New cylinder head bolts are required and an angle guage,or you can make one up with card and a set square. Head bolt torque is 25Nm(newton metres)+60degrees + 60deg + 60 deg so it's a four step process.Con.rod bolts(big-end)28Nm,Inlet manifold 28Nm,Exhaust manifold 25Nm, Crank pulley 40Nm,Sump 5Nm and use locking compound (loctite)Timing cover 6Nm. Valve clearance,set inlets to .006" and ehausts to .010"(set approx.when cold then re-adjust while warmed engine is idling.

2003 chevy astro van w/AWD. AWD is not working at all.


what was your test to determine the failure ?
if you jacked up one end and the car didn't drive off the jacks , that is how an all wheel drive works
It has a differential in the transmission that allows the front axle to drive at different speeds to the rear ( same as one wheel on the axle will go faster than the other when going around corners)
it is used to prevent torque wind up in the drive train and destroying transmissions , diffs and drive lines
it has to have all 4 wheels on the ground so that the 3rd diff is not operational unless going over a speed bump or dips in the road
however if you have a 4 wheel lock for the transmission, that is different as it locks up the 3rd diff in the transmission making the car a 4 x 4

Is there a correct way to insert rear wheel bearings on 2003 Lincoln town car


If it is the rear axle housing your installing the seal into
& the seal has an open side

Then the open side with the spring, goes into the housing
& the seal is at the outer end toward you

If you have a long bearing, it could have the seal as part of it
& it is to the outside

Your way of asking, the seal goes toward the wheel,not the diff

In my 2005 Lincoln Town car, when driving in wet weather on the interstate with the traction control on, the skid control in the dash lights up. and the engine stops. If I shut the traction control off,...


The Enhanced Traction System (ETS) is designed to limit wheel slip during acceleration. This objective is accomplished by cutting fuel to selected cylinders, retarding spark and upshifting the transmission. The EBCM monitors wheel speed slip through the ABS wheel speed sensors and determines the desired torque reduction needed to minimize wheel spin.
the wheel speed sensor may be bad

Refill gear oil in rear differential on 2003 ford mustang gt


The differential will have a plug in the driver's side of the housing that is removed with a 3/8" drive ratchet or square drive. Be sure you know what type of fluid is recommended for your vehicle. It will depend on whether it is a locking differential or standard.

You have to remove the differential housing cover.
Then turn the center housing until you can see the 5/16 bolt that holds the center pin that goes thru the spider and axle gears.
Remove the bolt and center pin,be careful that the gears stay in place.
Then push in on the axles to expose the c-clips on the end of the axles and remove the c-clip.
Then remove the axle.
