Torque is a means of measurement. for example if your service manual says to torque the head bolts to 75 ft. lbs. that means you need to use a torque wrench and set it to 75 ft lbs. sometimes people will say to crank down or to torque down a nut / bolt that is slang for tightening down the nut / bolt very tight. it all depends on the application.when in doubt, check your service manual.

Can I retorque the head bolts on my subaru forester 2003, I've just recently replaced the head gaskets?


Gaylene Green,


If you already had a heating issue... just skip over all this meaningless RE-Torque "STUFF"

If there was no overheating
before this procedure... I would suggest either the WRONG GASKETS were used... or they were somehow reversed blocking a water passage).

TORQUE has two ways to go...
Too loose = leaks (water and/or combustion)
Too TIGHT = Broken bolt/stripped threads

If it will make you happy

Sure... TIGHTEN... and then RE-TIGHTEN... after running.

That USED to be the way it was done... until they came out with WONDERFUL "Modern" head gaskets... (tighter... never looser... and NEVER (MORE) too tight.

If you think your torque is too much... you MUST also follow the REVERSE torque pattern when loosening (else risk a fractured casting (FOR REALS)).

Although I seriously doubt the desired effect...

The answer is SURE...!! Go for it... Re-Torque...

(Could not possibly hurt... unless you do it wrong!)

Just not sure of the "OVERHEAT" diagnosis...
sounds more than a bit odd.


***
If there is any previous history of overheating... I would pursue that as an INDEPENDANT issue.

Thermostat, defective water pump... radiator cap... or crusted up radiator (any or all of the above + rotten casting plugs in the engine).

Head torque... Naaah.

I just did the wheel bearings on my 1985 ford f 150 2 wd i need to find out what the torque is for the nut that holds my wheel bearings and brake rotor on thank you very much


  • There is not a torque speck for that.

  1. Just thread the adjuster into the spindle and tighten real good with a ratchet.
  2. Then rotate the wheel forward to seat them bearings real good.
  3. Give it another tighten then back that adjuster nut off 1/8 of a turn.
  4. Then put the nut lock washer on over the adjuster nut and put a cotter pin in the hole.


  • Your lug nuts are torqued at 100ft lbs though.

Drilled and inserted 16 headbolt holes with time-sert inserts on a 2001 olds intrigue 3.5 when i torqued the heads one bolt did not seem to take as much force to turn as others but it seems tight do i...


Were to able to torque them all to spec? Did you torque in the proper sequence? If so, you are ok, but if you are still concerned, you could put some locktite on the bolt you feel is a bit lose.

Hope this helps.

What are the torque specs for belt tensioner


There no real specs for the tensioner. The bolt should be tight and the unit as a whole should be squared to the engine. If it is in anyway tilted, th eunit is coming apart and will need to be replaced. One bolt holds this unit in place. It should have adequate tension to keep the belt taunt against all the pullies. If you are dealing with a constant squeel issue, locate the writing and you should be able to read it like holding a book in your hand. If it is upside down to you, reinstall. this will take care of the squeeling 9 times out of 10. The tensioners for replacement run about $50 - $75.
