SOURCE: Upper Intake Plenum Gasket R+R Torque Sequence

I cannot post a picture here because that is copyrighted material. However, the torque sequence is always "start in the center and work your way out to both ends...pretty simple.

The torque specifications are different depending on which engine your Escape is equipped with.

Looking for intake torque sequence

Lower intake torque is done in three steps:
Step 1 27 in. lbs
Step 2 106 in. lbs
Step 3 133 in. lbs
Sequence is:

<- Front of Engine
7 1 3 5

8 4 2 6

Could find no specific sequence for upper intake, but they torque in 2 steps.
Step 1 44 in. lbs
Step 2 89 in. lbs

Hope this helps :)

Toquer on the intake

start in the center working in an expanding square pattern crossing over the manifold on the first 2 bolts. tighten in 3 steps. these are low torque fasteners, don't over tighten & use locktite.
If reusing the fasteners, apply threadlock GM P/N 12345382 or equivalent to the threads of the lower intake manifold bolts.
Install the lower intake manifold bolts.

Notice: Proper lower intake manifold fastener tightening sequence and torque is critical. Always follow the tightening sequence, and torque the intake manifold bolts using the 3 step method. Failing to do so may distort the crankshaft bearing bore alignment and cause damage to the crankshaft bearings.

Tighten the lower intake manifold bolts.

from front of engine tighten 2 bolt back left side, then 3rd bolt back right side, then 3 bolt back left side, then 2nd bolt back right side, then back bolt left side, back bolt right side, then front bolt left side, then front bolt right side

Tighten the bolts on the first pass in sequence (1-8) to 3 N·m (27 lb in).
Tighten the bolts on the second pass in sequence (1-8) to 12 N·m (106 lb in).
Tighten the bolts on the final pass in sequence (1-8) to 15 N·m (11 lb ft).
