Q: Q: Oil Pan Leak

asked by on

Hello,

I have a slow drip coming from my oil pan. I am looking to use a sealant product to help either rejuvenate the current gasket, or seal the leak coming from the pan. Do you have any suggestions as to what kind of sealants I can use? I'm hoping that I wont have to remove the pan, rather just apply the sealant to the current cover.

Thanks!
