Re: Oil Pan

there is no oil pan gasket. They use RTV sealant only. I would recommend using either either Permatex Ultra Grey or "Black??". I can't remember the full name for the Black hopefully someone else will chime in.

Carefully clean all of the old sealant off. Make sure both surfaces are oil free, torque the bolts to the proper specs, let sit for 12 - 24 hrs fill with oil and ride away.

Re: Oil Pan

Black Permatex FORM-A-GASKET works very well....

Re: Oil Pan

Make sure its oxygen sensor safe RTV it should say it on the tube. Some RTV fumes can mess up the sensor.

Re: Oil Pan

In agreement with bigbear. The surfaces are machined quite well, so not much sealant is needed. I used a syringe for application, so my sealant bead was about toothpick diameter. I went in a criss-cross pattern, moving up in 10 in-lb increments when I torqued mine down. That was 6 months ago; no leaks. I think I used Perma-Tex Ultra Gray.
