I used this on a 2009 Honda crv that the threads stripped out, customer travels a lot and oil changed about every 2 months. The only draw back was that there was not enough room to use a drill. But this was not a problem, probably better doing it by hand anyway. The drill worked effortless, the tap then worked great, the cutter for the lip needs to be used with caution though. Even by hand power, I think I went about a 1/16 to deep, even though it is supposed to stop, for a even flush fit. Could be checked by inserting sleeve, but did not want to get oil on it, since I left the oil continue dripping out when doing this to help oil tools. Then let vehicle sit over night and all oil stopped dripping to ensure a dry non oil fit with sleeve and lock tight. The new sleeve fit perfect and after a quick oil flush with the old oil, after filtering twice. Filled with new oil and now pan was fixed. So far no oil leaks, I did also install a ball valve to drain oil, so not to keep testing the new sleeve. Over all, the product works as described, just follow directions, go slow and you will have a tool that can fix most cars. The new oil pan was $130, stamped steel, plus the time to remove old one, then hoped new one sealed. This only took about an hour because I worked very cautiously and now I can fix more for the same price. Worth the money for my garage or even for a one time diy at home.
2006 Honda Ridgeline, I was able to do repair without removing oil pan, well thought out tool, easy to use, great product. Thanks.
