    S Series Coolant fitting

    I have a block that the fitting was removed on, do I need to put any sealer on the fitting before I screw it back into the block?

    I use oil resistant teflon tape each time.

    I vote yes to some sort of thread sealer

    Like the temp sensor?
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    I think saturn used some type of teflon stuff. Or it could have been the stuff they brush on the threads and let dry before install. Whatever is was I always remembered it being white-ish.

    I would just used a few laps of teflon tape and build it up kinda thick about 2-3 thread back on the fitting and then send it home.
