Toyota Camry Bolt Torque Specifications

Save

Torque specifications for parts on a Toyota Camry can depend on a number of factors, including engine type and the manufacturer of the parts. The model year of the car can also make a difference. Torque specifications of each component's fasteners are vital to the stability of the engine and frame.

Fluid Pans

  • The oil pan under the car is mounted with bolts tightened to around 80 inch-pounds. The pan that contains the automatic transmission fluid is mounted with its bolts tightened to approximately 69 inch-pounds; the drain plug is tightened to 35 to 36 foot-pounds. A manual transmission does not have a pan but the drain and fill plugs have the same torque as the drain plug on the automatic.

Engine

  • As a general rule, a four-cylinder engine requires more torque than a V-6. The throttle body is mounted to a torque of less than 100 inch-pounds for a V-6 engine or 20 to 22 foot-pounds for a four-cylinder. The fuel rail is usually mounted at a torque of 84 to 180 inch-pounds. The spark plugs torque from 160 inch-pounds to 20 foot-pounds. The intake manifold typically requires from 130 inch-pounds to 22 foot-pounds, while the exhaust manifold nuts and bolts are from 27 to 36 foot-pounds.

Brakes

  • The brake calipers are often mounted at a torque of 25 foot-pounds, while the torque plate bolts are about 79 foot-pounds for the front brakes and 34 to 46 foot-pounds for the rear. The brake hoses connect to the caliper with a banjo bolt at a torque of about 22 foot-pounds. This can vary depending on whether the Camry uses TMC brand or TMMK brand brakes.

Suspension

  • Most bolts fastening the ball joints to the steering knuckles and control arms require a torque of just over 90 foot-pounds. The struts have upper mounting nuts tightened to 30 (rear struts) or 60 (front) foot-pounds; the bolts connecting it to the steering knuckle are around 155 foot-pounds and the damper shaft nut is around 35 foot-pounds. The stabilizer bar connects to the strut with a link whose bolts have a torque of 30 (rear) to 55 (front) foot-pounds.
