Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that we are trying to replace the starter on and can’t seem to find where it is

Mechanic's Assistant: When you turn the key, do you get a single loud click, or a series of rapid ones?

Loud click

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

Yes we are. Tested battery. Tried to jump battery to no avail.

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

It’s a 2006 3.7 L with a V6

Can you double check the engine size? I am only showing the 4.7 or the 4.0 engine for this model and year.

Thank you.

Where do I find that information. The guy I bought the starter off of said that the vin number told me how to figure out what it was
Jeep Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 2 months ago

Should be on the label under the hood on the core support

If not I could use the 8th digit of the vin to find out what you have under there.

the label says 3.7. It’s on the emission control sticker
Jeep Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 2 months ago

Is it possible this is a liberty?

I just don't have a listing for the 3.7 is all and I know they used that in the liberty
