Some Chrysler dealerships don't even use gaskets.
They just glob on RTV and bolt things together.

I know that because that's how they put the transmission pan back on
one of my vehicles and I had to replace the tranny 6 months later when it
was all plugged up and wouldn't work. :evil:
Since then, I've been leery of using gasket sealers unless needed, and then sparingly.

I agree with the others about using a light coat on the pan side of the valve cover gasket.

Hi tack works well. I have used a light coat of RTV blue with good results too.

The key is not to use too much. Just a film.

If you have to use sealant on your manifold, it will need to be hi-temp, but

unless you have some bad pitting they will usually seal without it if cleaned well.

On Chryslers FWD had black RTV. That stuff was as tough as nails. RWD had gaskets...only. Figure that one out. Also Truck A/C people thought orifice tube was the greatest. Car A/C people thought expansion valve was...go figure.
