SOURCE: I have a 1997 chev cavalier with a leaky valve pan

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.

You should buy a manual. If someone gave you an incorrect number you could have serious problems.

SOURCE: TORQUE SPECS /HEAD GASKET/2001 CAVALIER...

for the 2.2L OHV:
(pully 8 4 1 5 9 <-- long bolts @ 63Nm (46ft/lb)
side ) 7 3 2 6 10 <-- short bolts / 10 is the stud @ 58Nm (43ft/lb)

for the 2.4l dohc are as follows:
(pully 9 3 1 5 7
side) 10 6 2 4 8
bolts 1-8 torqued to 65Nm (40ft/lb)
bolts 9-10 torqued to 40Nm (30ft/lb)

then (either engine) give each an additional 90° (¼) turn

it's best to do the tightening in stages, you don't want to go completely tight on the first pass or there will problems and you'll get to do it all over again
