The SM covers this.
chapter 21, page 39, 42RLE

Control of the transmission is accomplished by
fully adaptive electronics. Optimum shift scheduling
is accomplished through continuous real-time sensor
feedback information provided to the Transmission
Control Module (TCM) portion of the Powertrain
Control Module (PCM).

there is no TCM box, all by itself.
do not play with the PCM. leave it alone, and win
yes take measurements and scan it.
did scan it first. seems not.
if you did and there are codes, DTC, the report them.

you must scan it first. after checking fuses.

    the exception is if car is in Europe
    with diesel and has its own special trans
    and its very own, special sep. TCM
    But most liberties there are called cherokees. so i guess you are in USA>

    if in usa.
    log in to Mitchell DIY,
    read the book it there.
    end yet another useless, easter egg hunt.
    or next time why not read the parts list on your USA car.
    seen here
    costs NOTHING
    posted over 500 times now.
    learn to look for parts here
    omg there is no TCM. (not in a box)
    but is there, none the less.
    its now in the PCM.

    why not post symptoms first
    and not play the easter egg game.
    The TCM is not bad,
    99.9% of the time.
    so..... leave it alone or risk making it bad.
    a fact.

    here are some pointers on a/t box.
    1: check levels 1st,
    2: then check fuses, (we test them)
    3 then scan it, next the PCM will tell you all errors from TCM brain section.
    it will. do so. now.
    or its all just guessing and kids games.

    you scan it or they do ,
    pick one.

    if you like finding parts all day
    the USA car sparts are all there.
    just answer the questions on the right.

  • Anonymous Jan 02, 2017

    all the parts are there, all 4000+
    and there locations clearly shown
    if you try to find TCM it will fail
    it not there, (unless in say Europe)
    most cars moved the TCM to the ECU
    and renamed it to PCM for that fact.
    they did that to save a fortune on computers
    not needed and because modern cars the ECU is not fast enough to do but, at same time.
    speed, pure and raw.

    Id say your box is 42RLE
    if you looked at the service manual
    its there in all chapter on that box.
    and the schematic shows the wires going to the PCM to trans solenoids.
    proof, of , NO TCM BOX now.
    now, i covered this all ways.

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Liberty Renegade started car this

have you checked the oil it may be low on oil or you may have a bad cps(cam posistion sensor) so it is not exactly firing correctly you can go to auto zone and they will check the codes for free even if you dont see the check engine light on there will always be some type of codes stored. even codes that say no codes found. this will atleast give you a starting point.

SOURCE: where is the fuel filter

This year and model does not have a stand alone in-line filter, the filter is on the suction side of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank and under normal conditions is only replaced when the pump is replaced (comes with the new pump). This true of all late meodel Chyrsler Products.

How to check thermostat on a 2012 jeep liberty 3.7L V6 engine?

Hello Ron Roney,

Pretty simple...

The thermostat is about $10 to $15 USD
2012 JEEP LIBERTY 3 7L V6 Thermostat Housing Water Outlet RockAuto

If you are seriously INTERESTED in ONLY TESTING a
thermostat... MY BEST RECOMMENDATION... Buy
a new one (preferably a OEM Stock one you can
use (when your are done playing))...

Boil a pot of water... remove from heat...

DROP IN the NEW thermostat...

By the time (if you are fast) ... you see it open the water
Will be just ABOVE 195 degrees Fahrenheit...
It should immediately open...

Drop in ONE or TWO ice-cubes per cup
of water should be enough to cause the
water to drop BELOW 180 Degrees Fahrenheit
the THERMOSTAT to close.


This way you avoid greasy fingers, anti-seize
gasket and LIKELY HOUSING costs...

I need to locate the inlet heater hose on a 2006 Jeep GC 3.7L V6. both hoses seem to go to the same place.

Yes they do appear to go to the same place but it isn't. Water comes out of the engine from one hose and returns to the engine on the other.
Attached link shows how to flush a heater core on a jeep. It doesn't really identify which hose is which but I would guess the the smaller hose comes from the engine and larger one returns it to the engine.
Because the water from the engine is under pressure and the return is under less pressure and larger to allow full flow.

The second link shows the thermostat housing that the other ends of the hoses connect to.
