Oil pan torque specs

I looked, honestly I did.
I even have a Frontier service manual in PDF and could not find it.
I crushed my oil pan today and need to replace it, it's leaking.
The part comes in tomorrow hopefully, cross your fingers.
I need the torque specs on the oil pan bolts, any body know what that is?
I can't seem to find it.
Thanks to all that help.

Did you really look? Are you sure? LOL

Its on page EM-137 in the 07 manual.

It states the TQ is 80 in-lbs.

I'd also recommend that you purchase some kind of skid plate. Personally I ordered the oem (yes it is thin and etc.... but fits my needs) but you may find that the Shrock or etc.... may be better suited for your situations.

Son of a biscuit, you are right.
I guess I didn't see the little wrench on the exploded diagram.
I was looking for blue text like previous diagrams calling out torque specs.
Thanks dub!

Heh heh -- I always check the color of the little wrench icon to see if it's IN/LBS or FT/LBS! (Thanks Dubie!) I wonder how many people have suffered the consequences of overlooking that. <oh Snap!>

That is a scary thing to think about. I remember reading posts where guys were torquing down the retainer cap for the TPMS and went way beyond the in-lb limit since they read it as ft-lb. Then to think of the people with the IMS who have snapped bolts due to a mis-read.

New pan is on.
Now to watch it for a couple of days to make sure everything is seated and sealed properly.
I still have minor drippage here and there from all the oil that sprayed back all over my under carriage.
The cross member right behind the oil pan took on a lot of oil, heh.
It's raining today, hopefully that will clean up the underside a bit.
