RTV on Oil Level Sensor Gasket

Greetings all,

my Oil Level Sensor is leaking around the gasket, is RTV a smart fix for this? Or are these gaskets decent OEM parts?

Don't use RTV on these cars. For the oil level sender, the new gasket should be fine provided the mating surfaces are clean and straight.

However, I would recommend using Hylomar PL-32 or PL-32A. This is the same stuff used on other parts of the engine, such as the timing cover.
Order on-line from,, so you get the exact items you need.

There is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to cars.
