So my wife's focus dropped a valve seat, and eventually I put it back together. I had a massive oil leak though. I couldn't find the exact location of the leak, but logically, if I didn't have a peak before, then it must have been the oil pan gasket. I bought a new gasket, and this time put the pan back on WITHOUT RTV. It still leaked. I tried again with more RTV and it still leaked. Next I tried just RTV and lots of it...still leaked!!! I'm out of town for the holidays now and I suddenly had a few thoughts. If it leaks without the engine running, can it be the gasket or is all the oil below gasket level? If the oil is below gasket level, that would suggest a cracked oil pan. Is a cracked oil pan semi common on an '01 SOHC Focus? Are oil pans typically such a headache to install on this car?
