Use no sealer or treatment of any kind. To torque the head bolts you must go in a military rotation.Think of it as a spiral starting with one of the center bolts and working your way out to the ends. The torquing should be done in three stages, fist bring them down to 30 foot lbs. then going from the center again, this time in the opposing spiral, bring them down to 60 foot lbs. And lastly, bring them down to the specified tightness in your manual usually around 85-90 foot lbs. On the thrid sequence return to the original spiral direction that you started out with. Good luck, Dana

Replacing head gasket


Hi
firstly, do you have the equipment to change the head gasket.
ie: a suitable torque wrench for the head bolts?
do you know how to re-time the engine having removed and refitted the timing belt(which you should renew)
I`mj looking at the worshop manual now and I presume you know how to strip an engine
The important part is when you replace the head (having made sure it`s not warped or cracked) and having cleaned all mating surfaces, you should have ten cylinder head bolts the tightening sequence is ____________________________
8 6 2 4 10


9 3 1 5 7
_____________________________

the torque settings are assuming you`rs is a M.40 engine is stage1 30 n/m stage 2: angle tighten 90 degrees stage 3 angle tighten 90 degrees.

Good Luck

My truck is blowing white smoke and will idle for about twenty minutes and then cut itself off.


white smoke means there is a presence of water/coolant at your combustion chamber. common cause of this is blown head gasket and/or small cracks/holes in your cylinder head. if this happens, water will not circulate properly in your engine thus the vehicle will shutdown due to over heating.

what to do:
1. replace head gasket. this is quite not a DYI fix since it will require some tools like torque wrenches and some knowledge on timing.
2. if replacing the head gasket does not solve your problem, have your cylinder head resurfaced at the nearest car service center. resurfacing makes sure that your cylinder head perfectly fits with the crank case.

16. Remove the gasket pieces from the cylinder block top surface and cylinder head bottom surface. NOTE: Make sure that the gasket pieces do not fall in the engine.

INSTALLATION

1. Clean all gasket surfaces of the cylinder block and the cylinder head.
2. Install a new cylinder head gasket onto the cylinder head assembly. Apply sealant to the gasket and do not reuse the old cylinder head gasket.


3. Install the cylinder head bolts. Starting at top center, tighten all cylinder head bolts in sequence as shown in illustration, using the Cylinder Head Bolt Wrench (09221 - 32001) or equivalent. Repeat the procedure, re-tightening all cylinder head bolt to the specified torque. (torque spec is Cold Engine 105-115 Nm (76-83 ft lb) )
4. Install the timing belt tensioner pulley.
5. Install the timing belt on the camshaft sprocket, making sure that the tension side is tightened by turning the camshaft sprocket in reverse, all timing marks are in alignment.
6. Adjust the timing according to "Timing Belt"
7. Install the rocker cover and tighten the bolts to the specified torque. Tightening torque: Rocker cover belt:

2.5-3.5 Nm (25-35 kg.cm, 2-3 ft. lbs.)

8. Install the timing belt cover.
9. Install the new intake manifold gasket and the intake manifold. Tighten the nuts and bolts to the specified torque.
10. Install the new exhaust manifold gasket and the exhaust manifold. Tighten the exhaust manifold attaching nuts to the specified torque.

    I have a pontiac and i keep blowing head gasket on number one cylinder. I have installed new heads and gasket lasted about five years. I was wondering what the correct head bolt torque is for a 1995...


    cylinder head bolts, step one;33 ft. lbs, second step rotate an additional 90-degrees (1/4 turn). do not put any oil or sealant on gasket. the gasket should seal itself if torqued properly.
