2008 Jeep Liberty Recalls
The 4 wheel drive transfer case is protected from the hot exhaust system by a heat shield. This shield can come loose and rub on the drive shaft. Over time, this rubbing could weaken and potentially cause the drive shaft to break, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will add a support bracket to the heat shield to correct this concern.
Chrysler is recalling 2008 Jeep Liberty models because the windshield wiper motors may contain excess adhesive that could allow for water intrusion. This may result in intermittent and eventually inoperative windshield wiper operation, which reduces the driver's visibility and increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor free of charge.
The parking brake lever clutch drum may not secure the vehicle when the parking brake is thought to be engaged. This may allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will replace the park brake lever assembly. The Chrysler recall number is H28. This recall began on October 27, 2008.

I posted this video to find out what the problem was and to assist others that are having the same problem. puerrodurango1001 who posted below is correct. Evidently the dealer mechanic was not aware of the proper diagnosis and it didn't help that it never developed while at the dealership. Cudos to you purodurango1001!!!!! The "Tip Start" is what was happening and the fuel pump was the culprit!...
