SOURCE: 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.
