SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

SOURCE: Valve cover and Oil pan bolt torque

Inside to outside for torque pattern, 7 foot lbs. or 144 inch lbs.

SOURCE: After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,

Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces using silicone gasket remover, a plastic scraping tool and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging.
    NOTE
    If the oil pan is not secured within 4 minutes, the sealant must be removed and the sealing areas cleaned. To clean the sealing area, use silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging. Failure to follow this procedure can cause future oil leakage.
  2. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan sealing areas shown and install the oil pan rear seal.
  3. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the rear main bearing cap.
  4. Install the oil pan rear seal.
  5. Apply a bead of silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan mating surface.

Leaking oil pan gasket


Check the pan to make sure it is not cracked or warped. Also notice where most of the leak is coming from. When you took off the old gasket, did you scrape off all of the old material? If you used a screwdriver to do that, you may have nicked the metal and created a path for oil to leak. If you didn't scrape off the old material and any RTV sealant, you will want to, using a plastic scraper. There are sprays that dissolve this material too if it is too hard to scrape off.

If that area is nicked badly and you haven't used RTV sealant, you may want to put a small amount all over the area that the gasket will cover, not just the nicked area but the whole area that the pan gasket will cover- it doesn't take much and if you smear too much on, it will just ooze out and make things messy - just a fine coating will do.

As you tighten up the bolts, make sure you tighten in an alternating pattern as they begin to contact the gasket and get tight so a bolt on one side get fastened down as often as one on the other side gets fastened to avoid warping the pan.

Hope this helps.
