The best place to find it is the service manual. if not avail. i usually 1, tighten it to ~10-20Nm in a 'outwards spiral' fashion, ie start tightening from centre bolts outwards. 2, spiral tighten by 1/4 turn, 3, another 1/4 turn, and 4, final 1/4 turn.

Changed head gasket and cam seal twice and the car run two days without leaking oil now it is leaking oil on right side of car


Are you tightening all the bolts to torque specification? If not that can be an issue for your leaks. Also did you have the head resurfaced before installing the new head gasket? If not it could be slightly warped and leaking.

Oil leak


nstalling the Oil Pan
  • Make sure the sealing surface of the pan's rim is flat and capable of providing a seal before reinstalling it.
  • Check the flanges of a steel oil pan for warpage.
  • Use a straightedge or lay the pan, flange side down, on a flat surface with a flashlight underneath it to spot uneven edges.

  • Carefully check the flange around bolt holes. Minor distortions can be corrected with a hammer and block of wood.
  • If the flanges are too bent to be repaired in this manner, the pan should be replaced.
Once it has been determined that the flanges are flat, install the oil pan with a new gasket.
  • Tighten the screws evenly. Do not tighten any of the screws all of the way until all of the screws are started in their threads.
  • Use an inch-pound torque wrench to torque the screws to specifications.
  • Look this up in the service manual. Specifications usually range from 60 to 150 inch-pounds. This is not very much, but it compresses the gasket and allows it to work properly.

Oil leak in engine.Replaced the head gasket now oil is leaking somewhere in the engine. put in new head bolts 2 times but couldn't torque to specs. Why is there oil leaking and how can I find out what the...


Well, you might check the real main seals. Also, if you cant torque them to specs, the head could still be leaking. Your best bet is to lay a piece of cardboard under it and see where the oil drips from. Then trace the leak up from there. Otherwise, raking it to a shop might be your only resort. Good Luck.

Nissan 300zx twin turbo, VG30DETT motor. coolant in oil. just finished rebuilding the motor and block and heads have been decked and squared to meet up perfectly. head bolts have been torqued down...


if car has a oil cooler that uses coolant to lower oil temp. check that, if not you might want to get a coolant psi tester and try locating leak that way. but my expierence is that a head gasket problems cause this also if block was bored and machined that could also be the issue.

1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!


The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

Gasket is between cylinder head and engine block. If u have oil in the coolant or vice versa, or overheating then u most likely have a bad head gasket
