This is similar to a 98 Windstar 3.8 that I helped to replace the timing cover. The studs were heated up with a torch (not a small hand held one for say- soldering), this transfered the heat to the block and (supposedly expanded the holes) then soon as the stud was hot, it was blasted with a chemical fire extinguisher (believe it or not) to "freeze" the stud and in turn make it "smaller". With a pair of vise grips- the 2 frozen studs came out! ! PS- I recommend purchasing the stud kit from the dealer. It will supply you with the correct length studs and attaching hardware....
