    Oil Pan Bolt

    My oil pan bolt lost the rubber o-ring that goes around the base of the bolt and now it drips out. I bought a new one at the dealer but the bolt is to small (M12x1.75). The bolt in my oil pan now takes a 18MM wrench. Does anyone else have the same size and where can I get one? I tried using an o-ring but it is not sealing.

    Most auto parts stores stock replacement oil pan drain bolts. Check the HELP! section, or ask at the counter.

    If it takes a 18MM wrench then someone used the wrong bolt. Stock size is 15MM. Try backing out the bolt a bit befor the oil starts to drip and put some RTV on the bolt and tighten it back up, should solve the problem until you find a replacement...
