hey guys, i ran into a little problem, i dont even know what is the cause or possible result of this but the small nuts on my engine manifold appear to be unscrewed half way, and one of them (3 total) is missing. the only thing i could think of is maybe some internal pressure is making the nuts unscrew themselves but im pretty confused for the most part. if someone could explain to me what could be the cause of this id greatly appreciate it, thanks

If you are referring to the 2 nuts on the front/sides of the upper manifold that hold that to the lower manifold studs then I highly doubt that happened from internal pressures. I'd say they either weren't bolted to spec or were never tightened. There are multiple large bolts that would have had to back out as well and you would have seriously obvious running issues.

I'd have to see a pic if you are talking about some other nuts. Most fasteners in the manifold area are bolts.
