Common Torque secs

I'm a stickler on correct torque for nuts & bolts. I'm going to do a flush & fill of my coolant @ 4 years & 24K mi. on my N/A 3.5 L. I know it's soon , but I like preventative maintenance , especially on an engine like this with the coolant pump buried ridiculously in the oil sump timing chain area. In particular I need a torque specs for the thermostat housing, which I'm going to remove for flushing. Some common specs for torque on these Gen 6 Taurus vehicles would help too, like spark plugs & intake manifold bolts , that many will do here to change plugs.

Just did a transaxle F & F , 3 times , to get all the fluid refreshed , I measured & it was just a hair over 5 quarts on each drain.
