Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

How many bolts hold Mitsubishi 2.0 head on?The reason I ask is because there are 3 bolts in the middle of the head that are a different size than the other 12 bolts?Do these bolts need to come off to remove the head?Or is the head held down by the 12 bolts only?The repair book I have doesn't say anything about the 3 bolts in the middle.

    If the head won't come loose after removing the 12 bolts then it is a fair guess the other 3 are head retaining bolts. I have no idea of the year of the engine or I would look it up, please provide the year if you need further help.

There are only 10 head bolts on that engine. the 3 bolts your talking about, aren't bolts they are plugs and shouldn't be removed.
how many bolts hold Mitsubishi - a60ce70.jpg7ff722a.jpg if your pulling the head with the intake manifold attached, make sure you removed the bolts from the support bracket under the intake manifold.

no my rumors.. usa cars
and these words, step 1.
"Cylinder head bolts. Tighten the cylinder head bolts gradually and in the sequence shown. Tighten the cylinder head bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) and turn the bolts another 3 turns of 90 degrees using the angular torque gauge KM-470-B."
again, our USA 2.0L engine only,
it does not state new bolts.

Head torque specification for l200 4d56 DID DOHC 2007

what car? and year>? and country , so we can look it up in our
great online sources. (all 3 must be known)
in the USA we use (or the dealer FSM)

i guess you dont know that some heads are not torqued, or use TTY bolts, right? some are set by ANGLE degree.
that is covered in the FSM all that. the facts.
most head failures result from guessing.
or asking here, with no facts on car.
some engine run different heads, and different if turbo.

case in point, all this Mitsubishi engines

my guess
Mitsubishi Triton

What are the torque specs on a 2000 Nissan maxima head


If possible, replacement of the head bolts is suggested.
  1. If replacement of the head bolts is not possible, perform the following bolt measurement:
    1. Measure the diameter of the head bolt 0.43 in. (11mm) from the bottom of the bolt.
    2. Measure the diameter of the head bolt 1.89 in. (48mm) from the bottom of the bolt.
    3. Whenever the size difference between the 2 measurements exceeds 0.0043 in. (0.11mm) the head bolts must be replaced.
  2. Install the cylinder head bolts and torque in sequence as follows:
    1. Step 1: 72 ft. lbs. (98 Nm).
    2. Step 2: Completely loosen all bolts.
    3. Step 3: 25-33 ft. lbs. (34-44 Nm).
    4. Step 4: plus 90-95 degrees clockwise.
    5. Step 5: plus 90-95 degrees clockwise.

Two bolts are striped on 1983 280ZX, what size are head bolts to get right size heli coil and how hard is it to install heli coil in block ?

You should take the stripped bolts with you to purchase the new bolts at the auto store at the same time you buy the heli-coil inserts. While I could give you a possible size, (some are shorter, some longer in some engines) you have the exact part right there with you. Go ahead and take a good head bolt with you too.

The inserts are of brittle steel and must be installed carefully, but, this is done frequently for the same reason you need them without any problem.

There is also the option of tapping the damaged threads up to the next size, and using a different size head bolt, but you have to decide which is best based on your experience level and the availability of parts.

I do not know,but 8mm is used most,the length you may can figure out,but go to the parts house,and ask for2 bolts 8mm 1.25 thread,at 25 mm long,and ask for 8mm 1.50 thread,and 25mm length,and cover your bases,they are not that high in price,if some one has them,this way you can go by this,Look at the e g r valve to make sure you can get the bolts in the holes of the e g r valve,cause the heads of the new bolts will ,no doubt be larger than the ones that came out of it,the bolts are a general,or generic if you will,and will work if you can get them in the e g r valve,and use a wrench to screw them in,
