Hi I have the oil pan gasket. It's like a hard plastic one with what looks like some kind of "tabs"? Will I need to use gasket sealant? If so, 8s there a certain way I apply it? Like on gasket itself? Or on oil pan then place gasket on it?

Hi,

Yes you are going to need to use a silicone sealant for oil pans. Then refer to the installation portion of the attachments that I provide previously to see where to place this sealant. You are going to put it directly onto the engine in these for locations. This is just basically giving the gasket a little reinforcement because these areas are the weakest and you want to make sure it doesn't leak from them. After you put the silicone on, you put the gasket on it and then the pan goes on. Just make sure you get it all on before the silicone begins to set up or it will have to be removed and you start over, as it states in the attachments.
