SOURCE: head gasket 'blown' on 94 Nissan Cefiro, 2.5L, 24

if you get a haynes repair manual and follow it step by step everything should go fine. or clintons. if you have questions about what its telling you to do then that would be a good thing to ask. the problem is there are alot of different designs for engines and it could be affected and it could not be. but if your not sure you definitly need a repair manual. it would tell you everything but it will guide you in the right direction

SOURCE: replacement of a head gasket on 2.5 liter nissan altima 2002

frajogag: First off, be aware that these bolts are "torque to yield" bolts (streach bolts). What this means is that instead of torqueing the head bolts to a specific torque specification, they are torqued down to a set spec and then tightened by rotating the bolts a certain angle, like 90 degrees. and all of them are turned the same amount.
This means that the shanks of the bolts must be checked to make sure they are not too thin (or the bolt has already stretched beyond limits and is prone to snap if used)
Here is how you check the bolts. Measure the bolt using a micrometer, at the base, or within the first 13mm from the end where it threads in. Then go to about 10mm before the threads end heading toward the top of the bolt. There should not be more than a 0.23mm (.0091 inch) or less difference or the bolt should be discarded.
Torque the bolts down to 98.1Nm ( 72.ft lb)
Looking at the head from the side, so you are looking at the full length from side to side, I will number the head bolts in this fashion.
#1 & 2 are directly in front of you and in the center of the cylinder head crossing it width wise.
#3&4 are to the left of #1&2, / #5&6 are to the right of #1&2
#7&8 are to the left of #3&4 / #9$10 are to the right of #5&6
Now, you have the sequence.
After the initial pull, back off all the bolts in the same sequence and then retorque them to 36 Nm ( 28 ft lb)
Using a torque angle wrench or having the ability to accurately judge turning angles. Rotate (clockwise) to a 75 degree angle. do this to all the bolts using the sequence I had provided.
Rotate the bolts (clockwise) 75 degrees again on all bolts in the same sequence. The proceedure is complete!

Start the car up when it is cold and rev the engine up for 30 seconds,loosen up the radiator cap and see if there is pressure there..If there is you probably have a bad head gasket...Caution do not open cap if engine is warm...

Why head bolts torque are different from 2003 and 2005 1.8 nissan sentra?


I have never seen a code specifically identifying a blown head gasket. I checked the service manual and the procedure is the same.

4. Tighten cylinder head bolts (1) to (10) in numerical order as shown in 5 steps. Cylinder head bolts Step 1: 29.4 Nm (3.0 kg-m, 22 ft. lbs.) Step 2: 58,8 Nm (6.0 kg-m, 43 ft. lbs.) Step 3: 0 Nm (0 kg-m, 0 ft. lbs.) (loosen) Step 4: 27.4 - 31.4 Nm (2.8 - 3.2 kg-m, 21 - 23 ft. lbs.) Step 5: 50° - 55° (target: 50°) clockwise
images-xozrttqlr3qpoa0t2tmccx0o-1-0.png To confirm it is a head gasket, do a compression and/or leak down test. Wouldn't hurt to pressure test your cooling system as well.

2003 nissan altima has water on spark plugs


look for a crack in the cylinder head or a blown head gasket. If the gasket is bad then have the head ground flat at a machine shop before replacing the gasket.

Oil on spark plugs


If the oil is on the tips of the spark plugs, you have a blown head or head gasket. If the oil is on the outside of the plugs the valve cover gasket on that side ids leaking oil...replace the gasket!

2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool


My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.

Paid $500 to replace fuel sender unit...made car worse....then they replaced fuel pressure system...made car even worse...now they say my head gasket is blown and wanting me to pay $950...can their mi


no their mistakes could not have led to the issue. just their bad diagnostics missed it to begin with. the dealers do not always have the most competent shop. i would usually tell people to stay away from them and use the other shops around. you are not the first that i have heard with problems they cannot diagnose. go get a second opinion from another certified shop.

Head gasket is cracked


there is no connection betwen the doughnut gasket on the outlet of the exhaust manifold and the head gasket. The head gasket is under the cylinder head and does not crack. It may blow due to compression pressure leaking between the head and the block.
Are you sure you don't have a brkoen stud on the exhaust manifold where it mounts to the blcok? Known Nissan isue. The bolts don't stretch when hot and eentaully they all break off. Newer studs do stretch.
