First pass, torque them to 30 Ft Lbs working from the center outward. Then go back again and torque them to 75 Ft Lbs.

You should really go to an auto parts place and buy a manual. This something you really should not cut corners. It will give you the specs and the sequence of how to torque the head. You will also need to know how to set the timing in relation to the cam and crank. Manual is well worth the money. It has pictures, instructions, and such.

Good Luck

What is the torque settings for a mitsubishi colt hiline 2.0i cylinder head?


There is no torque value. Commonly, Head bolts are tightened and then removed in sequence as you step threw 3 values: 23/33/45 ft lbs then the final value is achieved by rotating the bolts 90 degrees so the final value is unknown.

You have to get either a hayes manual or follow a procedure online if you are replacing the head gasket. If you are not replacing the gasket do not "re-torque" the head bolts thinking that you can fix a head gasket leak.

1995 ford windstar thermostat housing bolt torque spec


Most people don't bother using a torque wrench to tighten a thermostat housing.

It is more important to be careful and tighten each bolt a little at a time. You do not want to warp, crack, miss align the part you are bolting.

It does not take a lot of torque to seal a thermostat housing. I would guess somewhere between 15 and 20 ft lbs.

It is often hard to find such torque specs for specific vehicles.

For bolts that you cannot find a specified torque spec, you can refer to a standard bolt torque chart. The charts are based on the diameter of the bolt threads not the wrench size used to fit the bolt head. The charts also depend on the hardness of the bolt material. Also keep in mind the material you are bolting into.

Here is one such chart...

Keep in mind that thermostat housing bolts are just sealing a gasket. They are not holding the entire car together.

After turning wrenches for many years, most mechanics just know by feel.

There are cases where a torque wrench is mandatory. Like head bolts, wheel bearing/hub nuts, rod caps, main bearing, etc.

Replacing the cylinder head on a 2005 Hyundai Accent 1.6 dual overhead cam, need to know the Tourque Specifications for the cylinder head and intake manifold. thanks


Here's what the shop manual states:

30 Nm (300 kg.cm, 22 lb.ft)+90°+Release all bolts + 30 Nm(300kg.cm, 22 lb.ft)+90° In this instance you don't have a 'Torque to Spec"... you have a "torque to YIELD' In this specification, initially torque the head bolts to 22 lb ft... then turn each and additional 90°, then loosen each and REDO to the same specification = 22 lb.ft)+90° (you're actually crushing the head gasket TWICE and stretching the head bolts TWICE.

Replacing the intake manifold gaskets and head gaskets could you tell me the torque for both of these


Before accepting any advice on the torque specifications for the bolts, you should refer to the Haynes manual that specifically relates to your vehicle. The reason reason why knowing the torque specs. for these various bolts is not good enough is that each bolt will need to be tightened in a certain order/sequence. The Haynes manual provide you this information and a lot more! These manuals will run you about $10-$15 and they can be purchased at most auto parts stores (i.e. Auto Zone, Pep Boys, etc.). Good Luck!
