gasket maker safe to use on IAC housing?

Hey everyone I took my IAC housing off the throttle body of my 2004 jeep wrangler 4.0l to clean it. Well I used blue sensor safe rtv on It to seal it back up will this be OK to use for awhile? Thanks

I would say that as long as you didn't get carried away to where chunks of it can get stuck in the valve you should be OK.

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

Well if they made a gasket for the IAC housing I would I've looked everywhere so has other ppl on forums no luck. So yeah either make on or use rtv. The rtv holds really good makes a tight fit. I don't trust gasket paper or me making one.

I use cereal boxes. They make perfect gasket material.
