Re: Replacing an Oilpan Gasket

A word of caution should be noted:

"Do not over-torque the three rear bolts......These three bolts attach into the rear seal housing which is made of aluminum and can be stripped out very easily."

Those who fail to learn from mistakes are doom to repeat them.

Make sure both surfaces are clean and dry before applying the cork gasket and no sealant is required.
