So, I changed my oil, right. I drive an Elantra (Corvette Killer - watch out!) So anyway, I put the drain plug back in. I threaded it in by hand, when it got snug, put the socket on it. I made one rotation, and suddenly it got very loose. I said some choice words, threaded the plug back out, and sure enough a ring of thin coiled metal came out... the threads from the oil pan. Shit... So I went to the parts store and got a single oversized drain plug, which is designed to carve new threads as you slowly torque it down. Of course, my oil pan has a weird shape, so it was hard to determine if it was straight. And, of course, it went in straight, and cockeyed itself. Great. Fuck me. So now my 2 dollar fixed turned into me taking it up the tailpipe. I'm considering on picking up a cheap tap and dye set. I found one for like 30 bucks... figured I'd try it and see what kind of luck I get. Only downside is - if this works, I'd have to locate a bigger plug to match the threads, since my existing plug will be too small. In short, I have no idea if this will work... can somebody give me their 2 cents? My thinking is, if threads were there originally, making new ones shouldn't matter. But some people have said oil pan metal tends to be softer and it's not as easy and blah blah fuckin dkljafl;sdjfaklsdfaklsdjf;aklsdfas. Thoughts?
