Either drop the whole pan or get under the flange on the plug with something like this: http://www.sears.com/abn-the-abn-door-panel-plastic-fastener-clip/p-SPM12120087630?plpSellerId=AutoBodyNow&prdNo=6&blockNo=6&blockType=G6

That will allow you to put leverage on the plug while you unscrew it. You may be able to pull on it with vice grips also. When you get it out you will have to thread a new one.

    You have tried what? I gave you three things to do, drop the pan, use vice grips, get under the flange on the bolt.

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.

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.

I want to change my own oil. what side is the oil pan on?


If you do not know where the oil pan Is I would really consider getting help with your first oil change. The pan is on the bottom of the motor and has a plug on the bottom of it which is used to drain. The key is not to over tighten/strip the plug when putting back on. Make sure the oil filter is changed and tightened properly. It is def not a bad idea to have a 2nd person so assist for your first oil change!!

Stripped oil drain plug.


If you have enough left take a cold chisel and tap it with a hammer so it will cut into the bolt in the direction you want it to turn. Don't try to cut it off just to vibrate it enough to loosen it. It might take awhile.

My oil pan drain plug was stripped when i bought the car new and had an after market temp. plug. I would like to know how to take off the old oil pan and replace with a new one.


you need to purchase a chiltons repair manual. no overly difficult but the front cv drive shafts and starter may need to be removed. be sure to drain all oil out of pan before removing. use a new pan and gasket. before to check the tightness of the new pan's drain plug before adding oil.

I need to change my oil and filter on a BMW 745I 2002, does anyone know how to do it.


The oil filter is located underneath the vehicle next to the drain plugand accessed through a removable trim cover. If I remember correctly the drain plug is a 7mm allen. The oil filter has a drain plug in it to predrain before removing the filter cap. I do not recommend removing the plug because it strips out sometimes. Instead you need to use a socket and loosen the cap slowly. Your engine will take 8qts bmw syn 5w30 oil. I like the factory oil because it is proven extended life oil. When reinstalling the drain plug make sure to replace the crush washer. Also, make sure to replace the oring on the oil filter cap and lube before reinstalling.

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
