The 2002 2.4 engine head bolts are 'torqued to distance'.
First, install all the bolts, and, in a sequential fashion, starting at the innermost, working outward, torque all bolts to 70 N-m/806 kgf-cm/58 foot lbs.
Next, mark the front side of each head bolt with a dot of paint. Retighten te cylinder head bolts 90 degrees, starting at the inner 2, and working outward.
We hope that this helps you out.

SOURCE: Head bolt torque specs?
I really really really hope you turned the bolts an additional 90 degrees after torquing to 22 Ft-lbs. Otherwise, you may be taking that head off again.
Best of luck,
