  1. . There is no SPECIFIC problem of corrosion between aluminiun and steel, THERE IS A GENERAL PROBLEM between any two different metals (and sometimes even different alloys). This is known as Galvanic Corrosion ; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_corrosion And has been taught to engineering students since at least the early 60's (and known about before).
