Went to a local auto store "Advanced auto parts" but they didnt have the correct size. I tried looking online but couldn't find it either. Anyone know of any places I might be able to find it locally or on the internet.
Well went to a ace hardware which carried the taps. They advised me that I should go with the next higher size since the pan was stripped. They said a 9/16 tap with the correct plug would be sufficient since its slightly larger than 14mm. I belive its around 14.5 mm
Does this sould right. I felt it makes sene since if the oem size is 14mm x 1.5, why would you tap the same size.
Also, this is for a pt cruiser with a aluminum pan. Are there any precautions I should take to prevent it from potentially cracking. The 9/16 is barely bigger so it shouldn't cause an issue but I wasn't sure. Ive read that they sell an oversize drain plug which taps itself as its threaded. Could this be another option?
