Question about Chevrolet Malibu
Pretend the picture is lower intake manifold, that is the tightening sequence.
1st step 5 ft lbs
2nd step bolts 1--4 9.6 ft lbs
3rd step bolts 5--8 18 ft lbs
The upper intake manifold use about the same sequence tighten to 18 ft lbs.
If you don't like ft lbs use inch lbs.
If the upper intake manifold is plastic, be careful with that.
