Definitely. If it's connected directly to the battery it's not regulated. Typically this is in cars that still have actual lighters (that draw a ton of current), or are still emulating that for one reason or another. My Focus has regulated output (and you can't really fit a real lighter in it).

comment Is an 50 ft/lb air wrench (not impact wrench) strong enough to remove brake assemblies
Also, do you mean air ratchet (since you can't fit an impact)? Those won't have any where near enough torque to loosen, but they are nice to remove already loosened bolts.

Depends on the torque applied to the fastener and any extra torque required to break free any corrosion since it was set. We need more information.
