Check the coolant level. check thermostat for correct operation. Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks . All indications are that the motor is overheating badly.

Lost power smoke exhaust


If it is a 6 cylinder inline then catalyst is plugging up a easy test would be to remove a oxygen sensor and see if power returns to normal. V-8 models have 2 types of manifolds plastic and metal the metal ones have a plate bolted to the bottom which the gasket splits and sucks in engine oil causing all sorts of drive ability issues the plastic versions more trouble free but PCV ventilation system can cause smoking

When starting from cold, white smoke not firing on all cylinders for about 10 seconds then run fine


White smoke usually means coolant is in the combustion chamber. It takes your Jeep about 10 seconds to burn it through. Probably have a bad head gasket or intake gasket. Have a Mechanic check it out.
