i tried all those options; rubber gaskets, sealant, no sealant, cork, EPDM, even special ordered a viton. I used the cross bolt pattern recommended by Hayes and Mopar. Checked and double checked torque spec, even had my torque wrench calibrated. New pan, old pan, checked all surfaces on a flat slab table - all leaked. Cleaned all surfaces by hand using red scotch pad, no sandpapers, power tool, pnuematic tools, or even hand tools - minus the gasket scrapper - all leaked.
Kejobe - i almost picked up the ultra copper per O'reilly's salesman - it states do not use on rubber gaskets. See what I mean? Hence the question. I guess I am retarded
