I am rather new to engine work and have a very basic question regarding gaskets. I have removed the carb and exhaust manifold from my A4 and now need to reinstall them. I have some new gaskets that I will use, but the question is how are the gaskets treated before the installation? Do I coat them with oil and just bolt them in place or is there a special gasket sealing product that I will need to shell out more $$ for?
