Oil Pan Leak


Recommended Posts

Is there a gasket on the 2nd gen GS? the dealership told me that they use a Form in place gasket also known as silicone.

Can this be true? I use silicone to seal my oil pan? I also noticed that people were asking about the upper and lower oil pans...how can I tell which one is leaking and where do i go from there?

Im not 100% sure but its very possible they use silicone as a gasket. Many components are sealed with silicone. If used correctly it does a great job. Its not uncommon to use silicone or some type of liquid gasket to seal differentials, timing covers, transmissions, and transfer cases. You could try www.rockauto.com to see if they carry a gasket for the trans pan.
