Question about Ford ZX2
I would suspect that this is an Escort style pan in which RTV is the oil pan gasket. I have always applied a thin layer of RTV to the pan and the block of the engine, allow them to dry for 1/2 hour, then reapply a second thing layer to the oil pan and install. I have never had one leak after using this method. Make sure that the bolt holes stay open during this whole process.
