JK Diesel Timing belt fail

These weekend, I went to pass new year's eve, with my parents, put all my womans on the jeep at 9:00 pm, and headed north, at 2:00 am, something goes wrong, and the engine suddenly stops going at 80 mi/h, without lights and 4 asking faces on the jeep, called highway service, they took the jeep to the next toll, where there was light enough to check, take out tree bolts to expose the timing belt (was my first impression), and voila few missing teeths from the timing belt. Tomorrow I'm going to get the car from the tow company and start to disassemble to check damage.

94.000 KM in case you ask, 100.000 KM timing belt maintenance

IMPORTANT UPDATE,

I bought the jeep used, and all indicate that Chrysler put their hands on the odometer, taking down the kilometers to the number I bought the jeep with.

Anybody with access to the Chrysler system to check what was odometer on his last recall applied? PLEASSSEEEEE

With these number I can open a case and ask for the replacement of the complete jeep!!

That is terrible. I had a CRD here in the States and did a timing belt job on it at 96,000 miles and the timing belt looked great. If it fails like yours did, it will wipe the engine out. They are interference style engines and when the timing belt goes, so does everything else. Sorry to hear about this.

Here in the states, a head and engine repair goes from $4,000 to $7,000 dollars. This is the reason that I traded my CRD for this gas JK... even though my CRD was running great at the time. The unknown scared me.

This is not about a part failing, these is about Chrysler practices, this vehicle was used as a rental vehicle for Chrysler and then they changed the odometer to sale the jeep

I own a liberty CRD and I change the timing belt at change time, I even made a howto for lostkjs.com, but as they changed the odometer I could'nt figure it was time for change.

I don't think Chrysler changed anything!? If something was changed it was when it was bought and sold by the rental company! I wish you luck also....this must really suck to say the least. I hope you can track this down and let us know how things are going. Make phone calls after phone calls and DON'T give up!

Sorry, I can't help. But I wish you the best!
