    Was his car even a Saturn? It could of been a Kia for all we know.

    Assuming you guessed the right car, what is the order you torque the
    bolts in so you dont distort or bind up the valve body?

    Btw one should also mention to use a smooth motion on the torque wrench
    and not jerk on it. Also after you finish torquing the last bolt in the
    sequence you should return to the first bolt and begin torquing again.

    Very good points. I didn't include the info for I really feel that he
    should get the manual or subscribe to alldata which gives all that
    info.. but I was in a hurry to get to work so I failed to include that
    in my message.
