Make, model , year, and accesories you have added, will help?I need to find out if it is worth doing my self(don't have tools) or send to a respected mechanic to do the work. If I send it out how much should I expect to pay for the service.
Hi, I have tried that before with mixed results. The one thing I would like to know from someone more experienced than I is: should I loosen the head bolts then retorque them or just tighten them to specs? (My bet is to loosen first but in the past I haven't done that, too scared! Haha! Thanks! Kevinit would be best to retorque the head, fixes the problem of leaky seals enough of the time to make a try worthwhile.
Hey rocker, thx for the reply. The reason I was thinking that loosening first would be better is that it always takes some amount of force to "break" the threads free. I think this could easily be more than the torque setting, maybe much more even though the bolt could then be twisted quite a bit after break free. That has been my connundrum but in the past, like I said, I was wary of loosening the head in this manner. What you think? Thanks!Either way should not be problem
