First you have to take the radiator out, fan and fan shroud. then remove all the belts. Next remove the Power Steering idler pulley, power stearing pump, alternator bracket. Once done, you have to disconnect all electrical wires and hoses that go to your intake because you need to remove the intake next. Also remove the exhaust manifold/headers. Now you take off the valve cover. Make sure to take out all spark plugs and set the engine to TDC.

Append: Radiator does not need to be removed, neither does alternator or its bracket. I've done this job twice over the past 4 months. Make sure when removing the camshaft timing sprocket that your timing chain is held in place so that you do not lose engagement at the crankshaft sprocket. If the chain is not held in its exact location at the crank sprocket, that is if a link moves from a sprocket tooth, there is no way to make certain your valve timing is correct. You will then have to remove the timing chain cover to properly index the chain, adding possibly 30% or more to the labor time for the job! On the other hand, if you're going to go to the trouble of replacing the head gasket, you might as well consider replacing the timing chain at the same time anyway.
If it was removed then YES.
