Head bolt torque yield


90% of head bolts are stretched when installed. If you have the torque settings, you can confirm this by checking the specs. If it says example, 90lbs feet, plus a quarter turn, this confirms they are gonna stretch once torqued.
In any case, yes, change those head bolts at all costs. DO NOT RE-USE THEM. Make sure to torque and in the order as well. do not use a random pattern when torqueing.

The torque specs should be the same but I have never heard of this before. Make sure you have the head checked for cracks & checked for warpage. It may need to be planed. Be sure to use a top quality head gasket. Good luck!

I blew the head gasket on my 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 L OHV. I am needing to know the torque specs so that I can have the gasket replaced tomorrow! A picture would be wonderful! Uncle is going to fix it but...


When torquing items today very little is done with just "numbers" in the process. Now you have to have an angle meter to complete the process so when you see me say to torque a specific number "plus so many degrees", this is how it's done. This is the meter:df03f54.gif Now, Here are the specs for installing the head:
Cylinder Head Bolt
  • First Pass
30 N·m
22 lb ft
  • Final Pass
155 degrees


Here is the sequence shown in picture form:
e8f4606.gif Also, you will need to discard the old bolts because they are "torque to yeild" bolts and CANNOT be reused. The reason: "Torque to yeild" bolts actually stretch during the torque process and once they've gone through this process they can't be reused because they no longer are able to "clamp" the head because they are too long. Hope this helps your repair project.
