If you loosen the Pan there is no gasket just sealant on it so if you cannot re-seal it you could end up with a leak somewhere else.
Also, in theory ounce the Pan is loose you are supposed to align it with a Special Tool before you tighten it.
What does the tool do ? I'm getting ready to pull mine.
