RTV isn't a good product to help seal gaskets. I learned from my mechanic buddy that it'* best not to use it unless necessary or called for in the application. If you clean surfaces up properly and do a good job, it should seal with the gasket only.

The only time I use RTV is if the mating surface(*) are pitted. A light skim coat of RTV goes on to seal the pits only.

Typically only water/coolant stuff. I never use it on oil pans or trans pans.

For all of you .... Do not get the Filter and gasket kit from Autozone... They will sell you a kit that contains the cork gasket<----- Worthless...

Advanced sell a kit with a rubber gasket( not near the quality of the factory gasket but a lot better than the cork by far ).. I have been using the rubber gaskets for the better part of 4 or 5 years and have had no issues... The cork was leaking before I could leave stripes in the road

Yeah, better to leave stripes on the road than drips on the road...

As mentioned, the cork was used on the 91 SSE with RTV.... It leaks and leaks and leaks and leaks.. I'll be fixing that soon as I have a Filter kit with the rubber gasket... I can't stand a car that leaks fluids

I believe that its $30+

But for the price of the Filter kit from Advanced, I think its $16 for the filter and pan gasket, and the fact that I like to change it yearly I just get the kit.. But It would be nice to have a factory style gasket...

I have seen listed a gasket for the trans pan at advance that was $25ish I think... And it was a Fel Pro gasket.. I'm wondering if its equall to an OEM pan gasket..

Probably is the factory gasket. Merely wearing the Fel Pro name.
