Diesel Engine Cylinder Head Torque Specifications

Save

A diesel engine's cylinder head is a part of a vehicle's combustion chamber. It connects to the intake and exhaust valves, as well as spark plugs, and allows the flow of air and fuel through the engine. The torque of the cylinder head is important to the engine's performance and longevity. Ford, Chrysler and GM are just three automakers that offer diesel engines with cylinder heads in their vehicles.
