Liberty 4WD 4-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,100 miles
On the 2005 and 2006 diesel Jeep Liberty (4X4) the oil filtered is exposed to damage when off roading. Currently, there is no skid plate available for the oil filter. While off road a rock hit the oil filter and opened a hole which drained all oil and caused vehicle to turn off.
