How can i get my oil pan gasket on easily without it sliding??? I just got it on the other day and then my car was leaking oil so took it off and it has a tear on it. Can i just use the glue or do i have to use the gasket???

There is no easy way other then a lot of care and caution. Yes use the gasket and no glue isn’t the answer, you could use a LITTLE glue to hold the gasket in place as you are assembling everything but that’s all.
I’ve been it the trade for a few years now and occasionally I still hurt a gasket when I’ve been a little to rough with it.

Is your oil pan cast aluminum or pressed steel...probably the cast alum. If it is the pressed steel make sure th pan surface is level all the way around. If alum, clean all the surfaces with spray carb cleaner and an old T shirt. Make sure all cleaner / oil is out of the bolt holes. I would use permatex hitack on the gasket, spray on let it get tacky, then put it on the pan. I do not think I would put any on the engine block side, or reverse and glue the gasket to the block leaving the exposed gasket surface free of permatex. then put on the pan and tighten the bolts. You may want to get new bolts and lock washers. Do NOT forget to tighten a little at a time, do a bolt on one corner then the other, then another corner, in a an x pattern, do one bolt then the directly across from it.
permatex hi tack looks like strwberry jam...without the pieces of strawberry.
