The pan is so thin that you probably can't repair it. The best thing to do is replace the pan. You might get one at a junk yard, but the best thing to do is order a new one. There is a website called autopartswarehouse.com. You can get parts for less there.

SOURCE: have a oil leak on oil pan on my f350,got the oil

Remove the motor mount bolts and raise the engine slowly. Don't dent the oil pan when raising the engine! After the engine is raised, you should have enough clearance to remove the pan.

If your only having a problem with the plug have a machinist work on it, he can remove your stripped bolt by drilling it out, if the pan thread is stripped on an aluminum pan a new helicoil insert can rebuild your pan thread.

Oil drain plug to open is anti clock wise


I don't think I have seen an oil drain plug that is left hand threaded, it may have been put in wrong and your thread is stripped either on the plug or the oil pan or both. Good luck

What is involved with replacing the oil pan on 1998 GMC Sierra?


  • Step 1 Raise the truck using the proper equipment. Use a ramp or a jack and jack stands to support the vehicle securely by following all directions for use provided by this equipment's manufacturer.
  • Step 2 Drain all oil from the Silverado by placing an oil drip pan under the vehicle's engine block, directly under the oil drain plug. The drain plug is located on the oil pan, between the vehicle's tires underneath the vehicle. Use a wrench to loosen and remove the plug allowing the oil to drain into the pain below.
  • Step 3 Notice the various items attached to the oil pan or in the way of the oil pan dropping. For the oil pan to drop, remove the negative battery cable, front differential (only for four-wheel drive vehicles) and the under body shield by using a wrench or socket set.
  • Step 4 Remove the oil pan shield by loosening the four bolts holding it in place along the edges of the shield. Then, remove the cross brace, oil filter, the transmission to oil pan bolts and the oil level sensor.
  • Step 5 Follow the removal of those pieces by removing the bolts from the two front wiring harness, the engine wiring harness retainer, engine oil cooler pipe to oil bolts and the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer using a wrench. Located the closeout covers and bolts located on each side of the engine and remove them.
  • Step 6 Disconnect each of the oil pan bolts using a wrench that will allow the oil pan to drop. The oil pan gasket will also fall off and replacement should occur before reinstalling the oil pan.

    Two questions: On A 2002 4x4 Blazer, is the oil drain plug on the oil pan? The only plug I see is under/behind the engine. Also does it turn counter clockwise to loosen, I was doing that and won't loosen.


    Yes the oil drain plug is in the oil pan and the oil pan is on the motor.The plug is in the rear part of the oil pan and you need a 15mm wrench or socket to remove it.It does come off counter clockwise.Sometimes they are tightened to tight and can be hard to remove.Good luck.

    OIl drain plug removal 99 dodge neon DOHC


    It appears that the threads are stripped on the bolt or pan. To remove the bolt, try having a helper put a couple of screwdrivers (flat) between the bolt and pan, and while you turn the drain bolt to loosen, have them apply pressure downward on the bolt. If you have a carpenters flat pry bar, that would probably work even better to apply downward pressure to help remove the bolt. Next, you'll have to go to a parts store to get a drain plug that is made to replace one w/ bad threads. Let me know how you do. countrcurt0
