    Default Drain Plug Torque

    What is the torque for the drain plug on a 03 Duramax? I remember it was quite high. Thanks

    I like to use a 4 foot 1/2" Breaker bar and get it as tight as I possibly can.

    Well, when you're only 3 1/2 feet tall, you need all the help you can get!!!

    Exactly, 4 foot 1/2" breaker bar as tight as I can get it (3 lbs of pressure) equals 62 ft. pounds of torque.

    According to everything I have read, there is a crush washer that you're supposed to replace everytime you do the oil, hence the high torque figure.
