The cylinder head bolt torque is a 2 step process.
First: Torque all of the bolts to 45 Nm (450 Kgf-cm or 33 ft lbs.)
Replace any head bolt that will not torque to the above specs.
Second: after all ten bolts are torqued to the above specs, the head bolts are then "Torqued to Distance"...
Starting at the center bolts, retorque all ten bolts an additional 90 degrees.
Hope this helps, the graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

Stock the car doesn't come with an oil pan gasket but you can order one from rockauto.com you don't have to remove the A/C compressor for any of the jobs you listed. If you want to change the timing belt you need to remove the plastic rock guard under the motor on the passenger side. remove the spark plugs and using the socket turn the engine from the crankshaft clockwise until you are at TDC on #1 cyclinder. (compression stroke) Next remove the upper and lower plastic timing belt covers. The idler pulley is the one with the spring. Loosen the nut and remove the spring then you can remove the timing belt. It really isn't that hard to do. Maybe one afternoon.

either the cam seals are leaking or the valve cover gasket is leaking into the timing cover. maybe even head gasket...
but in most of the cases like oil leaking from behind the timing cover the camshaft seal is the faulty .and replacing the camshaft solves the problem.
no its not a costly part to be replaced.
you can get it from a local car repair tech or from
www.autozone.com service center.they also deal in parts.
This will help. Thanks please keep
updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
