Hello All,
Need your advise please. I have an 02 Jeep Liberty limited. I was driving and stopped in a store and when I tried to start to leave the car was struggling and making a sound like you stuck a piece of plastic in a fan. I added oil and checked the rest of the fluids and connections. I got it started and headed toward a shop by my house. It was loosing power and blowing thick black smoke out the back. It has never given me any trouble before. I have no warning lights on and the car was over heating. I made it to the shop and after about an hour of checking he said three out of six cylinders were working. He doesn't know why... Any thoughts??? Please help.
