Question about ATVs
Sounds like it was stripped on or really tight. I worked on a 2002 a few weeks ago. There is no easy fix. It must be removed, it must be re-threaded and if drilled out the shaving will cause considerable additional damage & cost. Short of being lucky you may need to replace the plug & housing & that housing was over $300 for DIY. Good luck. Maybe you can drill holes in the plug for a spanner tool. You Can fill the holes with JB Weld later. Then re-tap the threads. Be sure to remove the casing & clean everything out. If the shavings get into the stator mechanism you won't be happy. Good luck.

Most likely the thermostat is sticking. Get the system flushed (get that rusty liquid out of the system), replace the thermostat & put in new coolant. Should fix it.

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

I would have the converter checked for back pressure. if it is plugged it can cause excessive Engine pressure. if it is not plugged then you have excessive blow by or a malfunctioning PCV system it sounds like.
