Default Oil Pan Questions

First, I have this black plastic or rubber ring about the size of a quarter I found in the oil pan. I guess it fell off of something, just not sure where. I guess it could either go one of two places; on the oil pickup in between the flange and the motor where it fits perfectly, or somewhere around that dipstick pipe. My money is on the pickup.

Also, I had to remove my oil pan again ( ) because it was leaking from the back over the crossmember. Anyone have any recommendations for preparing the oil pan before reinstalling? I thought I did a good enough job the first time getting the old gasket off but I guess you really need to remove EVERY mm of that stuff.

I'm using High Temp Red RTV 650. Is this good enough for the job? Any advice would be greatly appreshicated.

that RTV is what I used on my WRX pan. Just get every last speck of gasket off there use a rasor blade if you have to sometimes a gasket scraper isn't enough. Wipe it down with brake parts cleaner a couple times and you should be good.

I am not sure about the rubber ring tho... not sure the brakeout drawings would show it either.

you need to get Hondabond or Subaru 3 bond, RTV suck arse in the world of engine sealants, also pull your flywheel off and make sure it's nott he oil/vapor seperator that's not leaking.

It's definitely my oil pan. I just took it off and reinstalled it a week ago and did a pretty half-assed job because I was tired and frustrated. I didn't clean the gasket off the motor and left some on the pan.... so yeah I pretty much deserve this.

Of course if by some chance it is the separater behind the flywheel, you can pretty much bet I'm taking it to a dealer because I just did my clutch and I've decided I'm done with tranny work for now.

Also, I like how casually you say just pull my flywheel to make sure the separator is ok. You must have an awesome garage.

My first attempt worked okay. Of course, I only had it on for a week, but no leaks. I used an aluminum 1/2" NPT to 1/2" pipe fitting and some RTV all held on with JB weld.

If I notice any leaks, I'm just gonna break down and by a WRX oil pan and have a 45 degree 1/2" pipe welded into it. Right now I just need my car to drive.
