So, I have an ongoing leak from my sensor. Ive replaced the gasket before but it still leaks,,,,even after cleaning the surface prior to installing the new gasket. Would you all recommend rtv or some kind of sealant in addition to the gasket?

There was a thread on here not to long ago about this same issue. I seem to remember @Mustang5L5 , I think, saying it has something to do with an internal part of the sensor failing and allowing oil to leak. Not sure if this is the issue you are having. If I find the thread I'll put a link in this thread.
