Throttle Body Question / Help Please??

I am new to working on cars, I need a little help. I have poured through my service manual and all the online forums and can not identify the location of my Throttle Body. Can someone help me find this in the most easy to understand way. (referring to other parts will not work cause i am learning where they all are right now). If someone were to post a picture pointing to it that would be awesome!!!

I have had a check engine code P1140 and took it to the dealer. They said that it is the throttle body and needed to be replaced. The dealer's price tag is $922 with tax. I know the throttle body is held on with just three screws and if I can find this part I feel that I should be able to replace it myself. I am fairly mechanically inclined and do well at assembling and fixing things around the house, though I've never worked on a car before. Any help and directions would be wonderful. I have read how people clean their throttle body all the time so I am figuring it has to be somewhat accessible?

Oh and my car just recently started to shake a bit on shut down and has stalled 3 times now in the last week, just down the street from my house. It is a 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD.

thanks again!

You see the tube that says k&n. The throttle boby is at the opposite end from the pink conical filter thingy. Your stock intake will be slightly different but will still be in the center toward the back of the engine. I'm assuming that you have the V6.


I'll see if I can find a stock photo.

In the same vein as this question, has anyone ever put in a throttle body spacer (supposedly gives more horsepower and mpg)?
