Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo
So i know where bolts go. what sequence to but tighten bolts down what order
Should not matter. Just snug them down all around, then tighten them securely. DO NOT over-tighten. You can bend or break the valve cover or the bolts. Do not get crazy when tightening them. Good luck.

start in the middle and work your way out ,do three passes ,first one with speed key then ratchet then with a nice shiney snap on knuckle bar .making sure the bolt holes are cleaned out with no oil or water in them

The problem may very well be fixed by tightening the boltto the factory spec, but what you must realize is the gasket has lost its even shape from extreme temperature changes.being its now thicker in one area as apposed to the next thus causing the leak from shrinkage.retightening the bolts tro specs will mean you are sinking the bolts at an uneven level and possibly warping the pan from ever seating correctly when facing the enevatable and thats replacing the gasket. i suggest just replacing the gasket with a quality aftermarket performance gasket as apposed to the factory gasket from the dealer or local parts store.you will find the quality and reliabilityand the longevity of the performance aftermarket gasket will far eceed the limits of that of the stock one.i know this wasnt a solution to your problem but hopefully i have saved you several hundred dollars from having to replace the pan itself due to the warping issue.

ok, common error. First group your bolts by their lokeness. length,diameter, and thread.. Then if you have 4 holes, find 4 bolts that fit. they should all protrude the same amount,about 1/2 in. Finger start only,about3-5 turns, use no tools. regardless of length if its in the right hole it will protrude the same as the others. Driy run if neededbut use no force on any of them. Good luck. Contact me if you have a question. If you force a long bolt down, you can punch a hole through something and a bolt too short won't take the torque or strip. phone 909 630 3192

SOURCE: I need to know the
On any vehicle regardless of make you always tighten the head bolt in teh same order ,start in the middle lower middle top then one to left and one to right till you reach the end of the head ,do it in two staged first with a rachet which will bring it down to about 40lbs then after doing all of them use nice long snap on bar makesit easier and pull down to about 65LBS for a alluminium head and 75LBS for a cast iron head ,Or in my case till i feel the bolts stretch but as your not a professional use a torque wrench .
