Oil pan gasket leaking ...
My oil pan gasket is sweating/leaking a bit. My pan is custom made (the stock pan hangs down too low for my offroad application) but no modifications to the way it should be mounted as far as I know. Looks like you have to use liquid gasket maker to form this seal. Anyone ever had a gasket made from a sheet of material? What material would be used for oil? Several of my trucks gaskets were liquid based and aftermarket covers/pans I have switched too use the sheets of materials and they seem to be less leaky. I think I could cut the material to match my pan fairly easily. Or, since have never had my oil pan off, is the mating surface abnormal/noit flat and perhaps this is not a good idea?
If I decide to do the liquid seal again what type is best for the oil pan?
