Default oil pan

Hey all----just tried changing my '92 Teg's oil today, & the plug won't go
back in the pan. A mechanic once told me the pan or bolt was stripped quite
some time ago, but I've never had anyone who's changed my oil in the past
mention it. I also noticed my oil pan has 1 or 2 screws missing, & 1 was
almost out (of course, the loose one was the one directly underneath the
headers, & it's tough to get to, so I couldn't tighten it in).
Question is, is it common to have a stripped oil pan (threads---where the
bolt goes in)? I think I'm just gonna order a new one & try that. thanx a
bunch

Yeah I think it is common. I have 91 Integra that had a stripped pan
hole. The mechanic installed one of those thread cutting repair
plugs....worked fine no leaks.

Thanx---I'll check into this Thexton device (?) that fixes the threads. Got
the oil pan today in the mail, & I'll get my car to a mechanic tomorrow, &
I'll see if he can fix the threads on the (existing) pan first.

yeah,, quicklubes impact guns ruined alot of oil pans next time you
see a ( mechanic )removing and reinstalling the drain plug with a impact gun
(at any garage) let him know how you feel about 100$ oil pans and X number
of hrs labour to remove and replace the pan . and ask him if he,d rather
use a wrench and save himself/or his employer the expense

I had a nut welded on the inside of the oil pan on my `92 yesterday. In my
opinion, that's the way to go. It only took 30 minutes to pull the oil pan.

Hey this is an old thread, but just wanted to say thanx a bunch for the
feedback. I just went & found a new pan (with new bolt) assembly for ~$80 or
so (USD) & had that thrown on. I started to do it myself, but noticed that
it went way under the header there & I just went & had it done. Thanks
again!
