Re: Cracked my oil pan - what should I do?
Wow, usually I just see them split once from over torquing. Let me brush up on my Queens English, yours is Properly f**ked. Like Spagiratwink said, some thinks are better left to feel than torque wrenches anyway, I agree that sump plugs are one of them, never used a torque wrench in my life. I would start looking for a used pan. A quality weld job and re-tap will likely run as much or more than a used pan (assuming of course that you can get one there), and since you'll have to remove the pan either way...
