    oil pan stripped

    I think I just stripped my oil pan threads by over-tightening the plug. I thought the plug was stripped at first, so I went over to Autozone and got a replacement. But then I tried to use the replacement, but it just keeps on going without locking. This sucks major booty.

    Anyone have an suggestions?

    Does anyone know how much it'll cost to replace the oil pan at a Subaru dealership?

    Anyone think I can just buy another pan and replace it myself?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    in order to fix the threads, you need to buy the kit to fix the damaged thread (the name escapes me right now).

    Basically, you drill out the damaged threads, retap (carefully), then wind in the thread repair coil and break the tang off. The kit is not cheap either, though cheaper than a new oil pan.
