Recommended Posts

What are the torque specs for 1997 Lexus ES300 engine oil pan bolt? I can't find it in the user manual. Web search gives different results.

If you are referring to the bolts that are removed to drop the pan, this is what I found.

The torque specification for the engine oil pan bolt on a 1997 Lexus ES300 is approximately 12 ft-lbs. When tightening the bolts, use an even pattern to ensure the gasket remains undamaged and prevents leaks.

I was actually referring to the torque specs to tighten the bolt at the bottom of the pan to drain the engine oil.
