Post Torque Specs GO-TO List

I found this online a few years back and this is something I've had stashed in my tool box for quite sometime now. Every time I work on my truck I reference it. So I thought it would be worth sharing I've added socket sizes to all the ones I can remember/ have removed before. Please feel free to post ones that are wrong/ missing in this thread if you know it!

Disclaimer:
These numbers were pulled manually from the 2005 Nissan Xterra Service Manual (revision Feb. 2006). There could be errors in translation, typos, mis-reading of the manual, brain farts, etc. Please double checked these torque specs with Nissan. I take no responsibility if you use these specs and something falls off. Original Thread I Borrowed the info from

I will add to this over time. If there is anything I am missing or someone sees that is wrong, please let me know and 'll add it.

I would recommend updating/clarifying this... There's 2 manifolds, the upper (plastic) & lower (aluminum)
The Upper manifold (Intake Manifold Collector FSM pg EM144) is 5 ft/lbs (or 60 in/lbs) first pass, 8 ft/lbs (or 96 in/lbs)

the lower manifold (Intake Manifold pg EM146) is 65 in/lb (5 1/2 ft/lb) then 22 ft/lb.


the lower manifold is bolting into the heads, so is a little more tolerant of torque stress... the Upper manifold is going into the lower manifold and has VERY little tolerance for torque stress. I GREATLY suggest for anyone to use an in/lb wrench when tightening the Upper (plastic) manifold. an extra 2-4 ft/lbs can strip out the threaded holes with the stock length bolts. They only go in 1/2 to 2/3 depth of the threaded holes (which are open on the bottom side) When I installed my IMS, the first time I snapped one of the included stainless steel bolts... at 11 ft/lbs (wasn't paying close enough attention to my beam-type wrench) It kept feeling like they were loosening up. (SS is non-graded... =< grade 5)

grabbed some grade 8, used antisieze, and picked up a inch/lb wrench. The bolts were longer to be sure to use all of the available threads...

Does this screen shot from the FSM mean the front drive shaft spline nut should be torqued to 137ft lbs? It show's 137 then (14, 101) Can someone explain what the 137 and (14, 101) means? Should I go with the info above and just torque it to 101ft lbs?

The third number is the one in ft lbs.

Just wanted to update a torque spec that I tried to use yesterday on my front brakes. Front brake slide pin bolt does NOT require 32 ft-lbs. Snapped off a slide pin bolt yesterday when I reinstalled the caliper and without thinking set my torque wrench to the specified torque on this reference sheet. On further exam the bolt is only about an M8, which typically is only going to take about 15 to 18 ft-lbs, may be able to go into the mid 20's if it's a class 10.9. Either way, 32 is too high. 19 ft-lbs (which is what the rear brake slide pin bolt is listed at) is more like it.

Interesting...
Sorry the bolt broke on you, was it degraded in any way? Corrosion and such? Was the torque wrench calibrated recently?
These specs are right from the FSM so this is what Nissan engineers decided was appropriate.

Not degraded at all. My truck is only 4 years old with 20k on it. Arizona weather. Torque wrench has not been calibrated recently, but is only a year or so old.

Could have been just a fluke. But it is odd that the front and rear both use the same bolt (I think) and the torque is different, and one torque is what you would expect for an 8mm bolt, and the other is pretty high. Either way, I still love the torque spec sheet, use it all the time!

Schematic in the service manual for the 2008 Frontier for the front brake sliding pin bolts shows 32 ftlbs. The union bolt shows 19. The rear shows 24 ftlbs on the 2 sliding pin bolts and 19 for the union. Maybe we have to use this chart: http://www.ntractorclub.com/howtos/p...Bolt-Sizes.pdf
