Default Oil pan gasket keeps blowing out

I have a 2000 ford ranger xlt, the oil pan gasket has blown out once and i pulled the engine replaced the gasket and also replaced the PCV valve, after about 6 to 8 weeks of driving the oil pan gasket actually split in half and blew out again, does anyone know what else could be causing this?

To much crankcase pressure usually the case on a naturally aspirated, or turbo charged engine

oil pan itself is warped or damaged

Have you considered using black RTV silicone instead of a gasket? it will work and be just as effective
