View Full Version : Torque specs for oil pan bolts-

03-15-2013, 01:22 PM
My 2005 has a small leak of oil on the passenger front corner of my oil pan -just accumulates a little oil on the bolt and the tube clamp that is also held by this front passenger corner pan bolt (tube clamp holds tranny line from cooler I think)
Anyway, I put a wrench on it and it wasn't at all tight so I'm wondering what the torque is supposed to be? The oil doesn't appear to be coming from anywhere else- it is all dry but for that bolt. Never drips either.

Well harking back to an old ex RN master mechanic who I apprenticed and worked on US made MTB boats as a bosun in WW2 would often say "with them thar Yankee Chrysler boats "tight is tight and too tight is over tight"!:laughing:
Since this is a different Chrysler Mopar product, Mr Mitchell on line says;_
6mm pan to block is 9nm
8mm pan to end cover 20nm
and the back section of 6mm are gain 9nm.

NM:- that's them thar Newton Meters of course NOT them foot pounds ok!:laughing:
Cheers Dennis

I knew someone would know.

Thanks much!!! All torqued. Now we will see if it still leaks. Hope springs eternal
