My standard for most of these type of questions is that you should purchse a haynes or chiltons manuel for your vehicle. I will have instructions and diagrams as well as tips to help you do your job, I bought mine on ebay for 17.50.

SOURCE: i want to replace my head gaskets, 91 v6 3.0 4x4

It's a big job if you've never done one before. If you have and are familiar with this type of thing it should take about 8 - 10 hours. I strongly suggest that when you do you take the heads to a machine shop to check them over and HAVE THE VALVES ADJUSTED! They use pain in the neck shim system that has to be adjusted after 60? k otherwise you'll burn a valve.

Hi Amf,
You need to tell us what engine you're working on. The usual way with modern Toyota engines is that they have a basic torque and then an angled tightening. As an example the 5A has a basic torque of 26nm and then a further tightening of 90 degrees followed by a second 90 degrees.
The engine type is very important because the torques vary from engine to engine.

4.3 v6 head gasket torque schematic

first round is at 22lbs, second 44lbs, third 66lbs. make sure you get the order in which the bolts need to be tightened as not to warp the cylinder head, and that sequence is in the package your new head gasket (s) came in. If you cant find it, your local garage will photocopy it for you.

Cylander head side gasket for V6 engine

hi view sonic,

if you're not well verse with engines, i suggest that you leave it to the experts,
this is a delicate matter replacing your cylinder head gasket.

you have to remove a lot of things and it takes a lot of experience in doing this.

you only have one cylinder head gasket.

OR you can try tightening the cylinder head bolts using a torque wrench and see if that would solve your problem.

just remove the cylinder head cover and you can tighten the bolts from there.

tnx 4 using fixya,
