Hi, 

 

The rocker cover has been leaking from the gasket ever since I got the car last year. However I knew it was a common problem on this engine so have left it.

Now i'm using the car (been under cover for 8 months) it's making the engine bay messy. So I've ordered a new gasket - only £1.80 from Car Parts 4 Less

 

My question is would it be worth using a gasket sealant when I fit the new gasket, to stop the leak from coming back or should the new gasket be enough?

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

a new gasket should be enough, make sure the mating surfaces are clean and the bolts are torqued correctly.
