The service manual for the Hyundai Accent advises that you apply sealant below and above the head gasket. Is this really necessary? I am wary of applying anything to the gasket.

I don鈥檛 about RTV that seems to be recommended in manual. But I鈥檝e used copper coat on head gaskets for years in all kinds of applications. Normally used the spray to coat both sides of head gaskets and liquid brush-on on many other kinds of gaskets, that stuff has been great I wouldn鈥檛 have done without it for many years.

I've read the instructions over and over, looked at the diagram and at the actual block and I'm still not sure exactly where to apply the sealant and what I'm sealing. Am I to apply the sealant at the left and right edges of the gasket in a vertical line?
