Does anyone have a cure for a leaking pan plug short of a new oil pan? The stock one was stripped and an oversize installed. I've tried everything I can think of.
Sorry if this has been answered before, the forums search function is not working.

Weld it closed? Just kidding.

Is it stripped again? If so either resize or replace.
It's not stripped again, it just won't seal. Drip drip drip.

Take it back to the oil change place that has the ham fisted high school dropout that stripped it out and make them replace the pan.:mwink:

Well I never use those places, I do it myself. Does that tell you who has a ham fist?

Have yout tried one of the thick teflon or rubber coated gaskets?
My original Moroso pan leaked (drip, drip, drip). It came with a smooth style nylon gasket. I put a Saturn oil plug gasket on and it solved my problem. It is a steel ring with an inner rubber gasket. Get it at Pep Boys, etc.

Good luck, Ed www.edgesz28.com

Try a GM air conditioning seal washer. It's a metal washer with rubber bonded to each side. PM me your address and throw a couple in an envolope & send them out monday.
