Our Oil Pan Gasket is an OEM replacement, so it's an exact fit with ultimate sealing properties. Fits M42/M44 engines from 10/95 production date.
Your original oil pan gasket can crack and come apart from age and heat allowing the engine oil to seep through and leak. Tightening the oil pan bolts to decrease the leaking will only cause more harm to the gasket and can potentially damage the small, lightly-torqued bolts. We suggest replacing the oil pan gasket to prevent an increasing mess and to stop any potential of running the engine with low oil levels.
