2009 Liberty revs on start-up, temp gauge stays at C. Engine light came on.


Asked by Sep 29, 2016 at 10:14 AM about the 2009 Jeep Liberty Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Over the last week, intermittently, when starting the car in 70 degree weather,
the engine sounds extremely loud, as though it is revving, but the RPM
remains 0. temperature gauge remains at "C" and does not creep up to normal
until the engine stops making the loud revving sound. Now, the Engine light
came on and is staying on. Could  these be related and what's causing it?
