Guys : I use the same thing as Ken .  It's called Permatex #2 "Form A Gasket Sealant".  It is non-hardening and used on gaskets, flanges, pipe joints and threaded connections.  It resists gasoline, oil, grease and propane.
I use a thin coating on both sides of a gasket.  Just make sure that the mating surfaces are CLEAN.  I usually wipe the surfaces down with lacquer thinner.

... So the goopy material was coolant that was basically leaking and than heating up and turning into basically a Vaseline type material....

Looks like a confirmation of it being: Blue Devil Gasket Sealant, as mentioned above.
