What is the cylinder head tighten torque

Have a look on this link. You may be able to find your car:


Cylinder head bolts are usually tightened to around 65 ft-lbs, depending on what the car is.

There's more than 4 cylinder head bolts... There's usually 10 bolts.
There's also a sequence for tightening the bolts:

cylinder head tightening order Google Search

When tightening cylinder head bolts do it in 'stages' and follow the sequence .. ie.. tighten the bolts finger tight first, then torque them up to about 25 ft-lbs. Wait 2 minutes.

Then tighten them to about 45 ft-lbs in sequence. Wait 2 minutes.

Do it again up to about 55 ft-lbs. Wait 2 minutes.

Tighten them up to 65 ft-lbs or whatever is recommended for your car.

Tightening in order/sequence pulls the cylinder head evenly onto the block. Waiting 2 minutes between stages allows a 'stretched' bolt to 'settle'.

Head bolt tighting pattern

opposite corners, and then criss cross your way along. Take at least three passes to get from hand tight to the full torque. Difficult to know without knowing the exact make and model of your vehicle

2003 grand marquis a/c does not come out vents,only defrost and floor

the vacuum harness connected to the back of the control head is not fitting tightly any more. Pull narrow trim panel covering control head. remove 4 screws holding control head on.
Pull control head back. Fit 2 ten inch tie straps so they hold the vacuum harness (5 hose) tight to the control head. You can remove 2 torx bolts to lift bottom cover if necessary.
Vacuum harness is $20 F5VY-19C827-A, but I doubt you will need it.

Hold it tight with your hand to test before you do repair.

Gov't requires system to fail safe to defrost if a vacuum leak occurs.
I can post a photo of repair if necessary.

If that does not fix, Gino in California fixes internal control leaks.

Im replacing the head gasket what is the tourq and sequence for instillation

A torque specification is how tight you must make the bolt by using a torque wrench which measures the tightness you apply to the bolt, ensure you are using new head bolts, a reliable torque wrench, clean the threads of the cylinder head (with tap) where head bolts screw into and when installing bolts ensure they are properly lubricated. And the sequence is the order in which you tighten each bolt.
