Your cell phone is also a tape recorder?

Anyway ... I must have misunderstood your question because the whole point is that there are two very different ways of replacing an I6 oil pan gasket. I just wanted you to be aware of both methods.

As for the recommended sealant, post #13 of the referenced thread clearly asks "what gasket sealer" the op used - and the OP responded in post #14.

Cn90 concurred in post #16. In post #17, a user asked about a different sealer. And post #18 goes further into getting a good bead around corners. Post #19 covers all the sealers suggested to date. And post #20 discusses cn90's favorite sealer.

I didn't go any further - but if you're asking what sealer to use, that thread has it all.

But maybe I misunderstood your question - so I'll let someone else answer it as that's the best I can do for you.

Good luck!
