03 Infiniti g35 coupe
I just recently changed my valve cover and the gasket due
to an oil leak. There is silicone between the gasket and
valve cover too for a better fit. My car is STILL leaking oil.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
Silicone better known as rtv sealer. In my opinion gaskets should be installed without the silicone goop about 98% of the time. Is your cam cover warped? If so a new gasket will never seal. Are you sure the cam cover is leaking? The cam cover gaskets on the 3.5 engine are the rubber type and do not need silicone. Also over-torquing the fasteners can cause them to leak.
