An oil pan is more prone to leaking compared to any other car parts. It is because it holds oil which is being thrown around and that oil will find a leak if there is one. So, for this reason, extra care should be applied when you are to install an oil pan. There are times where you can find that the metal at the bolt holes in the oil pan and front cover is being pushed inward around the bolt holes. This thing happens because, in an attempt to stop oil leaks, the bolts that hold them are over tightened which causes the gaskets to get smashed and the oil leak will just get worst. So, watch the gasket as you tighten the bolts, see to it that it is not being squeezed out from under the oil pan to prevent oil leaks.
