SOURCE: intake to head bolt torque

Intake bolt torque is 11-14 foot pounds. Note:
to torque bolts & nuts, start in center using
crisscross pattern working outward. And as Far as the sealant goes, you shouldn't need any additional sealant since the new gasket has sealant.(just make sure both surfaces are clean an free of oil.) sometimes if the head or the block show signs of pitting on the matteing surfaces then you could use a litttle of that cooper spray gasket to coat the new gasket.

SOURCE: Craftsman 3.5 hp portable air compressor keeps blowin head gasket

I would say the head or block is warped. Use Majic Marker to cover the mating surfaces , the head can be rubbed on a flat surface like a cast iron table saw to find the high spots, or the head can be rubbed on the block.
Careful work with a good flat file will remove the high spots.
The torque value sounds low even for an aluminum block, you could check with a small engine shop to get their opinion.

SOURCE: blown head gasket .... ran the car hot

sealers usually end up costing you more in the long term than the short term. these sealers react to heat and air. so you end up doing nothing more than plugging up you radiator, water passage ports, water pumps get damaged. causing more over heating problems than they solve. no i would go for what the shop gave you as a quote. that seems a pretty reasonable quote for the position you are in.

SOURCE: my 2001 Cadillac Deville got head gasket leak, how

Hello: You add the sealer to the tank on the passenger side under the hood. I don't recommend this as a proper repair. You may create problems with reducing the flow of coolant through the radiator. The best way is to replace the head gaskets. The tank has a radiator cap on it.

SOURCE: Low coolant light stays on. Changed sensor. Still

I had a similar problem. Replaced head gasket, but low coolant light stayed on. My problem was air in the system. A flush and fill kit may work, however, I had a local shop do a "flush and fill" and the problem remained. What I did... With vehicle running, and radiator cap off, bring engine to operating temperature. Increase rpms slightly above idle until coolant can be seen moving in radiator (thermostat open). Add small amounts of coolant, keeping the radiator level just below overflow hole in cap area. In my case, after about 15 minutes at slightly above idle rpms, a large pocket of air escaped. I topped off radiator, installed cap, and let engine cool. Problem has not returned in last six months. *Note coolant is VERY HOT, and if rpms fluctuate, coolant will expel quickly from radiator. Also, when the air pocket escaped, coolant also sprays out. Use caution to avoid being burned.

Do I have to use additional sealer on a metal head gasket for a 1995 Toyota tercel 1.5 dohc?


Did you have the head shaved? If not it is warped and will not seal. To answer you no, it is rare that any sealer is used on any gaskets on most engine parts. There are a few places where oil pans meet seals or valve covers with over head cams that do, but most modern engines do not need sealant on quality gaskets unless there is surface damage.
You did not mention if you torqued correctly and use new head bolts. This is considered very important.

2001 jetta blown Head gasket what can I do


Blown head gasket is a big job, I have had great success using some of the head gasket sealers, These products are not 100 percent for sure fix but work most of the time if the directions are followed correctly. Bars liquid glass has fixed the head gaskets in two cars ive owned when it works, it a permenant seal. Follow directions, and its best to remove the thermostate when using head gasket sealers.

I have an 85 hilux petrol 4wd it only has to last until xmas can i use any gasket sealer as well as replacing head gasket


IF you clean the head and block properly then the head gasket will have its own sealer in the gasket. The secret is to torque the head bolts down in the correct sequence . I do head tensions in 4 stages and this gives the gasket a chance to even out under the head

Chev s10 1998 over heating water in oil can i do a quick fix with gasket sealer an still drive truck until i can afford to replace gaskets


Over the years I have seen quite a number of sealers advertised to repair gaskets etc. There are newer ones out that make the same claims (also expensive @ about $100). Though it is possible that they work, I have no idea for how long. As always, the best cure for a cylinder head gasket problem is still to actually do the repair.
Regardless of how you correct the problem, make certain that you drain the oil and filter or you will be looking at a bearing failure shortly.

I have a 94 gs300. does a felpro head gasket need gasket sealer when installed?


You should never use any kind of sealer on a head gasket. Just make sure both mating surfaces are clean and dry.

Specs on torquing head bolts on 1988 pontiac lemans aka daewoo lemans aka passport optima. also do i need gasket sealer anywhere or gaskets only when doing a head job on this car?


firstly tighten in sequence to 20Nm all round, then tighten to 30Nm all round,then tighten 90 degrees all round, and finally tighten a further 90 degrees all round. if you taken head off you should replace gasket or just use gasket sealer if you cant replace, just replace the head bolts, dont reuse or they may break

Oil in overflow of radiator.


If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.
