Does anyone else have oil leaks?

Replaced the pan gasquet 2 times on my 3.0 Sable. Keeps seeping oil. Used a Felpro with the screw in sticks to hold the gasket in place, put RTV in the places the shop manual ordered, and it still leaks. Is there a problem with the Felpro product? I took the 1st one back and demanded a replacement, which I got. Still leaked, but better. What am I doing wrong? Made sure that the flange was flat near the pan bolt holes to get even pressure on the gasket. The metal washers embedded in the gasket keep from tightening too hard, or did I not tighten it far enough? I am used to cork gaskets, not this new fangled rubber stuff.
Any help?

PS Taurus/Sable is NOT a FULL Sized car to whoever runs the forum. And not mentioned anywhere ...
