oil leak

found a oil leak in the rivet next to the oil filter , the temporary fix I can do is place a clear hose on it with a very small oil catch can, inspected all around the gasket and that's the only place it leaks very little

Any solution would be helpful, place Jb weld over it or try drilling it out

I have heard of some people with stubborn LS pan leaks having to use silicone on the bolts. Obviously that's not what's going on here. Probably just need a new gasket, which of course is a major PITA.

When I replaced my gasket during the engine swap I needed to pop the OEM rivets out to remove the old gasket. From what I remember the aftermarket pan gaskets have no holes in that location, so a new gasket should seal her up.

I recently replaced the gasket with the AC Delco one and had to pop 2 rivets back in just like the old one , I didn't think of using a aftermarket one.

You beat me to it lol

If you do a variation of removing and bracketing the cross member you can drop the oil pan any time you want or need too.

Yeah the only thing is on my car I have to un bolt the rack n pinion and push it forward. But that's a lot easier than the alternative.

I bought mine from a member on here by the name of CFD. There just cnc flanges. All that you have to do is cut the crossmember out and weld the flanges back on to the crossmember piece you cut out and the stubs on the car. It did take a little time to find someone to do it though because a lot of people say it's a liability thing. My guy did it for $150 and now is my go to mechanic.
