Nice Try MrMark52 Unfortunately, This usually always winds up with a Cracked Block. I would have a Mechanic check it out and find out exactly what the Extent of the Damage it has caused.

    I have been a Mechanic for 35 Years. Trust me, You caused some damage in there. Could be the Radiator, Waterpump, Block, Heads, Intake Manifold, ETC.

Sounds like you toasted the engine if you put water and coolant where the oil went, particularly if you drove it that way.

Cost to repair is going to be pretty deep, probably $2000 or more.

    Sorry if anyone felt that I was trying to stiff the Asker for an engine. I interpreted his question as though he put water/coolant where the oil went, the engine was started (and possibly driven) when he saw a puff of smoke and the engine died.

    I think others could have drawn the same conclusion based on the information given.

I have a 1998 Holden Astra eng noEL20B24119 and want to know the Head bolt torque settings and sequence. The engine is the transition model with twin tappet cover seals. has the torx star headed bolts.


I cannot find a EL20B in my data,but all Astra listed had the same head sequence as shown:

10 6 2 3 7

9 5 1 4 8

the torque specs for the C20XE,C20NE,X20XEV were all
25nm(18lb/ft),-then 90 deg,-90deg,-90deg.
Z20LET were as above plus an additional 15deg.
Same data for smaller and larger engines(except a couple that were 45deg instead of 15)
Make sure that you replace the head bolts with new,they are torque to yield bolts that are designed to stretch to 'plastic' state,and should not be reused.
Put grease(graphite if you have it) under bolt heads and washers,oil the threads.
Usually the head sets come with the torque specs.
I hope this helps you.
