Well, as was suggested I got down on my butt to check. I had searched on line to ask what the troque value would be for 1/2" bolts. It said 75 pounds...grade five which sounded like too much to me. Anyway, armed with my torque wrench set at 75 pounds I went to check. I was amazed at how loose they were. I tightened all a bit but certainly not to 75 pounds! So, can someone give some guidance on the torque for oil pan bolts?? And.....behold.....while I am down there within range of my reading glasses I see oil dripping from the line that runs from oil filter canister around the front of the engine. So, I snugged the two nuts attaching the line to the bottom of the canister hoping that may be the problem. Mission creep!?!
Thoughts from anyone....everyone....? Dave
