Jeep Liberty CRD timing belt life
I'm new to this list. I have a 05 Liberty CRD with 110K miles. I am curious about life expectancy of the timing belt and the frequency of failures that destroy the engine. Is this an interference engine with valves hitting pistons with belt failure? Any advice or info is greatly appreciated.
I only heard of two timing belt failures one at 117,000 miles and the other at 135,000 miles with engine repair costs of approx. $3500.00 to $5500.00.
All water in radiator went into the engine...this should be interesting.
I just read your thread on your CRD timing belt. I have a 06 CRD and it has just turned 100K. I too am a bit uncertain about changing the timing belt at 100K and I will probably gamble and wait a while longer. I wanted to ask if you found out any additional info on why the engine coolant found it's way out of the water jacket and into the combustion chamber. Please let me know if you have the answer.
Thanks for your time and have a great Holiday,

Now that Daimler has used us pioneer to test the Liberty CRD maybe they will bring it back with all the improvements.
Still getting 31 mpg after more than 100K.
