Today AA83 FRA-ORD, a Boeing 767-300, returned to Frankfurt after departure, but has since taken off again for Chicago. Does anyone know why?

It was because of MX. I don't know the exact problem but it just said MX.

Left engine anti-ice system failure. Maint. fixed the problem and the flight departed.

Why does an engine need anti-ice systems? Isn't an engine in flight very hot?

Not near the front of the engine. IIRC, 767 Engine Anti-Ice provides heat to the leading edge of the engine cowling. One can operate the plane without it, but the plane can not enter ETOPS operations without maintenance first addressing the issue. Hence, the return to FRA and subsequent re-departure.

For the 'lips' of the cowling. Same as a wing, an engine needs smooth, undisrupted air. Icing in and around the engine inlet would quickly disrupt the smooth airflow.
