Default Transmission pan bolts torque specs.

What torque does it call for the transmission pan bolts? I have a '98 Silverado w/5.7L engine if that matters. Thanks in advance.

what tranny you have would probably matter more....im guessing its a 4L60e? probably about 12-16 inch lbs i think...not very tight.

I think you are right (4L60e). I tried to check them before I take it off but I don't think it would be accurate since the gasket has already been compressed and heated. They were pretty loose if you ask me. No leaking though. Thanks.

i dont follow the specs for stuff like that. i mean [bleep]. all its doing is holding a pan on and compressinga gasket tighten it till its tighht, but not tight enough to break the bolts and you'llbe set

i actually never have either, but sometimes steven torque - what i call tightening them till they all feel about the same - causes things to leak

That is exactly why I was asking because you can't get them all the same and that seems to cause a leak sooner or later. Compressing the gasket too much will also. I don't want to go through the hassle of spilling fluid everywhere just to replace the gasket from where it leaked due to incorrect torque on the pan bolts.

That might be too old of a vehicle to go by because my torque wrench only goes down to 10ft./lbs and that was WAY too much. I believe it is suppose to be something in inch/lbs.

Ahhh....does wrist tight tell you anything? You don't have to get western at all with it. The object is to get the thin little sheetmetal pan to evenly touch the gasket and seal snugly.
