BMW Roundel Valve cover sealant

I understand that sealant should be put in the areas specified with a silver sealant which I'm assuming is the RTV. However, when I looked at the bonus pictures, there are some showing black sealant smoothed out on the valve cover. Is that the same sealant? Should sealant be put under the gasket and on the valve cover or just the valve cover?
Also, there is a photo (figure 22) showing a black tube removed from the right of the engine. What is it and is it necessary to remove it to remove the valve cover?
Thanks

Can you post a DIY Valve cover gasket for the 4 bangers? We change gaskets too!!

I just did this job, not bad but I used some rtv-silicon gasket kinda stuff instead of a gasket glue. It's gonna leak like a sieve isn't it?

Porsche 944 Turbo Project: Oil Pan Gasket Replacement

So I got a question. My mechanic has not removed the intake manifold for the oil pan gasket replacement. Either he has not gotten that far yet or he doesn't feel the need to remove it. Or doesn't know to. I'm kinda helping with the work for a learning experience for me. I'm gonna ask him tomorrow but, why is the reason for the intake manifold to come off?? I was looking under the car today, and don't know why it needs to come off. Every where I read it says to remove it, and I'm not saying you don't have to cause I'm sure ya do. But I'm wondering what is in the way?? Why can't it be done without removing it?

You're asking for a Porsche 944 Turbo. This is the BMW 3-Series section of the forum. Try posting a new topic here: Porsche 944 Turbo and Turbo S - Pelican Parts Technical BBS

Question regarding a 2001 VW Jetta non turbo 2.0.

Just bought yesterday for my son. Get in the drive with it and brown sticky crap leaking. Open up and pull dipstick to find there is NO oil on it..bone dry. Then look at the overflow and find out that all the oil is in the coolant and going everywhere. Could this be just an oil cooler or is it a headgasket? Im livid about it. If anyone can please offer me some advice I will take it. Whatever I can get. The car is a manual tranny and it drives and runs great actually.
