No, You don't put anything on Head, Exahust or intake gaskets. CJ
actually you do put a 1/8'th inch bead of black silicone on the gasket to ensure no leaks occur and it also helps hold the gasket in place when your putting the intake manifold on. I'm a Ford master technician, you ALWAYS use silicone when replacing intake and head gaskets.
In most cases a new gasket is required, but no sealant.
You need the sealant on the ends where the supplied gaskets don't cover fully.
Not that I've heard of. Replacing the gaskets and inspecting the manifold for warping or cracks is the best way to stop intake vacuum leaks.
There should be a stud (not a bolt) threaded in to the head and the stud should have a thread sealant applied to the threads.
Yes, wherever there is a joint between 2 pipes, use exhaust sealant to prevent a bad seal between the pipes, which will prevent it blowing.
when replacing a frost plug u can use a sealant but only use silicone u dont realy need it and yes u have to clean the area good
From experience I would say yes
Yes. You should use a high temperature silicon sealant.
On the 3.1 LS model, the thermostat is in the intake manifold, just underneath the air intake, and between the exhaust crossover and the manifold. Trace the upper radiator hose back to a metal pipe from the engine, that is the thermostat housing. Replacing it means using a ratcheting box-end (10mm?) or open end wrench to start and finish, and fingertips for the rest, so NOT when the engine is hot! The thermostat fits horizontally into the manifold, and comes with its own molded gasket, which fits into a recess, and doesn't require gasket sealant. I just changed mine, so good luck.
Possibly. Only add sealant if it is called for by the manufacture.
no, but you can replace the gasket entirely add the sealant ensuring a leak free fit.
no, use rtv sealant
new o-rings coated with A/C PAG oil
**I meant to add that the radiator cap is not to be found on this vehicle. Can it go into the coolant fill tank?
I my self would not, That's what gaskets are for. unless there is some inperfections were the gaskets go,if there is use a small amount of sealant only. and be sure its OEM sealer. And install gaskets.
Thermostats in most vehicles have seals and gaskets that are designed so you do not need any aditional sealant.
replacing the windsnield requires special tools and urethane sealant which is not available to the general public. so leave it to the pros. You can pick up urethane sealant for auto glass at most parts stores.
To replace the valve cover gaskets on a 2003 Jeep Liberty, the valve cover is removed. The old gasket is then removed from both the valve cover and the manifold (old gasket will come off in pieces on both sides). Then spread the sealant on the manifold, place the new gasket on, then put sealant on top of the gasket and replace the valve cover and bolt down.
Usually not if the bolts are still in good shape (not rusted too badly or the threads aren't stripped.) I would advise getting some bolt sealant and rub a bit of it on your bolts before you reinstall your manifold. Hope this helps!
Depending on what type of leak you are trying to fix sealants that get put in the radiator may work for a while. But my experience says not long. If you are installing a new one, do not use any sealant not recommended in the gasket kit. If you are blowing white smoke out the exhaust, there are a couple of different brands that have copper in them. One is in a bottle, mostly clear liquid with the copper settled to the bottom. If the coolant is only going out the exhaust, follow the instructions and I have never had this fail. If coolant is getting in the oil or exhaust is getting into the radiator it will not help.
No sealant is used in that application.
i used the sealant to make sure the parts were stuck together, it worked better at sticking them together than glue.
When using a new pan gasket, no sealant is necessary. Using sealant on a automatic transmission pan gasket is a bad idea, excess sealant can cause trouble.
The Chevrolet water pump bolts do need a sealant. Thread tape can be used on the bolts in the place of a sealant.
I Use A small dab of pematex or similar sealant just enough to hold, make sure surface is clean.
