Replacing oil pan gaskets



Any hints on replacing gaskets without pulling the engine out of the car
I sure don't want to go thru that again but I have a bad leak and have to stop it. I pulled the oil pan off and found the rear gasket was not installed right ( It was in crooked and oil was pouring out at the area where it was not
in the right location. I have new gasket kit and want to get it right and without a lot of hassle. The oil pan is off so that,s a start.Next step will be removing the old gasket off the block. What kind of glue do I have to use to stick the gaskets to the block? Or do I need to stick them to the oil pan?
I see holes in the front and rear to wire the end gaskets in . Do I glue them as well??
As you can see I am kind of an amateur at this. Need all the advice I can get.

Thanks for any help .

Re: Replacing oil pan gaskets

Thanks Mike --I got the gaskets. Just having trouble getting them on and keeping them straight when I put the pan back on --seems like the end pieces always slip and then it leaks - Tried three times now. Getting to be a quick job since I have done it so often . Maybe this time it will go on right.

Re: Replacing oil pan gaskets

I use 3M trim adhesive. (Yellow) squeeze a bead and let it tack up. Put the gasket on and repeat the process for the top of the gasket.
You will call me bad names if you ever pull the pan again but it won't leak!
