    so I changed the oil, rotors and brakes on my wife's 98 Saturn...2 problems now...:mad:

    1. when I turn the steering wheel to the right i hear a clicking noise that seems to come from the left wheel...but its only when turning the wheel to the right..

    2. Ive changed the oil hundreds of times but i don't know how the oil plug bolt managed to break, and i was left with the oil plug screw head in my hands and the rest of the screw stuck in the oil pan. so therefore I couldn't change my oil. :mad: now I have to figure out a way on how to get the damn screw out...its freaken flush to the pan! grrrr...

    any ideas?:eek:

    any ideas?

    1. Pull your wheel and check the brakes

    2. Several options here
    a) pull the pan, center punch the plug from inside the pan, then use a drill bit. It will spin it right out

    b) leave the pan attached, center punch the plug, use a left handed drill bit (yes they do exist) and drill the plug. It will turn it out also

    c) If neither of the above methods work, finish driiling the hole and use an easy out
    or
    d) trade it in as-is for a Toyota.

    ^Concur on all. They make replacement plugs for just that kinda thing. The left handed drill bit gig works well....Not that I've done it to several cars before...
