Tighten the cylinder head bolts. Tighten the cylinder head bolts is sequence to 29 Nm (3.0 kgf-m, 22 ft. lbs.). Use a beam-type torque wrench. When using a preset type torque wrench, be sure to tighten slowly and do not overtighten. If a bolt makes any noise while you are torquing it, loosen the bolt and retighten it. Make sure the threads are clean, new heads bolts are best.

Torque specs on the 2000 dodge ram 4x4 2500

Please help me. What torque spec. on which of the bolts or nuts. I really don't know until you tell me.. example: Head bolt, exhaust manifold bolts, injector pump. There a way to make sure that you have the correct bolt/nut torque specification. Bolt needs to cleaned with all foreign material removed, also the bolt holes needs to be cleaned out the same as the bolts. Use a thread straightener on the bolt/nut and bolt holes. Once the bolts and nuts and bolts holes are cleaned. Oil the bolt/nut and bolt hole before torquing to specification....GB..stewbison

What are the torque specs for the main & rod bearing caps on a 2000 chevy s-10 2.2?

The head bolts are toque to yield on these engines, meaning that once they have been torqued to specification, they must be replaced when removed. If it is an OHV engine (solid push rods with and internal camshaft and rockers on the head studs) there is a sequence to tightening the head bolts. First, tighten all bolts in a circular motion, starting from the center and working outwards. I prefer to go in a clockwise rotation, but as long as it is in the correct order, rotation is not important. The long bolts must first be tightened to 22 lb/ft and the short ones to 23 lb/ft. Next, in the same order as before, tighten the long bolts to 43 lb/ft and the short bolts to 46 lb/ft. Finally, in the same order as the previous two steps, torque all the bolts an ADDITIONAL 100 degrees (10 degrees past 1/4 turn). A torque angle meter is required to do this properly and to specification. A routine of mine that is not necessary, but I have found helps prevent warping when torquing the head, is when torquing to final spec of 100 degrees, first tighten 60 degrees on all the bolts in the same order as the first two steps, then an additional 40 degrees all around in the same order.

Tightening order:
8 4 1 5 9
7 3 2 6 10

Torque and sequence to Intake Manifold for 3.3L Nissan Xterra 2000

Hi El Faraon,
I believe that you're dealing with 12 mm bolts and nuts....THESE ARE NOT THE SPECS FOR YOUR ENGINE, but I believe that if you use them you'll be close....Tighten in three stages up to 22nm....choose the bolts from the centre of the manifold and circle outwards until you reach the last one.....It may be a good idea to draw an overhead or plan view of the unit, marking out the bolt positions.....Start at the centre and mark the sequence and follow that....What is important is starting at the centre, so that nothing becomes warped....

Hope this helps,

Regards, Johngee10
