If I remember correctly you need to use the gray sealant. You don't need to raise the engine but it does help if you remove the exhaust downpipe. The front crossmember is a tight fit, but it can be done.

Use any liquid gasket suitable for use with engine oil.

The oil pan can be removed and installed WITH the crossmember and tranny. in place. It just takes a 1/4" drive swivel adapter on your socket to reach the two nuts that are partially covered by the tranny casing.

Wes is right, just make sure the sealant is oil resistant and high temp.

The best stuff on the market is the "Right Stuff for Imports". It is made by Permatex, comes in a grey can that looks like a can of Cheeze Whiz. It works great and makes applying a nice continuous beasd very easy.

My oil pan gasket is leaking as well and I plan on replacing it soon. What do I need to get to do this? Just the gasket and some sealant as mentioned in this thread?

I assume the procdeure is drain the oil, remove the oil pan(possibly the downpipe as well), get rid of the old gasket, then put on the new gasket and sealant.
Is this correct?

As stated from the FSM.
Removal
1. Remove engine RH side cover and undercovers
2. Drain engine oil
3. Remove front exhaust tube
4. Set a suitable transmission jack under transaxle and lift engine w/ engine slinger (i did it w/o doing this, except that i supported the tranny w/ a regular jack and a piece of wood)
5. Remove center member
6. Remove front and rear engine gussets
7. Remove rear plate cover (A/T models)
8. Remove oil pan
a. Insert tool between cylinder block and oil pan
*Be careful not to damage aluminum mating face. Do not insert screwdriver, or oil pan flange will be damaged
b. Slide tool by tapping on the side of the tool with a hammer
Installation
1. Use a scraper to remove oil liquid gasket from mating face of oil pan, also remove oil liquid gasket from mating surface of cylinder block
2. Apply a continuous bead of liquid gasket to mating surface of oil pan *allow 7mm (.28 in) clearance around bolt holes
3. Be sure liquid gasket diameter is 3.5 - 4.5 mm *attaching should be done within 5 minutes after coating
4. Install oil pan (there is a certain bolt pattern for reinstalling the bolts, ill try to take a pic of it soon)
5. Install parts in reverse order of removal

Hope this helps

Couple of questions though

Are 4 and 5 needed? Do you need to remove the center member to do this?
As for 6 what the hell is a gusset?
And finally is there only a liquid gasket needed?

Yes you need to remove the center member. There should be two gussets that attach the oil pan to the block. Gussets are just two cast iron or metal brackets. You will see them when you get under the car. And yes, there is only a liquid gasket needed. The hard part of putting it back in it getting it lined up correctly w/o smudging the liquid gasket.
