Hi, Brandon TTY fasteners were first used to clamp together bi-metal components such as aluminum and cast iron engines, and aluminum brake knuckles. TTY fasteners are now found on all kinds of vehicles. Unless the "service manual" specifically states not to reuse the fastener it is ok to use them again.
Buying new bolts may seem expensive. After all, the old bolts still look good, but looks can be deceiving. Reusing the old bolts can cause expensive engine failure. Hence only new bolts can provide the even clamping force needed on today's engines.
Why do we need these torque to yield bolts now? We didn't need them in the 1960?s or 70?s! The simple answer is engine materials are different. Aluminum cylinder heads expand at a different rate than cast iron blocks. As an engine warms up, bolted together parts have to move against each other or slide on their gaskets. Therefore the elastic properties of the torque to yield bolts allow movement between parts yet maintain even clamping loads and sealing.
When a shop manual indicates that a bolt is to be discarded and new ones used, they are almost always torqued to yield bolts.
TTY studs can be identified by sight because of the inset hex head at the end of the stud. Always check the service information to get the right amount of torque for a suspension component TTY or otherwise.

If you mean head bolts you need to ask a dealer, if you mean valve cover bolts you can look up torque spec's by bolt size just google it look for a flow chart of spec's.

Isuzu 1999 v6 engine 3.2 DOHC cylinder head


wow , no car body stated, so all online FSM , cant look it up.
as they ask year, body first. or you get nothing..

did your read the FSM first?
seems not.
are they TTY bolts, ? the book says, so. and would be question one

some are not set with torque, but are set by turns angles.
if not TTY bolts (torque to yield)
do you think 15 year old bolts are still good. Id bet not.
those are the first 2 questions, on all cars this old.

at random i picked trooper. and it had a 3.2 option and the
head torque is
Step 1: 21 ft. lbs.
Step 2: 47 ft. lbs.

on the head page the first line reads

"Use new head bolts when installing the cylinder head."

doesnt say way, only that.... you can google the why
or join a real isuzu form and ask, THEY KNOW.

and use the L marked gasket on left bank.

Cylinderhead torque settings


I'm not sure what engine you have in your 95 grand am SO I will give you both the 4cyl and 6cyl Specs. Also you didn't ask for the torque sequence. I will include that as well for both. 2.3 DOHC Quad 4cyl: Torque sequence---> front ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' of engine ' 8 6 2 4 10 ' Step 1: torque bolts 1 thru 6 (26 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Step 2: torque bolts 7 & 8 (15 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Step 3: torque bolts 9 & 10 (22 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION *** This engine uses "Torque To Yield" (TTY) head bolts that means they permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed in order to obtain proper torque. 3.1 liter V6 Torque sequence--> ' 6 2 3 7 ' ' 5 1 4 8 ' Step 1: torque bolts in sequence to 33 Ft/Lbs Step 2: turn an additional 90 degrees Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION *** This particular engine uses "Torque To Yield" head bolts(TTY) (that means the bolts permanently stretch during the initial installation.) You MUST use NEW head bolts when replacing or reinstalling the cylinder head in order to obtain the proper torque.

Correct pressure for torque the head of mazda pickup 1998


Since you didn't say which engine you have, I've pulled torque specs for 3 different engines. Also, since I can't include a diagram showing the relative locations of the numbered head-bolt locations, it would be a good idea for you to purchase a vehicle specific repair guide that will show this info.


Take particular note about the TTY (Torque to Yield) bolts used on 2 of the 3 engines shown. It is said that new head bolts MUST BE USED when head is replaced or re-installed to obtain the proper torque.



B2500 4 Cylinder

Torque sequence: --------- ' 10 6 2 4 8 ' front ' ' ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' -----------Step 1: torque in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque again in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 3: final tighten all bolts an additional 90 to 100 degrees recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.







B3000 3.0 6 Cylinder

Torque sequence ---------- ' 6 4 2 8 ' ' ' ' 5 1 3 7 ' ---------- Step 1: torque to 59 Ft/Lbs Step 2: loosen in sequence (1) full turn Step 3: torque to 41 Ft/Lbs Step 4: torque to 73 Ft/Lbs









B4000 4.0 6 Cylinder

Torque sequence --------- ' 5 1 3 7 ' ' ' ' 6 4 2 8 ' --------- Step 1: torque cylinder head bolts in sequence to 26 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque cylinder head bolts to 56 Ft/Lbs Step 3: turn cylinder head bolts in sequence an additional 90-degrees recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.
