Hope this helps.
Head layout red O = cylinder.
Bolts 1 through 8 require clean oil added to threads.
* requires sealant added to threads.
Left bank shown, right bank is a mirror image.
Head bolts; Torque in sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, 9*,10*,11*,12*
Torque using the following steps:
First step; torque bolts 1-8, to 20 ft. lbs.
Double check all bolts 1-8 are still at 20 ft. lbs.
Torque bolts 9-12 to 10 ft. lbs.
Second step; rotate bolts 1-8, 90°.
Third step; rotate bolts 1-8, 90° again. Torque bolts 9-12 to 19 ft. lbs.
Intake, Torque in sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 to 105 in. lbs.yes that really helps thank so much. Do you have the intake and exhaust specs also?
My manuals are all 2007-08 manuals. Can't say for 100% sure all are identical. But not sure why they would change.I am going to be doing head gaskets and timing chain replacement. This will be on a 2010 Dodge Nitro 3.7 4x4. Are the above torque specs the same for this year? I am new to this as well. What is the preferred sealant for the head bolts. Does anyone know of a site I could get all the torque specs? Head bolts, exhaust manifold, front timing cover, ect?
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. I have read many articles and forums on this make, model and job. The main thing that I have read about is to be 100% with the timing and take your time with the exhaust manifold bolts #soakinPB. Thanks again.
Thank youMy manuals are all 2007-08 manuals. Can't say for 100% sure all are identical. But not sure why they would change.
I bought the book versions(4 books) of the OEM manual from E-bay(ones used by Dodge service techs), and the OEM Cd from Dodge.
Beware of the E-bay knockoffs, many are incomplete and have pretty major errors in them.
