transmission pan seal

What is the best seal for a transmission pan that is not perfectly flat? Are some gaskets better than others? What about silicon only? I have heard about rubber encapsulated metal gaskets but don't know where to find them.

rubber encapsulated metal gaskets are the best IMO (pictured on the right), especially if you have a problem sealing. I believe I got mine at the dealership, but I would check rockauto first

how warped is the pan? If it is a lot you may be better off finding a new pan in a junk yard or replacing it

I would use a gasket also though.
