My kia was stolen and it was run very hot while gone. Now we are replacing the head gaskets, but we need the head bolt tightening sequence and if the bolts need to be "stretched"

Do you

Docfixit, thank you so much. The only book I could find was $195 and I just could not afford that after the parts to fix this thing.
