Hello everyone, hope the holidays have been good to you all.
Right now I am in the removal phase of a LIM gasket change. My 93 is leaking coolant from the area underneath the throttle body, onto the trans and onto the ground. Everyday there is a fresh puddle, so i thought it time to fix it before it got worse. Oil looks good so im pretty sure it'* not getting sucked in.
1. I bought gaskets, TB, plenum, LIM, and thermostat, and fuel injector o-rings. ARE these all the gaskets ill need?
2. I asked the guy at napa which thread lock i need to use (shop manual says to use it). He didnt seem to know, he pointed and recommended either the red strength(high) or green (medium). Is this what i should be using? And if i use threadlock do i have to apply more than the recommended torque?
3. The LIM gasket set came with a stick of RTV. Will this be enough to complete the task? will i use it only on the LIM gasket, or should i use it elsewhere as well?
Any input is welcome
