Oil Pan Drain Plug Stripping and Weatherstrip Tearing
I tried to change my oil this weekend but the drain plug bolt is stripping. I couldn't even get good grip with my vise grips. My wrench seemed to get a hold, but kept skipping forward. The bolt seems to be a softer metal. Any advice to get it off?
Also, the soft rubber weatherstripping along the bottom of my driver side doorframe is developing a crack down the middle and pulling away from itself. Can I use RTV sealant to glue it back together, and will that repair last? If not, any idea how much that weatherstripping might be to replace?
Thanks for any help!
