It was leaking around the pan, so I pulled the pan, changed the filter and resealed w/RTV sealant and reassembled. It is now leaking again. I'm sure I cleaned up the surfaces and sealed properly. Is it possible this leak comes from somewhere else?

    maybe it is leaking from somewhere else if it isn't leaking from the pan anymore

    I read something from one mechanic about letting the RTV sealant "skim over" before you mate the two surfaces. I didn't do that. Is that important?

    if it came with a gasket I would put a new one on if it just has sealer on it then I would check for other sources for the leak.it could be a side cover leaking
