2002 Jeep Liberty heater works, but defroster blows cold air

on all cars made
(you can read the FSM at any time and see exact way and tests)
1: damper stuck or its actuator bad. ( 3 kinds uses on all cars)
2 ;controls to damper actuator bad.
3: wires between both faulty.

3 types are motor, vacuum servo and cable.
you have 2 of the 3.
the blend is a motor actuator
the recric is vacuum servo
the motor types are very hard to test, read the FSM.

ill post the calibration


Use this procedure to ensure that the A/C-heater control is correctly calibrated to the blend door actuator. If the calibration is not correct, the heating-A/C system may experience a condition where full heating or cooling capabilities cannot be obtained.
Manual calibration of the A/C-heater control should be performed if the blend door actuator is not functioning properly, or if the temperature of the conditioned air is too warm with the temperature control in the full cold position or too cool with the temperature control in the full hot position.
NOTE This calibration procedure can only be started within the first ten seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF position to the ON position. Make sure that the battery is fully charged prior to beginning the calibration procedure. NOTE The length of the pause made at each end of the temperature control rotation (sweep) is important. 5 seconds) or too long (greater than 1.5 seconds).
  1. With the ignition switch in the OFF position, move the temperature control to its middle (12 o'clock) position.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (do not start the engine).
  3. Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition switch from the OFF to the ON position, perform the following rotations (sweeps) of the temperature control.
    • From the 12 o'clock position, rotate the temperature control counter-clockwise to the full cold position. Pause one second.
    • Rotate the control clockwise to the full hot position. Pause one second.
    • Rotate the control counter-clockwise to the full cold position. Pause one second.
    • Rotate the control clockwise to the full hot position. Pause one second.
    • Rotate the control counter-clockwise to the full cold position.

Serpentine belt routing


The detailed solution provided below will be of great help to you,just follow the steps carefully;

1.Raise the hood of your Subaru and support it with the prop rod. Locate the negative battery cable at the negative battery terminal. Remove the retaining bolt from the battery cable end with a wrench and separate the cable from the terminal.
Find the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine and place a socket on the apex bolt in the center of the idler pulley. Attach a breaker bar to the socket and rotate the tensioner clockwise until the belt is loose, then remove it from the pulleys. Rotate the tensioner back to the home position and let it sit there for now.

Install the new serpentine belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley. It is important that the belt follow the correct path over the pulleys. If you are unsure of the path, look for the sticker under the hood with the belt-path diagram on it.

Rotate the tensioner clockwise far enough to install the belt around the pulley on the tensioner, then slowly rotate the tensioner back to the home position. The tensioner will tighten the belt correctly and no adjustment is required.

Install the negative battery cable back on the negative battery terminal and install the retaining bolt. Tighten the bolt with a wrench, then close the hood.

Problem solved,

Good luck!!

Engine rotates bt doesn't start

Maybe sparkplugs or fuel. Air, Gas, Spark are what cause the engine to run so eliminating one by one should get you on the right path on finding out the root of the problem.

Need procedures on replacing the timing belt on a 2005 jeep liberty 2.4L engine.

first thing to do is disconnect the battery, then put a socket on the belt tensioner and rotate counter-clockwise to loosen and remove the belt. next locate the timing belt sprocket case (in front of the engine, top middle of engine) remove the screws holding the casing on. when you have it off you should see the 2 sprockets holding the timing belt, be careful to line up the 2 notches on the sprockets ( to do this you must turn the engine crank by hand using a wrench or ratchet) by this time you should see the bottom of the casing that houses the timing belt. remove the lower case and u should see the whole timing belt and set up. hop this helps you out.

I can't get the serpentine belt on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler

Before installing the new belt, rotate the tensioner pulley until it's in it's "free arm" position. This will enable you to get the belt routed around the other pulleys saving the tensioner pulley for last. Once on, rotate the belt until the tensioner pulley takes up slack. It should lock into place once the engine is started. Best of luck and please post back either with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you.

Squeels at start for first two seconds

The squeeling could be from a worn belt or if oil drips on belt overnight. Replace the belt first to see if that fixes it.Good luck.
