Hadn't time to examine the threads or see if the new bolt will work - had to get going to work. I'll finish it tonight.
I say unto you, do your own damn oil changes so you don't have to go through this crap.
I realize you had to get to work, (and I assume you're driving a different vehicle) but it sounds like you left it with the plug out, which means no oil in the pan. I hope there's zero chance of anyone else in the family deciding to take it for a drive until you finish it?
