What is the torque on the head bolts for a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2L 4CYL?

Asked by Jan 26, 2015 at 08:06 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have been rebuilding the engine on my 2003 pontiac sunfire 2.2L 4CYL and it is leaking
coolant from between the engine block and the head. I believe it is because I may have
torqued the bolts too low. Any assistance is appreciated.

Start in the middle and work out to ends, make one round to 22 ft/lbs and then go around again and turn another 155°..just under a half turn, and only use NEW bolts
