I need the torque setting for auto lite spark plugs going into a 2005 ford taurus


My info says 11 ft lbs--motorcraft. That would probably work just fine for auto lite. I usually just snug-em up, no torque wrench. Sometimes it's awkward trying to get torque wrench and whatever applicable fittings in close spaces. If you can get a torque wrench in there, so much the better.

1995 ford windstar thermostat housing bolt torque spec


Most people don't bother using a torque wrench to tighten a thermostat housing.

It is more important to be careful and tighten each bolt a little at a time. You do not want to warp, crack, miss align the part you are bolting.

It does not take a lot of torque to seal a thermostat housing. I would guess somewhere between 15 and 20 ft lbs.

It is often hard to find such torque specs for specific vehicles.

For bolts that you cannot find a specified torque spec, you can refer to a standard bolt torque chart. The charts are based on the diameter of the bolt threads not the wrench size used to fit the bolt head. The charts also depend on the hardness of the bolt material. Also keep in mind the material you are bolting into.

Here is one such chart...
http://www.dansmc.com/torque_chart.htm

Keep in mind that thermostat housing bolts are just sealing a gasket. They are not holding the entire car together.

After turning wrenches for many years, most mechanics just know by feel.

There are cases where a torque wrench is mandatory. Like head bolts, wheel bearing/hub nuts, rod caps, main bearing, etc.

How can i reach a torque setting of 305nm when my wrench only reaches a max of 200nm please any one help i am thinking that it can be done in 2 stages yes or no


It is possible to use a simple torque wrench extension bar, which fits onto the square drive of the torque wrench.
http://www.dmctools.com/Products/torque_conversion_charts.html
At the other end of the extension bar is a male square drive for the socket. This increases the leverage of the torque wrench by a ratio which is the total length of the wrench plus bar divided by the length of the torque wrench only. You multiply the torque reading by this ratio.
Note that NO increased torque is obtained by fitting an extension on the handle end of the torque wrench. The applied torque will still be the same as the torque wrench reading in this case.
Then there is a more expensive tool, a torque multiplier. These are often fitted to the output shafts of winches etc, and consist of a small gearbox which fits on the square drive of the torque wrench. On the other side is a male square drive for the socket.
http://www.tjtools.com.au/torquemultiplier.htm
They are geared in various multiplier ratios from 4:1 to as much as 40:1. On the gearbox casing is a reaction bar which is braced against something to keep it in place as the torque is applied.
They are expensive but you can hire them also.

How to chg alternator on 2002 ford taurus 24v dohc 3.0


ctionsThings You'll Need
  • Flywheel holding tool
  • New alternator
  • Socket wrench set
  • Torque wrench
    • 1Determine which alternator your Ford Taurus will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Taurus's engine. Models made from 1986 to 1991 have a 2.5 L HSC, 3.0 L Vulcan or 3.8 L engine. The 2.5 L engine was dropped for 1992 to 1995 models, and post-1995 models will have a 3.0 L engine.
    • 2Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Release the tension on the accessory drive belt so that you can remove the drive belt from the pulley.
    • 3Take off the mounting bolt on the right side of the alternator with a socket wrench and remove the bracket for the power steering hose. Remove the mounting bolts on top of the alternator, the front passenger wheel and tire assembly and the front fender splash shield. Remove the alternator splash shield with a socket wrench and take off the inspection cover for the torque converter.
    • 4Mount a tool to hold the flywheel so you can remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and crankshaft pulley. Lower the alternator so you can unplug its electrical connections. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor and Oxygen sensor connector. Remove the lower alternator mounting bolt and B+ connector nut to remove the alternator.
    • 5Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the above procedure. Use a torque wrench to tighten the B+ connector nut to 71 in. lbs. and the lower alternator bolt to 18 foot pounds. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 74. foot pounds, the upper alternator bolts to 18 foot pounds and the nut for the power steering hose bracket to 13 foot pounds.

Hi can you tell me the torque setting for the cylinder head on a 1995 C200 Mercedes W202 series Thanks Ken


if this is a aluminum head it will be a torque to yeild. you will need brand new head bolts and a torque to yeild wrench, torque to yeild is not a set value but the stretching point of the bolt, wich a torque to yeild wrench will tell you when the bolt is starting to stretch then you stop and torque is achieved. often the starting torque is approx 30pds then you go back through with the torque to yeild wrench. if it has a cast iron head it will have a set value determined by the manufacture which on this car i do not know off hand. I hope i at least led you in the right direction
