Question about 2003 Jeep Liberty
Sometimes you can see steam/smoke coming from under the hood
Put in a radiator flush .as it may be a blocked core .due to dirt or rust. then run the engine till water is hot.then drain it. refill with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze then heating on full to bleed the air out. you bleed the air out of the top of your expansion bottle then fit your cap.

If your engine is burning the oil (either through a valve seal or worn
piston rings) then you wont see a visible leak, it will just burn it
through the pipe and you will see a blue smoke from the tail pipe.
have someone rev the engine while you watch the tail pipe, when they mash the throttle, do you see blueish smoke? How often do you change your oil? look under the car, is there a coat of oil sludge along the bottom of the engine?
Check for leak. Do compressor test if you can; what oil and weight do you currently use. I dont know about that model have PCV or not but it sound like it need to be change. Valve steam seal ?

Let it cool down, then add water to the radiator, not the recovery bottle. Re-start it and check for leaks. If while checking, it overheats, replace the thermostat and do it again. Replace any leaking items.
If you badly overheated it you may have damaged the engine. If it won't start or makes a lot of noise or, you see lots of white smoke from the exhaust then you have a large problem. (time for a shop)
If everything is OK, then remove the lower hose at the radiator and re-attach it, then refill the system with the appropriate amount of antifreeze (small inexpensive hydrometers are available at most parts houses. You want a 50/50 mix.) Always run the heater on high heat to avoid having air trapped in the system while re-filling.

SOURCE: smokes from under hood
First you have to identify the source of the leak. Check the valve cover gaskets if leaking excessively they can leak on to the exhaust where the oil would burn and cause it to smoke and smell. It can also coat the O2 sensor and cause the check engine light to come on.
