I just reinstalled the oil pan in my 94 Camry 4 cyl. I used the Permatext Ultra Grey which seems to be best replacement for the Toyota FIPG. According to the instruction, the gasket completely cures in 24 hours.

Does that mean I cannot put in oil and start the engine for 24 hours?

Is that the same with the Toyota FIPG?

I've never had a problem after an hour of so with Permatex. I usually check by poking the excess that squeezes out. If it indents, and does not spring back, it's too early (it's just "skinned" over), if it springs back, you're usually good to go.

No shop can wait 24 hours before returning the car to the customer, but OP will get better results the longer he can wait. The instruction on the website also says for better results wait overnight, I suppose the most of the full strength develops after several hours.

However, if OP needs to use the car, after several hours already it's ok to drive off. Permatex RTVs are excellent and hold up well.

I use this stuff almost everyday, its awesome. I've never waited at all, and have never had any issues. Even when doing water pumps, no need. Slap the pump on, fill it up. Almost unbelievable.
