Thermostat, Gasket + Sealant?


Recommended Posts

I'm replacing the thermostat and gaskets (one at thermostat and the one between intake manifold). I noticed there was some sealant used from the factory. I was thinking only use one or the other, not both.

Should I use some sealant with the gaskets? What kind?

All depends on what the two halves of the housing look like and the style of gasket. If the housing halves are pitted and its a plain paper gasket, then yes, a thin film of sealer is a good idea. If the gasket is a rubber oring type or its a paper gasket with a silicone bead embedded, then extra sealer is likely not needed.
