2002 jeep liberty motor-2.4 chain driven component below crankshaft need to find if position matters and how to time


no photos. so help will limited .
all cam timing matters.
"not sure what does", the cam, crank, sprocket or pin?
The 2.4L inline 4 engine, is a throw back old Dodge Neons
DOHC engine ,a twin cam head.
2002 is first year, Liberty in USA>
is this the 2.4L turbo engine, EDZ engine.??
KJ jeep it is.
be nice to say what job your working? HOw'd you get here?
if you buy the service manual from jeep
chapter 9s, covers this 2.4 total engine, in one chapter.
but this engine cams are Belt drive. NOT CHAIN.
first post that it really is, this engine? or the VIN, or photos.

so you must be confused on that is there.
the other engine, the 3.7L is a V6 engine vastly different than the 4 banger.
it has chains.
covered in chapter 9- page 71 +
this v6 has a counterbalancer too.
i recommend reading the FSM book on this engine , after counting cylinder, 4 or 6? and reading chapters 9 or 9s.

see KJ 2002 here
RTM read the manual
seen here

Is there ANY other engine that will fit in a 2002 jeep liberty limited? 3.7L v6... need a whole new engine


3.7L EKG Powertec, engine. SOHC with roller followers,
did you check compression, or just P030x codes???????
and what if its just a stuck valve or collapsed lifter
why not ask for help in diagnosis?
compression bad? on one or more? cylinders, post #
pull the Valve covers, see if there are broken valve springs
or bad cam lobes, or lifter bad? (motion)
if it didnt burn oil , try rebuilt heads.?

ran for 12 years, so what is the mileage>? 300k?
Oil changes, at 5000 ?

the 3.7 may fit...says wiki.
warning, some engine blocks may NOT be same. (filter mounts, engine mounts) check first.
but you can find this at any engine builders web site. (google them)
ive swapped many and engine, even wrong engines.?grin
there are always choices, i always have and had spare cars.
so down time is never an issue for me.
but others yes. (rent a car is one option while fixing another)
1: if the block is bad get a short block.
2: if the heads are bad get yours rebuilt , or exchanged.
3: if you blew the engine to total destruction, pistons hit valves? (rare)
then get a used engine, or buy a rebuilt.
or pull yours and take it to any top machine shop and drop it off.
bingo, fixed and cheap too. no middle man, to rip you.

history.
The 3.7 liter PowerTech V-6 engine is, essentially, the 4.7 V-8 with two fewer cylinders.
then later, morphed to the Pentastar V6. (today's motor)
cast iron block, (lasts long time, easy to bore and rebuild)
no rubberband cam belts, real chain, drive.
2 valves per cyl. making head rebuilds fast and cheaper.
forged pistons, not cheap cast.
MOPAR is not POS.
ask engineer Brian Crothers

I run the 3.8L in my 08 JK.
its a real low tech, push rod motor. (ended in 2011)

id fix mine, if it failed
my guess is it is head failure, , so get the newer
rebuilds with pinned, valve guides and run it.

When taking off of stopping the 2005 jeep liberty 4x4 diesel kicks (jerks) badly...I got a computer thing that told me it was a p0700 error, trans control system malfunction....is this something that is...


it could be, sounds like the tourk converter lock up clutch is not releasing, bad converter, or lockup solenoid,relay or wireing, wireing could be shorted.
Good Luck

2002 Jeep Liberty


I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty and after driving for about 30 minutes the air conditioner would start to blow hot air. The air conditioner clutch was sticking. I could hit the clutch and it would kick in and start to work. I went to Advance Auto and purchased a big spray can of electric motor cleaner and a big spray can of WD-40. I soaked the clutch with the electric motor cleaner, used the whole can, then soaked it with half a can of WD-40. The clutch has worked perfecty ever since.
