    Default Honda City Oil Pan/Chamber Gasket Replacement

    Salam PWers!
    Recently I have noticed that the original joint/seal/gasket of my 2003 Honda City's Oil Pan is leaking. So I'd be going for re-installation.

    I do not intend to get the work done from Honda's 3S morons as I have observed them to ignore protocols and lacking in skills, and not to mention that they over charge.

    Now my query is about the type and brand of liquid gasket which i should opt for if i do not find Honda's recommended one in the market?

    Also, what other parts are recommended to be replaced during the above mentioned repair job?

    Expert opinion, suggestions and help will be deeply appreciated.

    Regards.

    i once had to get my city's oil pan removed after i ruptured it in the middle of a desert sumwhere in lower punjab by hitting it on a brick at 120km/h at 10pm on a winter night

    well, as the gaskit wasnt damaged i used the same after getting the pan fixed. black colored sillicon was used to fit it back and to this day (3 yrs passed) its working fine.

    As for ur car, the best bet would be to get the gasket from Honda 2 or 3s... peace of mind means a lot! but i do believe that there wud be some good quality ones available in the market.btw, as informed by @coolsmart, 800rs isnt much n i'd say go for it. u dont need to get anything else, just check the oil pan drain nut washer, if its okay, no oil shud be seeping frm it. otherwise change it.rest, u dont need anything...

    I have checked it thoroughly, it is indeed the leaking gasket. I have the Workshop Manual of 2004-2008 Honda City/Fit, and according to it, the L12A2 engine's oil pan requires a liquid gasket and not a rubber one. The liquid gasket is white in color.

    threebond 1104 or similar, used to cost Rs 2000/- back about 4 years ago. - nothing else would work. You can also go and buy Rolls Royce Hylomar which is equally good to seal metal to metal joints.

    Whatever sealant you use be sure to clean both surfaces and ensure they are straight, threebond 1104 or even 1215 is good, I used it when I used to work in Pakistan. Makes for a clean job everytime.
