    Anyone know how/why this happens. I'm guessing from the expanding and contracting of the engine and components due to heat.

    Aluminum engine, plastic intake, steel bolts.
    All have different expansion coefficients...

    A little blue LockTite shouldn't hurt anything.

    We don't see the problem in the Seville/Eldorado or Deville forums.
