I would recommend buying both Haynes and Chiltons books and a garage to store it in for about 3-4 days to do the job yourself. An extra hand or two will be quite helpful. By the way , be careful of the timing chain tensioner, yo will need to replace it and all gaskets, might as well change the chain if you have an extra buck.

The individual who answered forgot to inform you that you need to change the chain guides and be extra careful while installing the water pump and be sure the gaskets are in place, especially the one that's on the engine block side, because that's one that usually slips and you will end up with a leak. And guess what? You get to do the whole procedure again, including removing the intake again! To correct the leak problem.

You don't need to replace the timing gasket. Just clean it with some lite soap and water as long as theres no tears in it. Its made up from Kavlar and for future referance so is the transmission gasket.
