Default LP640 Oil Pan Drain Plug Repair

First oil change for us....set the base line.

Single jack up to Jack stands not very difficult. Go left and right on front then raise the back to follow.

Oil filter removal easy.

Oil canister drain, big m34 reducer came out instead of the m18 plug....Removed the under body triangluar cover, cleaned everything up then re-installed the reducer with a bit of teflon around the crush washer and a dab of loctite blue, torque to 40nm. with counter spanner on the goose neck nut.

Oil pain drain plug threads were not in great condition, the front thread in poor condition. Seems to me the last few changes the plug was over tightened.

Dropped the oil pan and took it to a local engine repair shop for TIME SERT installation. Owner Vance seemed confident he can make it like new.

pictures to follow.

great post

I am going through an oil change, the forward plug STRIPPED so I cant wait to see the pictures.
Bought the new plug, but have been worried about causing more damage trying to get the stripped plug out.
So will probably remove the pan to avoid further damage.

Yes, my front was the same.

Installing a new plug most likely will not fix the problem as the plug is harder steel and the pan is softer aluminum.

I'm supposed to pick up my pan today.

Here's the before picture.

Thanks for the Pictures.

Any chance you have some pictures of the Pan removal, or any hints would be appreciated.

Pan removal is straight forward.

I have my car up on jack stands, just enough to let me in on a crawler.

use big adjustable wrench with duct tape on the jaws to open the 36mm oil hoses.

I made a simple cardboard template to keep the m10 pan screws around the perimeter in the same position at installation.

remove all the screws and lower the pan. Careful not to break the paper gasket.

Not much to it,,,,,,

I suggest have the higest quality engine repair shop install the M16x1.5 TIME-SERTS (not helicoils). Make sure they don't recess the TimeSert to allow better plug crush washer sealing.

My local guy did a fine job, I put my pan on the bench, filled it with water to test for leaks. All looks ok.

Nice!

A lot of people would not have taken the time to correct it.

Maybe, My OCD gets triggered thinking about stripped threads.

for only $50 repair it's kind of crazy not to do it.
