They sell self-tapping drain plugs that contain a center bolt, thus providing a new, but slightly smaller drain plug.

Can my EGR plate bolts be retapped into the side of my engine block?

It is possible to drill out and retap a hole in the block which is stripped, or which has a broken bolt shaft in it. Just be careful to go no deeper than the original. You can use first a tool like this

If your daughter is a shipfitter she may have access to other methods

However I am mystified by your assertion that the bolts melted. It is flatly not possible for an overheating engine to get hot enough to melt steel bolts in the block. The engine would seize up long long before that stage.

I have never heard of meltable bolts or screws (eg nylon or something) in an engine block, it would be just futile. You can find them in body trim, bumper bars, and dash assembly, but that's about it.

Did the mechanic make this claim? If so he is using controlled substances. I think it possible he broke the bolts off by being incompetent, and is now trying flimflam instead.

Do all wheel drive vehicals have to have all the same tread pattern?

It is preferable to have the same tread pattern all way round, now that said it is more important to have the same size in overall diameter on all four corners to stop the differentials and transmission running at different speeds front and back. Always have the same pattern across the axle.
If you have a selectable 2WD/4WD you could if you drive 90% of the time in 2WD get away with different sizes but it is not recommended. So back to the original question you should have the same pattern all round but there maybe a diameter difference in the tires with the different patterns and the different treads will wear at different speeds, of course front tires tend to wear quicker than back ones unless you burn out the backs a lot. That's why you rotate tires on 4WD vehicles.

What to do if water pump bolt breaks,97 mercury mountaineer

You have to drill the remainder of the bolt out of the hole. Start by taking a center punch and punch the dead center of the piece stuck in the hole, then take a small drill bit and get to work on the punch hole. Use a little wd40 on the bit to keep it from overheating and go about half speed on the drill (time consuming prosses). After you drilled deep enough grab the next size bit and continue to do this until you can fit a good size extracter in the hole to pull it out. If you do not have an extracter then continue to drill untill the bolt is completly out then retap new treads and find an oversized bolt.

I have a 99 Dodge Dakota r/t. The bottom bolt on the driver's side calliper is stripped. Do I need to replace the whole bracket or can I have someone just retap the hole

sometimes you can retap the whole, depending on the severity of the damage. it is worth a try. it is fairly common though to need to replace the bracket. good luck!

I have a 2004 Nissan Maxima. My car sounds loud when driving. I thought because I got new tires, that was the problem. It has been months since I got the tires and the sound is still there. It used to have...

Tire tread pattern plays a big part when it comes to road noise.

This tread pattern would be a loud tire.

These 2 tread pattern would be less noise.
The best type of tire you need is a non-aggressive touring tire.
