Q: Why doesn't my 2005 Ford Mustang have a valve cover gasket? When I went to replace it there was none on the pan?

Hey there. There is no known Ford Mustang engine I know of that does not have a gasket for the valve cover. Some engines will use a bead of silicone all the way around. You will need to clean out the groove on the valve cover and install with a new gasket. So depending on the engine you have in your Mustang, you will need to install a gasket or rubber seal when installing the valve cover.
