Do you torque spark plugs differently with anti-seize compound on an aluminum head engine?

Yes, anti seize can affect torque specifications by as much as 30%, depending on how it is applied. If there is a torque range, say for spark plugs like 15 - 21 ft lbs, then torque to 15ft lbs and you can rest assured the plug will be driven deeper than it normally would have at 15 ft lbs without anti-seize.

Aluminum is used for cylinder heads and engine blocks to make the entire engine lighter. A lighter engine is desired for a number of reasons, including better gas mileage, better handling, better braking response and better chassis balance. Since the aluminum used in standard engines and cylinder heads does not provide a good surface for high-friction areas, such as valve guides and piston cylinders, where aluminum-to-aluminum surfaces would wear out too quickly, other metals such as steel is used for the aluminum component to slide on. For example, an aluminum piston rides inside a steel liner which is inserted into the aluminum engine block. Since aluminum and steel respond very differently to the heat and cold in an engine, very careful design engineering is required when using these two metals together.

Engine heads are constructed of iron or aluminum.

No, fire engine is not a compound word. fire and engine are to words not together. : ) :P : ) :P Simples : )

Some have aluminum engine blocks and/or cylinder heads, many of the sensors, intake manifolds

Yes.Engine can be made of aluminium.

If the problem is to help engine cooling through the direct transfer of heat out of the piping, the aluminum will be superior to the silicone piping by far. Aluminum is one of the best materials for the conduction of heat.

steel, iron or aluminum

It is an engine made out of aluminum. BMW, as well as other car makers, use aluminium engines in their vehicles.

This engine uses a cartridge filter and is situated in an aluminum cover on the right side from the front of the engine.

The DC compound engine is a blend of the arrangement engine and the shunt engine. It has an arrangement field winding that is associated in arrangement with the armature and a shunt field that is in parallel with the armature.

Copper in all wiring. Aluminum or Iron in engine block. Iron, Steel, Aluminum in engine rotating assembly. Iron, Steel, Aluminum in suspension. Stainless in light bulb sockets, as component fasteners, sometimes brake line, antennae, and engine piston rings, valves or exhaust.

Aluminum alloy or cast iron

User Avatar

Use a magnet. If it sticks to the block, it's cast iron. If it won't stick, the block is cast aluminum.

yes 2.2 4cyl and 4.3 V6 are both aluminum engines

User Avatar

That year would be ALL cast iron. Now the intake is aluminum.

Either steel or aluminum, or both, could be used to make engine pistons. Aluminum is lighter but not as strong.
