I do have a 1995 Corvette C4 with a differential leak. Should I use a gasket? Or just a gasket sealant?

Thanks

Rory

WHERE is it leaking? Several places it could leak, but the only place it would need a gasket or sealant is between the differential housing and the mount(batwing). That particular junction would use a sealant, no gasket. A good quality silicone would work, as would 3M Aviation Sealant, which is my preference.

I would use the rtv sealant and torque the cover evenly
