2004 Jeep Liberty Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2004 Jeep Liberty

The power window motor commonly fails in the front and rear doors. This may require replacement of the complete window regulator assembly which will include the window motor.

An engine misfire at idle (rough idle), accompanied by illumination or flashing of the Check Engine Light, could indicate a problem with one or more of the intake valves. Revised intake valves & valve locks are available to address this concern.

Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Low fluid level in the differential or transfer case can result in bearing failure. Damaged bearings commonly cause a whine or growl type noise.

110K miles. Electric and mechanical Fan both turn on as the temperature increases, replaced Thermostat, water pump, and cap to the overflow reservoir. Still over heating

Driver, front passenger, two back passenger windows regulators keep breaking. I bought this jeep in 2011. I have already had to replace every regulator and am on a second round of them breaking and being replaced.

It has been determined the fuel tank in these vehicles is at risk of leakage during a rear end collision. To correct this concern dealers will inspect the rear of the vehicle and perform one of the following: A Chrysler designed tow hitch will be installed on vehicles not equipped with a tow hitch, provided the condition of the vehicles can support support proper installation. The tow hitch on vehicles already equipped will be inspected and replaced and/or repaired as necessary, again provided the vehicle is sound and can support proper instillation.

Certain vehicles sold in, or currently registered in, states where road salt is commonly used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because the rear suspension lower control arm may fracture due to excessive corrosion. A fracture of the rear lower control arm may result in a loss of vehicle control, which can lead to a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the rear lower control arms on all affected vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration (NHTSA) defined "Salt Belt" states. The Chrysler recall number is L27.

ON CERTAIN TRUCKS, THE CONSTANT TENSION FRONT LOWER BALL JOINTS MAY EXPERIENCE CONTAMINATION. IF THE VEHICLE IS OPERATED FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD WITH THIS CONDITION, THE BALL JOINT MAY EVENTUALLY EXPERIENCE WEAR AND LOOSENESS.

Great car all around. A few wrinkles, though. Over 100K, the valve covers tend to leak a bit meaning burned oil smell sucked in through heating into cabin. Look especially at the right rear most gasket for a leak. My Lib ended up with seat-belt/airbag fault codes from my seat belts which needed replacing. That's a first for me in any car. Airconditioner is great but heater core tends to clog an...

Look, 2004, 3.7L, 120K miles, hwy, streets, off-road, fantastic vehicle! One noisy lifter at startup but Lucas cured that. Othewise, radio repair once (don't recommend replacement), and starter once (tricky to remove). No tunups, same mileage (20mpg). Trick is 1) reg. oil chg - synthetic - and occasional additive, 2) keep up brakes, 3) bosch platinum plugs (75K so far), 4) Get the highest c...
