timing chain cover problems

I am not able to remove the timing chain cover. I have removed all the bolt and both pulleys. Everything that needs to be removed so that the cover will pop off, but it won't. I need some tips on how to remove the cover.

I have a 96, automatic

Whack it with a plastic-faced or rubber hammer. DON'T pry on it and don't wedge anything into the mating surfaces.

I had the same problem when my water pump went on my 95 and i cracked the casing and it was leaking oil, so DON'T PRY.

Make sure... I know you took all 17 or 18 bolts out......but make sure you take off the oil pan.. it is somehow connected to the timing chain cover on the bottom..... An expensive lesson for doityourselfers out there.....
