A friend of mine has stripped the threads on his crankcase drain plug. What are his options?? The car is an '87 190E.

I have had to install a timesert on these before and it worked well. It just has to be the correct depth and size. Then use a new plug.

On some rare occasions, the drain plug that is used is too short. Try a longer one and see.

Benzmac,
I was hoping that there might be an option other than relacing the oilpan but I need to ask one more question...what's a timesert.???? Is it anything like a helicoil?? Where can a timesert be purchased??
