Question about 2003 Jeep Liberty
2003 jeep liberty sport. Was on highway doing 60 when it lost engine power. pulled over, and waited a couple minutes. Started rough, but when I put it in drive, it died. Waited about 30 mins, and tried again. Drove about 4 miles and the same thing. Starts rough, and dies when you put it in gear. The ODB light is on, and I know I should get it checked, but if there is a common solution, would rather go that route. Can't get it to a ODB reader at this time.
Most large parts stores read codes free. Most common cause is crank sensor, but I'd have code checked before buying anything.

I know nothing about cars but the same thing happened to my '03 Liberty exactly as you're describing. I also noticed it would die turning a corner at low speed sometimes. Also, when I had it in for smog check, they said some of the sensors had no data on them and they asked if I had disconnected the battery recently, which I hadn't.
The battery tested weak so I replaced it and have had no problems since then. That was 3 months ago.

I had the exact same problem on my 2003 Jeep Liberty. I had 72,000 miles on it. I managed to get it to my repair shop. The issue was not only the crank sensor, but also the cam shaft sensor. When I checked the computer fail codes, both codes came up. I replaced both of them and have not had a problem since. I contacted my local Jeep dealer and it seems that this is a common problem.
