hopefully you only laugh for a few minutes then maybe help me out with something constructive
went to go change my oil today in regular fashion
jacked up the car, put down a sheet of plywood, got drain pan start unwrenching drain plug, drainplug comes loose, spins forever.... DUH! I've just tightened it and stripped the threads
heres where you laugh.. now I need some help
Good news: plug isnt leaking doesnt come out when I pull it takes some effort to even spin
Bad news: gotta change the oil sometime
heres what I'm thinking to do...
force it out drain the oil, go buy a reamer and tap and make it fit a slightly bigger oil plug
since I dont have the time to just lift the engine and swap a new oil pan...
As I already have the oil, and its not leaking, if I throw some gasket maker on it (for security) and take it to a shop to do(school sucks), would you think it would cost me under $100 for them to retap and fit a new drain plug? /try and tell me I need a new oil pan
or is there just a better way?
