SOURCE: replacement of a head gasket on 2.5 liter nissan altima 2002

frajogag: First off, be aware that these bolts are "torque to yield" bolts (streach bolts). What this means is that instead of torqueing the head bolts to a specific torque specification, they are torqued down to a set spec and then tightened by rotating the bolts a certain angle, like 90 degrees. and all of them are turned the same amount.
This means that the shanks of the bolts must be checked to make sure they are not too thin (or the bolt has already stretched beyond limits and is prone to snap if used)
Here is how you check the bolts. Measure the bolt using a micrometer, at the base, or within the first 13mm from the end where it threads in. Then go to about 10mm before the threads end heading toward the top of the bolt. There should not be more than a 0.23mm (.0091 inch) or less difference or the bolt should be discarded.
Torque the bolts down to 98.1Nm ( 72.ft lb)
Looking at the head from the side, so you are looking at the full length from side to side, I will number the head bolts in this fashion.
#1 & 2 are directly in front of you and in the center of the cylinder head crossing it width wise.
#3&4 are to the left of #1&2, / #5&6 are to the right of #1&2
#7&8 are to the left of #3&4 / #9$10 are to the right of #5&6
Now, you have the sequence.
After the initial pull, back off all the bolts in the same sequence and then retorque them to 36 Nm ( 28 ft lb)
Using a torque angle wrench or having the ability to accurately judge turning angles. Rotate (clockwise) to a 75 degree angle. do this to all the bolts using the sequence I had provided.
Rotate the bolts (clockwise) 75 degrees again on all bolts in the same sequence. The proceedure is complete!

SOURCE: 2007 Nissan Altima - smoke from tailpipe

It sounds normal white smoke comes from moisture in the air as it's burned and the air temprature is different. it creates steam they gray smoke is a little harder to decide what it is, normally gray smoke is related to oil burning and black is over fuel, depending on how many miles it has on it it could have bad valve guide seals but would not worry about it.

SOURCE: leaking coolant from head gasket area and valve

Well the head gasket job will cover the valve cover gasket ( you have to do one to get to the other) Bring it to a repair shop its about a $1500 job.

05 Nissan Altima 4.2l replaced valve cover, gasket, and spark plugs looks fine with no leaks and engine runs fine,now I have lots of white smoke at start up which goes away once engine is warm.


White smoke indicates water going through your engine or condensation in your exhaust. If it is a lot of smoke you probably have a small leak in your head gasket that seals back up as the engine warms and the materials expand. It will get worse as time goes on. If it's just a little smoke that doesn't last long it's probably condensation in your exhaust, especially if it's cold outside. Condensation is caused by the air cooling down in your exhaust after you shut down the engine.

My Alero is overheating, and pushing the coolant out the surg tank, my brother said water pump, changed. then said thermostat, changed. then said radiator clogged, flushed. still doing the same thing?


Do fans come on , if not it is the $8 dollar temp sensor or the fan fuse or the fan motor.
If you have heat from the heater and if radiator gets hot then it is neither the raditor or the water pump nor the thermostat as neither heater or radiator would get hot
because no water would be moving in the system.

Loosing power white smoke


white smoke is caused by water entering or anti-freeze entering cylinder. if in radiator or recovery tank, it will look like a chocalate milkshake. check on oil dipstick for traces of water or anti-freeze. possible causes, head gasket, intake gasket, etc. check close for a bad gasket.

White smoke occasionally coming out of my Altima tail pipes.


If there is no loss of Coolant, which is a sign of Head gasket failure to the combustion area, which generates white smoke, I would recommend after 4000 miles of your mileage alone, a complete Service of Engine Oil and filter, AIR filter and Fuel filter.
An inexpensive way to find a recurring combustion problem, At 60k miles, the Spark plugs should still be good, but pull them anyway, just to confirm.

My car is altima 2005.it is heating when drove more thane 100 k/h.Please could help me?


Hello, have you done a maintenance on the cooling system, radiator flush, thermostat replacement, hoses, water pump etc? Also, has anyone taken off the radiator shroud? believe it or not, the shroud plays a big roll in the cooling of the engine.

If its not the cooling system

Is there any oil in the radiator fluid, or water in the oil, the oil will almost look like coffee creamer. check for white/blue smoke coming from the tail pipe, if you can do a pressure test in the cylinders, it may be the head gasket then.

MY 2000 MAXIMA IS HAVING LOTS OF ISSUES


Your antifreese is leaking through the engine block The white smoke that you see coming out off the tail pipe is steam from heating up the antifreeze. This problem needs to be taken to a mechanic because your engine may have a blown head gasket or a cracked block. You keep having to fill it up with antifreeze because it is evaporating inside your engine block. Check your oil and see if the color is like a white milky liquid. If so then its definitely your head gasket. Try not to run the car to much like this because you will crack the engine. This is a pretty expensive job. You may want to consider a different vehicle because who knows what else will go wrong with this vehicle. I hope this helps you.
