Default Oil Pan Gasket Replacement?

2001 2.4L Automatic.
Have just discovered an engine oil leak at the oil pan rear mating surface so need to replace the pan gasket.
Have searched around the net but curiously find nothing, which makes me wonder whether anyone has replaced this gasket.
Any comments or ideas would be appreciated.

Check O'Reilly and AutoZone.
Appears that the 01-02 gasket is different than later years.

Just happens that I have ordered from, RockAuto, the oil pan gasket, oil filter adapter gasket, oil pump tube O ring, and installation tool by Fel-Pro, 6mm. Good prices for all items except the installation tool could have saved about $7 at Amazon due to the extra shipping by RockAuto because the item ships from a different warehouse.

Have you or anyone heard of someone replacing this oil pan gasket?
I can't find anything related to this gasket replacement, anywhere, so
A neighbor who says he is a mechanic looked and believes it is the pan gasket.
I am not 100% confident about the source of the leak.

I bought a gasket a few years ago from RockAuto, my leak ended up being the cam gasket...so I never used it.
I did look into it though, it's not an easy job.
Good Luck

The engine oil leak has stopped leaking, incredible but true.
It has been 7 days and 13 trips, local and highway, and not a drop.
On the theory that internal engine overpressure pushed out the crankshaft oil seal momentarily, have replaced the PCV valve and verified that the PCV rubber tube was clean. The original valve rattled freely when shaken, so who knows?

Assuming you still have oil left in the engine....

Excellent question, and fortunately for me, it is at the top mark of the dipstick, as expected after refilling with the oil originally lost.
