Oil Pan Gasket (Yeah, you know the one I'm talking about...)

941 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Overkill
The little rubber peice that goes in right against the tranny inspection cover. For the second time in my ownership of this truck I've replaced the oil pan gasket, and both times it has leaked from right up there afterwards. What is the deal? Is there a trick I don't know about, or is it hopeless? I know you guys must have had this problem, so how do you avoid it?

Try loosening the bolts on the pan so that it is hanging and there is space between the pan and your block but it is not detached all the way. You can drain the pan first. Get some RTV blue silicone sealant and spread some where it is leaking with a butter knife or whatever thin spreader you can think of. Don't be cheap with the silicone rubber, you can trim off the excess later. Tighten bolts to spec.
