Re: Retorquing Heads

I would suggest you retorque the cylinder head bolts following the
procedure in the service manual. You have nothing to lose, and it may
very well stop the oil leak. I have sucessfully done the same job on
a Dodge Colt, with a Mitsubishi engine, and it held up fine over 35K miles
later, when I sold it. Retorquing the bolts is much easier than
taking apart the head to replace the gasket. Also, you may prevent a
completely blown gasket later which may very well happen if left the way it is.
