Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

43,935

Call the Chevy dealer, as there are sometimes 2 different sets of torque specs. For example, on a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire with the 2.2 OHV engine, there is a "short bolt torque" of 91 inch lbs + 1/4 turn after 91, and a "long bolt torque" of 93 inch lbs + 1/4 turn after 93, when doing a head gasket replacement.
