What Are Dodge Torque Specs?

Dodge torque specs are specifications for Dodge vehicles that indicate how much torque, or tightening, should be applied to bolts on the vehicle to ensure they stay fastened. Torque specs are used primarily on engine bolts, but are also available for tire lug nuts.

A torque wrench is used to measure resistance and comes in three basic types: the beam, click and dial type. The click and dial types require re-calibration on a scheduled basis, as they wear out over time. Torque is typically measured in the United States in inch-pounds, but foot-pounds can also be used. Engine torque specs are sometimes revised and owners should consult current reference material before attempting engine work.
