1. Measure the diameter of each cylinder head bolt at point A and point B.
2. If either diameter is less than 10.6 mm (0.42 in.), replace the cylinder head bolt.
3. Apply new engine oil to the threads and under the bolt heads of all cylinder head bolts.
4. Tighten the cylinder head bolts in sequence to 39 N.m (4.0 kgf.m, 29 lbf.ft). 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 from the first step.
5. After torquing, tighten all cylinder head bolts in two steps (90 per step). If you are using a new cylinder head bolt, tighten the bolt an extra 60 .
NOTE: Remove the cylinder head bolt if you tightened it beyond the specified angle, and go back to step 1 of the procedure. Do not loosen it back to the specified angle.
