Re: replacing intake gasket, help!!
When you go to use silicone on your cover dont just use blue silicone. Make sure the silicone you use is compatable with motor oil. If the oil attacks it, it will just leak there again and fall into your engine plugging screens and oil passages. Also when you use a bunch make sure it isnt too much, just enough to seal the gap. If you go using too much there is a very good possibility of beads breaking off and falling into your engine. These beads could clog oil pickup screens and oil passages, and bye bye goes your engine. I'm not saying dont ever use silicone, just be aware of what silicone, if used improperly, could do to your engine. Stout Scout
