Jeep Liberty 2008 engine number

wow no engine stated,?
numbers (serial and rules) vary by your countries laws, we cant guess that here, bet the first ever to post country. shock me.....

why do you ask, ??? must we guess. that too?
some countries, have no engine number at all. (laws)

USA car. "? we do have them. but are only used for "parts buys"
we use, VIN on dash , Exclusively. here. see?
gas engine v6. (my guess., 3.7L )

go to jeep read your countries FSM, open the book and read.
the FSM. on the 3 page of the ENGINE chapter.
just after engine index page is that, on mostly all cars made.
but you dont have the book right?
FSM=-means the official Jeep, factory service manuals. all.

but, in 2008 i see this, in wiki
The iron-block, aluminum-head V6 was the only engine available for 2008.
but witch V6? mines a 3.8L 2008 wrangler,

3.7 EKG exact name for parts

many engines from 2001 to now have no such number.(world wide not here)

i dont have the 3.7L FSM.
net rumor says

service manual says its on the right side of the block near the front
(4.7L yes, for sure,too)

must be on block not the head, (heads move about easy)

here is 1 example of a customer (smart) not look up his market code first, (OMG its a JEEP EXPORT) (a non usa car, made in USA)
and some have no serial at all
and some are in funny places not used in USA>
some countries have specific laws governing , if engine must have a serial and where it must go, making finding it very hard.
but if you look at the whole block, and its not there, then
its not there.

top rear
both sides, look for a flat machined area, (flat) and stamps.
do not read casting marks, none of that is a serial ever.
it will look EMBOSSED stamped, because it was.

2008 Jeep Commander running fine then slows. Then its won't shift or move over 30 mph. Engine light comes on. Code says chip in transmission needs replaced. Need a good & honest Transmission Shop

there is no chip in the trans. sorry.
check fuses.
then this time scan it and write down the DTCs errors numbers.
and post those, we cant guess these critical facts.

find any ASE shop, and get it checked.
they dont need to cheat you,there work load is near infinite.
no reasons at all.

no over 30mph, did the transmission up shift.?
is it stuck in 1gear. surely you can count the gears shifted?
if not , get a real mech.
if the transmission file the FSM stall test. then this it.
1: tranny RPM goes too high RPM (engine RPM) this is transmission slip.
2: RPM in drive, 1,2, or R, is too low below 1500rpm. STALLED.
this is weak engine. not trans.

google stall test transmission. and read.
or read the FSM
or read same on

2008 Jeep Commander with 5.8l Hemi problems with instrument panel

Have shop run an OHM test on your transmission sensors -- then have them replaced and rerun the OHM test. -- it's more than likely an input speed sensor that is not working properly and telling the jeep to go into "limp mode" hence your speed isn't changing but it can't read the actual speed.

Check engime light comes on and off

If you hear any ticking or knocking inside the engine do not drive it. You could change the oil pressure sending unit if there's no noise, most times that will fix the problem. It is advisable to put an external mechanical pressure gauge on there, either temporary or permanent...then, you can read the actual pressure...
I prefer gauges to lights because most time lights (either temp or oil) tell you "you have just blown your engine", instead of warning you when a problem is just beginning.

Location of oil dipstick

The oil dipstick is located at the back of the engine.  If you look at the engine from a top view it is located at about 11 o'clock.  It's black.
