A 5/16" or 8mm nut driver works for checking them Ed,i just give them a good twist by hand,and you shouldn't be to far off the proper torque.It'll get you by till you do have time to check them with a torque wrench if you want to be all proper about it,lol
My 2019 kept throwing a CEL for O2 sensor. NE way to dealer, and they replaced the affected sensor? I left dealer, made left turn, drove to Burger King 1/4 mile away and wala, another code. Back to Dealer, and they checked and replaced second O2 sensor. Still no clear, so they ordered all 4 stock OEM (up stream/downstream)and threw them in, all good now.
Mechanic did not want to believe O2 gone bad on a 2019, but at least 2 were bad. Not hurt my feelings, warranty in action.

One Month Update: so post tightening the intake bolts, I did make a highspeed run Houston to Dallas 3rd week in March and generated a P2098 code when I got off the highway. Cleared the code and haven't seen anything yet after 100 starts and a few thousand miles so the intake bolts must be the issue as before it was generating CELs almost daily. I'm marking down problem solved. Thanks folks for the idea to check this....
