I knew this was coming sooner or later. The threads are stripped for the oil drain plug. I realized it was leaking when I saw oil coming from under my car after my oil change like 2 hours ago. I backed the plug out and put some of that tape around the threads and tightened it back up. It seems to be holding. My question... How hard is it to remove the oil pan? I have a 2001 Corde with the 2.7. I can get an oil pan from this guy but I have to get it off myself. He doesn't care if I ruin the car trying to pull parts off of it. Do I need to remove the sway bar. The car is on ramps in the front. What tools do I need to take with me to get it off? I will wait till next oil change to switch them out if mine seems to have stopped dripping for now but I am getting a good price on the oil pan and need to get it off the car before he junks it. It is a 2002 Corde with a 2.7. Can I just take all the bolts off and wiggle it out from above the sway bar. I have been searching the forums for like 30 minutes now for this and found only a little bit of info.
