You should service your brakes, sounds like they are sticking over night , are they disc or drum? Do you use your emergency cable? More than likely a service will work to free all parts up if you do use your emergency possible the cables are getting sticky too

Jeep Liberty 4WD Problem

its fall. and 100s of posts every year on this, and nobody can read the manual.
nor can i guess if you bought Command Trac or select track
nor if driving on ICE or dirt.
you have command track, and must never be driving on ice free pavement, same as ww2 jeep that or CJs

this is called wind up, read the operators guide,
it tells you never to do that... in the guide,
there is no center differential in your car. zero.
so one tire must be on ice or dirt (sand/grass, gravel or ice)
see why

if you ignore this damage can happen see some now.
posted 100 times this.
you bought the wrong jeep, it seems. to me.....

called WINDED up. and puts huge forces on that poor chain,

stop and RTM.
as you turn the car, the tires roll at different speeds, so do the front and rear axles.
this force is huge.
and the driveline can not handle that.
on the SELECT trac, (not 4Low) there is a clutch
that slips or a real center differential.
but not on your car.

the first symptoms are bucking and jerking in turns
and noise (all bad) and gear lever sticks.
when fully wound up the gear dogs JAM hard.
i have a jeep TSB
that states
ok you wound it up.
jack up one tire. and shift back to 2H.
(yes, the least damaging way to correct this)
and damage on gear boxes is accumulative.

the false illusion is driving straight, in 4H
and its seems ok, (sure all 4 tires turning same speed sure...)
but not in turns.
but you tell me how you can drive all day going
straight. and what is the point of that>??>

google how to use part time 4wheel drive.
learn how it works and how not.

I have a 2006 Scion XA. Few days ago noticed revving sounds while driving the car. Originally thought engine was revving but noticed RPM gauge is normal. The humming/revving sound starts about 20 mins...

under the bonnet on the radiator is an automatic fan, now if the radiator is low or you need to replace the coolant in it or top it up but the car may need a service and let them know the problem.

Over hearting

Hi Fooch!

Does the Jeep have electric radiator fans, or is it a conventional engine pulley mounted fan?

Your description sounds like fan failure, wherein the engine overheats when stopped or moving very slowly, due to not enough air being moved through the radiator to cool it down.

This can be confirmed by sitting stopped until the temperature goes up and then driving at normal road speed... if the temp comes back down, this is the problem.

With electric fans, this can likely be caused by a bad fan temp sensor, bad fan motor, bad fan relay, or by a wiring problem...among other possible causes.

With a mechanically driven fan, this can be caused by a bad fan viscuous clutch, missing fan shroud, or possibly loose belts.

A bug/debris clogged radiator will exacerbate the problem, whichever type fan you have, so a trip to the self-serve carwash to clean the radiator is not a bad idea, either.

Hopefully this will help and get Mom off your **** for breaking her car. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, and GOOD LUCK!!!
