You can not use that model for the torque you require. A larger capacity torque wrench will be needed.

How much torque on a 2001 grand am water pump bolts

On a 3.4L grand am, my info says 89 inch lbs. You local auto store will sell torque wrenches, inch pounds or ft pounds. For small torque, I use inch pounds torque wrench. If you snug it up, you should be ok. I'm not saying crank on it for all your worth, just snug it up or use a torque wrench. Just keep an eye out for leaking?

I have a 99 R1, and I am installing a flywheel. It needs to be torqued to 9.5lbs. If it's tightened with a socket wrench is the 9.5 lbs achievable?

Use an Inch pound torque wrench (very cheap to buy), then set it to the conversion of 9.5 ft pounds to inch pounds which is 114 inch pounds.

Torques of ring gear & pinion

Varies with manufacturers. Rings gears are around 130 foot pounds, I use locktite on these bolts. Pinion is way different. Some are 250 foot pounds. Ones with crush sleeves are measure in inch pounds. With these you are measuring the drag on the pinion gear with out the differential installed yet. Usually between 15 and 30 inch pounds. I try to set them at the lower end, that way if it ever comes apart again, the sleeve can be reused.

I need to know where the timing marks is on a 1997 plymouth breeze 2.0 liter

I strongly recommend you consult a repair manual for the timing belt install procedure. Depending if you have a hydraulic or mechanical tensioner for the belt, the procedure is different. If you register for free at, listing make, model and year, you could find the procedure under "repair guides".
Here is a shortened guide: Align notch of crank sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing, then back off 3 notches or teeth, (counterclockwise to back off).
Align notch of cam sprocket with mark on the inner belt cover-it is at top of engine-notch on cam will be almost straight up.
Move crankshaft to 1/2 notch before arrow on oil pump housing. Install belt starting at crankshaft, then around water pump, then around camshaft sprocket last.
Move crank to TDC (notch right with arrow) to take up belt slack.
Reinstall tensioner, and tighten fasteners as follows: Mechanical tensioner-250 inch pounds.
Hydraulic tensioner assembly pulley bolt-50 foot pounds. Hydraulic tensioner assembly and pivot bracket bolt-23 foot pounds.
Remove tensioner plunger pins-for either mechanical or hydraulic tensioners. Tension is correct when plunger pin can be removed and replaced easily.
Rotate crankshaft at least two revolutions, and recheck timing marks.
Reinstall timing belt cover, engine mount bracket, engine mount, and crankshaft damper. Tighten crank damper pulley bolt to 105 foot pounds.
Reinstall drive belts and accessories.

I know the info on the tensioner is confusing: why you need to consult a repair manual or register at autozone. You have to compress the plunger on the hydraulic tensioner after removing it and insert a pin (a very small Allen wrench works-5/64 inch Allen wrench). If a mechanical tensioner, you will need an 8 mm Allen wrench to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise (this is before or after removed from engine), the use a 1/8 inch or 3 mm Allen wrench to insert into plunger hole, to hold the tensioner retracted until installed. See what I mean? Post back if unclear...or just find the repair procedure. Sorry, no diagrams available for me. I'm too old and crochety-lol.

Question there are four settings on the air impact wrench 119106 I need to set to specific foot pounds are each of the four setting equal to a specific foot pound per inch (ie: setting one is 50 pounds...

if you dont use hand tools often you should never trust the torque from impact wrench you should always recheck with tension wrench for correct torque specs
or at least hand tools such as breaker bar, spanner, ratchet
depending on what your doing up and diameter of bolt or studd for what application

I am replacing the intake gasket on my 2005 pacifica and need the torque specs and sequence tighten it back down

If you are looking at the engine from the front and the large hose is at the bottom right the tightening sequence is from upper left to right 6237 bottom left to right 5148 just like I typed it torque is 250 inch pounds on lower intake and 105 inch pounds on the upper intake. So when you look at those numbers you tighten 12345678 in that order to 250 inch pounds in 3 increments then install the top intake.
