Although I have V 8's, before I changed the valve cover gaskets on both vehicles I asked my mechanic buddy if I should use RTV (gasket silicone) and he said I shouldn't have to. After about 1000 miles I checked the wife's coils and all but 1 spark plug tube had oil in them. I ended up having to do both cars again and used the sealant the second time around. On mine there was a valve cover bolts loosening pattern outside bolts to center and opposite for tightening. Keep up the good work.
