Question 09 Oil pan gasket - Help?

Tried to do my due diligence and search, but didn't find much of help.

Apparently while the wifey was getting an oil change (just moved, been busy, and garage is full of junk - don't hate!), the shop told her the oil pan gasket had a super small leak.

Ok.

The best info I could really find on a slightly older model (if I recall it was a 2006), and it was mixed info on whether or not I needed a lift and chain to hoist the engine from the top side.
If someone can comment on whether the 09 model requires it or not, that'd be great.

Admittedly, I haven't looked since my jack and stands are at my friend's, and he's out of town... Super great....

So far as I understand the process:
  1. Drain oil from system completely
  2. Lift engine?
  3. Unbolt system, expecting a ton of spilliage (unless you have some killer tips)
  4. Remove old gasket; if RTV, clean off w/o scraping pan lining
  5. Replace gasket; if RTV, apply a simple bead
  6. Reapply bolts, starting with the center bolts - I suppose to cleanly press the gasket in place

Is there any cross-member blocking anything? Any gotchas that would catch me mid work-session?

I plan on taking care of this on the next oil change, as it seems to be a very small leak, but need to know about the hoist. I feel pretty confident about the rest. I've changed a few RTV head gaskets before so this is just upside down.

If anyone can comment anything I might have missed, or have any tips, I'd really appreciate it!

Make sure you verify that it actually is leaking before changing the gasket. I do no trust those oil change places.

My 2009 has the same issue. I brought it into the dealer (under warranty) and they allegedly fixed it. When I was completing the last oil change, a few thousand miles after their "fix", I noticed it was still leaking. I'm wondering if the pan doesn't have a small hole in it or something else given I can see the RTV sealant all around the pan and it looks like a good seal.

The 4 cylinder dosent use a gasket just Rtv. From my car being lowered I clipped my oil pan on a raised manhole cover. I got home and noticed the leak, went bought and an oem oil pan and high strength Rtv. Mind you I've never changed the oil myself I jacked up the car, unbolted the oilpan by this point all the oil had leaked out already. Pryed off the old oil pan scrapped off the old Rtv stuck on the car still. Put a bead of Rtv around the oilpan placed it back on the car. Bolted it up and wala fixed my cracked oilpan. Before that I also had a small leak through the old Rtv, it's been over a year now since I did the work and still no leak whatso ever.

@Supernova88642

I totally forgot about the leak, and never got around to fixing it... 2 years later, I've still yet to see a drop of oil on the pavement where it's parked every single day....

Still, how's it standing up today? Where'd you get the oil pan (and do you remember how much?)

I'd imagine a literal hole in the pan would spew oil when the engine is under pressure... Should be obvious in that case, right?

If you don't see any oil drops on the pavement where parked, then you don't have an oil leak. Like someone responded....."don't trust those oil change centers." In my opinion, those places hire a bunch of dumb bozos, who don't know much, and can figure little out. Also, they are taught to look for real or imagined problems, so they can sell you extra "service."

That said, if your car ain't broke, then don't fix it.

Yeah I know, just getting some feedback.

I plan on getting under the car and cleaning it up some... I'm hoping it's just the fact that the oil filter is top loaded it somehow spills all over things, and slowly works it's way to the bottom of the oil pan.

Either way, the gasket is $30 for the v6, I have plenty of RTV, and if I knew the torque specs I could probably swap it out in less than half an hour.
