Do not ask what compelled me to “just change” the oil pan gasket this morning, It’s only 22 bolts, how hard can that be?
I have read all the horror stories about seized gaskets, etc. But just had to do it.
Regardless I have it off and cleaned, but thought I would ask. While it is off anything else I should check?
Pan bottom was free of filings or chunks, oil pump pick up looks good, and visually no broken or scored parts.
When I parked it last night it was running fine I only pulled the pan to stop the freaking drips.
