A friend of mine has a 2001, the problem is that he developed a small coolant leak from the front of the head between the head and block. We re-torqued the bolts and it helped, but still seeps! Anyone ever just replaced the bolts and torqued them to factory specs? Can you get the rear ones out? Are studs a better way to go? Obviously he should remove the head do some work, we are hoping for something less stressful!

Let me guess, the seepage is right under the t'stat housing? CTcummins24v is correct. Pull the head, get it cleaned up and a new gasket. The gasket should come with a stretch gauge to check the bolts.
