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.

My discovery 2 is a pain to start when it's cold sounds like it's only firing on two cylinders it's deisel,I've had a new head and head gasket fitted it smokes really bad and gradually picks up revs when...


would need to play with it and try it myself when its cold, but i would be inclined to check out the glow plugs and maybe even have the injectors reset before playing with teh injector pump ,also fitting a non return valve in the fuel inlet line and one in the return in case the valves in the injector pump are starting to play up

My vitara p reg 2L started smoking on start up, now it is misfiring any ideas where i start, I can't see any spark plugs in the engine-maybe i'm blind or stupid


Many new cars hide most of the engine underneath plastic covers that must be removed to find anything. The smoking problem may or may not be serious, but it's likely that the spark plugs will show black oily deposits on the interior insulators. Cleaning or replacing the plugs will usually make the engine run ok for awhile, but with continued smoking, it will foul the plugs again. If all the plugs are fouled, then look for something like a bad PCV valve that creates crankcase pressure when plugged. Worn out valve seals which allow oil to leak into the cylinders can account for smoking only on start-up. These seals can usually be replaced without pulling the cylinder head. Hope this helps!

Won't idle properly, smokes, does not shift right


Black smoke is usually too much fuel to the engine. Check main computer that controls fuel injection and timing.
Blue smoke is usually oil getting sucked past worn piston rings or valve seals.
White smoke = water getting into cylinders, bad head or intake manafold gasket, or cracked cylinder head or engine block.

Oil dripping from exhaust manifold


Either the cylinder head is cracked or, Is it possible that a stud had once been broken off in the hole(s) and when they were drilled out the drill went a bit to deep and punctured the cylinder head? That is about the only reason their would be oil coming out of the manifold stud holes as the holes are not connected internally to anything.

Misses and lots of white smoke on start up when sitting for 10-12 hours. New glow plugs and injectors. 141000kms. Non return fuel valve fitted between filter assembly and injector pump. Cheers stu.


first question is it smoke or steam ? if if ligers in the air behind you as you drive with little dissipation or if its steam it will dissapear more quickly . either way , head gasket is first . once saw a car do that excessive engine oil put in by owner . giant flumes of white smoke . if you ever want a true smoke scren to get away then adding about 2 to 4 quarts of oil extra . man it is something to see
