2.0 / 2.3 / 2.5 Specifications

This has the torque and sequence if you have the 4 cyl.

Just work your way around the pan, and make them snug. Not too tight. I've done a pan on a 4.0, and many other oil pans and trans pans and diff covers just like this with no problems.

**Post added for information purpose**

From the Ford Manual, there is no torque spec on the 4.0L OHV given in the book. It just says tighten them down.

There is a torque on the two Torx bolts, 62-88 lb/in

The picture below is for the 3.0L

Long as you tighten it evenly and in a cross pattern you should be good. don't go hog wild tightening it at 1st, snugged up is good. You can always go back and tighten it more, but if you crush that gasket to much you'll have to do it all over again.
