You need to buy the manual, because you also need to know the order in which to torque them.
usually you start at the middle and circle outward.
But they can differ. Some cars you always need to put in new head bolts. Others are done in several stages. This is too critical to take chances on.
If you really can't afford $19 for a manual, go to the library and xerox the pages.

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

------------ | 10 6 2 3 7 | | 9 5 1 4 8 | ------------
Step: 1 - Torque to 25 ft/lbs
Steps: 2 - Torque to 50 ft/lbs
Steps: 3 - Torque to 50 ft/lbs
Steps: 4 - Turn 90 degreesRecheck final torque in sequence
Caution:Engine uses torque to yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder headis replaced or re installed to obtain proper torque specification.
