Anyone know any good websites to check for torque specs? I have looked on library.alldatapro and google, and I couldnt find it. Are there any reliable websites out there that anyone knows with car information like this?
I used to have a set of manuals that had all of this info but, for reasons I won't get into, I don't have them at this time. But I remember tightening end caps on a 2001 v6 3.8l several years ago, if that's what you have. Three step process to tighten end cap bolts should go as follows:
Tighten to 18 ft. lbs. Then tighten to 33 ft. lbs. Lastly, tighten another 105 degrees.
It's my opinion that the bolts should be new. Threads should be lubed (oil or something). Oh, and just to clarify, this info is for standard size (not under or oversized). Thanks @Ben for confirmation.
