I need a step by step instruction on how to change a head gasket on a 2004 jeep liberty.

no engine stated. so.....
step by step. that include tools"?
the full step by step is in the FSM, why not read that.?
factory service manual>? then ask questions.
the first question is why , did you overheat it?
and if yes, the head must be checked for warpage and then pressure checked,
or its just repeats, 90% of all repeats are not doing all steps right.
use jeep gaskets or FELPRO
FSM (real deal)

clone: 15 bucks

best clone of all

questions to ask self
why it failed
are head bolts re-usable or one time TTY bolts.
and are you having pro look at head and block deck to see if the
surfaces are good to use again , damage has no limts....

I assume you are hearing a starter Relay/solenoid chattering. That's usually caused by:

A dead battery.

A loose connection on Battery or start relay/solenoid.

Bad connection at starter or bad starter.

Good Luck
