    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.

                Used to seal front and rear differential covers. Spread out evenly and has prevented leaks well. Cure time was quick but also gave me enough time to work with it.

                  I used this for the valve cover on my Corolla. I replaced it once about a year and a half ago and it still leaked. I did it again last week, and used a lot more rtv than last time. No more leaks from my valve cover. Put on a nice thin layer all the way around and use more on sharp corners, (around the cams). Don't over do it, but make sure you have a full layer of it between the head and gasket.

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

                  I needed some of this silicone for my rearend repair on my International dump truck. A bearing had gone out which caused me to have to pull it out and send it off to be repaired before it did anymore damage.

                  Putting it back in, I was told to use some silicone and put some around the housing which would seal off the rearend once it was bolted back up.

                  You would think a tube would do a lot but when you are needing a decent size bead to go around the housing, the stuff runs out pretty quick so luckily I had two tubes of this stuff.

                  Once I was finished, everything was sealed up and so far I have no leaks from my repair from where I used this stuff.

                  I've used this on our oil pans before and it also works great.

                      I've been using Permatex products since high school and that was 40 years ago without any issues or complaints. I've always been very impress with the performance of Permatex products and their Ultra Black® Maximum Oil Resistance RTV Silicone Gasket Maker is no different and did not disappoint. Excellent instant gasket maker for gear oil filler and drain plugs in manual transmissions.

                        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

                          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.
