Breakaway torque is the torque required to start the initial movement, in the loosening direction, of a bolt, screw, or nut from its (non−loaded) at rest position with the locking element engaged.

Oil pan leaking on 1997 Honda accord seek repair answer?

If the pan is leaking at the mounting surface on the engine, then try tightening the pan bolts to 6 ft/lb of torque. If that does not stop the leak you will need to remove the oil pan and replace the gasket. If it is leaking at the drain plug, replace the gasket with a fiber gasket and toss the metal one. If it still leaks at the drain plug you will have to have the pan removed and welded and new threads cut as the threads are stripped or the pan is distorted.

Remove the oil pan. Clean the pan throughly inside and out. Scrap all the old gasket from the edge of the pan. Install the new gasket making sure that it does not slip. You can hold the gasket in place with thread tied very loosely or by applying a slight amount of Vaseline to the edge of the pan. Tighten all the bolts in a criss cross pattern very slowly until they are hand tight. Finish tightening them in a criss cross pattern until they are torqued to 12 lb/ft of torque. Caution: Do not over or under tighten these bolts. They must me torqued to 12 lb/ft.
