93 Dodge Shadow valve cvr gasket torque specs?

My wife has a 93 Dodge Shadow with a 2.2 4 cyl. engine. The valve cover gasket is leaking. I'm normally an appliance man but I think I can do this , it looks fairly straight forward.But I assume the cover bolts should be torqued to a certain ft/lb spec? Anybody know what? Any other tips I should know?

Make sure you get all the old gasket removed from both surfaces and just snug the bolts with a nut driver or 1/4" drive; they don't need much torque.

Yup, these were notorious leakers.

I believe Felpro has a "Permatorque" type gasket for this application which is a problem solver part. I suggest you get it.

I believe from Chrysler it was also just RTV, you might also check with your local Chrysler dealer as well to see what they show.

I would say you'd be fine with the Felpro. As TowGuy said, use a 1/4" rachet and snug it all the way around but don't over do it.
