Buy a book for the vehicle. A Chilton's / Haynes either one will give you good instruction but the most important part is the torque specs needed for reassembly. If you are not a experienced at all with engines I would not attempt this cause you also need a pretty wide variety of tools.

Glow plug brocken off in head

Are the threads of the glow plug assembly broken off in the head?
Any way to get a hold and turn?
If so you can try to heat it with a torch or penetrating lubricant.

If there is no other solution but to drill and tap I would take off the head and take it to a cylinder shop, have it machined and replace the head. I know this may seem like a task but if you have time and another vehicle its a lot cheaper to do it yourself. Get a book for your vehicle that shows the repair and replace procedure and torque specks.

Good luck--

I hope this helps!

We need the cylinder head torque specks for a 2.4 liter engine on a 98 plymouth breeze


Fig. 1: Cylinder head bolt tightening sequence-2.0L SOHC engine


Fig. 2: Cylinder head bolt tightening sequence-2.0L and 2.4L DOHC engines

Tighten the bolts in 4 steps as follows:
a. First: all bolts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).

b. Second: all bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).

c. Third: all bolts again to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
d. Fourth: all bolts an additional 1 / 4 turn.

Do not use a torque wrench for the fourth step.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Need to find specks on cylingder head for 1996 toyota tercel

The cylinder head bolt torque is a 2 step process.

First: Torque all of the bolts to 45 Nm (450 Kgf-cm or 33 ft lbs.)
Replace any head bolt that will not torque to the above specs.

Second: after all ten bolts are torqued to the above specs, the head bolts are then "Torqued to Distance"...

Starting at the center bolts, retorque all ten bolts an additional 90 degrees.

Hope this helps, the graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.
