Any comeback is bad, but having to remove an oil pan needlessly will really ruin your day. Magnum's world-class rubber molding facility, here in the USA, has made us a leader in manufacturing sophisticated gasket designs. In fact it's very likely that you have already installed molded oil pan gaskets made in our facilities but sold under other aftermarket brands. You can count on Magnum MaxDry™ Molded Rubber and Magnum MaxDry SS™ Rubber-on-Carrier gaskets to seal the toughest applications and prevent those "drops on the driveway" comebacks.


Magnum's Oil Pan Gasket Sets cover more than 80% of category sales. We offer gaskets for the most popular vehicles in America, including models from 1957 through 2009 and up. Chevrolet, Buick, Ford, Chrysler, GMC, Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Isuzu and more… we cover them all.


Magnum gaskets feature the best designs for aftermarket engine repairs, which may be different than OEM installations. Some changes from OEM are to accommodate the surfaces of used engine components, while other differences address working conditions in the field compared to the factory. A good example is the GM 3.8L V6 oil pan gasket used in model years 1995 to 2005. It faces an especially difficult sealing task because of variability in the gap between the oil pan and engine block on used pans. OEM and Magnum both supply an oil pan gasket/ windage tray combination with molded silicone sealing beads on a nylon-filled composite carrier. Magnum's OS21000 MaxDry SS gasket has a taller bead than OEM to compensate for greater gap variations. But the solution is not as simple as just making the bead taller. The "Void Volume" design (below) must accept the greater silicone bead volume when clamped. Magnum's gasket experts precisely calculate the ideal bead dimensions and design them into the mold.

"DO's & DON'Ts" of Oil Pan GASKETS

I've never had a customer who is happy to see the labor charge for replacing an oil pan gasket. The job is usually a "pain in the neck" (sometimes literally a pain in the neck) and professional technicians need to be paid appropriately for their time and effort. But I don't have to tell you that a labor-intensive job, like changing an oil pan, is the last thing you want to have come back for a do-over. That's why you need a high quality brand of oil pan gaskets designed by experts… Magnum Oil Pan Gaskets!
