Federal-Mogul’s Fel-Pro Releases Problem-Solving One-Piece Gasket

New Fel-Pro oil plan gasket addresses repair issues on 2009-'12 Hyundai, Kia engines.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Engine rebuilders and automotive repair technicians who have struggled to achieve a reliable seal when re-installing the oil pans on many 2009-2012 Hyundai and Kia V6 engines now have a fast, easy solution: a new one-piece replacement gasket from Federal-Mogul’s Fel-Pro brand. This problem-solving new gasket design – available in complete oil pan and conversion sets – is among more than 100 new parts recently added to the Fel-Pro line. Fel-Pro gaskets, “The Gaskets Professionals Trust,” are designed and manufactured in the brand’s state-of-the-art facility in Skokie, Ill.

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 Fel-Pro 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 new Fel-Pro sealing solution 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
 
•2009-2012 Hyundai V6 3.8L DOHC (Genesis, Borrego) Fel-Pro oil pan set #OS30823; conversion set #CS264201
 
Among the other new gaskets and related components now available through Fel-Pro distributors are 36 additional stock and performance head gaskets and sets, 14 new valve cover gasket sets, nine additional stock and performance intake manifold gasket sets and dozens of other parts for virtually any type of automotive engine.
