    Amazing ... Welcome to the forum-first post. You resurrected a thread that is two-years old. What is amazing is that jmags40 was here, read the question and responded.

    No, I just did a oil change & everything is still great! I do know that they had to wait for a 2 part sealant to come in. They said it was better than just regular RTV gasket sealer. Maybe, they didn't use the good stuff on yours? Good luck!

    could be that stuff ......2-Part Adhesives & Sealants | 2-Part Silicone
    one problem , which one ?? they have 37 different recipes under the ss-XXXX series
    and a TS-33D
    jmags40 , any chance the dealer listed the product on your paper work ??
    ..
    trying to narrow it down using only the kind marked " gasket " or " gasket fabrication " , still leaves 7 different products.

    Sorry for the delay. I keep the paperwork in the truck. The part number for the adhesive is: 68082860AB. I'm not sure which type it is. They told me it would take a extra.day to get the GOOD stuff though.

    I had what look like a weep... but when i wiped it off with my finger it was just fine rubber particles from the belt i believe. Looks a lot like oil actually.

    My Dodge mechanic buddy told me about that stuff, it won't leak and the parts may not come apart unscathed if they need to be disassembled.
