Crankshaft Position Sensor problems of the 2003 Jeep Liberty



Two problems related to crankshaft position sensor have been reported for the 2003 Jeep Liberty.

car   Crankshaft Position Sensor problem 1
Failure Date: 06/05/2010

Our vehicle began stalling out while driving on a main road. We pulled over and the vehicle would not start. When attempting to start it again white smoke began coming out. I called a tow truck to get us home. It was sitting in the main road and I had my children with me. The malfunction indicator light came on. The car started up again. We took it to autozone and the crank sensor showed up. I bought a crank sensor and took it to fuccillos in adams NY. They replaced it and said that the crank sensor was seized into the engine. When it was done I picked it up but the same issues began. They did a diagnostic which showed another faulty crank sensor, a cam sensor and there was gas in our oil. Then I was told 3 ignition coils were melted. Then I was told another coil was bad. Chrysler said that when there is an issue with your crank or cam that the coils will remain hot even when the car is off. Looking on line, many people have the same issues-some have the same issues over and over again. I called to ask if there was a recall but was told not of yet.

car   Crankshaft Position Sensor problem 2
Failure Date: 09/19/2005

On September 19, 2005 smelled gas when the vehicle stalled, but it did turn over. The vehicle had been sitting for two days . Consumer got back into vehicle and smelled gas again, however, consumer drove the vehicle, and then parked it for about an hour and that was when the air pressure cover blew out and the air filter was held down with metal clamps. It cut the installation in the hood of the car. Had it towed to a local mechanic. They replaced the air filter, two crank sensor cams, six spark plugs, one map sensor, one injector, and air box and six ignition coils. Consumer contacted the manufacturer, and they said that the consumer should have taken the vehicle taken it to a local dealer, and they will not reimburse the consumer. The service engine light was on and rmps were going up and down.
