oil filler gasket options

Hello All,

Instead of going to the welcome thread I am coming straight here. I know quite a bit about the 4.0 and cherokees but now have a 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited with the 4.7 N.

I'm just got this Grand. For a Grand. And the body and interior is near showroom. 9 out of 10.

The mechanicals at 238,000 miles not so much. Engine runs like a raped ape but every orifice leaks. I just got the valve cover gasket passenger side done. Water pump done. Don't have the cash for getting into the timing chain yet. Sludge is pooling on the top, front, drivers side head gasket area directly under the alternator. Don't know about that one.

Right now I'm wondering about the oil filler gasket. Mine is flush with the body of the filler currently and wondering can I use rtv until the gasket comes in from the dealer? Or would rtv work in general?

Thanks all.
