5R110W Pan Gasket: Is there a trick to it?

I'll be upgrading to the bigger style filter and pan here just as soon as it arrives, but I went through a bit of issues with attempting first a snugging the original pan, then a cheap rubber only gasket, then finally silicone +original reusable gasket recently, and wanted to make sure I'm not missing something (clearly before I had).

My understanding of the procedure is

1. Pull the old pan/filter
2. Let it drip dry for a couple of hours
3. Clean the mating surface
4. Place new filter/pan
5. Torque to 11 ft. pounds
6. Refill with Mercon SP (circa 16 qts.)

I did recheck the flange with a straight edge prior to the mistake with the cheap rubber seal. On trying the second time with the RTV and the original reusable gasket tried to hammer the pan flange straight as best I could to see if I could get a seal -- I know this was horribly misguided, but I was desperate to get my truck moving and I thought it was worth a try.

The leak doesn't appear to be coming from anywhere else, just the pan seal. Didn't leak until I got 10 quarts in on attempting with silicone. Could my original attempt to snug it up have just been due to the seal mating surface contamination from the originally existing leak?

I'd add to your procedure:


1. Pull the old pan/filter
2. Let it drip dry for a couple of hours
3. Clean the mating surface
4. Place new filter/pan
5. Hand/lightly wrench tighten fasteners in evenly alternating roundrobin pattern - corners first
6. Torque to 11 ft. pounds in evenly alternating roundrobin pattern
7. Refill with Mercon SP (circa 16 qts.)

I realize that it is somewhat obvious. ...but it might just be to us and not someone else rolling along in the future.

The oem reusable gasket should by design prevent pan distortion at the bolt holes
I would just make sure you have a new $$ OEM gasket
and the dripping for a few hours is not needed because the gasket can have fluid on it unlike a gasket sealer surface

It might be worth while to replace the dummy plugs while you've got it open.

There is no need for rtv if installed correctly. Always tighten the pan bolts from the center out.

16qts??? It might just be me, but that seems a little excessive...

A few sources day the capacity is 16 quarts. I am trying to go off the dipstick though, just a quart at a time. I did Blow out the cooler too, but I don't think that's anywhere near the 7+ quarts difference.
