That's correct, but that doesn't really keep anything from coming out of the engine. What it prevents is spilling oil underneath the engine cover (the cover that covers the valve cover lol).

What WDE said is correct. I replaced it cause I like replacing things. Only costs a few cents.

#13 isn't really gasket ring. It doesn't stop oil coming out from VC.
