    OIL PAN leaking?!

    hi! my oil pan under the engine is leaking. i want to change the gasket. is there a gasket for the ASTRA G x16xel 1.6 16V engine?! Some say there is none so you just have to buy a silicon paste or silicon gasket for it.

    pls advise on how to go about it.

    cheers!

    I'm pretty sure there is a gasket, are you sure the leak is from the gasket seal?

    However why not try nipping the bolts up, evenly but please don't overtighten

    failing that , obviously drain the oil, take it off, and inspect it, clean the mating edges and spear some oil resistant gasket seal around,
    best to get a new gasket, theyre only cheap.
    but you could try clamping it back up, note even opposite tightening of bolts
    and it could be ok

    OH dont forget to refill with new oil, and whist your on might as well change the oil filter as well
