Do not overtighten your oil pan bolts. You can check to see if they are to spec and replace the gasket but I wouldn't just go down there and start pounding on them. Get a better vid during the day.

speaking of overtightening. where can you get a torque wrench that measures like under 120 inch pounds. i have been looking around, and all the wrenches that measure inch lbs start at like 180-900in-lbs.

Just curious, sorry to thread jack, lol.
