2013 Compass oil pan replacemebr
Hi. I was recently changing the oil and noticed that the oil pan was nearly rusted through. So I picked up a new pan and gasket at advance. When I pulled the old one off, l noticed there was no gasket... Only permatex. I installed the new pan with gasket but I noticed a blow out on the gasket before I could even torque it to spec. I also couldn't get the AC bracket to align without overtorquing it. I'm going o pull the new pan off and only use permatext like the original pan.
My question is why do they even sell a gasket if it's too thick to be used?
