Valve cover's torque setting - 2002 Buick Regal

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 21-01-2019

Answers :

Do not over tighten,, this torque doesn't really need a setting,, make them just over finger tight and then using a socket or wrench give them each a quarter turn
I agree there is no exact torque spec. And that is because you need to avoid pinching the gasket.
Start in the center and work your way out in a widening circle.
Just take out the loose slack on the first pass.
Do the extra quarter turn on the second pass.
But then wait 5 minutes, maybe warming up the engine, and check them again.
Gaskets take a little time to compress.
The goal is just to avoid it coming loose.
