2008 chevy aveo cover gasket

I replaced the gasket, but now my problem is how to bolt down the gasket cover. I don't know the torque and the sequence on how to do it. I broke one bolt already and going to the dealer to a new bolt, but I already know I'll have to buy the set. I'm driving it now and I dont see any leaks so far, but I'm missing still missing one screw.

Replace the one fastener. Typically you don't have a torque sequence on a valve cover.

Keep an eye on the oil leaks. Problems like this one are why we mechanics don't make enough money. Everyone wants to fix it themselves and we go hungry because it looks easier that it really is. (Not being rude, just stating facts)
I hope you fixed your issue, and don't have any further problems. I would recommend taking it to a pro if you continue having issues. Something seemingly small like this can snowball quick.

Take it from a pro who has been there, done that, have too many teeshirts. :-)

SOURCE: I need the torque specs and sequence on a 1998 chevy 350 vortec

Vortecs are a little different that old school small blocks, grab a Haynes or Chiltons, the cross patterns and specs are simply diagramed. Vortec, as any really, start with 25# then 45# and then final torque which I believe is around 70-75# but to be sure verify with the manual. AutoZones, Murry's, Adavance auto all carry the books, Cheap insurance.

Step 1: 18 lb.-ft.
Step 2: additional 60 degrees.
Step 3: additional 60 degrees.
Step 4: additional 60 degrees.
Step 5: additional 10 degrees.

Each step involves starting at the center two bolts of the head and alternately tightening in a criss-cross pattern, ending with the bolts on the outer edge of the head.

Must sealent be used when replacing valve cover gasket


No do not use any sealant.
The best assurance of no leaks is clean surfaces and the correct even torque on the cover bolts. If the surfaces aren't clean, you will be chasing leaks in the future. Make sure you check the torque setting and use a torque wrench. Uneven or excessive torque may distort the cover and result in leaks.
If you need something to keep the gasket in place while you are fitting then use a thin smear of grease on the metal surface under the gasket.

Replacement instructions rocker cover gasket on lacetti


1.4L
the FSM covers this,
on most cars,
remove screws holding it down
remove old gasket, clean surfaces, with plastic scraper
put on new gasket, with sealant if , stated in FSM.
set the screws to proper torque, most have 6mm screws.
are most not be set more than 89 INCH /POUNDS> thats INCH not FOOT.
but the correct torque is only found in the FSM.
the factory service manual for the 1.4

MY GUESS IS THE 1.4 X14XE ENGINE.

E-TEC II OR CHEVY L95 ENGINE.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_Family_I_engine

Used in the AVEO here and pontiac wave. but no 1.4here (USA)
the 1.6 says, i step 2
Apply a small amount of gasket sealant to the corners of the front camshaft caps and the top of the rear valve cover to cylinder head seal.
and my guess for screws torque was spot on for the 1.6.

i post this to show you to read the FSM ad read the special instuctions. for engine assembly.

I have a 2002 mercury cougar V6 automatic and I know what the problem is. My car needs to have the transmission pan taken out and replaced along with the gasket. My dad and I want to fix it ourselves but...


easy job. Just loosen pan bolts enough to let the fluid start draining from one end. As more drains, keep loosening the pan bolts till you can remove pan and finish draining what's left in the pan. At this time, most people would also change the transmission filter body: it's right on bottom of trans. when the pan is removed, easily accesible. Parts stores sell a kit with new filter and pan gasket included. Anyway, now you are ready to install new pan gasket. Clean gasket mating surfaces as clean as you possibly can. let no oil or fluid get back on there. Place gasket on (most don't recommend adding sealant or gasket compound). Put pan on with all bolts fingertight. Then starting from center outward, start tightening them down to torque specs-it'd be pretty light torque, like around 20 ft-lbs-might want to ask a ford mech. what torque specs are. When done, refill ****** and check for leaks after running car.

Hi, I have a 2006 chevy aveo and I was recently told that I needed to replace the valve cover gasket because it's leaking oil. How do I replace a valve cover gasket on a 2006 chevy aveo? Much...


Its easy. I did mine about a month ago. You need to take off all the bolts on the top part of the motor. there are some tubes on the left side of the motor by pushing them out of the way... you take the old one off and replace it with the new one making sure its aligned and the you put it back on.. the bolts need to be hand tightened kinda as tight as you would do your tires.

1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!


The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.
