SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Corolla - Valve COver Gasket Replacement

You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton. They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.

SOURCE: I need to know the torque specs for the valve cover and oil pan

When you change your valve cover gaskets just make sure that they have a good snug feeling. ( Do not over tighten them) this will pouch the gasket out or break a bolt off. It does not take much to get them tight . just a good snug.

SOURCE: torque specs for valve cover

not sure there is such a thing. I've never seen anybody use a torque wrench on valve cover bolts. Just use a nut driver (screwdriver type) or a 1/4 inch drive ratchet, and tighten as much as you can. They don't need to be very tight.

What are the torque specs of a 2000 Buick Lesabre front and rear valve cover gaskets?


Valve covers usually don't have a torque spec. Just snug the bolts up and then give it about a quarter turn.

I have a 1994 geo tracker ,with 4 cylinder engine, it has been leaking oil and i just noticed the 4 bolts holding the valve cover were not tight. I would like to know if anyone nhas idea how they became...


most valve covers screws are loose.
they use very low torque.
and as the gasket ages, (gee the tbelt service changes it at 60,000 miles every time) but the old gaskets do shrink and must be replace way before they harden and shrink.
there are 2 engines, one is 16v alum. cover. and 8v steel cover.
so cant help much lacking that fact.
the 8v has as little as 33 INCH lbs force, 2.7 foot lbs.
as you can see that is TINY, can can be construed as loose and is for SURE not.
that is because the steel cover will DEFORM too tight and actually leak like that.
http://www.fixkick.com/specs/torque1.html

here are both settings for both engines.

all old kick enignes leak oil
at the VC (valve cover)
and the Distributor 2 o-rings
and both are lack of proper service.
here is the page.
see #2 and #3 here.
id bet it was NEVER DONE.
