A small leak from loose charcoal in the charcoal canister (part of the Evaporative Emissions System) may cause Check Engine Light illumination.

Verified for the Jeep Wrangler

A Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a "Cylinder #3 Misfire." This normally occurs in hot weather after the vehicle has been driven, parked for ten to twenty minutes, and then restarted. Heat from the exhaust vaporizes fuel inside the #3 fuel injector and causes the misfire. Installing an insulator sleeve normally lowers the temperature enough so the fuel will not vaporize.

If the downstream (rear) oxygen sensor wiring harness contacts the propeller (drive) shaft, it can damage the oxygen sensor and the wiring harness for the sensor, and/or cause Check Engine Light illumination. The wiring harness should be repaired and secured away from propeller shaft.

As a Jeep Liberty owner with a sky slider, I have also having ongoing issues with the slider breaking, not closing, or opening, and being given the run around by Jeep Corp. Now, like many who have posted here, and other forums, I am now the owner of a Jeep Liberty that has a giant hole in the roof because the top does not close. I am informed by Jeep the cost is upwards of $2800. I am the first, and only owner and have kept it in pristine cond...

As like many others, both rear exhaust manifold studs sheared off. Ticking and popping sound when you start it, slowly subsides when warmed up. My neighbors enjoy the sound of my old Farmall tractor each morning before work reminding them not to buy a Jeep. So, you need to be half monkey, one quarter snake and one quarter contortionist to reach these bolts. Expensive fix that our friends at Chrysler continue not to acknowledge that there is a ...

when i top up the fuel tank gas splashes on my hand, feet and the pavement. the dealership said this is due to a faulty check valve in the gas tank and that this would cost approx. $1350 to replace the tank as the check valve cannot be removed from the tank. because i thought it was a problem with the gas pumps at the fuel stations i did nothing about it until i read about this type of problem on the internet. i had hoped there was a recall ...

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.

Reported by Jeepr and 1 other for the Jeep Commander

There is a heat shield above the muffler to dampen the amount of heat transferred into the passenger side area through the floorboards. This heat sheild is composed of aluminum sheet and heat dissipative material. It is adhered to the floorboard pan via inexpensive nuts that look like they were made from stamped sheet metal. I think there was also some kind of adhesive compund, but that had dried up and is not doing its job anymore. On my jeep...

Many reports say that the plastic is breaking and cracking at the door handles of the Jeep Commanders. I have had mine replaced at the cost of $1200 for two of the them. The cause is the spring that activates the door latch when you pull on the handle. If you pull the handle and let it slap back into position, there is a part of the actual handle that will hit the plastic. The spring attached to the handle has a lot of strength and it will ove...
