I'm ready to remove a cylinder head from a 2000 Jeep Cherokee. Problem is I can't break any of the them loose. Anyone have some guidance for me?

Thanks

PB Blaster and a breaker bar should do the job

Thanks for all the answers to my questions. Now the big one. I've put everything back together. The Haynes manual say to find TDC on #1 Piston. It gives me all this direction about distributor cap which I don't have (inline 6 cylinder) and then tells me to turn the shaft so that notch lines up with the 0. I've done this. Then the manual tells me to torque all the rocker arms. The manual doesn't direct me to then do pistons 2, 3 and so on. It does spell it out for the V-6 engine. (I looked to see if the directions where the same) Do I not have to find the TDC on pistons 2 through 6 before I torque those rocker arms?

The directions apply to all of the cylinders...find the firing order, find the TDC of each piston in that order, and torque the rockers as you go. It's a good idea to re-torque them after about 100 miles.
