Oil Leak after oil change

I did an oil change a few thousand miles ago and now have a small leak from the plate that covers the internal oil filter/mesh. On a 2014, this doesnít have a gasket and the factory uses a sealant instead.

I tried Permatex Grey but either I didnít get good enough coverage or should have used something else, perhaps Black instead.

Any recommendations?

Permatex makes a non-hardening gasket sealer that can be used as a case sealer if the surfaces are true and clean. Think it's 80062. There is also Loctite 574 that I know is used for the same purpose but I have not used the latter. I try not to use the silicone stuff since dried blobs of it can break off on the inside and clog oil passages. If you do use it, use only a light smear which, actually, you should do with any of this stuff.

Get one of these and you'll never have to mess with Permatex again. I clean the sump filter on both of my Ducs ever oil change and this makes it much quicker

I'll try this for a quick fix as I'm off for a few days at the weekend.

I like this for the long term fix. Any tips on pulling the sump filter? It was stuck last time and so I punted on it for fear of breaking it...

I need a crush washer so Iíll see if the dealer has one of these as a stop gap until I can get the Corse cover.

The sump filter can be a bit of a pain - I use a pair of needle nose pliers and pull down slowly with constant pressure until it pops out. Just be careful not to squeeze too hard with the pliers or the plastic will crack

I had an issue with it leaking after the first time I removed the sump cover. I drained it and sealed it up again with gray silicone, but this time let it sit without oil overnight. No more leaks. I found this sump gasket used on other models some say it fits the multi. I have not ordered one but will next time I plan to remove the cover.

I've done the same thing in various situations. Only variation was use of Permatex 77B "Blue RTV" rather than the grey stuff.

I use no gasket but a product called Motoseal. Both surfaces clean and dry, then dab product around them both, assemble and fill w oil.
