What is the torque needed to tighten the filter correctly on a 2006 Mazda 3 assuming you have the special tool for changing the oil filter?

Apply oil to the filter gasket before installing. After the filter makes contact with the mounting surface, turn it exactly 3/4 turn. No more or no less. It will not leak and will not be too difficult to remove. You will probably never need the filter wrench again.

there is no way to tighten your belt it has an automatic belt tensioner if it is making noise it may be the tensioner or the belt also check to see if it routed correctly

Tighten them too loose and they may come off. Tighten them too tight and you may warp the brake rotor. For those reasons it is critical to torque them correctly.

The cylinder head torque on a 2000 Honda Civic is set at two different rates. For placing the head correctly the bolts need to be tighten to 22 ft torque. Once correctly set the bolts will need 49 ft torque to be properly tighten.
