Step dad tried changing my oil, but the plug was too tight. Being the not very handy man he is, he tries forcing it out and %26quot;hits%26quot;the oil pan. Now the drain plug won't tighten. Do I need to buy a new oil pan? If so, what else would I need to buy? Oil pan gasket as well? How difficult is it going to be to this?Oil leak because of damaged oil pan?
THEY SELL OVERSIZE DRAIN PLUGS THAT MAY TAKE CARE OF IT UNLESS HE BROKE THE WELDED INTERNAL NUT LOOSE FROM THE PAN.
In that case you will have to R%26amp;R the pan.
not knowing what vehicle you have can't say about appx cost/sOil leak because of damaged oil pan?
He hit the oil pan now the plug won't tighten? Sounds weird. They do have a fix at the local parts store. Go ask the counter guy for help. If you need to change the pan, you would also want to change the gasket; they rarely come off in one piece. Also there may be a cross member that's in the way. You will have to lift the engine up a few inches so you can remove the old oil pan.Oil leak because of damaged oil pan?
personally i would remove it and tig weld a new nut and plug on but most people dont have welders so you should just buy a new one and take away your step dads tools!!!
