There is either A).an oil leak or B). the smoke is from residue oil spilled on exhaust and such during the repair. Crank the engine and look everywhere for an evident oil leak if one is not found leave it run till it gets hot enough to show where the white smoke is coming from and see then if it is residue or a new leak.

Where is the throttle position sensor on a 2003 jeep liberty

On top near the back of the engine you will see a metal throttle cable. It is just to the drivers side of this cable above the spark plug wires. There are two screws holding an oval shaped sensor with a wire connected to it.

I have a 79 jeep cj5 with a 304 and im getting alot of white exhaust smoke after the motor warms up rebuilt the carberuter new plugs wires cap rotor and new coil

White smoke is often times the result of "oil burning". What happens is that instead of the oil control rings on the pistons pushing the oil down into the oil pan, these rings over the course of years become pugged up, as a result the oil control rings "fling" the oil onto the spark plugs causing the oil to get partially burned off in the combustion process causing your simptoms There is only so much you can do to stop this. One thing you might try first is go to the automotive store and buy a crankcase cleaning system. What this does is cleans the inside of your engine including the pistons rings and washes all or most of the gunk in the engine into the oil pan. WARNING: excessive gunk in your oil pan can clog your oil pick up tube depriving your engine of oil, this will cause it to seize up leading to your last resort in fixing what might be your problem, rebuilding the engine. Make sure to follow the manufacturers guidelines when using a crankcase cleaning system.

I have a 95 jeep wrangler. I bought aftermarket tail lights that have red, black and white wires. The existing original wires are, white,white and black and a green and black wire. I need to know which...

match the blacks up they will be your grounds and the green is a ground too I believe as far as the other wires go. In the truck turn on the signals and parking lights and have somebody push the brakes matching up wires till everything works right. Do one thing at a time its not as hard as it sounds.

Cant find IAT on 99 jeep grand cherokee laredo...

Intake Air Temperature sensor.

It has to be installed ->BEFORE the throttle body, to sense the density of the air entering the intake manifold, based upon intake manifold temperature.

It provides an input voltage to the PCM, (Powertrain Control Module)
It's a Negative Thermal Coefficient sensor, (NTC. It uses two wires)

Meaning, as intake manifold temperature Increases, resistance in the sensor increases.
(Less voltage)
As the temperature Decreases, resistance in the sensor Decreases. (More voltage)

The PCM then uses this input to calculate the following;
1.Injector-Pulse Width
2.Adjustment of spark timing.

Just thought you might want to know.

Wish I knew what size your engine is.
A. The IAT in the 3.7 Liter engine, is located in the Left side, {Drivers} of Intake Manifold Plenum. (BEFORE the throttle body)

See that plastic 'snorkel' tube, that comes from the air cleaner housing, and goes to an oval shaped aluminum housing? That oval shaped, {On the end}, housing is the Intake Manifold Plenum.

The 4.7 Liter engine has the IAT in the same place.
The 4.0 Liter has the IAT installed INSIDE, the Front of the Intake Manifold Plenum. (Before the throttle body)

The color of the two wires are Brown with a Yellow stripe, (Thick 20 gauge wire), and Black with a Red stripe. (Thinner wire. 18 gauge)

Oil leak from sensor

It's called an oil pressure sending unit. There are two versions one for vehicles with a light on dash, one for those with a gauge. It's not expensive and MUST be replaced. Not hard to do.
