Default oil pan leak

So my pans leaking on the front side closest to radiator area.

Went to local garage for a quote and with oil change and resealing it is 175 to 200. They looked up for the rtv and got a listing for a felpro oil pan gasket that fits 2.0l. Is this accurate or does it need the rtv, since I always assumed and was aware that there is no gasket for 2003.

My hunches usually are! So is it safe to say the gasket "COULD" work, or should I push for the fujibond. Because I'm capable to do the work, but out of work with a back injury. So id rather spend the money and save my back from further aggrevation and save my turbo furthermore and motor from severe damage.

Try the felpro gasket, it sounds like an easier cleaner way to seal the pan without squishing rtv towards the inside of the pan.

No on the Felpro!! It will leak if you don't use liquid gasket on it anyway.

Use any decent liquid adheasive gasket and be done. As long as the install is done correctly (clean surface, proper set time, etc.) it will last a good long time.

Yeah I know all that.. I just can't be bothered with it, given everything else going on so I'm just gonna put it in the shop. But I'm just confused more than anything as to why an actual gasket came up when they searched with a part number and picture that matched the shape of the pan where the gasket would go, but everytime I've checked its been a "special order" or unlisted part, knowing it requires the sealant to begin with. But I questioned it and he said, its cuz they are a shop and have more connections or whatever.

But at 200 to reseal (with gasket) + oil change with 5w40 full synthetic + labor. I want it done right the first time. The dealership I got the car from said 240 if I use full synthetic and with rtv, so ill pay the 40 extra for a job that I know will be done right.

But its more so the fact that the 200 is convient in terms of location, but will it be done right is what worries me.

If they use a 'gasket' it will not be done right.

Most new cars use liquid adheasive gasket because it makes a better more reliable seal. Subaru engines use a split block. Adheasive is much better at conforming to irregularities in the bloc,k and the thin crappy oil pan flange bowing between the bolts.
