you must loosen all the bolts to separate the intake and exhaust manifolds , support engine underneath with jack and remove the engine mount on yhe passenger side of the engine, remove the valve cover, remove the bolt holding the metal water pipe in front of the engine, loosen all 10 head bolts from the outside in, remove head bolts and pull up. have head checked and resurfaced at a machine shop then replace in the opposite order.
