So after replacing the oil pum gasket and re sealing the oilpan with rtv i still have a large oil leak that i cannot determine if it is coming from the pump gasket or oil pan. I used a gm gasket for the pump and ultra black rtv for the pan l. The leak is on the passenger side and dripping on to the exahst flex pipe. I do have an extra oil pump gasket and I have obtained an oil pan gasket from the only place in the world that seems to have them. Has anyone used this gasket on an 04 aveo?
Did you use rtv in the channels on the pan with the gasket?
The tsb says not to use rtv with the metal reinforced oil pump gasket. Any opinions?
