I have the same issue. JB Weld, Water Weld, and 4 tubes of Gasket maker still dont fix it... You can do it on your own. I can do it on my own and I choose not to. I'll look for the video that explains it and I'll post it up

WARNING!

If you don't do this the right way you will be in a mess! The piece can fall in to the pan. It is aluminum and will be hard to get back out. Some have cut a hole in their pan to retrieve it and others will tell you that you must pull the engine. Be careful! I will look for a video I have seen that tells you how to replace the gasket.
