You have a blown head gasket that needs to be replaced. The head may be warped too so it's not an easy job to do without the proper tools and parts.

SOURCE: i need to find out where the push rods are at in

If it has push rods, you will find them under the rocker cover on the top of the engine, they are hiding under the rockers. The rods ride on a lifter that rides on the cam and then they push the valves down, and squirt oil all over everything, a spring brings them back up. The overhead cam eliminated all these extra parts. Lifters, rods, rockers. Hope this helps.

Please explain on a 96 cavalier 2.2 it say to torque heads 90 degress?


You are referring to the cylinder head bolt-torque sequence. Here is the instructions, then I'll clarify.

  1. Install cylinder head bolts finger-tight. New cylinder head bolts are recommended.
  2. Tighten bolts in sequence, tighten the long bolts to 46 ft. lbs. (63 Nm) plus 90 degrees. Tighten the short bolts to 43 ft. lbs. (58 Nm) plus 90 degrees.

The cylinder head is made of aluminum. Over-torque of bolts can result in warping or cracking of the head. Also, some of the head bolts go into the water jacket. Those bolts requires a teflon sealer or water will come up through the threads and result in coolant leaks. Use a thin wood dowel to probe the cylinder head bolt holes to see if they bottom out or go into the water jacket.

When you tighten the bolts, do it in the sequence directed, up to the toque specified for each length bolt. Once that has been done, you will make one more circuit of the bolts, tightening each one by 90 degrees. The easy way to do this is to place your torque wrench on a bolt with the handle pointed at 6 o'clock. Tighten the bolt another 90 degrees, or when the handle reaches 9 o'clock. 90 degrees is 1/4 revolution of the bolt. (You can start the wrench anywhere that is convenient to make the 90 degree advance without interruption.)

Hope that helps!

Cylinder head torque specs fro 2002 dawoo


Hi Chris, I think (but not 100 percent sure). Cylinder head, torque to 19 nm, loosen 90 degrees. Retighten to 29 nm. Paint spot of white paint on front of bolt head and tighten additional 90 degrees and then another 90 degrees (Total 180 degrees) You won't be far wrong anyway. Loosen head from outside working to center. Tightening is opposite starting from center spiralling outwards. Follow tightening sequence in steps, not in one movement. I would tighten as follows; 19 nm then loosen 90 degrees, tighten to 29 nm, mark bolt heads with paint and turn each bolt 20 degrees until 90 nm and then continue tightening to full torque. Regards John
