Dear friends, my 155 2.0 16v 1996 leaks a little bit of oil from the oil pan where it touches the engine block. I supposed it was a bad gasket and searched for the part number in the CD parts catalogue that I own. To my surprise, I noticed that there is no such thing as a gasket there. Is that true? Do we have to use liquid gasket sealer? Cheers!

Hi...use a rubber silicon sealant.....I bought some black goo from a local motor factors.

btw......you'll need a long torx bit to remove the sump, about 150mm long!!!

Just to say that I've just got off the Phone to AlfaWorkshop inquiring about the price of a Sump Gasket (I put a fist sized hole in my sump bottoming out my 156 2.4 JTD on Friday... I really need better springs/shocks in the front, but that's for another thread) and was told they don't have one.

So what Wrinx said's right.

Don't know when exactly, but they seem to have gone away from gaskets and used goo on most motors. The early 164 V6 listed a sump gasket and I've removed a few, but later ones are all glued on.

Make sure you get a suitable goo though - it needs to be Lambda probe friendly (assuming your car has one of course). Most types should be nowadays, but it's worth checking.

just goes to show, listen to the wrinkled one.
Of course.....:) - although technically he's wrong....;) - the sump on the TS is held on with Ribe bolts, not Torx :) - but torx will generally do!
