Customer Question
Hi Brad....

Hi Brad. I have 2005 2.8 liter jeep liberty diesel. 177000miles. runs great. Cold heat. The only time needle on temp gage moves is on the hottest day in summer with ac on. I suspect thermostat stuck open. what do you think

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you noticed any leaking?

No leakage

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Liberty?

2005 2.8 vm motori diesel

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

Nothing. research before I take it in shop

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

The vehicle has never ever ran hot. The heat has been marginal. The fan clutch was replaced a few years ago. The fan was would not move froze . motor ran cool.
