If you replaced the gasket,you dont need RTV sealant, be careful how tight you make those bolts. 10 INCH pounds is enough! Not foot lbs!!!

Posted on May 01, 2013

Testimonial: "Hi. Haynes says there are 5 areas on the engine edges around caps or something that require (not optional) RTV for the install not to leak. This is whether or not you use anything on the gasket itself."

  • Chris X May 01, 2013

    The spec for my car is 52 in-lbs. I was going to back off to 35 in-lbs but my wrench starts at 20 in-lbs.

  • Brad Brown May 03, 2013

    I know of no manufacturers that use or recommend RTV. I checked on the torque and it is 53 inch pounds. On a torque wrench, the lower end of the scale is usually not as accurate

  • Chris X May 03, 2013

    So you're saying don't follow Haynes. Gotcha. Thanks.

  • Chris X May 03, 2013

    This prolly won't matter but just in case I'm failing to explain it properly.

I had the same water leak issue with my 2005 uplander LT. I seal around the drain tube with RTV and I actually put a flexible plastic tube on the drain at the firewall to make sure water wasn't coming in. Although this is a known common problem. It did not fix my water leak. What I found is the body seam weld at the driver's side kick panel down by the parking brake pedal was leaking. Pull the carpet back and have someone spray the windshield with a water hose and look for leaks in this area. I had to loosen the driver's side fender to pull it away enough so that I could RTV (sealant) all of the seams in that area. I have not had a water problem since.

I have a 1995 jeep cherokee straight six or 4.0 liter where is the radiator thermosta soo i can replace it

Hi, It is actually called an engine thermostat, as it regulates coolant flow through the engine. If you follow the top large hose coming off the radiator to where it connects onto the engine, you will find a housing there connected to the engine with 2 bolts. There may be another hose connected to this housing also. You will lose a bit of coolant when doing this, so use a bunch of rags under the work area and a catch pan beneath the vehicle.
Parts needed: Thermostat, gasket, tube of black RTV sealant, new clamps for hoses if they look rusty or do not have good resistance on removal. (for factory spring type clamps)

Remove hoses from housing and bend back and tape back out of the way (use some cable ties if you wish) to keep coolant from running everywhere and so they are out of your work area. Remove 2 bolts holding the thermostat housing to engine. Gently tap housing with rubber hammer to break the gasket seal on housing. Once housing is off, you will find the thermostat underneath. Remove thermostat from engine. Clean the housing and engine mating sufaces of all traces of gasket material. Surfaces must be clean and dry before re-assembly. Use a rag to soak some coolant out of engine side hole to facilitate cleanup. Scrape off gasket material and use brake cleaner to wipe off residue and dry with clean shop rag. There are 2 types of thermostats for the jeeps, one has a rubber seal around the thermostat, and requires no other gasket, the other has no seal and requires a separate paper type gasket to be sealed to the mating surfaces. I believe the straight 6 has the paper type. Install thermostat with spring end into engine cavity. Put a thin even coating of black RTV sealant on the engine mating surface. Place gasket on RTV coated surface, aligning the bolts holes to holes in gasket. Apply thin even coat of black RTV sealant to thermostat housing mating surface. Put a small amount of RTV sealant on threads of bolts (clean them first) coating the entire thread. Put housing onto engine and install bolts finger tight - firmly seated. Allow RTV to cure for 5 minutes. Some RTV will squish out, thats OK, but use the RTV as a THIN EVEN coat, as you dont want a bunch of excess sealant in the thermostat cavity. Torque bolts to 16-20 ft. lbs. or a good wrist tightening. DO NOT overtorque, as you will either crack the housing, or cause warpage making your gasket leak. Re-install hoses and tighten clamps. If spring type clamps were on the hoses, replace the small clamp with a band type clamp. If large clamp installs tightly, it can be reused. If it was rusty and goes on rather easily/weakly - replace with a band type clamp. Refill - check coolant level, add as needed. Start engine, allow to reach operating temperature and check for leaks. Done!

Have a coolant leak near oil filter adapter. Changed gasket, but still leaking. Installed gasket dry. Should I have used gasket sealant such as Permatex Blue RTV? Or maybe the leak is from something else?

any time you use a paper gasket you should use sealant or it will leak. I would run it after you apply the blue rtv, let it warm up, and inspect for other leaks, sometimes you won't see it until you shut the car off when it warms up to normal operating temp. hope this helps

How do i remove the oil pan


CAUTION The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used. (except 2.5 Premier engine)


Fig. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the lubrication system for all 2.2L and 2.5L except Premier engines


Fig. Fig. 7: Apply sealant to the ends of the new oil pan end seals at the junction of the cylinder block pan rail gasket-1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L except Premier engines


Fig. 8: Clean the gasket mating surface of the oil pan of all old gasket material, dirt, grease or other grime-2.6L engine
  1. Apply the parking brake, block the rear wheels, then raise and safely support the front of the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Drain the engine oil. This would also be a good time to change the oil filter.
  3. Remove the engine-to-transaxle struts, if so equipped. These struts prohibit access to the oil pan mounting bolts.
  4. Remove the torque converter or clutch inspection cover.
  5. Support the oil pan and remove the mounting bolts.
  6. Lower the pan and remove the old gasket, if so equipped.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket surfaces thoroughly.
  2. For 2.6L engines, position a new gasket on the oil pan using a sealer to hold it in place.
1981-87 2.2 and 2.5 Liter engine uses a liquid form-in-place type gasket. Chrysler Part Number 4205918, or equivalent RTV gasket material must be used.
  1. For 1981-87 2.2 and 2.5L engines, install new end seals and apply the form-in-place gasket sealant. The RTV gasket material should be applied in a continuous bead approximately 1 / 8 in. (3mm) in diameter. All mounting holes must be circled. Uncured RTV may be removed with a rag. The oil pan should be tightened in place while the RTV is still wet to the touch (within 10 minutes). The usage of a locating dowel is recommended during assembly to prevent smearing of the material off location. Make sure to apply sealer where the end seals meet the block.
1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines utilize end seals and side gaskets, not liquid gasket as with 1981-87 models.
  1. On 1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines, install new end seals and side gaskets. Apply RTV sealant to the parting lines between the end and side seals on these engines. If necessary, use a little grease or RTV sealant to hold the side seals in place.
  2. Tighten the pan bolts in a crisscross fashion, starting from the center of the oil pan and working toward the ends, to the following torque values:
    2.6L engine-53-61 inch lbs. (5.9-6.8 Nm) 1981-87 2.2L and 2.5L engines-16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) 1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines-M8 bolts, 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm); M6 bolt, 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
  3. Allow the oil pan to sit for 15 minutes to ensure that the RTV sealant has completely set.
  4. Install the oil drain plug and a new oil filter, if equipped, then lower the vehicle.
  5. Refill the engine with oil
  6. Start the engine and check for oil leaks.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?

You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.
