Induction system and adhesives

815 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  eldorado1
I have a simple question. I know years ago there was a big concern with using any kind of silicone in or around the induction system, as it caused harm to sensors.

I would like to use glue on something for my custom Volant install and was wondering if I have to be cautious of this. It would not be silicone, probably construction adhesive.

Will this hurt anything?

:stirpot: Most silicone adhesives, while curing, release acetic acid (that vinegar smell) which is what can mess up various sensors. Some forms of latex construction adhesives cure by polymerization/drying. Lurk through the adhesives section of your local mega-home store and read the tube labels. Not sure what the liquid black adhesive, that GM uses around weatherstrip and warranty leak fixes, is based on.
