Volvo Aluminum Oil Pan Problems - Drain Plug Thread Repair

Volvo Aluminum Oil Pan Problems - Drain Plug Thread Repair

WiseAutoTools.com © Summary: Aluminum thread repair problems addressed, see our video on the Volvo drain plug thread repair issue. If dealing with a stripped aluminum oil pan on your Volvo and the drain plug will no longer tighten up, you’ve come to the right place. Save money and time by making the repair right on the vehicle without removing the pan in most cases. All that’s needed is a little room to work directly in front of the oil drain hole. The M18x1.5 Volvo aluminum oil pan thread repair kit, pn Time Sert 1815C by the Time Fastener Company is far superior to parts store temporary kits/plugs. Install a new set of threads in the oil pan that's made of steel which is stronger the the originals.

By using this kit the threads are upgraded to steel which is ten times stronger than aluminum! After using this kit, the repaired aluminum oil pan will still accept the original size drain plug M18x1.5. *Note if you’ve used an oversized drain plug this kit may not be large enough because the hole would have been enlarged. Time Sert inserts are solid as opposed to Helicoil which are a thin coil of wire which may leak or come back out with the drain plug. Why take a chance losing the oil in your engine? Visit the Time Sert 1815C product listing for more information at WiseAutoTools.com or call 800-734-8665. A partial application of the M18x1.5 kit is listed below. Always verify your size before ordering.

Question: What about all the metal shavings from drilling and tapping?

Answer: The metal in the bottom of the pan is flushed out using old oil or new oil before finally installing the drain plug. Once the oil starts coming out metal free, the flush is complete.

Question: Do I have to remove the oil pan to do this repair?

Answer: No. In most cases the repair is done right on the engine so a lot of labor and down time is saved.

Question: A local shop wants over a $1,000 to install a new oil pan. Will your kit work?

Answer: Our kits are designed and manufactured in the USA and are very dependable. As long as the hole was not made bigger with some other type of repair or over-sized drain plug our kit will work flawlessly. Better yet, besides saving money the threads will actually be stronger.
