I have a 2003 Camry, 2.4 litre engine. This gasket kit came with 3 RTV tubes. Do I need to apply the RTV to gasket? The gasket appears to be made of paper.

Thank you

Hi Ray,

The 2.4L engine in your Camry has an "upper oil pan" and "lower oil pan." The RTV is used only if you are resealing the upper oil pan. The lower, stamped, oil pan is sealed with the gasket and no RTV should be used here.

The gasket a composite material that is designed to take the place of the RTV that was originally used to seal the lower oil pan. Using a gasket here is easier since you don't have to wait 24 hrs for the RTV to cure before refilling the engine with oil, or worry about using too much or too little RTV.
