    On rock auto the oil pan gasket you can buy for my 1995 mtx is just the rubber end seals and some rtv. Has anybody done a full RTV gasket and had it work fine? I know you can generally rtv most seals instead of buying gaskets and it’ll work out, but I know some people have had negative experiences doing that with other cars, any input?

    No the original style oil pan seal is end gaskets and rtv. They always came that way.

    The gaskets are still available why risk it?

    I learned recently was that volvo uses anaerobic sealer on their oil pans and I actually resealed my volvo oil pan with it.

    Next time I drop the sho oil pan I will use the anaerobic sealer on it. We use it on our transmissions and it works great. I think it's better than rtv. There is then also no chance of it clogging oil passages or pickups.
