    Tight, but don't be an animal on it. Don't use oil or any lube on the bolt threads either.

Where can I find bolt torque specs


I suggest going to an auto parts store in your area and asking for the "HAYNES" manual for your make and model. It is an easier book to read than a "Chilton'. It will have all the torque specs you need. The book will probably cost 20 - 30 dollars. This is much less than it will cost if you torque something wrong. I would be careful trusting internet sources. It is a very worthwhile investment and a complete repair manual.

Problems refiring 99 pontiac grandam gt 3.4 v6


That is an intake backfire, meaning you have the valve timing wrong. Not quite sure right now on what it should be but check timing belt position and valve timing gear positions.
