How much torque on a 2001 grand am water pump bolts

On a 3.4L grand am, my info says 89 inch lbs. You local auto store will sell torque wrenches, inch pounds or ft pounds. For small torque, I use inch pounds torque wrench. If you snug it up, you should be ok. I'm not saying crank on it for all your worth, just snug it up or use a torque wrench. Just keep an eye out for leaking?

I have a 99 R1, and I am installing a flywheel. It needs to be torqued to 9.5lbs. If it's tightened with a socket wrench is the 9.5 lbs achievable?

Use an Inch pound torque wrench (very cheap to buy), then set it to the conversion of 9.5 ft pounds to inch pounds which is 114 inch pounds.

How can I remove the fuel injectors?

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench and relieve the fuel system pressure. Disconnect the vacuum hose and remove the intake manifold collector from the fuel pressure regulator.
  2. Detach the fuel hoses from the fuel rail with a socket wrench and disconnect the fuel injector electrical connectors. Remove the fuel rail mounting bolts with a socket wrench so you can separate the fuel rail assembly from the intake manifold with the fuel injectors still attached.
  3. Push on the fuel injector tail piece to separate the injector from the rail. Discard the fuel injector O-rings.
  4. Lubricate the new O-rings with a small amount of clean engine oil and install the new fuel injector by reversing the removal procedure. Use a torque wrench to tighten the fuel rail mounting bolts in two stages. First, torque the bolts to between 84 and 96 inch pounds and then torque them to between 15 and 20 foot pounds

Torque specs on a 1987 Nissan 300 zx 2+2 plenum

If you are referring the the collector the specs are:
Collector cover: 4.3 - 5.8 ft lbs
Collector: 13-16 ft lbs

You should use a torque wrench that is sensitive at low torques. I bought an "inch pound" torque wrench for delicate items like injectors and just convert the foot pounds to inch pounds.

How do you replace an alternater in a 1997 dodge ram 150 truck


You will be needigng the below;

  • New alternator
  • Socket wrench set
  • Torque wrench

  • Determine which alternator your Dodge Ram will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Ram's engine. A Dodge Ram made after 2001 may be equipped with a 3.7 L, 4.7 L, 5.7 L Hemi V8, 5.9 L Magnum V8, 5.9 L Cummins diesel, 6.7 L Cummins diesel, 8.0 L Magnum or 8.3 L Viper engine.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the accessory drive belt and disconnect the wiring harness from the alternator. You will also need to remove the support bracket with a socket wrench for 3.7 L, 4.7 L and 5.7 L engines.

    Take the mounting bolts off of the alternator with a socket wrench and remove the alternator assembly.

    Install the new alternator assembly. If you have a 3.7 L engine, tighten the horizontal bolts to 42 foot pounds and the vertical bolt to 29 foot pounds with a torque wrench. Torque the long horizontal bolt and vertical bolt to 41 foot pounds and the short horizontal bolt to 55 foot pounds for a 4.7 L engine. Torque the mounting bolts to 30 foot pounds for all other engines.

    Connect the wiring harness to the alternator, install the accessory drive belt and connect the negative battery cable.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck.
