Cylinder Head Removal and Installation CR-V

Cylinder Head Removal and Installation

Please carefully read "Precaution for Handling Sodium-Filled Valves" and follow the instructions as the exhaust valves contain metal sodium- NOTE:

Use fender covers to avoid damaging painted surfaces-

To avoid damage, unplug the wiring connectors carefully while holding the connector portion-

Connect the HDS to the DLC, and monitor ECT SENSOR 1. To avoid damaging the cylinder head, wait until the engine coolant temperature drops below 100 °F (38 °C) before loosening the cylinder head bolts-

Mark all wiring and hoses to avoid misconnection. Also, be sure that they do not contact other wiring or hoses, or interfere with other parts-

19.Cylinder Head - Remove

1- Remove the cylinder head bolts. To prevent warpage, loosen the bolts in sequence, 1/3 turn at a time, repeat the sequence until all bolts are loosened- 2- Remove the cylinder head-

NOTE: How to read the torque specifications- 1.Cylinder Head - Install

1- Clean the cylinder head and engine block surfaces- 2- Install a new coolant separator (A) in the engine block whenever the engine block is replaced- 3- Install the new cylinder head gasket (B) and the dowel pins (C) on the engine block. Always use a new cylinder head gasket- 4- Install the cylinder head on the engine block-

When the new cylinder head bolt is installed

5- Apply new engine oil to the threads and under the bolt heads of all cylinder head bolts- 6- Torque the cylinder head bolts in sequence to 30 N·m (3.1 kgf·m, 22 lbf·ft) with a beam-type torque wrench if possible. When using a preset click-type torque wrench, be sure to tighten slowly and do not overtighten. If a bolt makes any noise while you are torquing it, loosen the bolt and go back to step 5- 7- After torquing, tighten all cylinder head bolts an additional 165 °, in the numbered sequence shown- NOTE:

Tighten the cylinder head bolts to the specified angle, using a commercially available angle gauge-

Remove the cylinder head bolt if you tightened it beyond the specified angle and go back to step 5 of the procedure. Do not loosen it back to the specified angle-

When the cylinder head bolt is reused

8- Apply new engine oil to the threads and under the bolt heads of all cylinder head bolts- 9- Torque the cylinder head bolts in sequence to 30 N·m (3.1 kgf·m, 22 lbf·ft) with a beam-type torque wrench if possible. When using a preset click-type torque wrench, be sure to tighten slowly and do not overtighten. If a bolt makes any noise while you are torquing it, loosen the bolt and go back to step 8- 10- After torquing, tighten all cylinder head bolts an additional 140 °, in the numbered sequence shown- NOTE:

Tighten the cylinder head bolts to the specified angle, using a commercially available angle gauge-

Remove the cylinder head bolt if you tightened it beyond the specified angle and go back to step 8 of the procedure. Do not loosen it back to the specified angle- 2.Rocker Arm Assembly - Install

1- After installation, check that all tubes, hoses, and connectors are installed correctly- 20.Engine Coolant - Refill

21.Fuel Leak (Low Pressure Side) - Check

1- Turn the vehicle to the ON mode, but do not start the engine. After the fuel pump runs for about 2 seconds, the fuel line will be pressurized. Repeat this two or three time, then check for fuel leakage- 22.Fuel Leak (High Pressure Side) - Check

23.Idle Speed - Inspect

24.Ignition Timing - Inspect
