be the hub. If it overheats when travelling fast then check the radiator for core blockage and have a compression test done to check for head gasket / cracks Run fault codes and check for blocked exhaust system --cat converter)

Car is still over heating, have replaced heat sensor switch,fuel sensor switch,fuel air sensor and flushed the radiator.


Have you changed out the thermostat and checked for exhaust blow by from a head gasket leak? One quick way to check for blow by would be if you start the car with the cap off on the radiator and see if antifreeze begins to rise up in the radiator before the engine warms up. Exhaust leaking into the water jacket will bubble up through the radiator. This hot exhaust gas will cause you to overheat. A stuck thermostat will keep the antifreeze from ever reaching the radiator to cool down also causing you to overheat.

I've a freelander td4 yr04 just had it a month and it's starting to judder some times shucking black smoke out when apply more power and theres a rattling noise


Faulty Injector or timing

If the injector is not spraying correctly you will be burning neat diesel out of the exhaust.

The effect of one cylinder missing will make the judder

If you bought it from a dealer take it back if you bought it off the street find a good fitter

Overheating and missing


The first thing to do is quit throwing parts at your car. That said, this is a very generic answer. Missing and overheating that started in a similar timeframe is quite possibly a head gasket issue. More info would be needed such as exactly how does your guage act, does it overheat quickly if you keep the rpms up? Does it smell sweet near the exhaust? Does it Smoke/steam out the exhaust when you first start it? Where any of your spark plugs white on the electrode end? Also a clogged cat. can give you this trouble. At idle everything is fine, at higher rpms the exhaust cant get out fast enought holding in the heat (overheating after a while) and causing a miss just the same as if a exhaust valve was stuck. Two things to think about.
