Hi, Does anyone have a solution for leaks from the oil sump gaskets? I replaced both the thick and thin paper gaskets and retorqued but it still leaks. Should I be using some kind of sealer or make a permatex gasket? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Bob

You will have to use sealant. Stay away from silicone based ones.

Are you sure its the gaskets leaking?

I thought my upper pan was leaking, until I found that my front crankshaft seal and distributor were leaking oil, dripping down on the gasket and making its way back.

I would have bet it was the gasket, but it wasn't.

Just in case.
