Generally you torque them all down once in sequence and do it once more to check for good measure to have them all correct

### Head torque for a 2007 Kia Spectra

All Kia Spectras use the 2.0L 4 cylinder engine, and that engine has two different size cylinder head bolts that each require their own torque spec. Use the following torque sequence (see picture) and tighten them down in three steps. You will need a torque angle gauge or some way of knowing how far you've tightened the bolt for steps 2 & 3.

Apply a light coat of engine oil on the threads and under the heads of the bolts before torqueing.

M10 bolts: First step = 16.6*19.5 lb-ft, second step = Turn another 60-65 degrees, 3rd step = Turn another 60-65 degrees

M12 bolts: First step = 20.3-23.1 lb-ft, second step = Turn another 60-65 degrees, 3rd step = Turn another 60-65 degrees

Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck!

### 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:

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'.

### Lookin for head torque specs and sequence

Torque sequence ----------- ' 9 7 3 1 5 ' ' 8 4 2 6 ' ----------- Step 1: torque in sequence to 45 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque in sequence to 65 Ft/Lbs Step 3: torque in sequence to 65 Ft/Lbs again plus 1/4 turn Step 4: Torque small bolt in rear of head to 25 Ft/Lb Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) thatpermanently stretch during the initial installation.New head bolts must be used when cylinder head isreplaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.

### Can you tell me the torque spec.on head bolts for a 1985 ltd 3.8 thank you

Six IN LINE - 6L

Fig.: Cylinder head torque sequence - 6 -cylinder engine

Cylinder head torquing should proceed in three steps and in the prescribed order. Tighten them first to 50-55 ft. lbs. (65-71 Nm), then give them a second tightening to 60-65 ft. lbs. (78-84 Nm). The final step is to 70-75 ft. lbs. (91-97 Nm), at which they should remain undisturbed.

Six IN V - 6V

Fig.: Cylinder head bolt torque sequence - 6 -cylinder engine

Tighten the head, according to the illustrated sequence in three progressive steps. Tighten the bolts to 50-55 ft. lbs. (68-74 Nm), then 60-65 ft. lbs. (81-88 Nm) and finally to 75 ft. lbs. (102 Nm).

Hope this helps (remember to rate and commene this answer).

Step 3: Bolts 1 - 8 (again) to 88 N·m (65 ft. lbs.)
Step 4: Bolts 1 - 8 turn an additional 1/4 Turn. (Do not use a torque wrench for this step.)
NOTE: Bolt torque after 1/4 turn should be over 122 N·m (90 ft. lbs.) If not, replace the bolt.

Tighten head bolt number 9 Cylinder Head Bolts Location and Tightening Sequence to 33 N·m (25 ft. lbs.) after head bolts 1 - 8 have been tighten to specifications.

1. Clean both gasket surfaces of the cylinder block and cylinder head. 2. Verify the identification marks on the cylinder head gasket. 3. Install the gasket so that the surface with the identification mark faces toward the cylinder head. 4. Tighten the bolts to the specified torque in the sequence shown below. Cylinder head bolt M10 : 25Nm (250kg.cm, 18lb.ft)+(60°- 65°)+(60°- 65°) M12 : 30Nm (300kg.cm, 22 lb.ft)+(60°- 65°)+(60°- 65°)
