SOURCE: change oil pan gasket
This Is A Fairly SIMPLE Procedure The IMPORTANT Thing is To Use Generous Amount of Sealant and Allow Plenty of TIME for Sealant to CURE After Pan is On and Tightened Over Night At Liest

pan bolt torque is in inch pounds (not a lot, around 10-15) generally
it's not necessary for exact because pans are a bit warped many times
and exact dosen't work anyhow. Tighten snugly without leaning into the
wrench, then check running and tighten anywhere that is seeping.
if it's dry after a week of running it's fine.It's important not to crush the gasket. If you have one with a two piece dipstick tube sometimes if the vent is a bit blocked the fluid can get out at the connection between the two halves. I don't know if anything is available to join them together better but I use a piece of hose over them to keep water out off-road. Make sure the vent is clear. If it's leaking, the only way to find the leak is to look carefully at everything, clean off areas where there is too much gunk to see well. pretty much the only place at the front that there is a seal is in the pump and around the pump. it would leak down inside the bellhousing and drip out onto the front of the pan rail after being blown back while driving. Both seals are not accessible unless the unit is removed.

SOURCE: OIL PAN GASKET LEAK
The engine has to be supported and the cradle under the engine has to be removed. After everything is reinstalled the front end has to be realigned.
