    Torque limits for upper intake manifold on a 1999 Saab 9-5

    Hi, new to the forum but I am trying to help my daughter. The thermostat is out and I need go replace it. I have viewed the tutorial and it is pretty specific but it does not give me any requirements regarding tightening up the intake manifold bolts. As far as I can see those are the only ones that would have torque limits. Can anyone out there help me? Appreciate it. Thanks, David, aka djdog.

    Which engine, V6 or four cylinder turbo?

    Here is a handy page with some 9-5 torque specs (I don't see the intake manifold bolts there, however...): SAAB 9-5 torque settings

    Thank you for your time. It will at least give me a guide to some of the limits used. Wouldn't think it was just "tighten it up," but... Anyway this helps. David.

    Sorry, it is a 6 cylinder turbo.. In looking at the torque limits my "guess," since it is not listed is in the 16 lb range. I will check it when I take it off but as it is not listed.... Thank you again david
