Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
I am looking for the torque specs on the oil pan gasket. It is leaking and I need it replaced but don't know how tight to make the bolts and if there is an order to tightening.
Using a small 1/4" socket set and just your thumb and one finger with no leverage on the handle to tighten bolts. (kinda like chocking up on a bat if you know what I mean.) Starting in the middle go from one side to the opposite working your way to the corners. Use some "Permatex #2" to hold gasket in place and to help seal. Make sure not to over tighten bolts...it can actually cause it to leak.
