Hey guys, I have a oil leak around my oil pan and was worried it was something serious but its just my oil drain gasket. I'm going to change my oil tomorrow morning and bought these http://www.dormanproducts.com/p-22452-65280.aspx
has anyone used these or is something else better?

thats all they are.

I have an oil leak on my swap because I forgot to put one on. It's very, very, very minor. I'll put one on when I change the oil.

Yeah they're pretty cheap there. I bought a 10pack from CSK when I had my '87.

I'm feeling like just going to the dealer to buy a OEM one...... well since I already bought it ill try it. I knew I should have just waited :(

Amazing how many oil pans have to be retapped/repaired from not using that tiny little sub-$1 part.
