    I just recently replaced my power steering pump and was wondering if the bolts have to be torqued to a specific number. I hand tightened them pretty good and they're no leaks...just thought I would get a second opinion. Thanks guys

    Not a 2nd gen expert, but suggest If its into Aluminum its important, look up the Torque value, if its into metal snug will do. You can always put a dab of blue threadlocker if you think its a concern!
