you dont really NEED a torque wrench, but it sounds like what happened was someone had it replaced once, and they tightened the bolts too far, and that makes the filter bulge...what kind of shop told you this?

Default RE: Newbie Q: Oil Pan Gasket replacement

Just got a oil pan gasket from local store, it olnly cost me 16 dollars, so go to the nearest one and buy one for the same amount, if your unsure of your mechanical inclineness, may you should have the shop do it, or if you have a buddy that is good with engines, ask him if he'll do it for like 110 dollars or something. But dont let yourself get ripped by paying 30 $ for the gasket. Buy one from autozone, take it to them, if they say they wont take the part, tell them that you want them to finish whatever work there doing, and your gonna take the car somewhere else then. Hope i posted this in time to help you. Our gasket will be the same, accords from 1990 through 1997 had the same oil pan and gaskets. good luck.
