My vehicle is a Jeep Liberty Renegade 4X4, 4 cylinder. Noticed leak on pavement under front. Took to mechanic to check & he said small leak differential. Then check engine light came on. Took it to different mechanic and the computer said differential issue. He reset & I drove it couple days and light came on again. Am going to take it to a Jeep dealer but want as much info as I can get so I won't get ripped off as I'm a 62 yr single female on a tight budget. Know some about car mechanics and your articles & video helped me understand this issue. My Jeep has a 2" lift kit and a skid plate, with off road package & tow package. All factory except the lift kit. No extraordinary noises or issues with tranny. The "Part Time" dash indicator light has been on constantly for over a year but from what I have read that should not be causing this issue and that would require the Transfer Case Switch to be replaced if I understand correctly. What questions do I need to ask the service department and what do I need to look out for with regard to the differential issue. Also. My X taught me to use the all wheel drive when it rained for better traction but am now told never do that and only use that if off road or snow/ice. Is that true?
Thank you for such an informative web site. I will for sure keep this web address for future reference.
have the same problem?
