    I have replaced the fuel filter, cap & rotor, wires, plugs, pcv valve, egr valve, throttle position sensor,and cleaned the idle air control still no luck.

  • texasgirl63 May 23, 2009

    If the timing chain has jumped will the engine still run well while in park or neutral at both high and low rpm ?

Try changing the fuel filter, and if that doesn't help, get back to me.

    Better check the timing then. Timing chain may have jumped.

    Yes it can. Only way to check is with a timing light. If, when you point the light at the timing mark, the mark is jumping around, you have a problem. The mark should stay pretty much in one position.

    You might want to check closely for vacuum leaks, too. Especially the intake. Dump some hot soapy water along your intake gaskets when it's running. If it bubbles, you have a leak. Check all the hoses with the engine running. They may be cracked or loose too.

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

I have a 2000 dodge caravan. When the engine is running with van in park engine runs fine. When put into a drive gear the engine runs really rough and even stalls. The transmission fluid is ok. When the...


Sounds like there is a problem with the Torque converter in the transmission or Transmission itself. When you put it in gear it should initially go into neutral but occasionally the transmission will stick part way in gear and partially in neutral putting a load on the motor. It is not enough of a load to get the vehicle moving but it is enough to stall the motor. This could be a simple clutch adjustment in the Automatic clutch to a PCV valve issue to a need to rebuild the whole transmission because of a problem with the control body or transmission pump itself. Sorry for the bad news.

89 z24 stalls instantly when shifting out of park


Your lockup torque converter is bad I believe. When you shift from Park into any gear it will die.

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


sounds like the torque converter lock up might not be disengaging. You might also want to check for engine vacuum leaks. Does engine idle smoothly when in park or nuetral ? if the idle is good I would suspect torque converter problem.
