SOURCE: what is the valve cover torque sequence for a 2000 nissan altima

No spec for torque. Bolts have shoulders. Replace gasket. Tighten the 2 center nuts first and just tighten the rest until they stop. You can tighten one and jump across the valve cover and do the other, but not necessary.

SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

Is there a torque amount for tightening the valve covers?


Sure, depends on what engine, but often these are over-tightened thereby distorting valve cover and creating a leak. If they are cheap thin metal stamped covers they should always be checked and straighten as needed when changing gaskets. I usually use adhesive on gasket to the valve cover, but nothing or maybe thin layer of grease on side to engine. Most torque 5 to 7 or 8 ft lbs, but if you see the gasket swelling out around the bolt areas, that is too tight. Use blue loctite to keep bolts from coming loose.

How do I change a valve cover gasket for a 2003 maszda 2.3L


I recommend going out in purchasing the repair manual for this vehicle. You're saving about a hundred plus doing this job yourself.so spending $20 on a manual isn't so bad. It's a straightforward job basically a 10 millimeter socket and remove all the bolts that are holding down the valve cover. And then anything that's in its in your way to remove the valve cover. A rubber mallet will come in handy you also cause some of those valve covers can be a little hard to loosen. once you have the valve cover off clean the head and scrape cover of any remains of the old gasket.Other than that I don't know what kind of gasket this vehicle uses weather is neopran or cork.also weather there isn't a sensor safe adhesive you need with the gasket. That's why for the 20 bucks for the manual it's worth it could answer the questions that you need to know (torque specs tools etc.)to do this job correctly.some manufacturers don't recommend an adhesive usually wouldn't neopraingasket and is he is not use. But in any event with the new gasket on the valve cover and carefully place it on the engine. Once it's on then put the bolts in and tighten them in a crisscross fashion. Then put everything you took off the vehicle to give you access to the valve cover.it's a simple job you're saving yourself a bundle please get the repair manual. Good luck

Changing valve cover gasket


i don\'t know offhand but to be official around 14lbs. These are only little bolts, so a 3/8th rachet and two fingers about halfway down the handle will be the right torque .

I need to change the valve cover gaskets on a 1996


Valve covers are simple (if you have easy access). They normally have about 8-10 bolts surrounding the gasket. Remove these bolts and it comes right off. Remove the old gasket (do not use razor) with putty knife or gasket remover then install the new one. Usually specs are about 20-25ft lbs. You snug them not torque the bolts. The gasket does all the sealing.

Valve cover gasket


valve cover gaskets are in expensive, like 20 bucks, a books that can tell you how to do it would be 25-50 and you will be able to use the book for other things.. there are usually a few long bolts going straight through your valve cover, jus take them off remove the old gasket and put new one in put them back in.. however tightening the valve cover bolts will be the only tricky part.. you may need a torque wrench and have to refer to the book to know exatly how tight they should be.. but as a rule of thumb 80-90 ft-lb of tork is usually used.. be careful when doing this cuz if you put the wrong torque on it will bend your valve covers or posibbly not seal correctly

1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!


The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,


Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
