Oil Drain Plugs???

Has anyone had trouble with the engine drain plug and frame drain plug? I bought a torque wrench for these and when i go to torque them, it seems as though I'm putting WAY TOO MUCH pressure on the bolts. The torques are 14# engine bolt, 7.2# oil filter bolts, and 17# frame bolt. Do you think it might be the wrench? It is brand new???? Any info would be appreciated :)

Sounds like a bad wrench. Can you try another one? 14 lbs should feel like over tightening.


Ooops...I meant that it shouldn't feel like you're over tightening.
