Thanks for the quick response. I read that you have to put Hondabond/ Permatex in certain spots on the pan and block. Is this correct? Or do I put it up dry? Will be working on a lift not the ground. Thanks Neil

Honda bond is the gasket. Get it with the oil pan.

My car is not an EX with an aluminum pan witch takes no gasket. It is an LX with a steel pan, it has a gasket. In the manual it shows points where the hondabond is used. My question was do I use the hondabond or put it up dry. Seen various articles so I just want to be sure witch is correct. Please check Roy. Neil

Ok, I understand. The pan does not come with a gasket, steel or aluminum. I always use just honda bond on either. You can do what you want. I dont believe the internet as I fix them all day long for over 40 years.

Sounds like you are full of yourself/cocky I guess you know better than Honda Glad you don't work on my car. BTW your answers are so generic anybody could have given me those answers. There are gaskets for certain applications. Do your homework! There is a large mount and converter cover needs to be removed also. You should have known this with 40 years experience. This was a waste of my time & money

Sorry but I am who I am. I have done many and cannot repeat each and every step. Honda does not use a gasket from the factory, just the honda bond as I told you. Believe me or not but that is the way it is. Sorry that you dont care for me but I am here and you are there at the car.
