PONTIAC GRAND AM GAS PROBLEM

2002 Pontiac Grand Am • 98,000 miles

I am doing a valve job on a 3.4. The Question is about torquing the head bolts. Book says so many ft. Lbs. Then so much %. How do I figure out what the % is. Also I bought gaskets from ebay and they are not marked which side up. However one side does have a blue bead that is raised up on one side of the gasket. Does this side go up, or down?

I put the sealant down on the block

figure a clock is 360 degrees. Every 15 minutes is 90 degrees. And so on.

Make sure you have new head bolts.
