Hello everyone,
I'm almost finished with my break-in period, and was planning on changing the engine oil + filter, and maybe the diff/trans fluid as well.
I went through the owners manual but couldn't find torque specs for the drain plugs, only the amount of fluid to replace. Does anyone know this information, or have a service manual they can share? Thanks in advance!

Is the diff/trans fluid also necessary to replace after the break-in period? Asking out of general curiosity.

I use the grunt torque method. Using a standard size 1\4" drive ratchet tighten the drain plug until you let out a little grunt. But just a little one not a full size giving birth kind of grunt.

From the owners manual pg 382
with a filter 5.3 qt
without filter 5.1 qt

the only torque spec I've seen in the manual is for the wheels, I dont see the oil drain plug spec.

I would also like to know where I can find a service manual. I've done a few searches and seem to find nothing each time.
the only thing I've found is the owners manuals we already have: 2022 Toyota 86 Manuals & Warranties | Toyota Owners

I've read enough to know that there's always a group that says no, and a group that says yes.
For me personally, I don't mind spending a little bit for new fluid since I DIY at home, and gives me some peace of mind.

If it’s an aluminium crush washer combined with a M14 plug = 35-40 NM for the oil pan.
I believe its an M16 for the drain plug and the crush washers I was given were copper, not sure if they are the correct material though.

I just found this which is for the last generation, I'd imagine a lot of these should be the same for the the GR86.

In that thread is says the oil drain plug spec is 28.9 ft lb for the last generation of twins.
