If your engine light came on, the engine module could have stored a code.
You need to have a scanner to check what code it is and that will point you toward the solution.
Possible causes could be (crank sensor, tps sensor or oxygen sensor).
Don't go replacing parts until you scan the vehicle for codes first.

Sounds as if your 4x4 actuator failed to get all the way out of 4 wheel drive. Try shifting in and out of 4WD, backing up some, etc. You may have to replace the actuator, or some part of that system. Could be time for dealer diagnosis.

Jeep Liberty 2004 sport gas cap not sealing

You can get the silicone grease at automotive and hardware stores. Apply to rubber seal on cap about every 2 to 3 months. This will ensure a seal so that the engine light doesn't come on. Worked great on My 2008 Liberty.

If your check engine light is flashing, it indicates there's a relatively serious problem detected by the ECM - continued operation is not recommended. Have you had the codes read? Not many technicians are willing to guess at what may be wrong without more information than you provided. Post your question again and state what codes you have stored in the ECM. Or you can look the codes up yourself once you know what they are. Or, (recommended solution) take it to a qualified technician and have them troubleshoot it, provide you a recommendation for repairing it, and an estimate.

Is it common in 2004 jeep libertys to have the fuel pump go out? I am replacing mine for the 2nd time in 2 months

No, it is not common for fuel pumps to fail. But if you get into the habit of driving the Jeep when the low fuel indicator lights up, it will cause the pump to overheat and fail prematurely over time.

2004 Jeep Liberty-the Oil indicator light comes on and will stay on. Turn off car immediately as the book indicates, let it sit for awhile, turn back on--light is off. Drive a few miles, light comes back...

Double check how much oil is in the engine, it could be coming on because your low on oil. I can only think of two other possibilities either you have a bad oil sending unit or you have a problem with your oil pump.
