BUMP. Do I need to buy this for when I drop the lower oil pan? Or do I just buy the FIPG stuff? Thanks guys.

just the FIPG. dealer doesn't make a gasket & they recommend the FIPG only.

What can I substitute FIPG with? Anything at autozone I can get thats really good? I dont mind spending an extra buck at autozone if it saves me money compared to a Toyota/Lexus dealer. Thanks again guys.

Found this on ebay..

Looks like a good deal I think. Anyone agree?

some guys say you can get some good stuff at autozone, but i recommend just getting it from toyota or lexus. i got mine from lexus & it was only $14. worth the piece of mind to me.

How to you remove the back 6 bolts of the oil pan? I don't think lifting the engine is a DIY option for me?

So no one has figured out how to remove the back 6 bolts of the oil pan without lifting the motor? I could easily do this DIY if I has instructions on how to remove the back 6 bolts. Anyone?

Just recently cracked my lower oil pan too was wondering the same thing. Is there any way to get those bolts out of there without pulling the motor? I tried a flexible ratchet with a swivel but still no luck.

Anyone that has replaced their oil pan gasket (not transmission pan) please chime in. I developed a leak that appears to be coming from my oil pan gaskets. Valve cover gaskets are new no leaks, cam seal and crank seal are all new, vvti pulley is brand new also so I know these parts listed aren't leaking. Is it best to raise the engine or remove the cross member?

The car is a 99 GS300 232K miles.

Any help is appreciated.
