89 INCH pounds. Meaning very little torque, they will snap if given just a tad too much torque.

SOURCE: 2000 VW jetta; what is the torque for valve cover and plenum

I briefly looked online and did not see any info direct6ly relating to the torque spec of the cover bolts. I would guess around 15 ft lbs.--not too much--the head is aluminium--best way to go is to walk up to the service counter of the VW dealer and ask him to provide that information. You have the car and they built it!

1996 Saturn sl2 emitting kinda heavy white smoke only when reved car was sitting replaced valve cover gasket and gas lines please help


Hi,
White smoke usually indicates there is a problem with the cooling system to the engine. Here are some things I would check.
Coolant
Radiator
Thermostat
Hose from radiator to thermostat
Most importantly, the valve cover gasket. When you replace this type of gasket, we need to make sure you torque down the bolts in a certain pattern at a certain torque.

I hope this helps.

1997 Honda Accord, 4 Cl. Replaced valve cover gasket, oil still leaking somewhere directly below the valve cover?


Sounds to me like you have either forgot to put back on the breather tube that runs off of the top of the valve cover, or, you did not set your valve cover correctly, or the torque is not correct on the cover itself.
8.7ft/lbs and the torque sequence is inside to outside (torque the inner-most nut between cyl 2 & 3 first, then the one above it then alternate sides on the outside ones). Recommended Hondabond is on the corners and the cam cap areas.

Replacement for 97 Saturn SL2


The valve cover is on top of the motor. There are about 10-12 Torx bit bolts that need to be removed. Also remove the spark plug wires, good idea to label them. It will be a little tough to get the valve cover off, because from the factory they only use silicone as a gasket. A puddy knife might be helpful in seperating the cover from the head. Once the valve cover is off you'll need to clean the old silicone off. Install the new gasket, and reinstall the valve cover.

I have a 1997 chev cavalier with a leaky valve pan that needs replacement can you tell me the torque specs for the valve cover please 2.2 litre


Valve covers don't need to be very tight. A torque wrench isn't necessary as all they do is contain the oil. If it is leaking you will likely need to replace the valve cover gasket. Just tighten it with a small ratchet and socket until it's snug. Over tightening will compress the gasket and cause it to leak. If you feel you need to use a torque wrench, i would guess about 10 or 15 lbs.

94 Saturn Twin Cam Valve Adjustment


Valve slash and clearance adjustments should only be performed by certified mechanics and is not a job for the garage or novice hands on type.
If you still decide to proceed, I suggest you get your hands on a maintenance manual which will list the procedure step by step, including proper torque values.
