I have an exhaust leak where the pipe from the exhaust manifold screws into the EGR valve. I just had it off to do the head gaskets and no matter how tight I make it, exhaust is leaking out thru the threads. Is there supposed to be a gasket or something inside the EGR valve? What does everyone use on the threads, if anything?

There isn't a gasket that goes there, the threads usually seal up just fine. Are you certain you didn't crossthread or strip the threads?

Yeah, I'm positive I didn't. I unscrewed it today and and screwed it back on just to be sure and it was nice and straight. I put some antisieze on it today too. I can put my hand back there and feel it coming out between the threads and the housing. I can wrap a rag around the area and quiet down the noise.
