I have a 2008 mazda 3 1.6 diesel. After an inspection under the car I believe the oil pan is leaking on the joint.
After searching I can't seem to find any gaskets that fit the sump.
Do mazdas of this year have a gasket seal or is it just a sealant that is used or am I just looking in the wrong places for a gasket.
Any help much appreciated.

Something a Mazda dealership parts dept can easily answer

The service manual for the 2.0 and 2.3 just shows silicone lining the pan, to the inside of each bolt hole -- I don't expect the 1.6L would be any different. Take care to clean the bolts off well, so old sealant doesn't get crammed up into the block and cause micro cracks (per the service manual caveat).
