Two things I would check is how dirty the throttle body is and the egr valve. When the truck is idling the throttle body is barely cracked open and a ton of dirt on the butterfly can block some air from getting in causing it not to idle. just google cleaning throttle body. I would also check with the dealer and see if your jeep has an egr valve, Im sure it needs to be replaced and would cause the Jeep not to idle correctly.

2002 jeep liberty wont stay running at low ideal

Your throttle valve and idle speed control valve are sludged up. here is what you need to do to correct this, buy a can of CRC brand throttle valve cleaner, spray it into the running engine while holding the throttle up so it will not stall, use up about half the can, then spray and stall the engine out, let it stand for a few hours or overnight, that will let the cleaner soak the sludge and it will free up the system to properly control idle speed.

Most teermostat are intalled at the upper portion of the cylinder head, (dischared side) just trace where the upper radiator hose is attached at the cylinder head side. there you can find the thermostat. Can you do it by yourself.
