Most times that is caused by the throttle plate getting gummed up. On older carbureted vehicles the plate got cleaned off by the fuel passing by it. On injected cars, the plate stays dry because the fuel enters downstream of the air inlet. Just spray it out with carb cleaner and make sure that the plate is able to fully close and it should help. Also check for external vacuum leaks if clean out does not help.First startup after cleaning may be difficult but it will clear up. In cleaning you are essentially flooding the engine, but it won't damage anything..

Why would the sound of water flowing through a tube happen when we start to accelorate?

The sloshing noise may be caused from air in the cooling system.

If there's air in the system, it ends up in the heater core because it's the highest point in the cooling system. When you accelerate, the water pump spins faster pushing coolant into the heater core forcing the air out causing the sloshing noise.

To remove any air from the cooling system, get the engine up to operating temperature. With the engine idling loosen the upper radiator hose clamp. take a small flat bladed screwdriver and slip it between the upper radiator hose and the radiator hose neck. Allow the engine to idle until all that comes out from the radiator hose is coolant. Retighten the hose clamp.

2002 jeep liberty oil light on and off

Was the oil pressure checked under a load when the car was accelerating if idle oil pressure was good but lower when the vehicle was under a load it could indicate a partial blockage of the oil pump screen and a posting of the oil pressure numbers would be helpful if you are satisfied with the numbers and the test was done properly and the switch replaced you have a problem with the circuit

Heater only works while accelerating

this sounds like the coolant is low and should be checked.when you accelerate the coolant flows faster through the system.when at idle or driving slow the air will accumulate at the highest point which is usually the heater core thats why when in this state you get cool or luke warm air out the vents.

My 2003 Jeep Liberty heater is blowing cold air when idling. Warms up when you hit the accelerator. I also hear a water rolling sound upon take off after idling. Water pump? Heater Core?

Water level perhaps. When you hit the accelerator the water volume increases. Check your water level and make sure that your thermostat is opening and closing properly. Water level I'm thinking

'03 Jeep Liberty starts weakly and needs gas pedal to idle

Turning over is what the starter does to the engine can turn an engine over with no spark plugs in it...but you can't start it. Turning over is cranking .....the starter turns (cranks) the engine over (comes from when you had to put a crank in the front of the engine and crank it.)
Does it crank normally but has trouble starting???????

Heater core on a 2003 jeep liberty limited

sound like th efan is not working, not the heater, acceleration cause the air to move through the vent, so if the fan is not working, there is nothing to move the air, even the heater is working.

Heat only when accelerating

if your temperature of your vechicle flunctuate and doesnt stay in the middle then its the thermostat if the temperature stays in the middle you will need to flush out your heatercore
