intake gasket on 1.6 ??

Simple question.... Should I install the intake manifold gasket dry (I believe it is a metal gasket), or should I use some type of sealant? Thanks....

All Good Medicine,

Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......

Re: intake gasket on 1.6 ??

dry would be best you could use some cooper coat spray to help hold it up for instalion but you should not have to use any sealant

Re: intake gasket on 1.6 ??

If we can assume that the 1.6 and 1.3 are pretty much the same (aluminum against aluminum), the manual sez "just the gasket, please". On the 1.3 it is a paper-like substance.

The exhaust gasket is metallic and needs gasket goo on the manifold side...

In my prayers,

Re: intake gasket on 1.6 ??

Don't use any RTV on the intake. The gas and fumes will break it down over time and you could eventually suck some RTV thru into the block.

If you use the factory aluminum gaskets, you don't have to use RTV on intake or exhaust.
