Default 4L60E trans. pan bolt torque specs


Need torque specs for '03 Envoy transmission pan bolts using new gasket.
Did my annual "drain the pan & new filter" routine and discovered I didn't
have the correct specs to reinstall the pan.
TIA

TorqueSpecs: good-n-tight


I personally use a 3/8 impact gun with a 4"
extension.....it's tight when the socket and
extension rattles.

WARNING........
my 3/8 impact is worn out......adjust yours
accordingly.


but seriously folks.......
you could do it this way too.....

use a ratchet with a 6 inch extension, tighten
the pan bolts up to "snug"......then using only
one hand on the ratchet, tighten the pan bolts
up tight. Then.....using the other hand hit each
bolt one more time with jest a little nudge.

actually works faster than it sounds.

Fact.....not Fiction

I always torque mine to 14 Ft/Lbs. That is about the correct amount
based on the bolt size and hardness. You could go a little more but
the important thing is that they are all the same torque and not to
squeeze out the gasket.

Thanks for replies. I initially torqued to 10 ft-lbs. I'll drive for
awhile and recheck. While the pan was off it's now sporting a new drain
plug to make next year's job a little smoother.

don't go more than 15ft/lbs at the most... it's not the bolt you need
to worry about.. it's the aluminum the housing is made from.

The plug is a 1/2-13 nut & bolt. While the pan was off I drilled a 1/2 in.
hole & tack welded (I've got a small mig welder) a nut to the inside of the
pan. The nut has a couple hacksaw slots about 1/3rd of the way so oil can
drain from the bottom and not stop at a level the thickness of the nut. The
nut is tightened in place and tack welded on sides opposite the saw slots.
I use a hardware store copper washer as the actual seal. I've done this on
a couple vehicles. Just have to look at the bottom of the trans. to make
sure the location of the drain will not interfere with anything. Most auto
parts stores sell a drain kit that is tightened in place and has a 1/8 in.
pipe plug as the actual drain. While they are ok some residual oil will
remain in the pan.

Same ole question.......

How you gonna change the filter?
Yank it out through the drain hole?

Summit Racing, B&M, or any trans parts
house will sell you a drain plug kit for around
$8.00. Pop a hole in the pan and stick her
on in there.

No welding involved.

Though you may still have that residual left
in the pan.....you know.....bout a half a coffee
cup full. But not to worry......you can just
wipe that out with a rag.......
WHEN YOU TAKE THE PAN OFF TO CHANGE THE FILTER.


after all......that's why you do a service any ways .....ain't
it??????????????


hmmmmmm......maybe i've been wasting
my money all these years....changing the
oil filter when i done all them oil changes.


nah....

Nope. But I don't trust transmission flushes. AFTER I change the filter, I
like to drain the pan a couple of times over a period of a few weeks to get
more of the old fluid replaced. That's much more easily done with a plug
installed. Makes filter changes much less messy, too for those of us that
don't have a lift to put the vehicle on.
