Saturn SC 98 valve cover torque specifications diagram

If there's anyone who has or knows where I could find the diagram to render the correct lbs of torque while tightening the bolts after a gasket replacement. I would really appreciate it very much.

You can look up repair guides on autozones repair section, but when i replaced my valve cover on my 98 saturn sc2, I did a alternating star patern like on a tire, and I just tightened it down till I saw the seals from the spark plug wholes plump out just a lilte. I have no leaks and no problems. The torque speks in the book are in inch pounds not foot pounds. So I just did it on my own.

Valve 1 shows the bolts to remove and not to touch

Valve 2 shows you where the bolts go and their length

Valve 3 shows you the order to use for the torque wrench


1) bolts #8 + 9 are dowel bolts. Make sure they go in 1st to align the VB.

2) make sure you use a torque wrench to tighten the VB bolts ( 96in lbs I think????) Due to the VERY thin metal walls of the VB, they are VERY easy to distort.

3) when you remove the VB, a whole S***load of fluid will pour out....get a bucket or drain pan ready...

4) when you lift the VB up, the manual valve will still be connected. Just slide the link rod out by moving the vb towards the front of the car. It's ok if the manual valve slides out. It only goes in and hooks up to the linkage 1 way on the '99. On the '93 you have to pay special attention because it is easy to mixup the orientation of the valve.......

5) if it is the '93 you are working on.....your replacement VB may come with instrucitons on replacing/modifying the manual valve.....just resue your old one and save yourself the time in doing the modification.......



This is per the ATSG Book
Never use a 3rd design manual valve on a 1st design manual valve link. This will allow extra play in the linkage and could result in wrong gear engagements.

Functionally the 3rd design manual valve (1994 +) is the same as the 2nd design (1992 +) it just has a plastic cap on the end to prevent the manual valve from being installed backwards.

Install the manual valve with either the flat (1991-1992 early), or notch (1992 + including 1994 +) UP.....NOTCH OR FLAT UP!!!!

Hope this helps a little
its 97In-lbs, according to the ATSG book but i think alldata has it listed at 96In-lbs.


You can use a 1st gen manual valve in a newer valve body (one with a 3rd gen valve) , therefore avoiding the issue of link/valve incompatabilities......

I should add, if you remove only the bolts listed above, the VB will come out as a complete unit....no worries about balls or springs falling out....just about .5L of fluid!

If I can get your email, I can send you a picture of the order for torquing the valve body this is for my SC2 1993, but I think they are the same. my email is rocks_water4gas@inbox.com

Hope it helps Good Luck Roxanne

Head torque specs for 92 honda accord with f22a1


Thanks for using FixYa.

To install:
  1. Install a new head gasket on the engine, making certain it is positioned correctly. The cylinder head dowel pins and the oil jet must be in place. Refer to the illustrations if necessary.
  2. Install the head. Lower it straight down onto the block, aligning it correctly.
  3. Apply clean engine oil to the bolt threads and the contact face of the bolt head. Install the head bolts finger-tight.
  4. On all models except 1988-89 DOHC Prelude and 1992-95 Preludes with 2.3L and VTEC engines, tighten the head bolts following sequence A. On 1988-89 DOHC Preludes, use sequence B. Use sequence C on 1992-95 Preludes with 2.3L and VTEC engines.
    1. On 1984-89 Accords and 1984-91 Preludes, tighten the bolts in two passes. The first pass should bring the bolts to about 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). On the second pass, tighten the bolts to their final torque of 49 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
    2. On 1990-93 Accords, tighten the bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on the first pass, 51 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) on the second pass, then tighten the bolts to their final torque of 78 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
    3. On 1994-95 Accords and 1992-95 Preludes, the bolts are also tightened in three passes. Tighten the bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on the first pass, 51 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) on the second pass, then tighten the bolts to their final torque of 72 ft. lbs. (100 Nm).

Hi Eduardo:

Fig. 15: Cylinder head loosening sequence-VG30i and VG30E engines


zjlimited_1064.jpg

Fig. 17: Cylinder head torque sequence-VG30i and VG30E engines


Install the cylinder head with a new gasket. Apply clean engine oil to the bolt threads and seats, then install the bolts with washers (beveled edges up) in the correct position. Note that bolts 4, 5, 12 and 13 measure 5.00 in. (127mm), and are longer than the others. The other bolts are 4.17 in. (106mm) long.

Tighten the bolts in the proper sequence, in the following stages:
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 43 ft. lbs. (59 Nm).
Loosen all bolts completely.
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
Tighten all bolts, in order, to 40-47 ft. lbs. (54-64 Nm). Or, if you have an angle torque wrench available, tighten them an additional 60-65 degrees.

Fig. 17: Cylinder head bolt torque sequence (click over pic for zoom)


Apply sealing compound only to the cylinder head gasket. Do not allow sealing compound to enter the cylinder bore.

Install the cylinder head and bolts. The threads of bolt No. 11 must be coated with Loctite® 592 sealant before installation. Tighten the bolts in 3 steps, using the correct sequence:

Tighten all bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
Tighten all bolts to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm).
Retighten all bolts to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm).
Tighten bolts 1 through 10 in sequence to 110 ft. lbs. (150 Nm).
Tighten bolt 11 to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm)
Tighten bolts 12 through 14 to 110 ft. lbs. (150 Nm)
