Lift bolts

Recommended Posts

For the two lift bolts on the 2zzge engine, is the correct torque spec as follows....? :

5.5 FT LBS

or converted to

7.45 NM

Reason being the mechanic who is doing my engine work didn't have a torque wrench that goes that low, and was surprised as he has never torqued that low even on bikes he has worked on in the past.

Just wanted to check that these are the correct torque specs on this engine, and that it is 100% crucial that they need to be set at this.

Hi,

Seems most 1/4" torque wrenches will do from 5-25 NM.   even Toolstation etc stock them.

Looking in the whole forum and web , it does seems those values are correct.

The link has some very clear details of replacing the bolts on a Celia.

Had my mechanic torque them to the specs listed in the link provided, and thankfully the car still hits lift just fine.

 

Thanks.

Anything below 15 ft lb is snug then a little bit unless its something major or on an aircraft

Don't have a 1.8 VVLI, but interested by the regular comments about renewing the lift bolts.

Found this informative SV / Toyota Servicing video about the Lift system, but strangely no mention at all about the lift bolts and their role in the Lift function ?
