Fel-Pro has new oil pan gasket for Hyundai, Kia engines

Order Reprints

Fel-Pro, a division of Federal-Mogul Corp., has introduced a one-piece gasket for 2009-12 Hyundai and Kia V-6 engines originally sealed with RTV silicone beads.

The company says the gasket is the first to address repair issues specific to the 2009-12 model engines and provides a reliable seal when re-installing the oil pans. The gasket design is available in complete oil pan and conversion sets.

According to Fel-Pro, approximately 250,000 3.3L and 3.8L DOHC V6 engines from Hyundai and Kia feature an RTV silicone bead, rather than a conventional gasket, along the oil pan flange surface. Applying a replacement bead and properly installing the oil pan for a leak-free seal can be exceptionally difficult in the aftermarket repair environment.

The new one-piece oil pan gasket is manufactured from a die-cut high-density fiber sheet that is fully encapsulated in a black latex rubber coating. The latex coating prevents engine oil from wicking through the gasket body to provide a long-lasting, leak-free seal.

The product is available for the following applications:

* 2009-2012 Hyundai and Kia V6 3.3L and 3.8L DOHC (Azera, Entourage, Santa Fe, Sonata, Veracruz, Sorento) Fel-Pro oil pan set #OS30822; conversion set #CS26414; and

* 2009-2012 Hyundai V6 3.8L DOHC (Genesis, Borrego) Fel-Pro oil pan set #OS30823; conversion set #CS264201.
