Just had my 2nd one done at 151,000....belt was showing typical wear but no other problems....So i did the usual stuff both belts, tensioner's and idler's, went ahead and did the water now at idle it has a wine coming from water pump goes away as the rpm's build up....think that will be changed while under warranty.

Then today i noticed on my way home from work more vibration...which i figured poly mounts and cold weather...typical right....well raised the hood and both bolts that bolt into the block over the timing cover had backed out....the one's the motor mount is attached to. In fact the one behind the belt probably would have fell out if not for the belt. retightened them 14mm best i could...wonder do they need thred locker on them??

Anyone else have these bolts come loose??
