    2.8 valve cover gasket

    my 2.8 v6 valve cover gasket is leaking on the middle spark plug drivers side but I need the car as I'm away for next couple weeks so not got time to get new gasket delivered and fitted

    so what I was going to was pop the cover off and run a bit of silicone gasket seal round the gasket as temporary repair until I get back

    do you think this would work ?

    any decent motor factors (euro car parts, GSF, etc...) should carry a new gasket.

    But yeah, i have used a tube of quick gasket before now...

    lol it's not a gasket set kept on shelf, even euro car parts & gsf don't hold it locally i know I've checked today, so I cant get it replaced tomorrow

    I'll order one so I've got it when I'm back, I just need a fix for next couple weeks
