1996 Pontiac Grand Am - Engine - Engine Mechanical - 2.4L

Tips
totally remove exhaust manifold
leave intake on head, remove it after head is out of vehicle
leave injectors/fuel rails all hooked up, just unbolt the fuel rail from head and place it (rail) and injectors off to side.
put crank and cams at TDC and mark them so you put them back in same location when reinstalling.
Other than that, take your time (if applicable). Also these Head bolts are Torque to yield, so it would be in your intrest to get new Cyl. Head Bolts.
Install and tighten the cylinder head bolts in sequence. Tighten
Tighten bolts 1-8 to 65 N·m (40 lb ft).
Tighten bolts 9 and 10 to 40 N·m (30 lb ft). (9 and 10 are the 2 CLOSEST to the cam gears)
Then turn all the bolts an additional 90 degrees in sequence.
Good Luck

Be careful with cam timing or you will bend some valves, not a job for the timid.
