Any help at all
Sounds to me like something happened in your engine computer. Then it went into limp mode thats why you didnt have any power.
Sometimes a wire a-top the rear differential will get shorted out and cause alot of crazy things. The sensor on the diff tells the computer your speed and how far you have went. Might look into that.
fuel filter goin out ....
It definatley sounds like computer or wire issues. Clogged fuel filter will still let you get some sort of fuel but not much.
sounds like it could be a wheel speed sensor I had a similar issue that you are describing and I took it to the jeep dealership. Dealership service diagnosed the issue for 50 ordered the part 18 and tried to get me for 100 to replace it. I just got the part and put it on myself -- 10 minutes of work. Just required a 10mm socket and a floor jack.
ok so i did go to the dealership and after 100 of diagnostics fees the report is the following replace rear wheel speed sensor as well as front wheel speed sensor because the wiring on the front on has been rubbed through (hence the grinding noise when i hit the brakes). so cctrudel yes it was wheel speed sensor related. now what do i do im no mechanic and dont want to spend 3-400 on labor which is
parts ordered- thru moparwholesale. 63 incl. shipping

Because I didnt want a car based SUV she actually wanted an Element but they are dog ugly. And quite frankly I find myself wanting a Wrangler. Tired of stupid highschool kids revving their engine at me at stoplights. when those stupid high school kids run off the road you can charge them up the a to tow them out. I noticed that too being a high school teacher....teenagers dont think much of libertys...wonder
Way to hi-jack a thread guys Ha ha ha I enjoyed reading it I have Audi TT pedals in my other car they are brushed aluminum with rubber so your feet never touch the metal just the rubber which has a great grip or they wouldnt make any sense in a sports car. I was hoping for something similar for the liberty - I didnt have anything like that in the Wrangler but I think I did find something that will work and will not look ricey. I used own a Civic too dang good car never had a worry with it.
Well the stering wheel can be moved up and down. Depending on the seats that can be moved up. down and titled. If she feels she can not reach the pdeals it is time for pedal extenions. httpwww.pedalextenders.com Yes I what I just posted might be a bit extream For less extream maybe pedal pads would be better httpwww.amazon.combieUTF8&node15736591 Please do not take offence to what I posted it is 2 ways to help..
ROFL well she isnt THAT short Yah weve tried the steering wheel tilt as well as the power seats I found some pedal pads that are made for a liberty. Was just wondering if anyone had put them on and if they really made a difference or not before buying them. No offense at all I am sure it seemed like a dumb question but in the midst of her wanting to trade it in for that reason alone I was willing to throw it out there Thanks
I am not an expert but I doubt there is an easy was to adjust the brake pedal height. You can try looking in the Factory Service Manual available online somewhere for the 2003 (it should be similar. Probably the only way to change the height is to cut it and reweld it. You would likely have a hard time finding someone to do it due to liability issues. Sorry to be so negative but I think you may be stuck with it. Hopefully someone here will prove me wrong. Bruce

Looks like I got my own answer....need to get the brakes checked to make sure everything is ok and the that pads are not damaging the rotors.
Just found a free coupon from Pep Boys to have the brakes inspected for Freeeeeeee.....thats what I will do
we had that once. the anti-vibration pad on the back of one of the brake pads moved and would touch the rotor. upgraded to ceramic and was amazed at the difference
I have a 2002 5 speed manual 2.5 L CRD as sold here at the time in South Africa. I also had the squeaky clutch pedal from new which the agents could not fix untill they replaced the complete hydrolic (sp) assembly which cured the problem. The Master and Slave assembly come joined together with a length of tubing and the fluid is sealed inside under pressure if you open the re-fill cap ignoring the
Rear lower control arms shot
You can buy new bushings for the lower control arms (get quality ones though - lots of cheap crap out there) and have a local tire shop press them in. Taking the arms off is very straightforward - remember to torque the bolts to 120 ftlbs when the jeep is ON THE GROUND. Youll pay about 80 for all 4 bushings and maybe 50 to have the bushings pressed into the control arms. Unfortunately for you and me (I have an 03 also) we dont qualify for the rear LCA recall. The recall starts with the 04s Bob
