oil leak

First make sure the pan rails are flat. Overtightening will cause the bolt holes to buckle upwards causing a bad seal. Felpro and Mr Gasket both sell one piece rubber gaskets. They have grommets so you can't overtighten it. I have used both and found the Felpro to be better. Do not use RTV on it or it will leak. They work great. I never use cork anymore.
