Federal-Mogul Corporation : Innovative New Fel-Pro® Oil Pan Gasket First to
Address Repair Issues on 2009-2012 Hyundai, Kia Engines
Among More than 100 New Fel-Pro Parts, Problem Solving One-Piece Gasket Offers
Fast, Reliable Repair on Engines Originally Sealed with RTV Silicone Beads
Southfield, Michigan, June 13, 2013.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
(NASDAQ: FDML) 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,
Fel-Pro oil pan set #OS30822; conversion set #CS26414
2009-2012 Hyundai V6 3.8L DOHC
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.
