Torque Specifications?

Does anybody have a list of torque values for common maintenance items such as:

Spark Plugs
Wheels
Oil drain Pan and Filter (V6 I think it's 12lbs)
Differential fill/drain and transfer case?

I've always done things by feel but since I had to buy a torque wrench to work on my wife's Galant spark plug seals, I figured I'd start doing things right with the Jeep as well. I tried the search function but nothing came back.

Check the owners manual, the wheels will be there. Maybe the others also.

From 3.6L Oil Change PDF

Install the drain plug (1) in the oil pan and tighten to
27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.).

and

Thread the oil filter cap (1) into the oil filter housing
and tighten to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.).

One tip from that document is to LOOSEN/REMOVE Filter Cap either before or while the drain plug is removed so that it releases any oil held in the housing (presumably by vacuum).


That said, in decades of wrenching I've rarely used a torque wrench on things like that. I make an exception for the filter cap because the cap is composite and I don't want to crack it.

Thanks guys. I had changed the oil twice without the torque wrench. I am mostly concerned about the wheels. I have 1.5 spacers and am a bit concern they might be too tight. I also changed the differentials and transfercase without a torque wrench. Just used common sense.
