    Exclamation How to drain the oil other than using a damage bolt plug please help !!!

    I went to a long road trip and when I change the oil in the meddle of the trip somehow I damage the thread from the oil tank where the screw goes in when I was screwing the bolt(on the bottom of the tank)....long story short I use J-B weld and I attached the screw to the hole since I couldn't fix the damage thread,now in a few more weeks I need to change the oil again but the screw is weld in the hole to exit the oil ,my question now is what can I do to drain the oil??? is there another screw somewhere else or what can I do please if somebody can help me( the screw is totally weld with the composite in the whole )

    Syphon the oil out of the fill hole. You should be able to get most if not all of the oil out that way.

    Well let's skip over the discussion about the inappropriate repair..........

    And say that I think you should get a replacement oil tank OR take it to a machine shop to drill and tap it for a larger bolt.

    You might be able to use a siphon syringe to get most of the oil out but what do you do if the JB Weld joint starts to leak somewhere down the line ??
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    Since I don't have any experience with J_B Weld I'm wondering how, short of replacing the pan, he's going to do a more permanent fix.

    He said "oil tank"......which I thought was a bit strange......but yes the only way to remove it is to drill it out.
    If there isn't enough spare metal to do that, replacement is about the only good option.....be it a pan or a tank.
