Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo
What is the diagram to tighten bolts? What order do I put them in how do I know whats bolt 1 is
There isn't an order for valve covers. Just snug them down good. Start at the center of the cover and work your way to the ends.

You'll have to check the tag that is mounted to one of the differetial cover bolts. It'll tell you there. If the tag is gone, you'll have to remove the cover and rotate the ring gear. While you're rotating the gear, look for the numbers on it. You'll see a set of numbers for example 41 10 , when you see this you divide one into the other and this will give you the ratio. For example the numbers above gives you a gear ratio of 4.10.

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

A crack in that area of the block, while possible, is highly unlikely. A crack in the block usually happens in between the cylinder walls on the side of the block. It is most likely leaking from the intake manifold gasket that connects the intake manifold to the heads, or if the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold, it could be leaking from the thermostat housing or hose. There are also coolant temperature sensors that are mounted in that area. Or last but not least, it could be leaking from one of the freeze plugs in the end of the head. Coolant runs through the block, heads and intake manifold.
