Disconnect the left-hand camshaft position (CMP) sensor.
Remove residual coolant from the cylinder head. Place a drain tray under the engine.
Use a syringe with a length of thin rubber pipe connected, to drain the residual coolant from the outlet pipe water-way.
A suitable syringe is Snap On YA 745.
Remove the cylinder head. Place cloth around the area of the cylinder head to absorb coolant spillage, when removing the head.
Remove the bolts (10xM10 and 2xM8) which secure the cylinder head.
With assistance, remove the cylinder head.
Remove the cylinder head gasket. Note how the gasket is fitted and remove it.
Remove and discard the cloth, placed previously to absorb coolant spillage.
Wipe up any leaked coolant.
Remove the coolant drain tray from under the engine.
Remove and discard the gasket from the downpipe catalyst. Clean the gasket faces of the catalyst and the exhaust manifold.
Clean cylinder head and cylinder block gasket faces. Ensure that all threaded holes in the cylinder block face are clean and free from oil.
Clean and inspect the cylinder head bolts. They may be re-used on two occasions. When re- used, each bolt head should be marked with one dot from an automatic centre punch.
Clean and inspect all relevant components and mating faces.
Install a new gasket to the downpipe catalyst flange.
Install a new cylinder head gasket.
With assistance install the cylinder head. Engage the cylinder head with the dowels on the block face, and the exhaust manifold flange with the studs on the downpipe catalyst.
Install the cylinder head bolts, hand tight only.
Tighten the cylinder head bolts in stages, in the sequence shown, using the following procedure: Stage 1 - tighten all M10 bolts in sequence, to 20 Nm.
Stage 2 - tighten all M10 bolts in sequence, to 35 Nm.
Stage 3 - tighten all M10 bolts in sequence by 90 .
Stage 4 - tighten all M10 bolts in sequence by 90 .
Please let me know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
