The torque loading for head (and many others) bolts varies with the engine concerned. It is important to check the manufacturers handbook to ensure the correct loading is applied. It is also important to tighten the bolts on the sequence indicated in the manual and by increments to the final loading. If no sequence is given then it is good practice to tighten from the centre out.

For most 'standard' car engines it will be around 50 ft lb.

Remove the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and then remove the head. Scrap off the old gasket and install a new one. Reinstall the head and Torque the head bolts in the proper sequence. Reinstall the intake and exhaust manifold torque the bolts to the proper torque. This is a major repair and not for a novice to try.

You should torque the head bolts by alternating from and to end, working towards the center. The head bolts should be torqued in 40 pound intervals.

For all the 2.3, 2.4L QUAD 4 engines, the head bolts are Torque to Yield. The porper torque value is 30ftlbs PLUS a 90 degree turn of the wrench. The bolts must be new every time ( NEVER REUSE OLD BOLTS). The torque values and proper sequence are including in the box the new bolts come with. BUT honestly, the torque value is 65ft lbs like all GM Chevy motors have been for eons.

the proper torque specification for the geo storm 1.6 engine is 58 ft lbs ... Always torque in a spiral from the center outwards. Make sure you cleaned up the threads in the block ith a chaser (NOT a tap) before proceeding. And oil the threads on the new head bolts. You should be able to turn the bolts all the way snug with your fingers if the threads are cleaned up correctly. Then torque in 3 stages to the final torque in a spiral from the inner bolts.
