SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

SOURCE: rear shocks on a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

Raise car under frame then put jack under axle before removing the shock.
Can use locking pliers to hold the shaft from turning (may have to cut away dust boots). Top nuts are accessed and can be seen from the wheel wells or from the gap between the trunk and mount frame (can't see nut from this angle). Take care with fuel lines near the driver side nut.
Preventing shafts from turning on new shocks will be tough. Make sure you have a proper tool to fit top of shaft with enough room between top of shaft and trunk (gap decreases as the nut is tightened) so the tool can be removed.

The proper way to install intake manifold


You should use a light duty Torque wrench and use a sequence that usually starts in a middle bolt location and alternates side to side and works from middle holes to extreme ends. I have not tried a Web search but you could try a search that would say something like "1996 Mercury 4.6L intake manifold tightening sequence"

How to replace a oil pan gasket 2003 mercury sable


1st. Can you remove the oil pan without partially removing the engine? If - YOU CAN'T - take it to a local ASE Professional. Concerns: 1 - rear main seal, will it be damaged when you remove the oil pan. 2. Front oil seal, pan seal, same concern? Lets assume you can remove the oil pan, ok, ... you MUST get the TWO gasket surfaces clean, smooth, I mean REAL CLEAN. SIT THE oil pan with the gasket surface up and flat, ..CLEAN THE GASKET SURFACES AND EVERY BOLT with QUICK EVAPORATING brake cleaner or acetone. Let then dry. Get some Permatex spray "red" gasket glue/sealer. Spray the pan side of the gasket with the red glue, carefully lay the gasket on the pan, use the bolts to locate the gasket, make sure the gasket is seated against the pan 100% around the edges!!!! Let the gasket dry overnight!! Then spray the face of the gasket with the red sealant before installing, do it while its still tacky. tighten all bolts finger tight, then start a criss cross pattern, start slowly tightening them (WITH A QUALITY TORQUE WRENCH) TO 50% OF RECOMMENDED.VALUE, keeping the criss cross pattern to 75%, then to 100 - 110% of FACTORY SPECIFICATION. This should stop all gasket caused leaks!!

2088 ford explorer 50,000 miles small spots of transmission fluid on driveway, is this going to be a huge transmission repair?


You could just have loose trans pan bolts or leaks at cooling line fittings. I don't have the Torque specs on hand for the trans bolts but you will need a smaller Torque Wrench rated in inch-lbs. rather than foot-lbs. for the small size these units use.

What you could try is a trans filter change/cleaning which is done by taking the trans pan off and servicing the trans filter. The pan would be reinstalled.

Now go to a shop which uses new pan gaskets because your old one may be leaking and may need to replaced anyway.

SOME FAST CHANGE OIL SERVICES OFFER TRANSMISSION FLUID SERVICES-BUT THEY WILL ONLY PUMP OUT THE OLD FLUID WITH A MACHINE AND WILL NOT REMOVE THE TRANS PAN. Your trans needs to be looked at for leaks and the above procedure will not fix your problem.

It is not impossible to have a tailshaft seal leak or shift solenoid covers leak, even a speedometer cable fitting can leak. A visual inspection will tell.

If you are careful, and find a leaking trans pan, tightening it up with a 1/4 inch drive Rachet is all you need in lieu of a Torque wrench. Can not emphasize enough not to reef on these tiny bolts.

HEAD TORQUE AND SPECS FOR A 2001 HONDA ACCORD 2.3L


Tighten the cylinder head bolts. Tighten the cylinder head bolts is sequence to 29 Nm (3.0 kgf-m, 22 ft. lbs.). Use a beam-type torque wrench. When using a preset type torque wrench, be sure to tighten slowly and do not overtighten. If a bolt makes any noise while you are torquing it, loosen the bolt and retighten it. Make sure the threads are clean, new heads bolts are best.

On the bottom of the auto transmission there is a belly pan, this pan must be removed to drain the fluid out of the transmission and replace the internal fluid filter. So you will need a large drain pan to catch the fluid and a floor jack to raise the van and safety stands to support it while you remove the bolts that hold the pan on, there is no drain plug so this is a VERY messy job. Clean off the old gasket completely, use no sealer and use a high quality trans pan gasket, the dealer is best or you will have leakage problems, tighten the bolts to 12-14 pounds of torque with a torque wrench, this is very important.

HOW TO CHANGE THE TRANSMISSION FILTER ON A 1995 JEEP GRAND CHEROKE 6 CYL 4X4


Drain the pan using the drain plug (if there is one) then remove all bolts around the perimeter. you will find the filter inside. remove the three screws that hold it on and place each one in the same order into the new filter (if they are different lengths this matters) Put the filter back on. scrape every bit of gasket material off the pan rail and off the corresponding surface of the trans. Put several bolts through the pan into the gasket to keep it in place. (Never use glue...one drop inside the trans can cause huge problems) Put the pan back up and put all bolts in finger tight to avoid cross threading. Then tighten by alternating sides as you would if torquing a cylinder head. Don't overtighten. there is a torque specification but it is in inch lbs and most people don't have a wrench for that. Best rule is to use a nut driver (like a screwdriver with a socket end) to avoid over tightening and, don't tighten so much that you can see the gasket bulging.
If yours has a two piece fill tube it will be a bit difficult to get the pan down and back up but it is possible. I always put a wrap of duct tape around the joint when finished to prevent moisture from entering.
Always clean the pan magnets and put them back also! Some metal on them is normal. I believe your trans uses dex III I usually add lucas conditioner to it and it works well!
When changing fluid, you are only changing a bit less than half of it. If yours is very dirty, consider draining the pan again and replacing the fluid again in about 1000 miles. (using the drain plug. If you do, and use the additive, don't put additive in till you have done the final change.Always check for leaks when finished and tighetn at least three bolts adjacent to the leak to keep the tightness evened out.
Good luck!
