Hi,

I'd love help you get this one sorted.

Take a look at this diagram and let me know where you are getting stuck.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I am stuck at the front of the cylinder head where the timing chain connects to it. I can't seem to find where else I need to disconnect any bolts to lift it off the engine block. I'm a girl by the way and doing this alone.
Expert:  Jared D replied 9 months ago.

Oh so you need help pulling the head, you have already pulled the intake?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Are the intakes those bars thAT look like mufflers, because if so , I have already detached them from both sides.
Expert:  Jared D replied 9 months ago.

These are the intake manifolds, there is an upper and a lower.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The circled items have been removed,it's item1 is stuck on the engine
Expert:  Jared D replied 9 months ago.

Ok cool.

You have pulled all of the head bolts right?

Then you pulled the timing chain?

All of the pulleys are removed, and the motor mount is pulled?
