SOURCE: Need specific location of oil drain plug to change oil

I have owned a 1999 intrepid for 9 years. And have changed the oil many times in the 170,000 miles I've owned it. This car comes mostly with a 2.7 liter motor. It does some times have a 3.5 liter. As you open the hood,there is a sticker that tells you what motor it has. If you have the 2.7, between the two front wheels you have a cast aluminum oil "pan" You will see a oil filter sitting vertical, towards the passenger side.The bottom of the filter is almost flush with the bottom of the oil pan. Just to the side of the filter,towards the driver side, is a hex head oil plug. It will take a 11/16" wrench to remove it.Hope this helps lbreen

SOURCE: very hard knocking,

as much as i hate to say this, you probably have a rod knock and it is time to replace that motor. if a repair facility changed the oil, they are responsible.

SOURCE: Oil Change proceedure. Where is the oil pan drain

The drain plug will be at the lowest part of the oil pan. I would recommend you take it to a shop, if you cant seem to find it. If its not right, you can damage the engine, and thats a pretty big price for trying to save a few bucks.

How much to change the oil pan on 2006 dodge charger sxt


You can purchase universal drain plugs at about any parts store that are designed to repair stripped out pans. They have a bar with a nut that fits into your drain hole and a plug seal that fit around the drain hole. This is the cheapest way to permanantly fix your problem.

Striped oil pan plug(renault megane 2)how to remove oil pan ,what tool to use?


they make a plastic plug that will fit in a stripped hole on most oilpans..autozone carries these as do most autoparts stores..it uses a screwdriverlike tool to insert or remove..in cold weather it needs warmed up before insertion or it will rip apart..warm it in hot tap water..there are also certain tricks to repair these..a good welder can fix it fairly well..weld a fine thread nut over the hole and put the corresponding bolt in the nut..good luck..

How can i fix striped drain plug in a 1998 civic d16y8


Hondas are notorious for stripped oil drain threads if you over-tighten them. Remove the drain plug and take it to an Auto Parts store and have them check the size in mm and then tell them to check the pitch. Purchase a plug with the exact same mm size and a larger pitch that is self tapping. Oil-Tite makes them. Use thread cutting oil and slowly go in and out until the threads are all cut. Clean the threads out and it should not leak. If it does use a fiber gasket and it will seal. If the threads inside the pan are not stripped and the drain plug itself has the stripped threads you can buy a replacement at almost any parts store. Another option is to use just buy a larger drain plug and the use a tap & die to cut new threads in the il pan that match the new drain plug you bought.

My drain plug in the oil pan appears to be stripped. Turns, turns, & turns. What are my options?


Oil pan replacement is the last option. There are a couple alternatives. Usually, the hole can be re-tapped (new threads cut) and an over-sized plug can be screwed in. This is the preferred method. There are expanding rubber plugs that can be inserted in the hole. These are nice because it doesnt matter how bad the threads are stripped, it will seal. Most auto parts stores have solutions for this type of repair. One thing to pint out - it is not necessary torque these plugs tight. 10 ft-lbs of torque is usually all that is required.

Changing oil for first time, oil plug stripped. Got new but 1/2" 20 thread doesn't fit, like its too small and then stops turning when it does catch. Called around, this is the correct plug. Any...


When you say striped you maen the bolt boss and not the thread in the pan Your best bet is to go the the dealer with the old bolt in hand and they will match it up and make sure you get a new gasket or seal to the whole thing shouldn;t cost you more then 5or 6 dollars
