Re: Coolant Around Head Bolt
In any case , the bolt needs sealant even if you torqued. To avoid a good stream of coolant when you remove that bolt, I would suggest you drain coolant to the bolt level, you can monitor this in the radiator with cap off.
Apply the thread sealant and torque that bolt down.
I would check other bolts if possible as they could be short of torque value also. I know it's a pain but the other bolt torque need to be what you applied on the problem bolt.
