What size socket fits 2007 Pontiac torrent automatic transmission fill plug or bolt


That's it in the pic? Kind of hard to gauge the bolt size from the picture. It must be metric, though. My guess, it looks like a 17 mm socket or wrench would fit. 15, 17, 18, or 19 mm, those are probably the choices. Don't you or a friend have wrenches or sockets that you could try?

flywheel bolt size


I'm thinking here that the head of the bolts is not very thick in which case the socket you are using will need some modification. If you look in the socket you will see that there is a small lead in relief and this will only allow the socket to full engage on 1/2 of the bolt head. Place the socket in a vice and use a grinder to grind of the face of the socket until the sides are square across. This will give full contact with the bolt head inside the socket.. Another point, it is unusual to find metric bolts in a USA made engine so check out the other size metric sockets as European metric use 9-11-13-15-16-18-20 mm sizes compared to Asian 10-12-14-17-19-21 mm. in auto production.
