I already snugged several of the bolts a little but it's still leaks. Should I give them another snug or am I going to crack the gasket at 132,000 miles??

had the pan gasket seeping, so we dared to try tightening the pan gasket bolts and guess what...most of the bolts were loose or had become loose after the cork gasket shrank. Snugged up the bolts and haven't seen a drop of oil yet.
