    Hey guys, new here, have been searching, but not finding any advice on sealing up a leaky return where my Vortech drains into the oil pan. I was contemplating pulling the oil pan this winter, but with the weather we are having and an unheated garage, I am looking for a shortcut.

    Black RTV is your new best friend.

    How bad is the leak and where is it? If it's at the fitting try wrapping more Teflon tape around it

    Thanks guys. It leaks just enough to make cleaning the underside of the car not worth while. Drips on the garage floor after running. Wiring at 02 sensors is pretty wet. There is more than one leak, but this one in particular will be a bear if I have to drop the K-member. So I guess I clean it really well and hit it with black RTV until I want to take more dramatic approach.
