Broken Oil Pan Drain Plug
So I did a little searching around here, but I think i have a pretty unique problem.
I was changing the oil on my 2008 G6 3.5L, and started to unscrew the drain plug, but being that it was 7:30 AM and I guess my brain was not fully turned on yet, I turned the socket wrench clockwise and broke the drain plug.
The threading was left engaged to the drain pan with no hex head to unbolt it. So i decided to use a bolt extraction kit, and it pushed the thread into the engine.
My question is what is the clearance between the camshaft and the rods and the bottom of the drain pan?
Can I leave the threading in the bottom of the drain pan without damaging the engine? If not, are there detailed instructions available for removing the drain pan? A link would be very helpful.
