    hey guys,

    my pan is leaking, its a new pan. TF904

    1974 PLYMOUTH DUSTER 5.2L 318cid V8 Filter | RockAuto

    the funny thing is im from the netherlands, and a guy a town over has an American transmission shop.. he asks 31 dollars for a simple looking cork gasket and a basic filter.

    on Rockauto i get more choice in material/quality + its half the cost of what he is asking.. all the way from the USA..

    but anyway, wich one should i take? the price is pretty much all the same, and so are the looks of the product.

    What will Rock Auto charge to ship the gasket and filter to the Netherlands? I know sending anything to my son who live near Schiphol airport is expensive by the USPS and more so by UPS and FedEx.

    Have you checked your pan to make sure it's straight, especially at all the mounting holes. That may all that's needed to stop the leak(s).

    Use part number 4295875AC from Mopar! Rock auto sells for $15.39 plus shipping. Maybe you can get over there? They work the best. It is hard plastic/steel lined with rubber.

    R u sure it's not the dipstick 0 ring or the manual shaft seal that isn't leaking and not the pan gasket? Kim

    X-nay on the cork hey.
    If the cork has not shrunk beyond useable;
    And has not been folded over on itself
    Or broken in 7 pieces during shipping,then
    Cork works......for a while. Then it loses it's torque, and seeps. So you see the oil on the floor and tighten the screws. and then the

    One day the cork cracks so you put in a new gasket, and then, the

    Eventually you give up on cork, but now it takes three hours to get the glue off.And you learn to never use glue here again.

    Impregnated cork is better.
    Rubberized paper is better.
    Rubber with torque-limiters is best. It's been a one-time deal for me.


    A $5 gasket is $50 worth of headaches. About that overseas gasket;You never know if;
    If the cork has not shrunk beyond useable;
    And has not been folded over on itself
    Or broken in 7 pieces during shipping.

    An expensive gasket in hand is better than a cheap unknown from a far-off land. Don't begrudge your local guy a couple of bucks, it might come back to bite you in a time of need.
