SOURCE: Head bolt torque specs needed for 96 tbird 3.8

Head bolts are torque to yeild so you MUST use new bolts.
Tighten cylinder head retaining bolts in numerical sequence in three steps as follows:

  1. 20 Nm (15 lb-ft).
  1. 40 Nm (30 lb-ft).
  1. 50 Nm (37 lb-ft)
Loosen retaining bolts one at a time two to three revolutions and retighten as follows:

Long bolts:
  • Tighten to 40-50 Nm (30-37 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Short Bolts:
  • Tighten to 20-30 Nm (15-22 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Here is a pic of the sequence

Hi I have a 04 l200 warrior that has over heating problems just had head gasket done an new thermostat replaced an full service an viscuse fan replaced an still over heating any idea what else to done

The radiator might need to be boiled out due to mineral deposits.

The hoses on the suction side might be collapsing, the water pump might have worn out impellors. The coolant water ratio might be wrong.

What is causing the problem why has the gasket failed for the second time, I have tightened it down to the correct settings?

you didn't torque each head bolt properly or its not the head gasket and it is a cracked cylinder.

97 Mitsubishi Eclipse 420a head gasket replaced, but still leaks. Head was refinished, any thoughts why it didn't take?

The correct practice when doing head work is to remove any build up at that base of the holes and to run a thread tap down to ensure that the thread is clean all the way to the bottom. Blow out the holes with compressed air. In you case leave the head off and screw in each bolt all the way by hand and measure the distance between the head of the bolt and the block surface . IT should be much smaller than the width of the head by say 1/4". If it is then the bolts will allow enough compression of any sort of gasket used . A point of interest here is that this engine uses a torque setting until all the bolts are set and then the final torque is obtained by angular setting of the head of the stud/bolt. Use the correct tensioning sequence as this is vital to set the head properly..

Mitsubishi 4m40 l200

unless you have had extensive head work the I suggest that you use a genuine gasket as it has been pre-coated with an adhesive that seals the head properly on the correct tensioning. The head gaskets are made with a metal section around each cylinder that stops the combustion fire from burning out the head gasket so from experience I would not waste time trying to make a gasket as mostly they do not worjk

Hi. I am assembling a avanza 1.3 that blew head gasket. What are the torque settings for head bolt

I don't have the specs.Evenly go around to all of the head bolts and gradually torque them. 20,40 60 foot pounds.
Depending on the type of gasket you used,you may have to re-torque the bolts after it has gone through one heat cycle.

I need to find out the correct torque settings for the head of a mitsubishi l200 can anyone help

if you dont want to pay online fees, goto a Advance auto parts or Pep boys and tell them you need to order the Head Bolts, and while talking to them ask them the correct lbs of torque. After all it is best to buy new Head Bolts anyway....they stretch...believe it or not!

Mitsubishi L200 overheating

i have an l200 animal, i started getting the same symptoms, bubbling noises, over heating, water being discharged into the header tank, i had a good look around the engine,there was no oil in the water or water in the oil ( signs of head gasket failure) when the radiator cap was off and i revved hard nothing happened, no dip in water levels and no splashing out. i took the water pump off and the impellor had sheered off the shaft. fitted a new pump and its been fine, maybe all these cracked cylinder heads and warped heads are to do with the engine being run with the fault not being cured.
