Head torque and pattern


The S-10 had two (2) different head bolts, a long bolt and a short one . The torque on the long one is 46ft./lbs. and an additional 90 degrees . The short one is 43ft./lbs. and an additional 90 degrees .

Looking at the head from the front of the vehicle, follow this torque sequence :
Start with the center bolt on the passengers side (left side of the head), followed by the center bolt on the drivers side (right side of the head) . Then torque the bolt behind the center bolt on the passengr side . Next torque the bolt in front of the center bolt on the drivers side . Then torque the bolt behind the center bolt on the drivers side . Next torque the bolt in front of the center bolt on the passeger side . The torque the last bolt on the drivers side, followed by the front bolt on the passenger side, followed by the last bolt on the passenger side, and lastly, the front bolt on the drivers side .

How to replace head gasket 1998 Lumina


Cylinder Head Removal & Installation 3.1L Engine To Remove:
NOTE: With some minor variations, this procedure can be used on both the left and right cylinder heads.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Drain the engine coolant and the engine oil. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Remove the upper and lower intake manifolds.
  4. Remove the rocker arms and pushrods.
  5. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe.
  6. Remove the engine mount strut bracket.
  7. If removing the left side (front) head, remove the dipstick tube.
  8. Tag for identification, then remove the spark plug wires.
  9. Remove the spark plugs.
  10. Remove the exhaust manifold using the procedures found in this section.
  11. Remove the eight cylinder head bolts, then remove the cylinder head. There are locator pins that align the head to the block. Pull upwards on the head to disengage the pins, then remove the cylinder head to a suitable work area.
  12. If the head is be overhauled, remove any remaining components such as the engine lift hook, the fuel line bracket bolts, the engine coolant temperature sensor, etc., as required.
Position a new gasket, install the head, then tighten the bolts in the sequence shown (3.1L engine shown) 93173g43.gif

To Install:
NOTE: If the head gasket failed, determine the cause. Gasket failure is caused by the following conditions: improper installation; overheating due to a failure in the electric cooling fan system or a leak in the cooling system; loose or warped cylinder head; missing, off location or not fully seated locator dowel pins; low torque on the cylinder head bolts; warped block surface; scratched or gouged gasket surfaces; excessive intake manifold torque and even cracked engine block tapped holes.
  1. Clean all parts well. Remove all foreign material to the bare metal. Do not use a motorized wire brush on any gasket sealing surface. It is good practice to use the proper size thread-cutting tap to clean the threaded bolt holes in the block. This helps assure an accurate torque reading.
  2. Place a new head gasket on the clean engine block deck surface. Many gaskets will have some sort of marking denoting TOP or THIS SIDE UP. Make sure the gasket sits flat and is not hung up on the locator dowel pins. Use no sealer on the head gasket.
  3. Carefully set the cylinder head in place, using care not to damage the gasket. Make certain that the head engages the locator dowel pins that properly position the head.
  4. The bolts should be very clean since dirt built-up on the bolt threads makes it difficult to get an accurate torque reading. These are 'torque to yield' bolts which stretch a small amount when tightened; new bolts are always recommended. On a used vehicle, especially a high-mileage vehicle, it may be difficult to determine if the heads have been removed before and how many cycles the bolts have been removed and tightened. New bolts should be part of any cylinder head service. Use GM Sealer #1052080, or equivalent, on the threads of the head bolts and install all eight bolts, finger-tight.
  5. With an accurate torque wrench, tighten the bolts gradually, in sequence, working from the center outwards. Final torque should be 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm), plus an additional 90 degrees (1/4-turn). A torque angle meter is recommended.
  6. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process.

Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???


most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.

To replace rockerarm,do i need to remove the head?first 1 left side facing the car.


You should only have to remove the rocker assembly,the head bolts ussually hold the assembly on,but even if you remove them the head gasket will stay sealed.You'll have to get the torque specs and bolt down sequence,and check to see if its recomended to replace the head bolts.When you dissassemble the rocker assembly lay the parts out in sequece and reassemble in the correct order.Hope this helps.
