    I am thinking they want 35 ft lbs. The only reference calls for reinstalling drain plugs and installing screen and I assume the 35 ft lbs is for drain plugs and sump screen. I can't say I have ever torqued one personally. I just snug it up. Can't go too tight since the plug is plastic.

    I saw the 35lb ft listed in the owner's manual. It stated tighten "drain screws" to 35 lb ft. The drawing calls the screen plug a "drain plug", not screw, and being plastic, I worry 35 lb ft might be too much.

    I hope to get to this oil change/screen cleaning today.
