...gasket is gone, oil in the plugs... bleh.

The KIA shop manual (both my hard copy and kiatech) show the locations of the bolts on the "Cylinder Head Cover" --aka valve cover-- and they provide the torque at 35-52 lb-in (4-6Nm), but they don't specify a tightening order.

Is there an designated order, or does it matter? Start in the middle and circle outwards?

I did a search and there was a post a couple years back that said a Haynes manual gave one but then they didn't share it in the post. If Kia doesn't put it in their manual, maybe Haynes just made it up?

Thanks.

I believe those torque specs are 2.9 - 4.3 lb-ft for the first pass then 5.8 - 7.2 lb-ft for 2nd pass. Tighten in order shown.
