2003 Jeep Liberty Repair Question
What would cause a loss of power and flashing chcek engine light
I would say seperate have you had the exhaust checked for excessive back pressure?
No I haven't. Is this something we can do ourselves? Could it be a head gasket?
The bad engine miss fire and only being able to go 40 with a big loss of power?Makes me think plugged cat.Its best to take it to a exhaust shop to have the back pressure done or you will have to buy a back.pressure tester and learn how to use it.
Would it be OK to drive to the shop? Any ideas what I'm looking at as far as costs go? I'm relieved to know u don't think its a head gasket
How does it run now?It doesnt blow out white smoke out the tail pipe while running does it?As far as cost it all depends if it is a plugged cat an how much they cost.
No white smoke but once it warms up the engine kinda stalls feels like its going to die at any second. But it runs OK when it first starts.
Alright so it acts up when hot?usually when the cat gets clogged thats usually what happens.I would have the back pressure checked.Also when its acting up do you ever have to let up on the gas for it to shift up to the next higher gear.
yes we have to let up on the gas to get it to shift gears. Would there be engine codes for the CAT showing?
A plugged cat usually doesn't set codes sometimes it triggers missfire codes.
