2002 Jeep Liberty won't start without pushing gas pedal

Jeep doesn't start unless you press the gas and raise the rpms. Then you have to hold the accelerator for a minute or so until the rpms even out or it will stall. Sometimes it won't start and we have disconnected the battery for a few minutes and it will start. We have replaced the throttle body positioning censor and air idle control sensor. It does have and exhaust leak, also.

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???????

Have you checked for a vacuum leak? Be suspicious of the solenoids you see with vacuum lines going to them. I think it has 3 or 4 of them. don-ohio

SOURCE: 1994 chevy lumina van. It will start and idle but stalls when gas

you have a fuel pump relay that may be defective, or fuel pump or maybe the crank position sensor,a cam position sensor.the best thing is to have a scan performed with an obd1 scanner and you will know where to start the repair.

SOURCE: battery drains and idle problems when jumped. 2002 Jeep Liberty

I would look at the fuses and fuseable links, and check the output of the alternator. If you disconnect the battery you can check the battery for a dead cell, and check the major circuits for a draw with everything turned off.

After my 03 jeep liberty warms up to normal, the idle begins to fluctuate until it goes down to 500 rpms than wants to shut off but revs itself up to stay on, now when I am in park and rev the rpms up it...


It's not a gas pedal, it's an air pedal. Fuel injected engines are all about air flow at idle. take off the intake snorkel and check out your throttle body. You may just need a new throttle position sensor, or the Idle solenoid that regulates idle air flow is stuck. The computer will try to compensate, but it can only do so much.

2002 Jeep Liberty 2WD 377l v6 won't idle when first started up.


it doesn't have to do with the battery. I just had this same problem. Clean the carbon out of the IAC and test to see if this solves the problem. Should it not, the next step is to replace the Throttle Position Sensor. This is a common problem with this model of jeep. The can of cleaner and the sensor only cost 45 bucks, and about an hour total to do.
