How many of you have actually replaced the timing cover gasket when you replace the timing belt? Is it really critical that this gasket be replaced? I am asking because my gasket was brittle and it fell apart when I pulled the timing cover off.
Unfortunately, I don't have all of the pieces. I really need to get the car back on the road this week and I am wondering if it is safe to drive without the gasket fitted to the timing cover. Thanks for the reply man.
