Your oil pan didn't rust I would just like to point out that your oil pan can't just rust out. It is made of material that doesn't rust. So when you had a hole in your oil pan it more than likely hit a rock or curb or something that penetrated it. Perhaps the other driver of the vehicle. On the other hand, if your oil pan was replaced with something ...

Neither of those diagrams would work the way you want them to. In diagram one power never reaches the lights as up to pin 86 is grounded. In diagram two power reaches the lights, but pin 86 is never grounded so the coil never closes. Try this. 85 and 86 are dependent on how the reverse light circuit works. If the circuit is normally grounded this diagram ...

You can't do that either way you tried. You need power +86 from the reverse wire, and a suitable ground path +85 for the other side of the coil. You'll have to add wire and find bare metal or another ground wire somewhere. The coil provides a resistance, such that very little current flows through it. This is why the reverse lights didn't come on in the ...

tl dr; - Once the radiator is changed, it's probably going to clear up most of the issues. It could be several issues happening all at once, but let's focus on first things. You're car is most likely boiling over due to the leak in the radiator. The system is not building the pressure it normally would, so will boil sooner than what it would normally. The ...

The coils have a 3 wire connector. Power Ground and signal. Check the power and ground with a test light. The best thing to do is to use a spark tester and pull each coil one at a time. While this is a worst case scenario, i have seen a problem like this. The Jeep Liberty had snapped off the caps holding the camshaft in place, on one bank.

The heat should be there as soon as your engine gets warm, however long that takes. In an average car (is there such a think), I'd guessedamate that to be in the 3-5 minute range once the vehicle has started moving, or about 10 minutes if it's just idling (this also depends on how cold it is outside ... cold-cold, it'll take longer ... just chilly, not near ...

P0700 refers to a fault within the transmission control module; the module must report that the transmission is in "park" (or, perhaps, neutral) for the starter to operate. However, the error message disappears, which may indicate that the fault was present at some time in the past, but is not present now. I don't know enough about your car's system to ...

When ever an accident occurs, or damage outside of the scope of operation, it is crucial that you have someone qualified inspect the vehicle. Normal operation, maintenance, repair experience is not relative in this case as damage can cause too many variables. If the vehicle has been in an accident it should not be diagnosed as if the part has reached end-...

Great diagnostic work so far. We know that it's not: the plug the coil pack the wire between the pack and plug the ECM Something is interfering with the power levels between the ECM and the coil pack. I'd inspect the wiring harness and the wires themselves for any damage, or just replace them if the cost is low enough.

I'm 98% positive that the thottle in a Jeep Liberty is electronic, so probably the pedal isn't really connected to the throttle body. With this in mind, given your assestment on the behavior and the click your daughter heard, I would do the next: Check the pedals, check that the connections are properlly set. Clean the metal contacts with a mild acid(...

From interpreting the question and the comment I would recommend the following: Change both fuel and air filter. I don't exactly where the fuel filter should be in your vehicle. Normally it is near the tank, jack the vehicle up and follow the fuel line from the engine back to the tank. If changing the fuel-filter is problematic: Start by changing the air-...

Before tearing into the AC system I would cross all my t's and dot my I's. The fastest way to check a big chunk of the system is by using the clutch relay. Most relays (not all) can be opened and plugged back in. By pushing on the contacts with your finger the fuse and wiring is checked if the clutch comes on and off. If it does not come on then check the ...
