    The engine has to come out to do these head gaskets. Lining up the camshafts is tricky, check them after repairs, check them again and turn over the engine again and check them again. very easy to be a tooth out! Its not rocket science but is a lot of work. You NEED proper information subscribe to Alldata its cheap. There is a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
