Do Fel Pro Gaskets need sealant?
In this regard, do intake gaskets need sealant?
Equally important, the intake manifold and head surfaces must be clean (no grease, oil or coolant film) and dry. RTV, other sealants or adhesives should not be used around the coolant or intake ports on carrier-style gaskets. New intake manifold bolts are recommended.
Subsequently, question is, do you use sealant on cork gaskets? Number 2 sealants work best on cork gaskets or paper oil pan gaskets. They are often used on neoprene transmission pan gaskets as well. Aviation form-a-gasket has the advantage of being brushable, so you can lay on a thin or thick coat to seal metal flanges, machined surfaces and solid gaskets.
In this way, are Fel Pro Gaskets any good?
Yes they are good quality. I've used a Fel-Pro stock type head gasket in my Civic twice with no problem. Once when the original gasket blew, second time I needed to remove head and replace a burnt valve.
