Default HOW TO... Fix Stripped Leaky Oil Pan Plug

this will permenantly repair the oil drip issue from the oil pan plug after it has been stripped,,The dealer will charge you $ 300 or moe to replace oil pan and labor, using this kit , there is no need to replace the oil pan.

You need a time-sert kit # 1415 you can get it from Matco tools or directly form timesert..

inserts 14 by 1.5

all the instructions will be included in the kit..

you also need a permanent oil valve , it is spring loaded, so you never have to remove it,, you can get the valve at,,,

http://www.fumotovalve.com/ ....or 1-425-869-7771.... the valve you need is F-106..

i have done dozens of these and they work great, you can also install these instead of the regular plug ,don't wait till they get stripped thus avoiding future complications,, especially if you take the car to those quick lube places..

http://www.timesert.com/html/mtrcsert.html ,go to this site to see what the kit looks like , it also has video instructions , download it and watch it

it is aluminum,, you got the correct part # it costs around $ 110 at the dealer .. so $ 75 might be right

If you have the time, and equipment.........
I used to drop off the oil pan and use a bolt and with nut on the inside of the pan.
draw down the nut tight and tack weld it in place.
However I've had good luck with timeserts as well
