intake

Postby gengomepyle [OP] » May 31st 2019, 6:20pm

ive been loosing coolant for a while now. its not leaking on the ground so im think its most likely the intake gasket leaking. ive watched videos on replacing the gaskets. ive looked the gaskets up and they only have the gaskets but nothing for the front and rear of the intake where the intake meets the block. do I just use silicone sealer for those areas?

Generally the gasket set comes with a tube of gasket maker for the front and rear of the intake manifold.

^ those are the ones. They're plastic-coated metal gaskets and will not fail like the OEM plastic gaskets.
