2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 1

Inspection - This is Gregg's Car. The water pump seized and blew the timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the head because there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But other than a TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at http://www.reinsmith.net

Torque head bolts Dodge Neon 2.0
Demonstration of torquing the cylinder head on a 2000 SOHC 2.0 L Dodge Neon. The steps for torque are 20 lbs/ft, 50 lbs/ft, 50 lbs/ft plus 1/4 turn. You can use a degree wheel for the extra 90 degree, but I'm pretty good at guessing that 90. I ran out of poop to single arm the rest of the 90's so I turned of the camera and finished the job. Remember to back off your torque wrench when you store it back in the box. Always check your specifications and follow factory recommended procedures and specs when assembling an engine.Use the factory recommended torque sequence so that you pull the head down straight when tightening the bolts. http://www.justanswer.com/uploads/drivefast1971/2009-06-15_024532_60.gif
