Has anyone tried just the sealer in lieu of a new gasket. I have two cars leaking and am thinking about this. The Ford Focus (Zetec engine) has no gasket and the pan is completely filled with oil. So it obviously works. The question I would have is do the bolts bottom out in the holes if you don't have the thickness of the gasket present. By chance did anyone check this when they were changing gaskets?
