Hey Guys I could really use your help.
I have been having an issue with my 2003 Jeep Liberty Renegade for about a year now. This issue has stumped 2 different repair shops and a jeep dealership. Maybe you guys have heard of this before and give me a little advice.
So the issue is this. The Jeep runs fine. Starts easily at the turn of the key. Perfect. Until the engine gets warm. If you drive about 4 or so miles and the engine gets warmed up, the next time you turn the engine completely off it will refuse to start for about half an hour.
It turns over just fine and cranks... and cranks... it just will not kick on. I am guessing it's either a heat or fuel line issue. If I leave the jeep sit for about 6 hours after driving it seems to be fine, but if I want to go somewhere immediately after its warms up, I have to wait half an hour. It's almost as if the jeep specifically waits half an hour after I first turn the key and it fails to start. It's amazingly frustrating.
I have replaced the fuel pump, the crankshaft sensor that was bad, and the fuel pump sensor and still have the issue.
Next I was going to try the spark plugs and wires and maybe even the coil packs to see if it does any good.
I have had the jeep at a couple of different good repair shops and even a jeep dealership shop and no one seemed to be able to chase down the issue.
I am sick to death of having to sit around and wait half an hour before I can go somewhere. I have been stranded like this about 10 times minimum. I am even considering a trade in, but I love my jeep. Please help!
