Beginning 11/29/94, all 5.0L engines are being produced using a rigid carrier-type oil pan gasket. The rigid oil pan gasket design and revised sealing procedure are being introduced to reduce the possibility of mispositioning the cork-type gaskets during assembly which could result in leaks and repeat repairs. The revised sealing procedure is applicable to all 1990-95 5.0L oil pan gasket designs.
Apply Silicone Sealant to the oil pan gasket and block as indicated in Figure 1 when service is required. Refer to the appropriate Service Manual for removal and installation procedures.
SEALANT MUST BE APPLIED TO BOTH SIDES OF THE OIL PAN GASKET AS SHOWN IN FIGURE 1. FAILURE TO APPLY SEALANT AS INDICATED TO BOTH SIDES OF THE OIL PAN GASKET MAY CAUSE OIL LEAKS.
