Q: Head bolt torque

asked by on

Need to know the torque process for the 1.4 l ecotec in the 2012 crude Ltz

My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The cylinder head tightening sequence and tightening torque must be done correctly to ensure no damage to the engine. If there are any questions regarding the sequence or torquing procedure we recommend contacting a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to assist in the repair. The tightening sequence is center-outward in an x type pattern. The bolts are angle torqued so a torque angle gauge or torque angle wrench must be used. The torque spec is 26 Ftlbs or 35Nm with a torque angle of 180 degrees.
