    Ok here is how to tighten and the torque sequence.





    1. Install the cylinder head with a new gasket.


    2. Torque the cylinder head bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm) plus an additional 90 degree turn.

    here is the left cylinder head how to tighten the bolts sequence.








    Here is the right.






    I do not know why the tightening sequences is different but that is the way the book says to do it.



    If you have any questions please ask.

    Left side is if you look at the motor and the right is the right. That is the only diagrams I have. I would start in the middle and work your way out. Sorry I do not have any more pictures to give you. I would also go to 25 Torque pounds then tighten them the rest after.

What is the cylinder head tighten torque


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

SPECIFICATION LOOKUPS

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'.

Cylinderhead torque settings


I'm not sure what engine you have in your 95 grand am SO I will give you both the 4cyl and 6cyl Specs. Also you didn't ask for the torque sequence. I will include that as well for both. 2.3 DOHC Quad 4cyl: Torque sequence---> front ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' of engine ' 8 6 2 4 10 ' Step 1: torque bolts 1 thru 6 (26 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Step 2: torque bolts 7 & 8 (15 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Step 3: torque bolts 9 & 10 (22 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION *** This engine uses "Torque To Yield" (TTY) head bolts that means they permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed in order to obtain proper torque. 3.1 liter V6 Torque sequence--> ' 6 2 3 7 ' ' 5 1 4 8 ' Step 1: torque bolts in sequence to 33 Ft/Lbs Step 2: turn an additional 90 degrees Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION *** This particular engine uses "Torque To Yield" head bolts(TTY) (that means the bolts permanently stretch during the initial installation.) You MUST use NEW head bolts when replacing or reinstalling the cylinder head in order to obtain the proper torque.

Install the cylinder head with a new gasket. Apply clean engine oil to the bolt threads and seats, then install the bolts with washers (beveled edges up) in the correct position. Note that bolts 4, 5, 12 and 13 measure 5.00 in. (127mm), and are longer than the others. The other bolts are 4.17 in. (106mm) long.

Tighten the bolts in the proper sequence, in the following stages:
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 43 ft. lbs. (59 Nm).
Loosen all bolts completely.
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 40-47 ft. lbs. (54-64 Nm). Or, if you have an angle torque wrench available, tighten them an additional 60-65 degrees.


Hope this helps; remember to rate this answer. Good luck.

Correct pressure for torque the head of mazda pickup 1998


Since you didn't say which engine you have, I've pulled torque specs for 3 different engines. Also, since I can't include a diagram showing the relative locations of the numbered head-bolt locations, it would be a good idea for you to purchase a vehicle specific repair guide that will show this info.


Take particular note about the TTY (Torque to Yield) bolts used on 2 of the 3 engines shown. It is said that new head bolts MUST BE USED when head is replaced or re-installed to obtain the proper torque.



B2500 4 Cylinder

Torque sequence: --------- ' 10 6 2 4 8 ' front ' ' ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' -----------Step 1: torque in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque again in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 3: final tighten all bolts an additional 90 to 100 degrees recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.







B3000 3.0 6 Cylinder

Torque sequence ---------- ' 6 4 2 8 ' ' ' ' 5 1 3 7 ' ---------- Step 1: torque to 59 Ft/Lbs Step 2: loosen in sequence (1) full turn Step 3: torque to 41 Ft/Lbs Step 4: torque to 73 Ft/Lbs









B4000 4.0 6 Cylinder

Torque sequence --------- ' 5 1 3 7 ' ' ' ' 6 4 2 8 ' --------- Step 1: torque cylinder head bolts in sequence to 26 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque cylinder head bolts to 56 Ft/Lbs Step 3: turn cylinder head bolts in sequence an additional 90-degrees recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.


Good luck with this job!
