DODGE STRATUS TORQUE PROBLEM

2004 Dodge Stratus • 142,000 miles

Hi, iam having problems understanding the head bolt torque specs, for the stratus. Iam confused with step 2 and 3 which says to torque the bolts to 55 foot pounds for step 2 and again for step 3 does this mean to add 55 foot pounds on 55 foot pounds.

No, it means to back off and then re tighten back to 55 lbs

i hope you are using new blots. You cannot re use the old ones
