When a mechanic installs a bolt of any sort, they do it with IMPACT wrenches(PLUG BOLTS INCLUDED). Squirt it with liquid wrench or locktite release fluid and let set for two hours, squirt again and use the EXACT size wrench...Standard or metric. Turn the correct direction and it will release...NEVER let a mechanic use an air ratchet on plug bolts again.

Oil drain plug won't tighten chrysler concorde.


If you are sure it is leaking from the drain hole the most likely culprit would be the washer for the drain plug. Over time it becomes less effective because it gets crushed every time people tighten it. You should be able to replace it at any auto parts store.

How can i fix striped drain plug in a 1998 civic d16y8


Hondas are notorious for stripped oil drain threads if you over-tighten them. Remove the drain plug and take it to an Auto Parts store and have them check the size in mm and then tell them to check the pitch. Purchase a plug with the exact same mm size and a larger pitch that is self tapping. Oil-Tite makes them. Use thread cutting oil and slowly go in and out until the threads are all cut. Clean the threads out and it should not leak. If it does use a fiber gasket and it will seal. If the threads inside the pan are not stripped and the drain plug itself has the stripped threads you can buy a replacement at almost any parts store. Another option is to use just buy a larger drain plug and the use a tap & die to cut new threads in the il pan that match the new drain plug you bought.

The oil pan nut plug wont tighten down because threads are striped what do i do too fix


Most auto parts stores have a solution for this problem. Explain the situation to them, they will sell you a self-tapping drain plug that cuts new threads. This will replace your OEM drain plug. I have used them several times, they work if directions are followed. These drain plug replacements usually come in 1, 2, and 3 "oversize" sizes. Not difficult to install, not expensive. Good luck.

The dealer would replace the oil pan instead of fixing the threads.
