Default Replacing oil pan gasket

Hey everyone just a quick question the corner of our cruisers oil pan is starting to seep. When you guys replace it do you use a Gasket or rtv? I know a lot of newer cars use rtv from the factory for gaskets . What about the pt ? Thanks everyone.

Default Re: Replacing oil pan gasket

I use both. And don't worry about what it came with. Some of the factory gasket solutions on these engines are woefully inadequate.

My choice is a Felpro brand gasket. I use black Permatex RTV in the silver tube. I put a thin even layer on the pan and then apply the gasket. Then I wait long enough for the gasket to tack. Then I mount the pan. I use this procedure for just about all engine covers that need an oil seal. And I haven't had to redo one yet.
