Good Stuff

I recently used this sealant during a transmission pan drop on my truck. 2 Weeks later and no leaks what so ever. Easy to apply, fast curing, highly recommended.

Great product and good price but please stop sending survey request to me every other day! I bought auto parts from you, not a mercedes with road side assistance! Your repeated request for me to take an 8 minute survey actually tempts me to use another store for future shopping.

Good all around sealant

Comments about Permatex Ultra Black Maximum Oil Resistance RTV Silicone Gasket Maker (3.35 oz):

This is pretty much the only RTV gasket maker I use. Anything from my 1968 VW Beetle, to my 2004 Turbocharged Jetta. It doesn't take a long time to cure, which is something I like. I have learned that if you don't cap the tube immediately after you have used it, that the sealant at the top will start to cure. The next time you try and use it the sealant at the top will be cured and you will have to dig out that plug to get soft stuff to come out. I would suggest that so you don't end up with a tube of sealant that you can't get any sealant out of it.

    Comments about Permatex Ultra Black Maximum Oil Resistance RTV Silicone Gasket Maker (3.35 oz):

    I read other reviews, one stated that a differential leak developed. He admitted it was because he didn't read the directions. You're supposed to apply the silicone, immediately install on clean metal after using brake cleaner or such, hand tighten until material squeezes out, wait an hour, then properly torque down bolts, THEN allow to completely cure before filling with oil. They recommend 24 hours.

        I've been using this product for years and always carefully clean and reseal. As of late the caps have been cracking. The first one I cracked I blamed on myself. But the second one cracked on a brand new tube so I thought they are cheapening the caps or they're defective. Look carefully because sometimes you can't see it without looking close. Then the end hardens and you got the dig the plug out to use it. PITA.

            I applied this product on the oil pan for my Honda motorcycle and it has since developed a leak. What do you recommend for removing the product from the pan and flange? thanks

              A:

              Hi Randalla! Glad I could be of some help. The bulk of the cured material should be removed with plastic scraper. The residue left behind should be removed with any RTV silicone dissolver that can be available at the local stores.
