Oil Pan Gasket


What is oil pan gasket?

An oil pan gasket is a seal that is used to prevent oil leakage from the oil pan of an internal combustion engine. The oil pan stores the engine oil. It is bolted to the engine block and houses the oil pump, which circulates the oil throughout the engine. MEGA Gasket, a leading gasket manufacturer in Taiwan, offers high-quality oil pan gaskets that form a tight seal between the oil pan and the engine block.

Signs of Oil Pan Gasket Leak:

  • Oil Puddles:

If you notice oil puddles under your parked car, it could be a clear sign of an oil pan gasket leak.

  • Burning Smell:

A burning oil smell while driving may indicate that oil is leaking onto hot engine components.

  • Low Oil Levels:

Regularly check your oil levels; a sudden drop could be a result of a gasket leak.
