Default Transmission Bolts

Hello,
I have a 2003 PT Cruiser would like to know if there is a pattern on how to tighten the bolts on the transmission oil pan? I was told that some pans have to have the bolts tighten in order to make the seal of the gasket right from not leaking.

Thank you,
Leroy

From Haynes:

Place the oil pan into position and install the bolts finger tight. Working side to side from the center out tighten the bolts to the proper torque.

Now I suppose you'll ask what the proper torque is:

105 in-lbs or 12 Nm

Can you tell me what you mean from the center out?
And thank you for this information.

Are you sure you should be doing this kind of maintenance?

There's bolts on either side, 5 of them to be exact. The 3rd bolt from either end is the center bolt. Start from there on one side, then the center bolt on the other side. Go back to the first side that you started with and go to the next bolt on either side of the center bolt and tighten that one. Now go back to the other side of pan and tighten either one of the bolts on the left or right of the center. Back and forth, back and forth tightening one bolt at a time working from the center bolt on each side towards the bolts on the end.

Crewzin, I have a source (Hayne's Manual ... not that I really trust them completely) and the manual says to tighten the pan bolts to 165 inch pounds. I wonder if different years have different torque?

Tim,

You are right (hope Leroy is still around), I went too fast and looked up the oil pan torque instead of the trans pan. 165 in-lbs or 19 NM is correct. I'll send him a PM to make sure he has the correct info. Thanks
