4.0 Oil Sump Pan Gasket yes/no
Just putting back together my 4.0 and I have a basic question; Should I use the cork gasket that came in the gasket kit or just use a sealant on the pan to engine block mating faces?
There was no gasket there when I took it apart. Somthing tells me the supplied cork gasket is for a wrencher that doesnt know any better. The only experience I have with cork gaskets- even when well sealed and periodically tightened, is after about 8-10K miles they all leak.
I'm thinking that just sealant would be better in this application. Anyone out there w/ some good running experience on this? Help would be appreciated.
