SOURCE: Saturn SC 98 valve cover torque specifications diagram

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.

Nothing really - but I would use a good grade of gasket sealer when putting back together. Also remember valve covers only need about 20 ft-lbs of torque. Don't over do it.

2-4-6 could be a fuel or ignition issue, hopefully not a valve. If you have the engine tested at the dealership they will attach a code reader under dash to analize and this should help pinpoint the problem.
