I have the Haynes manual for the vehicle. You make "pull the head" sound pretty easy :). I am looking at the instructions, and it doesn't look very easy to me. I hope you can answer some questions that are probably dumb.
1) How long do you think it would take someone like me, who can usually fix stuff, but has never done anything like this to take out the cylinder head?
2) Roughly how much does the cylinder head weigh (this is a 2.0L 4 cylinder)?
3) I need to call around to see how much a valve job would cost if I took in the head. What exactly should I ask these places? Is it common for someone to take in the whole block and ask that one cylinder be repaired?
