Rear diff? Stop it!!!
Ever since I had the rear diff drained, cleaned up and had a new gasket put on, the cover bolts keep backing out. I'll discover a drip/leak down there every month or so. It was tight as a drum before. What do I need to do, so these bolts stay put?
I like you.

Blue loctite is appropriate for most vehicular applications. I would NOT use red loctite, as heat -must- be applied to remove it and the melting temp of the substance is 200F if what I've read regarding it is accurate.

Like @SurrealOne said, Blue loctite. But, you have to make sure that you clean every hole out with brake parts cleaner and dry them with compressed air. You must also clean the bolts. If there is oil or dirt on the bolts or in the holes the loctite will be pointless.
