Time for a code check.

Posted on Nov 26, 2013

Testimonial: "Code was P1389, I had accidentally short cranked it over the weekend, (had shoulder surgery so had to start with left hand) and my hand slipped off the key so I think I threw the starter off. After a few times of starting and stopping it seems to have gotten lined back up. This morning, where it was very cold out again it started up just fine and the engine light is off. So hope this is the end of this problem..."

I had a skim module go out in mine in the ignition, and I have a 2001. It's a 100 part, and now it starts fine.

Are you getting spark from coil wire when cranking? If so, check the cap & rotor. If not, the most common failure is the crank sensor. If you have a 4,0, you can find it on the drivers side of the bellhousing, in line with the flywheel, just where it's annoying to work on. There is a test you can make, but I don't have the specific test values or the correct terminals to check. (you can find that info in any half decent manual.
Good luck

SOURCE: Hard starting when cold ( engine cranks normally )

see if your engine has a ECT sensor (temp sensor that delivers information to your ECM) they are installed on the intake side of the cylinder head, it usually has 2 cables, have it checked replace if necesary

After I drive my jeep some, if it is somewhat warm or not cold weather, my jeep has a hard time starting. It may crank but run a little ways and cut off going down the road.I have had the coil, plugs, plug...


if it shuts off after running for a while and will not restart for about 10 min,a bad crank sensor will cause this. abad crank sensor will make car shut off and not restart for about 10 min. put a scanner on to make sure. a check engine light does not allways come on. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free.

'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???????

2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7L Engine Swap to newer 2004 engine


Has anyone made this work yet? I have the same problem 2002 jeep 3.7 and just installed a 04 motor. Timing is off. Some one had a good idea of mounting the crank gear to the out side of the harmonic ballancer and mounting the sensor with a bracket. What about the cam gear on the left side. Does the timing cahain have to come off to remove it? Or has any one swaped the wiring harnest, and computer.
Please email me back. pcardoso@cogeco.ca Thanks for your help.
