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?

Torque specifications for 2004 sebring valve cover bolts


Its 105 inch pounds. Tighten the bolts in several steps. when done, check for oil leakage. But.....At this point, its a 2004. You dont need a torque wrench. Its pretty easy to feel it. Obviously dont grind em in after they get tight but once theyre hand tight, go in your order, (middle to out if thats what you like) and tighten them a little further each time. Get it to where if you put anymore pressure its going to go too deep. You can do it without a torque wrench on these. You'll know, but again, just dont go crazy. I never use torque wrenches anymore except for head bolts or something that important. I've been a mechanic for lot of years. Kind of grew up with cars though. I never have ANY issues with any bolts or anything not torqued enough or over tightened. (I have went too far into aluminum on a saab one time but that was one water pump bolt, did the rest a little lighter and it never leaked) But last time, I am positive you can do these valve cover bolts, on a 2.7 at that, without any torque wrench whatsoever. I didn't think anybody used them on valve covers anymore unless the car is like, new or something. You will be fine. But, If you're not comfortable, I get it. Go ahead and break out the small torque wrench and do em at 105 inch pounds. Can you even get a torque wrench on the back set of bolts on that back one? Anyway, good luck and I'm willing to bet that you tighten them a little further than 105 when you see how loose 105 is, maybe not. But, you might not be comfortable with only 105"lbs. Good luck, and you got this!

Torque specifications


You have the wrong size Torque Wrench. IF you Torque Wrench measures nm, and it max'd out @ 130, you need a larger Torque Wrench. Convert nm to Ft. Lb and use these if necessary.

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.

I'm replacing spark plugs on an Escort GT 1.8L 16V Fuel injected


you dont need a torque wrench....ALWAYS remember to put antisieze on the threads of the new plugs...gap them to specs...screw them dowm until the gasket (little ring by the threads) contacts the head, and then 1/2 to 1 full turn more...they dont need to be super tight....just slightly more than "snug"

Torque settings


  1. Tighten the cylinder head bolts sequentially in three steps. NOTE: Perform each step twice. 1st step torque: 39 Nm (4.0 kgf-m, 29 ft. lbs.) 2nd step torque: 69 Nm (7.0 kgf-m, 51 ft. lbs.) 3rd step torque: 98.1 Nm (10.0 kgf-m, 72.3 ft. lbs.) Use a beam-type torque wrench. When using a preset-type torque wrench, be sure to tighten slowly and not to overtighten. If a bolt makes any noise while you are torquing it, loosen the bolt, and retighten it from the first step.
