I have a very slight oil leak coming from the oil pan gasket area. On page 9-594 of the service manual it shows a bolt tighting diagram. If I am reading this correct, the 2 rear bolts are torqued to 106 lb in and the rest are torqued to 18 lb ft.
I just want to confirm that this is correct before I put a torque wrench on them.........just don't want to break a bolt or strip out the block.

I broke one of the black keyless remotes for 2008LS3 coupe. The key itself is not broken just the remote where the key is inserted in. Does anyone know where to get replacement and does it need reprogramming especially bringing in the car to service to do that?
