08 Accord with 175k leaking oil at base of front (passenger side) spool valve/vtec solenoid. There is no gasket between where the base rests on the engine. I used a bead of permatex ultra grey and reassembled with proper torque settings. I’ve done this twice now and It’s still leaking. Please help! Thanks.

If I4 use OEM part 15815-R40-A01 and nothing else. Don't go aftermarket and no permatex.

Thanks! Yeah, the gaskets between the top and bottom parts of the solenoid are fine. The leak is underneath the base where it rests on the engine (circled in blue).
