Hi, jeep liberty 2006...

Hi, jeep liberty 2006 started making clunking sounds for a few days, now won't go forward in drive but will go back in reverse.

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Honestly, I thought the oise was coming from the right front wheel, but I jacked up bother front wheels and they turn freely.

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

Noise went on for about two weeks, but got really bad just before failure.

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

I jacked up rear wheels in drive the wheels turn freely, even at 1200 rpm

Ok, thanks

That noise was a clue/warning that something was going wrong.

Here’s the sequence of events I follow:
Check fluid level and color. Make appropriate repairs.
Check shift solenoids with a scan tool in bidirectional mode if
applicable. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission and
this is the easiest way to check them.
Drop pan and inspect for excessive metal shavings inside
pan. Check valve body and clutches visually.
Hopefully you may not have to go this far, maybe you just
were a bit low on fluid.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

No, will try the suggestions. Already took cover off differential box and all looks good there. I should have known since it can be pushed forward in neutral ok.

The engine quit several times over the past two weeks, but would either restart on it's own while at highway speed or could be restarted in town after shifting transmission to neutral. Yesterday drov eto friend's house for breakfast with no problems. Drove home and shut down engine in garage to change out valve cover gasket. After job finished, tried to restart car to check for oil leaks but would not start. Finally noticed sentry key system light on. Noticed when key is turned on light comes on for about three seconds then turns off. Then a few seconds later it comes back on again and engine will not start. … read more
