Customer Question
I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 ...it has lost all power it will start and idle but won't go past 1000 rpms in gear..

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistant

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Liberty yourself? What have you tried so far?

It will rev some in neutral when its cold ..but when you put it in gear it will barely pull itself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I took the plugs out and they were black..none of them were firing right

This usually means the catalytic converter is clogged. Completely remove front oxygen sensor to relieve exhaust pressure, if that brings power back this verifies the converter is clogged. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
