What is torque bolt setting on 1995 infiniti cross member

Probably not specified anywhere, but most shop manuals or mechanics data books will have a chart of usual torque values for bolts of different grades and sizes. If it were mine, I would replace any lock washers, use a good ratchet or 1/2" breaker bar and snug them to about 25 to 35 ft. lbs.

Torque settings & tightening sequence for cylinder head

Need more details here like petrol engine or diesel ,but torque sequence is easy start in the middle and alternate from side to side ,as for the torque then a petrol engine alloy head then 65lbs will suffice ,yes i dare say some expert will come back and say it has a special tool and you torque to so many newtons then back off 90? and tighten so many degrees ,well this old fogey does the proper way as on the assembly they pull the head down all at once with one big machine ,so start in the middle and pull down with a rachet lightly going from left to right one bolt at a time,then pull down a bit harder for the second pass then the last pass with the torque wrench .then have a cuppa and a ciggy ,visit the boys room and read the paper then pull it down again ,job done ,do not rush anything your not on bonus or the assembly line .These fancy tools that measure degrees are not cheap for a one off use and your not trying to impress a client that walks into the workshop either so do it the old fashioned way and you will not be far wrong,right iam off out now more ITVs to do ,vehicle inspections at the goverment test centre ,easy money for a old person like me who speaks the spanish

Mustang gt 5.0 inside passenger side car in motion auto trans in drive or neutral, knocking noise heard from transmission area

check your torque converter bolts/nuts.
and if it ONLY makes the noise when it's in neutral or drive NOT moving I'd suspect a front pump torque converter. You can unhook the torque converter to isolate this diagnosis... If it ONLY happens when the vehicle is in motion you might be looking in the wrong place

You'll need to get under the valve covers. If this is a 3.0 liter V6 you'll want to take the valve train off of the cams. Be ceratin to loosen all of the bolts a little at a time as the valve springs will cause the assemble to stain. As the valve train becomes loose the tappets can drop from the rockers (be carefull to catch these or wrap something around them to prevent them from falling out. (to not move the cams) once out you can repplace the tappets, before doing soing place each tappet in a cup od oil and pump them full of oil. Place a small wire in to each tappet and gentley press down while pumping back and forth, you'll note the air coming out once full of oil replace in valve train and carefully reinstall, use a torque wrench for proper values. It can be done, Ihave done it, take your time and be patient.
I hope this may have helped,

Torque wrench settings for a 1998 Toyota Rav4

It would seem that @ 8Nnm you were under the torque to properly seat the gasket and it blew out. Going down @ 5Nm may worsen the issue.
My manual lists 11Nm for many of the smaller bolts in the auto trans. Unless you believe that you over tightened and that's why it blew out?

Remember to evenly cross torque/tighten the bolts to get even seating. Did you use any sealant on one side of the gasket, that may help (only apply a small thin continuous sealent bead...this will help stop gasket movement and blowout)

Torque settings

You have to use new headbolts because they are torque to yield bolts. You start in the middle and criss cross out to the ends with an initial torque of 33 ft-lbs. Then you criss cross out out again with an additional 90 degrees on each bolt, then you do it again from the middle another 90 degrees to make a total of 180 degress past the initial 33ft-lbs.

I have a '92 Buick Regal GS. It only goes up to 20-25mph, After that i the rpms go up but the speed stays the same. I then, have to wait until the speed goes back to 5-10mph until i can get it to speed up...

The torque convertor is slipping. In most cars where used, this is a sealed assembly and may not be a DIY job because of its position.
The torque converter is probably a 'corporate' part used in many different models but yours crossed to here:

The first ones appear at the mottom of that page.
