Fire, Fire, get a torch preferably a plumber's torch with a propane bottle get it red hot and some vice grips, the heat will shrink the metal it should come out pretty easy, unless you have nothing to grip in that case , torch it chisel and hammer. Not really a easy solution if you have to used a chisel n hammer good luck FIRE!!!

Need a pic to be able to help you. I'd soak it with PB BLASTER or Liquid Wrench penetrating oil, then hit the surrounding boss,not the oil plug, with a propane torch for a few seconds.
Sometimes you can drive the next smaller socket(metric onto SAE or vice-versa) onto the plug.
A shop can weld a new bolthead to it and get a fresh grip. Unhook both battery cables,unplug the computer, and ground the car body if welding is done. At least that's what I'd do. don-ohio (:^)

Lug nut issues


Your factory custom wheels are designed to use a specific lug nut, most of these lugnuts today include a built in washer that contacts the wheel surface. Your maintenance of re-torqueing the lugnuts after 100 miles following wheel removal is exceptional, and textbook...(some wheel manufacturers recommend this after 50 miles:) I am a long time wheel person through many years of performance wheel applications. My guess would be that a previous owner had installed custom wheels, and removed them at time of selling your Santa Fe...they mistakenly left the aftermarket lug nuts on your car...and these lug nuts do not contact your wheel where they should be to remain tightened...Don't buy new lug nuts unless you can test this possibility first...All salvage yards would have inventory of factory wheels and lugnuts...Also shop on line...confirm the size of your wheel studs...ie 12 mm rht..."right hand thread" and search for someone selling factory wheels...many auto parts stores will confirm your wheel stud thread size any offer replacement sets too. Hope this helps.

The lug nuts on my 2003 Subaru Outback seem to come loose. It's worse with the front wheels. Recently 3 lugs on one wheel were ready to fall off when I discovered the problem. What can I do about it? Is...


are the rotors, rusty?? salt area??? aluminum? steel? lug studs clean? threads in lug nuts good? lightly oiled? the wheels must be clean and all mating surfaces clean, then the lug nuts should be torqued to spec 60-80lbs? maybe torque them and drive a few miles and torque them again, then again after a week.

Can not remove lug nut caps 2003 x -type jaguar


I have an 04 xj8. the lug nuts are a good bad example of half baked engineering. the lug nuts are fabricated from ugly steel with an 11/16 hex end. to beautify this, Jaguar overlays the nut end with a stainless steel 3/4 inch cap, crimped to the nut. On top of this, the nut is to be torqued to 90+ ft-lb! The only way to remove the lug nut without damage is with a SIX POINT socket and a breaker bar or an impact wrench. Using a 12 point socket will deform the cap, causing the wrench to spin on the cap and or the cap to spin on the nut itself. If that has happened, it is possible to recover using a 15 oz or thereabouts ball peen hammer and a deep 3/4 inch impact socket (the black ones). Line up the socket to the cap, doing a best guess to where the flats are and give the socket a light blow. Keep trying that until the socket seems to stick on, then hit it harder. Eventually you will find the right point and the socket will go on and reform the cap. Then a breaker bar can remove the cap/nut. New assemblies can be had for about $6 from "partsbin" or "autohausaz".

Hole in oil pan


Yes you can do it in the car.The only thing that may hinder you is you have to remove the Y-pipe and the nuts on the studs may be extremely rusted,so make sure you soak them really good with PB Blaster or eqivalent before trying to take them loose.
