SOURCE: need head bolt,intake upper and lower and rocker arm torque lbs.

Head bolts--------- 22 ft lbs.
Intake upper------ 18 ft lbs.
Intake lower------- 10 ft lbs. Tighten vertical bolts first, the diagonal bolts, failure to do this will result in an oil leak.
As far as the rocker arm bolts, they have to be adjusted with the valves closed, tighten down just enough to turn the push rods with your fingers with slight tension.
This is out of a Technical Specifications Manual.

Step one: Torque to 11 ft lbs then tighten an additional 90 degrees of bolt head rotation. Some guys don't fuss with the torque specs and just get them good and tight. Either way, be careful, as the heads are aluminum. You do not want to over tighten these bolts

  1. Clean the rocker arms and pedestal bolts in a suitable solution and inspect for wear. Make sure to clean all of the thread adhesive from the rocker arm pedestal bolts.

To install:
  1. If removed, install the pushrods and make sure they seat in the lifter.
On 1998-99 vehicles, the bolts rocker arm bolts are designed to permanently stretch when tightened. The correct part number fastener must be used to replace this type of fastener. Do NOT use a bolt which is stronger in this application. If the proper bolt is not used, the parts will not be tightened correctly, and part or system damage may occur.
  1. Apply a threadlocking compound to the bolt threads before reassembly.
  2. Install the pedestal and rocker arm assemblies, then tighten the retaining bolts as follows:
    1. 1988-92 vehicles: 28 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
    2. 1991-98 vehicles: 19 ft. lbs. (29 Nm), plus an additional 90° with a torque angle meter.
    3. 1999-99 vehicles: 11 ft. lbs. (19 Nm), plus an additional 90° with a torque angle meter.

  3. Install the valve cover(s), as outlined earlier, then connect the negative battery cable.
  4. Start engine and check for fluid leaks and listen for valve train noise.
I hope this helps, and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

On the 3.1L engine you have to remove the push rods to replace the intake manifold gasket. It is possible that you didn't tighten down one rocker arm, or you have it mis-aligned.
