Nissan pulsar 1988 excessive oil consumption only when warmed up (1 paint for 50 miles)


That is excessive, either you have a massive leak somewhere or you are burning it. Sounds like a head gasket to me, regardless as to how many times it was done. This is not an easy thing to replace or seat properly. also, each bolt must be set to a specific torque, if not, then the head will not sit evenly and oil will leak for sure. If you are inexperienced, this should be done by a professional.

How do you Replace Head Gasket for 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE ?


Big difference between valve cover gasket and head gasket. To replace head gasket, you must dissamble top end of engine and send the head out to be resurfaced and then install new head gasket. If it is a leaking valve cover it is much easier. Simply dissasemble and then clean valve cover and top of head from all debris and remove all old gasket material. Tighten back down in sequence and do not over tighten. these small bolts can be overtightened easily so go in sequence just like when you tighten lug nuts by skipping one as you go around. 10mm bolts require about 10 pounds or less torque.

Hi Eduardo:
Check this information (click over pics for zoom)...

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.

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.

Head gasket repair on a holden astra 88 model how do you talk down the head when putting it back on


Torquing the heads is usually done in a particular pattern and usually in 3 stages most of the time 1/3 of the torque value at each stage. You should consult the service manual for the procedure and numbers. Your local library has access to online service manuals for most cars, but you can only access them at your local branch.

Head bolt torque specs needed for 96 tbird 3.8


Head bolts are torque to yeild so you MUST use new bolts.
Tighten cylinder head retaining bolts in numerical sequence in three steps as follows:
  1. 20 Nm (15 lb-ft).
  1. 40 Nm (30 lb-ft).
  1. 50 Nm (37 lb-ft)
Loosen retaining bolts one at a time two to three revolutions and retighten as follows:

Long bolts:
  • Tighten to 40-50 Nm (30-37 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Short Bolts:
  • Tighten to 20-30 Nm (15-22 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Here is a pic of the sequence
