Sorry to hear that!!!!!! Unfortunatly getting a broken tap out is usually very problematic. If you can not get vise grips on the remains, see if you can use a small chisel and ketch some of the tap, sometimes you can tap it out with counter clock wise taps on the chisel.A complete nightmare Doug!
Stupid as I am, I broke the plug tap inside the hole.... and I broke it with a bad angle, I don't know what to do now.
New filter and pan are on the road and expected to be home on wednesday.
I think the best thing to do is to wait and weld something on the plug but the car is less than 2 feet off the ground and weld in this position will be very hard
Fu.. .... ....
I have never had any luck with tap removal tools as they usually just break also. Taps are made of Metal to hard to drill out at home. And I have never had any luck welding anything onto them while in place in a part. I have had to resort to using an EDM in the past. But that would require you to remove the engine and take it to a machine shop.
Picture might help us come up with other ideas. All I can do is wish you a lot of good will from south of the Boarder!!!!!!!
