I was talking about one of these.

Not the cheapest, but you can buy more plugs for ~$20.

Not everyone is nice enough to leave a note and I can't tell you how many times this kit has saved my ass

I have one of these because of this clown I used to work with. He would constantly strip drain plugs. I only have 1 of the replacement plugs left and only worked with him for a few months.

Aluminium oil pan threads strip out easy if over torqued. For what ever reason I've found Honda pans do it easier than most. Do you happen to have a picture of the drain hole? It could be repaired with a tool like this which works really good if you have the room. You may have to take it off the car to get enough room. At that point it may just me better to replace it. When looking at the cost of parts you need to keep in mind that the shop will get the part cheaper than you can most of the time then mark it up. If they go dealer it will be pricey but it's a quality part. Those pans can be in and out under an hour. Not hard to do at all. just need rtv for the gasket, a 10mm, i think a 17mm, and a torque wrench.

Rethread kit is about $100, if it will work on your car. Compare that to price of new oil pan and installing it yourself plus any tools that may be required that you don't have.


The proper thing to do would be to replace the oil pan. You got to know what you're doing to use that repair tool, or it's still gone leak.
