Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

2002 Jeep Liberty has an intermittent starting problem. At times the car will not start, the starter will not even engage. If left for a couple of hours it will then start.

Have checked and cleaned electrical connections, checked battery, replaced starter. It is the same type of results as if I were using a non RFID Chipped ignition key. Not sure what to do.

You could have a fuel delivery problem. Start by

  • checking fuel pressure. Fuel injected cars are very fuel pressure sensitive. Fuel pressure is very important and must be within specifications. However, if the pressure is low, it does not mean the pump is bad.
  • A plugged fuel filter, a pinched line, and low voltage at the pump can contribute to low fuel pressure. All three must be checked before replacing the pump.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much for the answer. Would this Fuel pressure issue be more likely to happen after the engine is hot and has been running. I have tried to start the Jeep with it set in Neutral...this also didn't make any difference. There has also been a suggestion online that I have found that said it could possibly be a Crankshaft Position Sensor problem. Would the fuel issue actually be a problem.??? The car will only light up all of the electrical sensors on the dash...but will not even crank the starter at all."

Intermittent starting


Yes. When was the last time you had the starter changed? Has anyone crawled under the vehicle to check for a loose starter? If the starter does not engage it may be the starter solenoid ( the thing that drives the gears into contact before the starter actually turns ). This might not be ramming the gears together properly and that will cause the grinding noise, as well as an intermittent start.

2002 jeep liberty has an intermittent starting problem. The starter makes a grinding noise usually when started and has for a while. could these two be related?


the starter grinds because the bushings at each end are worn .or if the engine has been removed and replaced,, the person didnt replace the spacers from the starter and bell housing which keeps the starter gears from going too deep into the fly wheel makeing a grinding sound. the intermittent starting problem could just be the check valve on your fuel system bleeding back . need more info.

My jeep started whining yesterday whenI used my automatic start. after a couple of minutes it went away. today the same thing happened but it lasted the entire time I used the car (about 2 hours) sounded...


A noise like that is somewhat serious...It could be from low power steering fluid, low transmission fluid or even the starter remaining engaged. You need to find the source of the noise right away to avoid major damage!!!

Jeep liberty starter sticking in cold weather


Generally I have seen this happen when water gets into the starter and freezes overnight. When you first try to start it, the starter won't work correctly but heat generated while it's stuck will quickly melt the ice and then it works. Only way I know of to eliminate it is to remove the starter and use grease on all the moving parts that connect the solenoid to the starter Bendix drive. Not sure why, but it seems to happen on some starters but not all, even on identical vehicles. I have corrected the problem on many customers cars by greasing but have left mine alone and actually never had a problem other than the initial "being stuck" in the AM. If your starter is very old, you could replace it but that is up to you.

While trying to start my 2002 jeep liberty limited edition 2wd 3.7l engine I only get a click, after any number of clicks it finally starts.


It sounds like you need a new battery. If it's a 2002, then it's probably on it's second battery already and due for a new one. The clicking is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter with the flywheel. If the battery can't supply enough "cold cranking amps" or "power", then it makes that clicking noise.

Starting issues


ASE mechanic.
A couple of different scenerios. first could be the ignition switch not suppling voltage to the starter. You might have good battery voltage at the starter,but not the trigger voltage from the ignition. thats the small wire on the starter. OR if i cranks a couple of times and then starts it might be a crank sensor for those engines are known for that sensor problem. keep me posted
