lol! It's not silicon sealer.. But good point..

It's gasket material none dry inside tube..

In other words same stuff but not compressed in o-RING STYLE.

I saw on DIY Bimmerforum .

even new disa ring sometimes don't fully close cap under engine working habits and high rpm.

no wonder BMW don't sell o-ring it self.

it worked for my same issue on cold start.. As if the car running on 4 cylinder. Almost like Limp

I did it to mine! also posted on your thread w pic. No issue like this ever sense I did the job to seal w high temp gasket sealer "orange color"

Advice: let it dry 24 hours!
