Hi everyone, I'm a new member and this is my 1st post. I've just replaced the valve stem seals in my 07 PT Cruiser (2.4L w/turbo), and I'm about to bolt down the camshafts. My question is this: Should those cam bearing cap bolts be torqued dry, with anti-sieze, oil, or some other lubricant? Thanks for the help!

That's a good question. When I cleaned those bolts up, they did seem to have threadlocker on them. Thanks!
