Metal chips in oil Help

So I try to change the oil in my daily driver,its a 99 plymouth neon w/ 2.0 sohc. Anyways as allways when I attempt anything on a newer car I get a disaster.
So the threads came out of the aluminum pan on the drain plug. I bought an oversized plug which leaked like a siv.So this time I bought the screw type w/ the butterfly nut that goes in the pan.Anyways in the drain oil I found a ton of chips of metal from the threads.If there is some metal in the oil in the bottum of the pan will the filter pick it up??
Pulling the pan is way beyond my capabilities and patience,for a FWD newer car.

Buy a couple extra quarts of cheap oil, or some kerosene, to pour into the motor to use as a flush. Don't run the engine, just loosely install the drain plug and pour in the flush, then drain it. Best you can do without removing the pan, filter should catch the rest if there is any.
