Really? RTV normally lasts through it all, I have taken my oil pan on 2 occasions and both times resealed with RTV without issue!johnand said:Nissan specifies RTV silicone gasket for the oil pan. But, you actually got a physical gasket? And it is rubber not cork. I knew Felpro made a cork gasket for our oil pan, but not rubber. How much was that gasket?
I resealed my oil pan about a year ago with Silicone RTV, and it leaks like hell now. I have been concidering getting a real gasket instead.
Depends how you look at it. Less messy for sure, however still have to clean it the same and because of how the oil pan sits getting the cork gasket to line up over all the holes in the oil pan might be a challenge. Never tried it as I always use RTV, but I can see it not being fun. Especially with the way the transmission side studs are...pksjay said:I thought a cork actual gasket would be esier than he silicone//
