Look, I don't want to be writing this as much as you don't want to be reading another one of these
Anyway, Just redid my LIM and at that time, of course I did new Dorman elbows. I even put RTV on them because I did not want them to leak. So last night I take a look and it looks like both are very slightly dripping. I don't think I put anything on th eO ring itself for lube and I only put the RTV on the outside portion behind the O-ring.
My question is, what is the standard accepted practice for installing these things now? A little vaseline on the o-ring and nothing else? A slight smear of RTV on the o-ring?
I was at the dealership picking up a EVAP hose today so I decided to get the OEM elbows this time.
