Remove the pan & silver braze a nut the same thread size
to the inside of the pan

That is the only permanent & proper fix I ever do

You could braze the oe thread that came loose if not stripped

You could get another pan but why spend the money,
fix yours

Anyone have problems with the Mac 2400 air compressor leaking oil.


Sounds like your threads are stripped or the plug is the wrong one.

I'd try some teflon tape several turns, after you remove it and verify the threads match and are not stripped.

Although rare, there is such a thing as the tank being cracked, as well, at the drain hole.

For most applications, there are "oversize" screw plugs available at some car parts stores.

God bless your efforts.

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.

Leaking Oil Plug '92 Olds 88 Royale LS


I wonder if the sealing washer that is on this plug has been lost. These washers are usually aluminium or have a rubber insert, and without it there you are trying for a steel on steel seal.

A stripped thread can often still be backed out, that's no guarantee. Try for a tightening torque of about 15-20 ft-lb and if you get to that it isn't stripped.

Don't worry if it IS stripped, you can buy anoversize self-tapping plug.

I have 2004 VW Toureg, went to change engine oil and it has some plug in it that says thailand on it. It looks like a possible temporary plug. Was wondering if previous owner stripped it and put bandaid on...


changing the oil drain plug is actually normal maintenance. they are used and abused so over time they will start to leak. easiest way to know if it was stripped; next time you change your oil take a good look at the threads on the oil pan. are they rounded or kinda sharp? if it was stripped its not a big concern as long as it was re-threaded properly and the correct size and thread type installed afterwards. you cna get all the proper tools too do this your self at your local auto parts store.

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.

Just got a call from the shop doing my oil change and they told me that the oil drain pan plug is stripped. Wouldn't this happen from over-tightening and would likely have been caused by them? If they try...


Stripped threads are usually caused by improper thread alignment when reinstalling the plug or if you severly over tighten to the point of stripping, but this is very hard to do. If you had the vehicle since day one and they were the only ones changing the oil, then yes, it could be a fault of their own. Otherwise it may have been done awhile back, but it took this long before some actually said something about it.

You should replace the pan. Pan saver plugs are for temporary use only.
