I agree on the above post. Check drain plug too.

The last time you replaced the gasket, did you true up the pan gasket surface? In many cases the holes get puckered out and leave a less than flat surface for the gasket.

I don't recall if there is enough room to remove the oil pan. Might be done if the engine mount bolts are removed and the engine jacked up as high as possible.

*Caution - remove the fan and or shroud first!
