What is the cylinder head torque 3.8l
First off, these bolts are designed to stretch when they are installed; so do not reuse the original bolts; always use new.
With that in mind, the first torque setting is 37ftlbs make sure to use the correct sequence always working from the center out, and one side across to the other. Once all the bolts are set to 37, go through and tighten to 120ftlbs using the same sequence center and across working your way out.

My speedometer is not working is it a cable? a
Yes it is the cable type. The instrument cluster must first be removed. Depress the retaining clip on the back of the cluster to release the speedometer cable. Once the end of the speedometer drive cable is exposed, grip the inner cable with pliers and draw it out of the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal, but lubricate the entire cable. Use special speedometer cable lubricant, Not oil, for this purpose. Insert the cable into the housing using a twisting movement until the lower end is felt to engage with the pinion gear at the transmission. You can also check the Pinion Gear at the transmission, That is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Some times these small nylon gears will strip out caused from no lubrication in the speedometer cable housing. If the above does not solve your problem you may need to change out the cluster itself to obtain a good working speedometer head. Good Luck and Happy New Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

How could you tell if the power stearing pump is
If the power steering pump is on the way out, usually the steering will become jerky when turning. It may also develop a whine noise in the engine compartment. The fluid will appear foamy as it aerates and mixes with the fluid. Good news power steering pumps rarely fail, unless run out of fluid. It is more likely the pump front pulley seal is leaking (you should see a tract of fluid along the padding in the hood liner). The other possibility is a hose, usually the high pressure hose leaking at a compression fitting (where the rubber meets the steel ends). Check the fluid level and condition. Check the hood liner for traces of leaks, check underneath for drips, or extremely wet areas along the 2 hoses.
