nope, the chiltons tell you what to do, but almost never tell you how to do it.
Haynes manuals aren't much better, but I like the Haynes over the Chiltons.
Best way to learn how to work on your truck or engine: go start tearing stuff apart and putting it back together again. Usually to get one piece off another has to come off before it, its like a big puzzle really. Once you do that 3 or 4 times you can almost do it blindfolded. I can go out right now and have my 2.3T out of my truck in an hour. Have it on the engine stand, and completely stripped in another hour. Then have it mic'd/guaged/honed and rebuilt in 3 more hours. Thats if I worked non stop though.
If you have a few spare dollars, go to a junkyard and buy an engine and take it home to practice tearing it apart and putting it back together, thats the best way to learn this engine, which even though it may not look it, its really a simple setup.
