Respectfully.....If you don't know which bolts to remove you probably should not being attempting such a complicated repair. Get some hands on help with it.


Certainly you will have to remove the intake manifold as well as the exhaust manifold before the head will come off.

I have both off but it seems as if the heads screwed onto my AC compressor mount. I found only 2 in front and one mind of on the side


I think you will regret doing this yourself.

You think too much, while I was doin! it’s at the machine shop, thanks guys. Screws were in the mounting of the ac compressor... like way in there and one is so wedged that a had to remove a pulley. Thought I was gonna have to take Freon out but na just a lil struggle n I got it. Had an issue with the 3.0 volcan misfire. It’s a valve recession issue “poor me wahh” na Ima trade her back into same dealer. Once running
