VALVE SEALS

1992 Pontiac Sunbird

Engine Mechanical problem
1992 Pontiac Sunbird 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 231000 miles

I want to change the valve seals, since it is smokes when started and idling. I have taken off the camshaft carrier cover, but was inable to get to the valve springs because of the camshaft. What is the best way to remove the camshaft? Remove the camshaft carrier or just the camshaft. It appears the bolts that hold the carrier also hold the head. If the carrier is removed, does the head gasket have to be replaced? If just the camshat is removed, what kind of job am I loking at?
