Hey Karen==Get a shop manual from a parts store and it will give you the information and it has pictures also. GoodluckJoe

If you've never done this before it'll save you time and money to pay someone else to do it.

It's way to expensive at a shop or a dealer. Is there anywhere we can get simple "how to" instructions on how to do it?

Replacing the head gasket on any vehicle is a long and complicated process, however if you wish to see basic step-by-step instructions go to the related question on the right side of the page "How do you replace a head gasket?"

Two very important tips with the 2.4L... when installing the cams turn the crankshaft 90 degrees (3 o'clock position). This puts all the pistons half way,which leaves room for the valves to open until you get everything in time.Then when it's time to put chain on and the cams are set in time turn the crank backwards that 90 degrees to 12 o'clock ... and, make sure the cam followers(lifters) are spongy and not pumped-up solid.They will not let the valves close and will destroy the open valves,piston, and possibly the head
