My truck was running find I stop at the store. When I came to start it it wouldn't start the battery is new ,but still tried to jump it and it still won't start all the lights in the dash board work, headlights, radio, windows all work.But the heat, defrost, air don't work. I thought I need a starter but I don't my mechanic can't figure it out he check all the fuse and it still won't start.

When I put it in reverse n turn the wheel to the left, the jeep makes a click sound. Also its been a little difficult to put it in park at times. I have to put it in 2nd gear then park. Its also an automatic.

Ppl who did brakes now want to do new struts saying that's the problem. I read-makes no sense. No pull to right, or sound, just smoke and rubber smell. Mileage about 110,000 basic maintenance only. May need struts but rides decently. What could be reasons for one smoking/rubber smelling tire 4 days post warrenty when brakes are applied at a higher rate of speed?

Black shiny kind of tacky spray just behind the fan. More on right side looking in than anywhere else. Not an oil spray as previously thought. Oil is full and looks fine. Engine has a different sound than normal - louder and not normal. No lights coming on, no abnormal readings on any gauges. Smells funny. AC stopped working yesterday but just figured it was getting older and was out of freon. Did not run it. Compressor still working just is not cooling. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.

Sounded funny when started. Drove short distance and popped hood and has oil spray from front right side as looking in. Has 140,000 miles on it and has been running great. No light come on and is not heating up. Smells funny though. Has been kept up with on oil changes and taken good care of. Just had #6 cylinder replaced about month or so ago.

the engine or doing the functions the ignition usually does. When inserting key , the key turns freely , makes no noise or does not catch like it should when starting the car. Battery is good and well connected.

clutch out of range which means what

i turn on heater , and seems to cool engine. Radiater fan doesn't seem to be coming on.Put dcv meter (while running)and get voltage reading. Put ohm meter on fan and get reading sometimes. WHAT's my next step??

Engine light flashing. Once car heats up light goes out and smoke stops .engine still has a skip.

I had the current codes wrong. The are not P0400 and P0401. The correct codes are P0440 and P0441

Help please!!!!!!
We have a 2004' Jeep Liberty 3.7, automatic, with 70,000 miles and it has a new problem with HUGE, GIANT, clouds of white smoke from tailpipe on cold start up. So much smoke the entire black Jeep disappears in it. As the Jeep runs, the smoke clears, but does not go away. There is no visible water in the oil, the ATF on the stick is clear and clean, the idle is smooth, but coolant level is dropping in the reservoir. The smoke is white, not gray, not blue, but it really does not have any anti-freeze odor; not a sweet burning smell etc. It is showing P0400 and P0401 codes which may or may not be related as those are evaporative codes, often associated with gas cap leakage etc.
Did all the lifters a few months ago after having the traditional rocker arms flying off of three of 6 cyl. At that time, it was throwing P0300 codes. I replaced the water pump at that time, new coolant, synthetic oil, and used Seafoam. Every valve slack adjuster, (lifter)was seized up and the engine quit running. No overheat has been known.
I have read this could be a cracked intake manifold, but in all the photos I have looked at, I cannot see any coolant passage ways in the manifold, so how could coolant be getting into a combustion chamber? I will pull the plugs this weekend for a visual inspection for water and/or rust.
Any chance this could be ATF from some kind of modulator valve? I cannot find an EGR valve on the engine, so thinking there isn't one.

I called a repair shop for an estimate on a header gasket replacement and they said they might have to flush the AC and refill it for this and I was wondering if they are going to need to do it or not. please and thank you.

Was driving down the road and lost all electrical power, pulled to shoulder and looked under hood and battery cable end was burned in two. Touched end to positive post and cable burned. I figure it's a dead short but can't find it.

I opened my sunroof a few days ago. it is about 4 inches open. When i went to close it, it would not close. There is no sound, so the motor is not working. However, the motor IS working is working to open it. I unplugged my battery to try resetting motor. we are expecting T storms in 1.5 days.

the # 306 code is going off and I my have to give it a tune up. I do not know.
