  • The engine oil will be drained.
  • The oil sump pan will be removed.
  • The surfaces of the components will be cleaned.
  • A new sump gasket will be fitted or in some cases, new sealant will be applied.

If there is only a very small, damp oil area around the gasket, it may just need tightening down. However, anything more than that requires the oil sump gasket to be replaced, and this should be done as soon as possible as it will only get worse.

How common is an oil sump gasket replacement?

As every car pretty much has one and it is subject to expansion and contraction as the engine goes from cold to hot and back again, one of the most common causes of engine oil leaks is the oil sump.

Can you drive with a leaking oil pan gasket?
