Question about 2008 Chevrolet Aveo 1.6
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. :-)

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.
