Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The bolts on the manifold studs are loose but it will not tighten

Hopefully the studs are stripped but not the threads in the hole. You can install new studs but if the hole is stripped it will need to be repaired with a helicoil.


If you install new studs re-tap the holes to clean up the threads.
