When i went to drain my transmission fluid today, like usual i went to losen the drain plug (bolt) and it just spins and spins. I do not know how the threads got to be stripped and now it wont tighten anymore either so now i there is a slow drip of fluid. Is there a way to tell if it is just the bolt threads that are stripped or is it the pan threads? and next, what is best way to fix it/re-thread? im debating bringing it to the dealership or trying to take care of it tomorrow myself...just not sure how to get the bolt out.
thanks in advance...it has gotten to be a big headache
