Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica
How are you doing? Can you please do me a favor...have you heard of replacing the oil pan because the plug that is unscrewed to drain the oil gets worn out. In my case the bolt that is unscrewed from the oil pan, the threads have come off the bolt and are stuck in the oil pan walls where the bolt is to be screwed in after the oil is drained. The dealer is telling me due to normal wear and tear this happened because one part is made of metal, the other part is made of aluminum, and this happens. I hope this makes since...Thanks and have a great day,
If you fequnt any quick lube places they use air tools to remove the drain plug and it often strips the threads in the oil pan. So in answer to your question, yes the oil pan needs to be replaced or else the iol leaks out at a pretty fast rate. I would suggest gettting this and future oil changes done at your local Chrysler dealer.

JUST TAP OUT THE HOLE TO THE NEXT SIZE BOLT THAT WILL FIT AND MAKE SURE BOLT IS AS SHORT AS POSSABLE , OR GET ONE OF THOSE SELF TAPPING PAN PLUGS MOST NAPA,S HAVE THEM ... ALSO STOP OVER TIGHTING THE PLUG IT (DOE,S NOT) HOLD THE ENGINE IN THE CAR!

Take the pan off and to a good weld shop that can wweld aluminum.
They can weld in a new "boss" (threaded piece) and away ya go!
