The bolts on a 94 Dodge Intrepid valve cover need to be very tight. You should tighten to 12 N*m or 105 inch pounds.

There are valve cover bolts around the perimeter of the valve cover. You want these tight but not as tight as you can get them.

15 to 20 inch pounds should do it, or what feels tight with your fingers.

Check the specs for the vehicle you are working on (You can find them on the net if you do not have the manual) and the torque requirements will be there. Do not over torque the bolts as removing a broken valve cover bolt is a pain. Good luck.

24 Foot Lbs on clutch cover bolts. 85 Foot Lbs on flywheel bolts. Use lock tight on both set of bolts.

how tight should we tight the head gasket bolt for a ford f150 Need to know the engine size.

There will a torque setting but just make sure they are tight. Not super tight or anything just snug them up and they give it a little more. They dont need to be on tight seeing as how thin the bolts are they will break.

Yes, they should be as tight as you can get with a 6 inch long wrench

The skirt should be long enough to cover the body up to feet and should not be tight and figuring the body and what underneath. Otherwise it is better to wear a Blouse louse and long to cover the upper tight skirt part.

most valve gaskets should be tightened with i believe about 1- 3 lbs of torque,however most torque wrenches don't go that low so barring a wrench just good and hand tight will suffice,be warned that too tight will shear off your valve cover bolts and trust me that's a pain

User Avatar

the bolts should be very very very loose. in other words, don't tighten at all! is this the 2 one at either end that u are on about if you are what would you do just tighten them till bolts grab thanks

Clean them off and try blue loctite on the threads...

The torque specs for a Toyota Camry cylinder head is 60 pounds for the inside bolts and 50 pounds for the site bolts. The cylinder head bolts should be tight from and to end alternating.

Take off the valve cover. there is about 8 to 12 bolts. just take it off and take off the old gasket, then clean off old gasket residue with a razor knife, then install the new one and put the cover back on. the bolts dont need to be extremely tight.

Just did mine on my 300 cu in Ford 1982. Remove any parts that might be in the way, breather, gas line over the valve cover etc. Remove the bolts around the outside of the valve cover. Remove valve cover. Remove old gasket. Clean valve cover. Install new gasket and re-install cover. Replace bolts. Finger tight bolts first then tighten. If you do not have a torque wrench, carefully tighten down bolts alternating from one side to the other tightening them all down evenly. Do not overtighten, they will snap off into the head.

They don't usually need any special effort, but a little loctite 242 would help.

It's not critical. Just tight the bolts enough not to get lose by vibration and to let the cover press on the seal. Dont overtight, the cylinder head is made of aluminum which is very easy to damage the thread in, especially considering that the bolts are very narrow. M. Scosyrev.

Theres a pulley tensionor, loosen the bolts to it, pull it tight and retighten bolts, but dont over tighten the belt... there should be alittle play but not much, because if its to tight, it can break, to lose and it will come off, once you tighten tensionor, it should have about a quarter of an inch of play.

There are two screws on the bottom of the cover. You should have just enough room to fit a screwdriver in between the nose of the car and the cover without scratching the paint. It might be tight, but the cover should give enough for you to get tools in there.

User Avatar

They should be snug, as in tight but not tight to the point you feel uncomfortable.

User Avatar

Nothing good. Tighten the bolts and this becomes a mute issue.

User Avatar

They all must be torqued at a certain spec. None will be loose.

User Avatar

You need to start by adjusting the middle chain . At the front of the center chain is an eccentric , loosen the two bolts and rotate it to tighten . should be as tight as you can get it . After you do the center then you do the front .There is an eccentric for the front chain also . It should be as tight as you can also .

You should wrap soup for take out in a plastic container with a tight fitting lid. Or, you can pour the soup into a bowl and cover it with Clingfilm.
