do not dive this like this more than you have to depending on the rate of fluid loss if its very rapid do not drive it could damage your engine ur mechanic should of changed this bolt when he changed your oil it is very inexpensive and most major oil change places do this every time they change your oil you need this repaired pronto but be very careful of driving it and check your fluid level first hope this helps ps if your engine gets damaged bc of this your warranty ont cover this damage

how do you know the drain plug was stripped? Do you see it dripping from there, or have you tried the plug is loose? If really stripped, then either you need the pan rethreaded for a bigger bolt, or you need a new pan. Rethread and bigger bolt is about $100 job. New pan is about $400.
