FYI most all repair manuals have pages that show general torque values for fasteners which will assist with question regarding torque values.

Yes thanks for that, but the Haynes ones have them all over the place. Not like factory manuals who have dedicated pages

I "think" with the Haynes manuals the torque specs are located on the first page of whatever chapter your looking at???

The factory service manual says to lay a bead of RTV silicone, snug the pan, and then torque it down after 24 hours.

?? what PT Cruiser FSM is that?

Even All Data has a torque setting.

You may re-read FSM the next part after


"Apply an 1/8" bead of Mopar ATF RTV (MSGF41) to oil pan and immediately install to case.


Install oil pan-to-case bolts and torque to 19N-m (165 in. lbs)


Referance 81-370-05061B
21-365 41TE Automatic Transaxle 66-67

Also ATSG UPDATE Handbook has lots of information regarding issues and procedures.




Chilton repair manual also stipulates that to use the listed factory torque for the transmission pan bolts.

Here you go.




PS: I believe you can download a complete service manual that covers your 2002 Euro PT at this link:

Yep. You are correct. That's what the Chrysler service manual says about the RTV. But the manual I have doesn't say anything about waiting 24 hours.




However, I personally prefer to use a bead of RTV to fix a paper gasket to the pan. This helps fill in irregularities that may be on the pan or transmission case facing. I've done this many time on this type and other transmissions and have never had a leak or problem unless there was a crack in the case.
