Oil plug thread size?

3 posts in this topic

Hey there. So first time on here. I own a 2008 Smart fortwo passion gasoline and the last place that changed my oil stripped the oil pan. I am either going to put ahelocoil insert in or use one of those eco plugs as a temporary solution. The oil plug is in with the new oil change finger tight and was wondering if anyone knew what the thread size is so i will have the parts ready when i fix it?

Welcome to the site....
I have in the past had the same happen by some over muscled idiot,myself...lol turn it past the magical torque number and stripped it out. Not the Smart but other junkers...lol.  While driving around waiting for replacement bits and bobs...I usually clean the daylights out of old plug and casting and then snug it up  and silicon the daylights out of it just in case finger tight lets go....just saying is all....cheaper than a new engine....lol...augh...!

Sorry do not know correct answer to your posted question, my pan doesn't have above mentioned plug, I wish it did!........Damned diesels......
