Question about Jeep Liberty
When was the last time that it had a coolant flush...as although the level is fine, the reasono that antiboil and antifreeze is used because it raises the boiling point and lowers the freezing point to assist in the heat-exchange process.....also, i would be looking at the thermostat and making sure it is opening properly...for example, when the engine is hot (after driving 10 mins or so) feel the top and bottom radiator hoses (engine off) and they should be the same (hot) temperature.....if they feel different, the thermostat is blocked and the only thing keeping the engine cool, is the cool air as you drive along...

Do you know for sure if the radiator fan comes on? It should be coming on for the a/c, and it should come on BEFORE the engine temp gauge begins to climb.
Also, do you have obstructions in front of the grill? I would think that you said no blockage to the air intake, but also I could think if you have a winch. Is there any chance you have mud/debris in the radiator fins?
Bugs would be in the a/c condenser. Have you looked at the engine radiator behind the condenser? It's kind of hard to see. You may have to remove the plastic cover.
Make sure the fan goes from low to high speed; when the jeep starts to get warmer the fan should go from the normal low speed up to high (you usually will know it because it really is humming out there on high). It may just be hot enough that low speed can't handle the heat load of the air-cond and the engine in traffic.
The air cond gets the air before the radiator so if the fan is coming on low it will keep the condenser cool enough to have decent A/C performance... the dealer should also be able to test low / hi radiator fan operation.
Tell us news, hope helps.
